Hiya, Batsy — LTNT!
The U.S. has a lot of natural resources. Russia or China will own us once that culture is in charge. I hate to say it but we’d probably be better off if Russia was to take over. Having served in the military during the Cold War I can’t believe I’m thinking this way.
No flames, please. I can’t help the way I think.
That's IT! In short, any decent American/Canadian will qualify. Couple of hundred in attorney's fees, I've no doubt.
And, unlike the famed Panamanian pensionado programme, with this visa, one is still on the citizenship track. Have to speak Spanish well and know Panamanian history. Not onerous at all...well, except that SAJ is a poor linguist, but I'm working on it, working on it.
Does it count if the new immigrant happens to own the panamanian company? In other words, you establish your own business?
I’ll stick it out here. If it hits the fan, I’ll go back to the woods in a county with 20,000 people and away from the priority areas for the feds.
It’s a good place to consider.
If Texas doesn’t seceed, it won’t be Texas much longer.
Could have swore you were quite a cunning linguist!
Dang, I don’t speak a lick of Spanish.
Started doing books for small businesses recently. Have a couple of clients. But not a lot of work, pretty much can do it in my sleep.
New Zealand is notorious for electing libtards to run the govt.
Remember the US Navy ship that was challenged to reveal if it carried nukes before entering the harbor? We refused to confirm or deny and got kicked out and the SEATO treaty was dissolved as a result.
I know because my hubs was on that ship...just sayin’.
I’m Arkansas born and raised but have lived out of state for 30 years. I’m considering Harrison, Arkansas. It’s got a lot of what I’m looking for. And it doesn’t have a lot of what I’m NOT looking for, if you get my meaning.
Very good post, thank you for the profound insight!
But they have lizards in the trees that love to land on unsuspecting passers by. Eeeeeeek!
I received this from a friend a few minutes ago - it seems pretty relevant to this discussion Cheers!
Putins Speech on Feb. 04, 2013
Fat chance, but this is one time our elected leaders should pay attention to the advice of Vladimir Putin....how scary is that?
On February 4th, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia:
“In Russia live Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law. Russia does not need minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of most minorities. When this honourable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the national interest first, observing that the minorities are not Russians.
The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a standing ovation for five minutes.
That’s a leader.
Try Iceland, I hear it’s pretty nice this time of the year......
wow. you stated feelings i have had so deep down that i stay in denial just to keep my sanity.
i kept thinking.something would be the tipping point where america would finally wake up.
every day every hour i read something new.. so horrific. its a steady stream.
weiner is ahead in NY. Hillary sky high favorability. one posts pictures of his penis. the other stands by while 4 men are murdered.
the dems denounce God three times AND THEY are still seen in a favorable light. they gleefully murder babies but fight to save THEPLANET. God please show us what to do!!!!
i am so sad and so fearful for my kids and grand children. i wont surrender but i have lost hope. our nation has never been so evil.
A few Freepers have retired to the Philippines and I plan to do the same in a few years.
Inexpensive. Beautiful beaches and scenery. Beautiful women that do not discriminate against older men. Older people are respected. The people are warm and friendly. English is widely spoken. Etc...
Yes, there is corruption and heartbreaking poverty in many provinces, and Manila Metro is expensive, polluted and a s***hole, but there are 7,107 Islands in the Phils, and the Island of Cebu is one of the best in the world.
Do your research. There are many great places to live in the Phils.
I’m not leaving America. America has left me.
i was called to prep 20 months ago. came out of nowhere. driving force has not lamented but rather the urgency escalates every month. the burden of that respibsibility is very heavy. i am tired but i keep on keeping on.
ps. your words were encouraging. sometimes i wonder why i am doing this. thank you.
Those churches are spectacular.
The Cold War at least gave this nation a sense of purpose....now we are just adrift, standing for nothing, except for policies which will be the downfall of Western Civilization, either from the faggots, or from the Muslims.
Answer: None of those guys ever shut down a major agricultural region for the sake of a fish or a lizard...
Mongolia! Yurts are cool, and it would be a great place to be a cowboy and get in shape!
I tried the Pimsleur German.
Not so great.
I know a little German.....he's sitting over there.
We are so far gone that I can’t imagine a single US “leader” saying even one of those lines in defense of the USA
Eine hefeweizen auf mi rechnung, bitte!
LOL--If you like Russia, why not Mexico? It's closer. And practically light-years ahead of it.
And Mexico has churches. /s
“On February 4th, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma...”
Likely penned by Ted Nugent.
Russians are very cultured educated people just waiting to be set free from the reigns of corruption. They are immune to the PC disease eating away at the West. Heck, Russians also HATE socialism/communism more than anyone. The only people for communism during Soviet times were the party members.
The very word “communism” has been a private joke among Russians since the 60s.
The bottom line is that Russia is going in the right direction while we are on a rocket car going backwards into socialism.
You are entitled to your opinion.
I tried a number of different methods but for me two things worked well:
2.) Listening to music in the target language (and looking up the lyrics)
I discovered Pimsleur years ago and it is the best method I have found to date - besides moving to a country where the language is spoken and getting into an intimate relationship with one of its locals. (The fastest way to learn is on a pillow they say, and I can confirm this too.)
Later, I read the book, "How to Learn Any Language" by Barry Farber and just before the end of the book, he too discovered Pimsleur and thought that it was like magic. He did speak 25 languages.
A few of my friends are linguists and I introduced them to Pimsleur, they too love it.
If you have a better method that you can learn while driving, walking or without reading along with a manual, please let me know, I would love to try it. I've been meaning to brush up on my lousy Russian.
The hardest sound for us to say is the slavic 'Szcz' as seen in the city name, "Szczecin", or at the end of the word "barszcz" (borscht or beet-root soup).
When I first learned, they said to pronounce it like the sound in 'Danish Charter.
Then the other one people have trouble with is km as in "kminek" (fennel). Think of saying c'mere (come here) in English without a space between the c and m.
>> I am tired of arguing with European (Jews, mainly)
Does GFY mean what I think it means? I have no idea what you’re talking about. You and another person on this thread seem to believe I am an Antisemite? The point is that I am a Jew and in Europe I tend to socialize with other Jews, Europeans, unlike myself, but conservatives, like myself, who are staunchly critical of what has become of the “American way of life.” I said I am tired of arguing with them, which is to say, I am tired of defending America all the time.
That’s pretty funny.
“But what to do? Where to go?”
Come back and fight.
” - - - All that’s left for them is the mopping up action against the powerless. - - - “
Gollly Lee! I had no idea that all this was so EASY!
Yup, all yah gotta do is tuck your tail and run whenever a foe of Liberty stands in your way.
BTW m.m., don’t let the door hit yuh where the Good Lord split yuh.
One needs millions to move to Switzerland...or just about anywhere else in the world.
It is very difficult to get into New Zeland. People here are behaving as if one can just pick up and move, like going from New Jersy to Florida.
Other countries don’t want others. Not at all. It is very difficult.
No need for "eeeks" yet.
I do think, however, that this would certainly qualify one for the 16 May residencia visa. You can very likely find good info on this at sites like sovereignsociety.com and so forth.
If you need the name of a good (and honest!) Panamanian lawyer, I can surely provide one. FReepmail me.
Sorry — prev mssg should read “all sorts of benefits”, not “a sorts of benefits”.
Someone get a rope.
The Slavic and other languages have the sound represented by Ж or ż or in English pronounced like the "J" in the French name "Jacques".
The other hard ones to distinguish are Ч, Ц, and Ш (ts, ch, and sh in English...)
But my Russian sucks...
