I could probably land a good physics teaching job in NZ, but I'm not pursuing it, it is just too far away from my siblings. Costa Rica is pretty tempting though, if a job comes up at the school near Tamarindo, where I went to a surf camp, I might have to take that one.

Sandi/Roy, this is exactly the attitude that makes me shake my head.

We are all Americans, One Nation Under God, Indivisible, With Liberty and Justice for All. Yet you want other Americans to leave.

The diversity of our country is what makes us great. I would never wish for Conservatives to leave the country.

Actually, I think they did leave the country. About 30-35 years ago.

Actually I was wondering if Roy might be giving good advice for once. We're thinking more like Canada than Europe but we're thinking about it. Sure, the country will recover but not in my lifetime.

Leaving Wisconsin for some better-governed state might be enough.

I could join my German cousins, but I'd rather stand and fight. I like Crosby,Still,Nash & Young's "Stand Up and Be Counted"

I still like the song but I don't feel quite the same motivation to stand and be counted as I did forty years ago. It's more like "hold fast" now.

Diversity yes, socialism no. Socialism has never made any country great. How well did it work out in Venezuela?

It worked great for many years in Milwaukee. I was born there when Socialist Frank Zeidler was mayor.

American Socialism is much different than the Venezuelan kind.

A monarchy by any other name is still a monarchy.

And a non sequitur by any other name is still a non sequitur.

It worked well in Burlington, too, when Bernie was mayor — but most everybody knows that by now.
