Thank you, Kaye Art.

December 10, 2011

I love the response of Kaye Art, someone I don’t personally know but agree with wholeheartedly, over an article that talks about where Americans may consider relocating in order to avoid the coming economic collapse.

The article mentioned that:

…more Americans than ever seem to be interested in relocating overseas.  This appears to be particularly true of younger Americans.

A recent CNBC article contained the following amazing statistics….

*According to the U.S. State Department, 6.3 million Americans are either working or studying overseas.  That is the highest number that has ever been recorded.

*According to one recent survey, “the percentage of Americans aged 25 to 34 actively planning to relocate outside the U.S. has quintupled in just two years, from less than 1 percent to 5.1 percent.”

*That same survey found that 40 percent of all Americans in the 18 to 24 age group are expressing interest in relocation outside of the United States.  Two years ago that figure was only at 15 percent.

It went on talking about other options for Americans and what to prepare for (or what to expect) when migrating to another country, but Kaye understood the real situation about the present discrimination of Americans towards non-Americans.

Her response is real winner in my heart (emphasis mine throughout):

Kaye Art:

I am one who doesn’t believe in countries and borders. But I find it amusing that Americans who have invested so much in keeping people from troubled countries out of America are now looking at some of those countries to relocate, as if planet earth was set up solely for them. The reason they have such difficulty in other countries is because they are unaware that there are other people and cultures on earth who have just as much right to the freedom of this planet as them.

Well said… Now the next part of her comment was absolutely witty!

…As a relocation country I could recomend Zambia. It is a beautiful peaceful country in central Africa with a simple improving economy and very friendly people it has no oil so is unlikely to be bombed by Nato and America. But before you come it might be good to check out what a Zambian has to go through just to visit America let alone live there. I am not anti America in any way I am for all people but it is time for us to wake up!

Kaye, all I can say is that I experienced the arrogance and corruption of the American Embassy in the Philippines where it’s been really difficult (and expensive) to apply for a Visa… it really feels like they’re just milking off Filipinos of their money for their applications and re-applications.  Their consuls‘ methods of interrogation were sloppy, rude and even unfair to legitimate applicants. So, Kaye, believe me, many people (or at least many Filipinos from what I witness) are awake and are aware of this reality.
