couldn't stand the poor folk anymore, eh? stinking bastards mug you too. not that you wanna see them executed for it, of course -- better to move where they can't (afford to) join you. there's one kind of heterogeneity a person can do without! but hey, who could blame you? it feels exactly right.//
you've helped destroy the american left and i suspect you don't even begin to understand how. may Canada survive the influx of your like.
Couldn't stand living in a country that didn't care about the poor folk anymore. That should be obvious.Personally, I can't imagine emailing a stranger to voice disapproval of her life choices.
We each make our own decisions and live our lives as best as we can. I was tired of feeling so alienated, tired of fighting every moment of my life. Most people have been gracious enough to wish me luck. Instead you choose to spit. But I can't live your life and you can't live mine. You don't need my approval to stay and I didn't ask for yours to go.
As far as ruining "the American left", I doubt you live your entire life for it either. You probably do what's best for you 99% of the time. As we all do. If I didn't need a microscope to find "the American left" I might have felt more comfortable in the US.
As far as Canada "surviving" me - !!! What can I say? Do you think they'll survive an engaged, taxpaying, caring, community-oriented citizen? Gee, sounds scary.
I hope you're not so nasty and judgmental to the people you know and love. They may also make decisions that don't meet your specifications.
Well, I hope you're all surviving "the influx" of my "like". Glad you're nicer than that guy.
