Oh great; another post from the pedantic Simon "the grass is always greener" Black.

Well Simon; the grass may be greener on the other side of the fence; but it still needs to be mowed...

yeah...I mean Dubai??  The nation that said fuck off to any nonconnected contract party?  The one with a ton of filthy arabs who won't hesitate to screw the shit out of you, and the one with the supermassive property bubble and zillions of sqft of empty CRE?

If you aspire to making $92k while living in a hell hole, more power to you.

Agreed. Simon "No immigration controls" Black is a dolt. He wants all countries to lift all immigration restrictions immediately, which, by the way, the USA did years ago. Furthermore, this lack of immigration restrictions is the principal cause of the high unemployment rate in the USA. Simon Black apparently cannot see the causal nexus there. Dolt.

Let's hope mass migration out of the US happens soon.

Be careful what you ask for. Have you ever heard the phrase "The good get out"? Well, they are. They have. Look at what you have left.

You got that right Funky Monkey! That's why since leaving High School I saved my money in gold and now I' retired at 50. It's real simple. I don't even own a house! Not yet anyway. For all the sheeple that followed the herd and started up those 401K thingys, I got one word to say..... SUCKAS!!!!!!!!!!!

All of my parents generation (aunts, uncles, etc.) Were screwed by the stock market, pension, 401k world, so I simply will not do that shit.

I'm in gold, silver, lead, and sustainability.

Good luck if you aren't!

Americans don't need to work. We have a consumer economy and our role is to consume Chinese exports. But in order for this system to function we need to boost aggregate demand or else we will spiral into chaos.

LOL monkey, I'd love to say you are wrong, but I went to my son's football practice yesterday and I was appalled.  I have never seen a bigger bunch of lethargic fat bodies.  They were dogging it the whole practice and basically refused to run.  How do you play football if you can't run?  If they take that work ethic into the real world, they are doomed.

Yeah...that's fuckin brilliant Simon. Have Americans go to the middle east seeking jobs because we've been soooooo good to Arabs and Muslims that they'll just be thrilled to death that we go there and seek jobs.

Seriously...just fuckin brilliant. While you're at it, why not suggest a Palestinian run for Mayor of Tel Aviv?

4200 applicants showed up for the juggling gig.  I've been juggling since I was twelve and couldn't even get a callback.  It's that tough out there.  I guess it's off to Abu Dhabi or Doha.  I do what I've been told is a really convincing Gamal Abdul Nasser impression.  "Qowmia al Arabiya!"  Hopefully I can do stand-up in some juice bar.

Alien, you've obviously haven't travel to the middle east.  They like Americans, what they don't like is our government.

Yeah, what the fuck is "grass-is-always-greener" Simon really selling and why does he keep ending up in the main articles on ZH?

Obvioulsy he needs a tax write-off for all his traveling.  Probably that's the real motive for the increasingly crazy posts...

Like there is a rating for articles, there needs to be a rating for the comments section as a whole.  This is hillarious.


I new something was up with Simon when he went postal on someone bringing up fuel riots/protests in Terra del Fuego during his Chile phase.

I worked as a "Discipline Engineer" once. I think it was on 42nd Street in New York, though.

Having been there and listening to the expat chatter, this is a crock of shit. If there are jobs there now, it is because no one wants to be there.

Now that is funny. Unfortunately, the American accent is getting to be almost universally hated. Sad but true.

Here in india, all the expats hide in gated communities, commute in blackened out SUV's and have their own 'circles". Never sees them mix. Teh foreigners out and about are th estudents of Yoga, hippies and of course those damn Israeli de-mobbed tourist drug mules.

Simon gets a negative here. Thumbs down. The ME is anything but a safe haven for Ummerikans.

Leave if you don't need to work or if you can be humble.

Sorry but this is common procedure for US citizens in any country they expatriate to.

US citizens really think that their ways are superior. They dont want them to be tainted by other people's ways.

Quite astonishing when one considers that it is the US ways that has pushed the world headlong to the current disaster but wont prevent US citizens from never mixing with others, never learn the language and the rest...

That is their natural behaviour. They are not hiding. They just preserve themselves from the effects of alien influence (because, yes, everywhere US citizens go, they are at home and the locals are the foreigners)

That is just the way it is.
