UAE is actually fantastic country to live in. It is not surprise at all for them to have big immigration numbers.

Probably, since it ranks 6th in the world from the total number of immigrants.
8 million people can't be that wrong, especially these days when the word of mouth is spreading instantly.

The point is that the US is by far the preferred immigration destination, therefore life in the US is not as bad as some might like to think. On the contrary!  ;D

What is very interesting here in Canada (and I am sure its true in other nations as well) is that the pandemic made a lot of people realize they did not need to live in one of the big expensive cities to earn a living if they could work online. Housing sales in rural and less expensive areas have skyrocketed. And with satellite high speed internet becoming more common, it is a serious increase in disposable income for those who can do it.

This topic is about SS. I gave my opinion on healthcare in the USA. A user showed his bewilderment in the US health. I explained my point of view on the subject, something related to education, and that the problem has been in the DNA for years.

I am not going to comment on health in the USA, because I have already discussed for more than 15 years the problems that I am interested in solving, that affect me, in private and in other lines with other means of communication and with others interlocutors.

If you are interested in knowing data about health in the USA or in other parts of the planet, inform yourself in other media, if you want. My time has a value.

The immigration thing, I have not spoken anything about this subject. I love the USA and its people, not all of them. I don't love the uninformed.

A country that keeps its people from believing in the media is a very vulnerable country. A big problem. Among many other problems, which I am not going to discuss in public on the internet. I'm not interested.

Not really. You gave us your uninformed opinion about the American life.
So you are very much interested in discussing in public your stereotype-based opinions and obviously, that was worth your time.  :D

The conclusion is that you don't love yourself because you don't love "the uninformed".  ;D

Sad!  :'(

I have a lot of experience in the problems of the USA and mainly, in everything that affects me on a personal level. However, if you think they are stereotypes. And you think that I am wrong in whole or in part. I accept it.

Once we manage to remove Trump from social networks, we displace hatred from the vision of our minors, our minors do not deserve to live with your problems. You can fight for what you think you should fight for.

Can you love the USA, the question you must ask yourself is, maybe it is better to love the USA less and love it in a better way?

Self-criticism is an important value. By detecting problems, you can fight to solve them. If there are no problems, everything is perfect.

Does anybody know how we can apply for reviewer job on SS, now when americans are gone? Is there a link you can point me to?
https://careers.shutterstock.com/  Whether the assertion that any reviewers in America were got rid of is true is questionable in my view without actual evidence.

Here's the latest from people who would agree with you: US Customs and Border Protection encountered 171,700 migrants in March, including a record number of unaccompanied minors, far exceeding the prior month's totals and continuing an upward trend dating back to last year.

That number is encountered, not the ones they missed.

"In March, CBP encountered 18,800 unaccompanied children at the border, according to the preliminary data, nearly doubling the number apprehensions of children in February and setting a record high."

And now back to bad all over at Shutterstock. Where it now takes three months to make what I did in one month, before the new program that was supposed to reward the active contributors and the rest of the insulting BS from SS HQ that was flung to pacify us into believing their bull crap about the cuts. I believe numbers and results. Income from SS is down 2/3rds.

I do know a couple people who have actually found growth. I'm just pointing out that the majority of us are earning less.

My answer stands, just for those who can't understand. Either take what they offer or leave. The choice is ours alone to decide.

"The federal tax penalty for not being enrolled in health insurance will be eliminated in 2019 because of recent changes made by the Trump Administration"

It's not fair to force someone to pay for unaffordable health insurance if they really cannot pay it. I honesty can't pay the $400 a month anymore (with 5K deductible). Even if I cancel my cable and put my student loans in deferment it STILL would not cover the premium. Sorry for the off topic rant... It is upsetting so I get fired up.

blame the republicans for that one! they  watered down the ACA in pretend negotiations, then none voted for their own amendments - so we had no public option which would have provided affordable insurance for everyone who wanted it.   then spent the next 10 years trying to destroy the ACA.

That's because you are looking at a rate, in reference to the population of those countries. I don't think it's a good way to decide which country is the most favored immigration destination. Countries with smaller populations are artificially inflated in your stats. What matters is the total. Check the graph below. With all due respect, since you agree that voting with your feet is a good expression for the quality of life at the international level, I doubt that life is better in the United Arab Emirates or Saudi Arabia, as it appears when using rates.  ;)

what's the range in years for those #s?   those include generous immigration policy towards WASPish europeans and essential workers, plus many who come to the US for migrant labor that citizens wont do - if they're lucky they make enough to send home & eventually buy some land.

the US exceeds by far the GDP etc of most of those countries and rate is important when the population is so skewed - so per citizen the US does a much worse job than any other industrial democracy

That graph shows all foreign-born US individuals as of 2019.

The foreign-born population includes naturalized citizens, lawful permanent residents, refugees and asylees, other legal residents.

From the global pool of people who decided to leave everything behind and risk a move to a new country,  a disproportionate number chose the US. That includes people from India, China, Philippines, etc. who could have chosen Western Europe, or Australia, or Canada, for example, but they didn't.
About 11% of all US immigrants are from Europe, including 1.8 million from EU and 700k from UK.
Even if you exclude those 10 millions of Mexican immigrants, the US still remains the prefered  emigration destination, worldwide.

So again, life in the US can't be that bad ;)

In fact a lot of Eastern Europeans are now returning to Poland etc. Since the UK left the EU there has been little immigration. Theres a lot of movement between countries within the EU.

Hard to believe that people from the western EU could move to the USA, sounds weird. Maybe from the new eastern countries do, because they move to Germany, UK, France and Spain too. But in a few years (15 or 20) they will not need to move anymore, that is the good thing about the EU and the reason why all these countries want to be in. With all our s.h.it the countries are constantly improving.

Can't imagine why a british or a french could prefer the USA to his own country. It's not possible in my opinion.

(no offense, none of the americans would change their country for another one)

If you are succesful and talented the US has lots to offer. If you are ill or disabled not so much. For the affluent the US has a great lifestyle.

Yup, if I lived in the US I'd be bankrupt and homeless from medical. I need huge travel insurance just to go (when I used to travel). Lovely place with great people and scenery, but no, I prefer Canada. The idea of being a no-fault car accident away from extreme poverty doesn't appeal.

Not that my country doesn't have its issues of course.

And yet, the reality is different than your beliefs.  ;)
The numbers I published above show that you may live in a bubble.

As you noticed, many Eastern Europeans prefer the US to Western Europe, despite having the that border much closer.
And if you do the math based on the above stats, you will conclude that the number of Western Europeans who moved to the US is comparable.

Btw, I work directly with 2 Spanish, 1 French and 2 from Eastern Europe.
Anyway, what matters is not our personal experience or beliefs, but the facts presented by the official statistics.  ;D

....like deranged, knife wielding lunatics running through shopping malls and "missing women" headlines every second day but, yes, I too prefer Canada.

Fortunately, in every corner of the country, there are true patriots, those who love their country, struggling to improve. Kneeling before the anthem, claiming a country where they can live, according to current times, 2021.

Before the Administrator closes this thread and makes it disappear, I would like to tell you, that unfortunately, the civil war is the only possible solution. And then restart the country. This is what many of us think. Unfortunately. The problem has been entrenched in society for decades

Justice and the army have saved democracy this time. But the problem is in society. 70 million, that's a lot of votes, it's a lot of people. The problem must be solved. Some speak of war within five years, others in this decade.


The hostile environment is not bearable, for long. Prewar atmosphere, bellicose. And this time, only the rich are against it. Society is ready to find a solution, to leave a new country to the new generations. The current one is expired.

Do not give importance to my words, here, in this forum, they call me the drunk in the town square.


It is the media that intoxicate my few neurons.
You can already close the thread.

You can also find out. You have the same opportunity as the rest of the humans to access the information. Moreover, it is one of the fundamental rights of the Magna Carta of humanity. Right to information. The information gives you the ability to make decisions for yourself.

World leaders have already confirmed to Biden that it is appreciated that he does what he can, and that they value his efforts. But once confidence is lost, it is very difficult to regain it.


Now that you have left the forum, I wish you to spend some time on the information. And know, that health is in all electoral campaigns. As one of the top three problems for Americans.

Information makes you free.
