I’ve always lived in Alberta. Virtually everyone I know has moved in the course of their careers to chase job opportunities and promotions but I never did. I figured my roots are here; I changed jobs, became a wage slave for decades but eventually paid off the mortgage and all my debt and we managed to save a little money too. It’s weird - my friends that moved for job opportunities made a lot more money… but they bought bigger better homes, cars, etc… and many are still in debt. They’re nuts, some of them, to retire with mortgages…but who knows, maybe they know something I don’t?
But all is not well. Our fwench faggot of a Prime Minister is inflating the value of our savings away. Generations of socialist and neoliberal carpetbaggers have looted the country to the extent that our kids can’t afford homes or families anymore. Socialism only ever ends one way, and has washed away any sense of patriotism I have left. The leaders we have that aren’t grifters - are dingbats. Canada is racing toward financial collapse and/or worse… and I don’t want to burn with all the morons here running around with gasoline and matches. My attitude now is -fuck these people, unless we are going to civil war with them, I want nothing to do with them. This isn’t my home anymore.
I’ve heard a lot of people talking about retirement in Southeast Asia…and I wonder about that. Have any of you thought about retiring elsewhere? If so, have you got anything to share?
Unfortunately, as bad as things are getting to be here, we still have more rights than those in other countries do. For me, I don't see any good alternative place to move to.ReplyDelete
I have considered it, man i served with are going to be expats in Thailand, Philippines and Mexico. All are too far away but Mexico, i have friends with mexican citizenship, but my kids and grand kids are here, plus fuck em, i aint leaving, gonna die here one way or another, thats not a i love the US statement she is corrupt and past fixing, i wont be told or forced to do anything i dont want to, and i dont want to so, I guess i stay. Now if only my Dad got that Swiss citizenship back in the 60's when he had the chance, yeah Id pack he family up and move there. Im probably selling the house and cars, keeping the jeep and buying an RV and going to live like a vagabond in my retirement. Its an option. Best of luck.ReplyDelete
I spent 6 months in Grenada after the intervention there in 1983. Man, would I love to retire there. Barbados would be nice too, and fewer hurricanes. Belize is English speaking. Realistically, no matter where you go, you are an outsider. Remember Matt Bracken's advice in his description of the CW2 cube: " If you live amidst your civil war enemies, as defined and located within the CW2 Cube, you will be in mortal danger even if your immediate neighbors know, love and respect you." https://westernrifleshooters.blogspot.com/2010/07/bracken-cw2-cube-mapping-meta-terrain.htmlReplyDelete

In the last several years, Mexico has come to me. So I guess, I'm living there already.... The matriarchy at home and machismo in the street is a weird dynamic to see.ReplyDelete
I've studied too much parasitology to have any interest in tropical or sub-tropical climes. Yeah, our winters nip at yer ass, but it does keep the bugs down and the riffraff out. We have mosquitos too, but they don't carry malaria or worse.ReplyDelete
I'm deep in the midst of flyover country, and easily off the radar of the madness of our country's death throes. I once had a coworker ask me why I wanted to move where I am now, and the first thought to my mind was "Because you don't!"
Because my wife is from there, we'll likely be pulling up stakes and heading there with the kids, once Trudeau's goddamn mandates ever lift. I'm utterly convinced that as long as that sadistic son of a bitch is in charge here, every single person in this country is in extreme danger. The last two years alone were stark proof of that, despite that there is much more.ReplyDelete
Besides, after almost 20 years in law enforcement and 6 in the military, I've done my service for this country. In return, I was treated as an enemy because I refused to submit to an illegal and immoral medical procedure. I've done what I can.
No....there is nothing left for me here. Canada can burn for all I care.
*EDIT* heading to Korea.Delete
Seeing how Canaderp has made it virtually impossible to drive through and I can’t drive out of the state without going into Canaderp, I’m stayin’ put in the Frozen Freakin’ North. Bought my 40 acre retirement compound a few years back; gonna sell the current house & most of the useless crap I’ve accumulated and move there. Got the moat & battlements built, the castle keep is in work. Just need to find arctic grade gators for the moat….ReplyDelete
Not leaving, just planning my Samuel Whittmore movements.ReplyDelete

I have done much research
