Re: Why Americans are Flocking to Asia

Now it has become a very useful discussion. So a couple of points . When I was deciding whether to retire in Thailand , one of the many considerations was Health Care but certainly just one of many. What I found was decent medical insurance was available but it became harder and harder to continue o...

Re: Why Americans are Flocking to Asia

You need to read my post a little closer. I could not have been planer that my comments were not about Health Care System in general but about Medicare . Completely different things. Next this is what was posted . Americans who would have to be collecting food stamps just to eat after being robbed e...

Re: Why Americans are Flocking to Asia

The normal refrain from someone who has exposed his ignorance not only on Medicare but on taxes he has to pay even living in Thailand and of course News Organizations that are owned by the Government. Take a look at how many people retire every day in the USA and then check anywhere you care and you...

Re: Why Americans are Flocking to Asia

So much to reply to. The Middle East has been a disaster for centuries but especially since the Jews moved back to their homeland . Despots are despots and it makes no matter to me if some good comes out of their tyrannical reigns. They manage to convince their citizens that chaos would happen witho...

Re: Why Americans are Flocking to Asia

First of all in the USA, young people historically don't vote thus they don't get elected and thus their views are not in the forefront of discussions. 2nd electing young people to important positions who may not understand the world is a dangerous place and many autocratic countries have no intenti...

Re: Why Americans are Flocking to Asia

I prefer Al Jazeera over CNN, Fox, CNBC, etc. for the mere fact that it's the only news outlet I can find that actually provides unbiased facts versus that biased over-dramatic made-for-Hollywood bullshit that the other news outlets provide. BBC is my second choice. You have to be joking !! Al Jaze...

Re: Why Americans are Flocking to Asia

I think it has much more to do with cheap flights, cheap hotels, cheap meals, cheap medical care (if needed), and of course cheap sex. I don't agree with much of that. First of all at least 40% of Americans have never held a passport. And the only reason it is that low is because things changed and...

Re: Why Americans are Flocking to Asia

I think it is interesting how easy it is to blame the leaders in a Democracy rather than the voters. Certainly in the the USA, I blame the voters who are too lazy to get off their asses and vote . Certainly we could make it easier for them to vote but bottom line you get what you deserve most of the...

For pastrami you're probably right that I would be SOL. I don't have a smoker and I'm not planning to buy one.

You could always try this!
