  •  Send them back to serve American expats (0+ / 0-)

    This diary currently on the rec list (http://www.dailykos.com/...) is saying that American seniors should all retire overseas, including Central American countries, so that their hard earned retirement dollars go further.  They go further because they'll be paying third world, not American wages.

    So if there's going to be a flood of American seniors to Central America, then we should send all these children back home.  Those seniors are going to need their low wage servants - maids, gardeners, waiters, etc.

    Since they don't want to pay more than the absolute minimum, these children are the perfect fit.  Send them back home, that's where the jobs will be once the expats all move in.

    •  Serious mischaracterization! (4+ / 0-)

      That diary in no way says everyone should retire overseas. The diarist reports that some of the people he knows are, but that he chooses to remain here and make this country better.

      “Texas is a so-called red state, but you’ve got 10 million Democrats here in Texas. And …, there are a whole lot of people here in Texas who need us, and who need us to fight for them.” President Obama
