Re: How is it? Life in United States?
It sucks

but living any where in the middle east would be worse


I can honestly say; life is not as good as it was 20 years ago

for numerous reasons. But one:

(I worry if I was to get really sick ; for instance with a form of cancer ; it would send my husband and I into bankruptcy. I will never go to a doc here unless I was in a MVA or some trauma and someone called the ambulance without my permission.

I personally know of someone who was diagnosed with lymphoma last year. The total cost to save their life was a million dollars and some change.
I wife didn't have good insurance; they would be looking at loosing everything.)

This is life in the US

welcome to hell

Someone i know was diagnosed with this several weeks ago, don't sound good at all.. he has advanced stages in his late 30's.. they started all the 'treatments' right away,

Anyhow they told us the cost of one shot he needed was 9 thousand dollars.. How is that even possible?
OP, you'll be living the good life compared to what we're headed for. He has good insurance. Guess that's why he getting shots that cost 9gs.

$750 for 1 bedroom rent in average neighborhood
$130 for electricity
$49.99 for internet
49.99 for tv
Average grocery will $150 lasts about a week or two
Cigs vary in price around $5 per pack
Alcohol (cheap beers for $5)
Soda Pop Coke Pepsi (1.25 for small personal bottle)


Living in the US is probably like anywhere else. Its boring, everyone keeps to themselves, people live very close together but dont know each other, most people sit at home and watch tv... Some people go on vacation for a week or two but thats about the extent of our fun.

We are possibly the most shallow, lonely people on the entire planet. Rich in materialism but 3rd world country poor in life & spirituality (not to be confused with religion).

Most people are literally walking zombies... On a day where the US government and military authorize killings of innocents with drones, most will go out for an ice cream and bitch about someone being "rude" to them.

Its the best place on earth as long as you never awake and start asking your own questions.

I want out but realistically there is no where to go thats better. We are the last country, when we fall, say hello to thousands of years of manipulation and control...

I live in a tourist town out on the frontier in a Red State. It's not bad out here. I'm in a metro area, actually, but the woods starts up a mile from my house and goes on forever. I can walk to the lake. As for people, you hit the nail on the head. I don't interact a lot, but I do take breaks from the 'puter to visit the library or local bar, even if there is no social interaction, being around people keeps it real. I have a slacker job that pays the bills and keeps me in beer and a few minor luxuries. I am a minimalist with a waste-not, want-not attitude.

I avoid the consumer life and the consumer. I don't have children, neither does the girlfriend. That excludes us from the upwardly-mobile, social climbing crowd. I find myself more and more distancing myself from the System (mass media and Big Government) in recent years. I don't feel I'm a part of this culture nor do I want to be.

In terms of cost, related to the above post:

$550 for 1 bedroom rent in a downtown walking neighborhood
$70 for electricity
$39.99 for internet
no tv (shut that shit OFF!!)
Average grocery will $50 lasts about a week or two. I buy whole foods and no food is wasted
I don't smoke. The girlfriend pays $6 a pack in Washington, they are cheaper in Idaho
Alcohol (good microbrews for $5)
No soda (whole food diet)

I'm a slacker system dropout who just wants to be left alone and so far that is working out.

CANADIANS MUST NEVER FORGET THE BETRAYAL OF BILLS C-68 & C-17. WE MUST NOT REST UNTIL THEY ARE FULLY REPEALED.

C-19 WAS A GOOD START......BUT JUST A START. GET OFF YOUR COLLECTIVE ASSES AND MAKE AN IMPACT. WE HAVE 26 MONTHS.

I, THEE BOB, SWEAR ON THE ALTER OF GOD TO FIGHT ALL FORMS OF CANADIAN TYRANNY AND SAVE MY COUNTRY FROM THE EVILS OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER. I WILL NEVER HAND IN MY GUNS. EVER. I AM A FREE MAN, I WILL NOT BE THE BITCH OF THE SOCIALIST ESTABLISHMENT. LEAVE ME ALONE.

Not obsessed with money, I could easily make $100k a year or more but I am happy with under $1.5k a month.

Re: How is it? Life in United States?
i believe it is the global economy that hit the usa.

first it was the oil countries that co-opted and the price of gas went up and million upon millions of dollars went to the oil countries.

then came the third world countries waking up.

China and India woke up

all contributed to the global economy in competition.

world transportation, world communication.

outsourcing of jobs

everything together was putting the pressure on the usa

meanwhile at home, the capitalist system was being squeezed by greedy people with their schemes comtributing to the downfall of stock companies (worldcom and enron) and some pension funds, then came another greedy scheme that took down the housing market (sub prime) and with it the stock market.

the usa is slowly recovering but will take time

meanwhile China is growing and is poised to become the world power, which will probably produce a confrontation with the usa for world domination.

that may be the time for younger people to consider leaving this country to save their skins

and i didn't even mention the drugs and crime and extremist groups with guns and hate

yes it is a big wonderful world and it would be nice if people could move to where they wanted if only they had the means

I was doing good and then the jew told me I could not print my own currency. I was doing fine but then the jew told me my speech was hateful. My son was doing well but they shot him on the Liberty. I felt safe and then I learned about project Pinto and project Lukam where the jews stole and sold our nuclear and military secrets.
