  •  Do most Americans realize this.... (0+ / 0-)

    I think they do, that's why more are traveling via cruises, where they don't have to rely on people in other countries for their food, shelter, etc.

    •  or they can't afford (0+ / 0-)

      the exchange rate

        but it makes sense.

        I'm sure you are able to get along with only dollars while on board.

          but I live in Europe on my VA compensation, so the exchange rate thing really affects me, so it is on the top of my mind with these issues.

          •  I've lost my travel attraction.... (0+ / 0-)

            Are you going to live in Europe permanently?
            What's the translation of your sub-title?

            •  haven't decided if I will stay (0+ / 0-)

              but the translation is:

              Do not rejoice in his defeat, you men; for though the bastard is dead, the bitch that bore him is still in heat.

              Can be applied to lot's in this administration, even Nixon's; or even Gonzales and Mukasky.

              They just keep coming back in one form or another, birthed by the system of corruption.

              •  Thank you -- very interesting... (0+ / 0-)

                I'm more concerned with the mindset or lack thereof on the part of the American people. The whole immigration issue leads me to believe that most people don't have a clue as to what has been going on over the last 20 years, nor care. Now because their own failure to be productive has caused them to lose buying power, they need someone to serve them up a scapegoat.

                IMO people get the government they deserve.
