Still depressed here!
Yep. Currently packing for either a desert island or Canada.
I checked out Canada. They don’t want old people!
How rude! And very disappointing.
Unless you have a lot of money and serious marketable skills, Australia’s out of question, too
Well there goes my second choice. 😟
Why? What the hell have we done? We look after old people here, well they look after me that’s for sure and I’m considered ancient!
She said it required money and marketable skills. At this point I have neither.
Great place! You are so lucky to be there. Immigration rules are pretty strict in many places as they want to make sure those coming in will contribute in a positive way, pay into the systems to continue the programs in place, and not be a drag on society. Logical and smart. (You are probably close in age to me) Although we have considered getting another sailboat and just anchoring offshore.
I assume you’ll anchor outside the 12-mile limit …
For 5 minutes every so often – otherwise just “visiting” the local anchoring spots like all the rest of the vagabond boats HA HA
Just speaking up for Canadians, since I am one. Check again—lots of happy old people here!
Immigration has an age restriction.
Seriously? I’ve heard of lots of immigration restrictions, but never age. I guess they don’t want us old folks moving in to sponge off their government services?
They want educated and younger workers. As a lark, I took the “test” for immigrant status on the Canada government website and although I am highly educated, couldn’t accumulate enough points, mostly owing to my age. This was 12 years ago BTW.
That’s very disappointing. What if some family, including grandma, wants to move there?
Screw grandma? In the U. S. If one person gains admittance, it’s easier to add grandma later as a family member.
It’s not the old people the Canadians are currently upset with, it’s Alex Trebek! It all started last week when he barred his fellow countrymen and women from being contestants on “Jeopardy”. Let’s just hope Donald and Alex aren’t BFF’s because Alex may convince Donald to build yet another wall! 🙁
I read what your comment to my husband and he’s still laughing. I think stopping The Donald is hopeless when so many of my fellow Americans are voting for him. The real victim is Democracy.
With Hillary facing an FBI criminal investigation, I fear she can’t stop him either. Don’t worry about wall between Canada and the U. S., the way things are going the border will become one long parking strip. The only upside is Trebek and The Donald provide much fodder for the political cartoonists.
There’s been far too much cartoon fodder already. And the campaign as a whole has turned into one giant sitcom. I despair …
Boy, am I out of the loop. Had to go read about Trabek and Jeopardy. (I routinely avoid TV game shows.)
It could be worse…think Ted Cruz…
Ugh, do I have to? He makes my skin crawl.
You keep saying with bewilderment -” This is the best they can come up with?”
… while banging my head against the wall and wondering what we did to deserve this.
Any possibilities of alternative realities and dimensions?
Hmm, as I recall Star Trek did delve into parallel dimensions …
More like an UNreality show if you ask me. 😳
Or horror show. 😱
Nonono, don’t worry, really! It’s all actually an epic practical joke. It will all be fine and at the grand reveal they will laugh at how gullible we’ve been. ^_^
Can I quote you on that?
Sure, I’d be flattered! ^_^
Some people I used to respect are voting for Trump.
Nobody I know is tipping their hand yet. But no one seems happy with the options.
