  1. As bad as things are getting here, I can't say that it looks all that much better in Belize or Costa Rica, those paradises that old fogies that are tired of paying confiscatory taxes in the US head for in their golden years.

    Sure, in the short term these codgers are living large, paying precious few taxes and lounging on the Caribbean beaches free from worry that Obama will tax them out of their retirements. Long term worries, however, may not loom on the horizon yet, but what will these geezers do when, say, Mexico decides to annex Belize and nationalize the resources of all white people? Are they going to go running to the US embassy, and demand that their property be returned immediately? Wonder how that will work out. Actually, I don't wonder about that at all. During the annexation process, any and all old fogies that stubbornly cling to their possessions will be vaporized, so that bit about the gripes filed with the embassy are simply not going to happen.

    These numbnuts who give up their passports to live abroad are certainly taking their geopolitical chances. Short term things looking good. Longer term, maybe not so much.....

    1. I hear you Fredd, but lemme axe ya this. What do you think of the long term in the USA. It ain't good my friend. Not at all.

      This country is going to be flooded with takers and moslem takers feeding off of anyone working for a living. Beside the fact that having them all here is going to turn the place into a shit hole. It practically is now depending on your locale, but the crap is going to spread fast. They're doing it by agenda in places like Colorado and Texas.

  2. Where could we go that might be a genuine safe haven -- ELBA? How about the GALAPAGOS? The BALEARIC ISLANDS? ANTARCTICA?

    Swiss bank accounts are no longer sacrosanct. Uncle Scheisskopf bullied his way in there thanks largely to pressure brought to bear by the descendants of Jewish Holocaust Survivors to get their confiscated riches away from the Swiss. As a result, the REST of us are being made to suffer. So what else is new?

    Thanks to the curse of modern technology the planet is so small now that "they" can find you no matter WHERE you go.

    "PRISON PLANET" is not really all that strong a term after all. Alex Jones is NOT insane. He is a visionary sees the very same things E. M. FORSTER, ALDOUS HUXLEY, and GEORGE ORWELL saw long ago. Visionaries have always been regarded as insane.

    When the truth is too dreadful to contemplate, you scoff at it, denigrate it, do everything possible to insult, discredit and defame it. LEFTISTS have been doing just that since the inception of their accursed Marxian, Fabian, Communist, Socialist, Progressive Statist movement.

    Sadly, everyone ELSE seems to have taken his cues from the Left, and behaves accordingly. ETHICS SHMETHICS as long as you WIN! -- that all that counts anymore. We have deserted PRINCIPLE in favor of EXPEDIENCY. As a result our suffering will be immense.

  3. FT: you are right. Nowadays, there is no guaranteed safe haven anywhere. Best bet is staying right where you are, in the good ol' USA.

    1. Definitely beats Baffin Island, Fredd. ;--)

      BUT, the Good Ol' USA is not so good anymore. I'm glad I'm 74 and not 25 or 50 or even 60.

      Escape from our Prison Planet must be fairly imminent for me, unless the good Lord chooses to send me back as punishment for my sins. I'm hoping for six more years, because I am CURIOUS to see what the 2016 election and a few years beyond will bring. Either we will turn around and at least try to save ourselves, or we will plunge merrily over the cliff into the Abyss. I don't see how we could continue much linger kicking the proverbial can down the road and remain a viable society.

      Sooner or later the piper must be paid.

    1. Yes, but I don't like to think of all the poor souls who'd like to escape from Obama's Stinking Ship before it sinks to bottom as "rats."

      The RATS are all in congress and in the moronic or deluded majority of the electorate who keep putting these demons, traitors and empty-headed blowhards (think Biden here) in office.

  5. Well, there may be good places to live in the USA for as long as we will all need to based on our ages and for those of us who are not millionaires. If you have money, they are going to find you and rob you. AND it may not be long before you can get better health care somewhere else beside here. It's not turning around and jsut look at what is happening in other countries where we seem to be following the same immigration path. youtube - Germany muslim protests - you see the hordes on welfare talking about cutting German heads off, and millions of Germans marching and telling them to get the out.

  6. America is not the problem. It is the number of idiots living in America, the growing percentage of those who have discovered how easy it is to make a good living in politics, and the growing percentage of idiots who think that the world’s greatest threat today is climate change. It is only a matter of time before idiots completely take over America, which means that eventually the entire country will transform itself into something remarkably similar to Detroit.

  7. I don't know what to say about these people giving up their citizenship...Three years ago I'd have condemned them. I don't today.

    1. Z, If I had a lot of money, I'd be seriously thinking about it. I indirectly know of people with a lot of money who take up residence in say Japan just based on the financial advantages of the current period. Start robbing them and it would be a simple decision for them. And the point is it will be the people with money which means far less government revenue to transfer to the losers which means more pressure on the middle class. It can go stupid bad quickly.

    2. Living in Paris and Munich, I'd obviously often think about staying there.....If things had gone better for Mr. Z in business, we would probably still be there now. If he'd lived, of course. Anyway, I used to feel a tad disloyal for even thinking of staying in Europe, frankly.
      Today? I would NOT feel disloyal. I also had the feeling then that things were so much better in America that I was blessed to have that to go back to. Now, I know things stink in France and Germany, too, but at least they're not AMERICA....it doesn't make me feel SO badly that they stink THERE. I never expected them to STINK here!! It makes me feel like HELL knowing America's in this condition and we have such MORONS who support this decline so vehemently. SO, ya....I'd go there to live. What's the difference!? They have better coffee, too. HA!
      I will always look at our founding fathers with admiration and gratitude...I love the history, I love the intention.
      I do not love this crap now.

    3. Z, I sure can't add anything to that. Exactly how I feel.

  8. Live in the desert or mountains--find out the obits of the satellites, and only come out of the underground bunker after the satellites have passed.
    might be good for a few years.
    who needs money there.
    Under ground springs might be easily purified for water and growing potatoes in an old tire filled with soil under ground will be some food. Just some thoughts--if it gets as bad as the TV Show "DIG" is warning about---Airs on Thursdays on USA channel (Cable). From my research this show is Very Close to the agenda happening now.
    Started last Thursday, not too much is lost if you start watching next Thursday.
    The show started with the birth of a perfect RED HEFFER--
    that is the signal to the Jews to start building the New Temple.
    From my research this show is VERY CLOSE to the agenda happening now

    1. TS/WS, Heck I'll stay in the thick of it. I could turn off the TV if it was my choice alone and live off the Net for the few shows I watch.

  9. Just a thought....
    If the Anti-Christ is to set himself on the Throne of David on the Temple Mount....
    And the Queen of England is setting on that Throne Today...
    Does that mean that England will fall to the Muslims and they take the captured Throne to Jerusalem ?
