    good thing you said "almost"...because I can think of a few countries that do not have much to complain either....Canada of course. And then France, Ireland, Sweden, England, etc...seems to be beautiful countries to me. This picture...make me sick. I can't believe the guy who took it couldn't take that child to the UN base so he could get food

    I still have the "mouse in a glue trap" pic if you want something to Photoshop "0WN3D" onto Joe...

    Unfortunately there is plenty more of this happening right now. No need to go back to 1994... there is a great photo essay in last week's Time...

    Big surprise... it is Arab Muslims killing Black Muslims this time. No one in that region of Sudan has planted crops this year, so there'll be more scenes like this one coming out next year.

    Yes dear...Canada. Kids get their car at 16. Hell, most households have 2-3 cars in their driveway. New houses are real nice, for a lot cheaper than here. Older houses are still real nice, and even cheaper. Beautiful nature/scenery. Awsome food. No censorship on TV like here (putting little black bars or blurring nudity) Night Clubs and such? 18 yrs old of age to get in. Gun ownership? Yes. I can go on. And yes, it is a RIGHT to have this stuff.

    Honestly, I can't think of any other country in the world that has such privileges, that are almost, ALMOST, assumed as "rights".

    One reason....my husband!! I'll follow where ever he goes...even Florida!



    When we met, he was living here (he's american), and this is where he works. So as a good wife, I need to be where my Man God is! There is nice things here too, don't get me wrong...but I find people being less friendly and more judgmental. I've met a few real genuine nice people. You smile to someone on the street, at the grocery...rarely do they return the favor. I found most women being very stucked up and prude. Can't make a joke about sex without them starting to tell you God wouldn't appreciate that. They look at you funny if you don't go to church on Sundays, too...lol But USA is also a beautiful country, and I hope to explore it more when we have more time.

    That's a New England thing, not a USA thing. Go down to Florida, or head out west, and you'll find some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet.

    lol....silly! How do you expect "Stephane" to work as an estimator and project manager if he doesn't speak english?? lol He went live in Quebec when he was about 6 yrs old, then came back here when he was about 20. So he got to speak french in Quebec and now you can clearly hear his french accent when he speak english, but he sure can speak the language.

    You know...you go live in a different country, you learn their language. You don't ask people to learn yours. But it takes a long time to learn...and you learn new words/expressions from them the rest fo your life. It's kinda of cool.
