Except for the names and a few minor changes, if you talk about America, that story is the same one.

Perhaps.

And the article, iirc, doesn't touch on the mega-money immigrants that are distorting our real estate market in every major city - especially Vancouver and Toronto. Our government hasn't just sold us out on the low end of cheap labour, but also on the high end of the investment class.

At least if they're going to screw us they're doing it from both ends with vigor! :lol:

Yeah, One of my Friends is One of 'Those
Highly Skilled Well Paid Indian Immigrants

Of Canada' too; Yet Ya See,

She Was Willing to Do What
It Takes; Not Likely Many Folks

Who Come From 'First World Countries'

Will Be Motivated Enough to Do What it FULLY Takes...

Like All the Roofs That Would Never Get Put on in Florida
After A Hurricane, if Not For Mexican Roofer Immigrants at

The Other End of the Pay Scale; Yet Never the Less, The Same

Level of Determination to Do whatever it takes to Eventually Enjoy Freedom...

Some of these Folks Give Up Literally Decades of Their Life to Make it Happen...

Do i have What it takes...

Hell no; No Dam
Ambition to

Make Money At

All; Folks Practically

Had to Hold a Gun to

My Head to Become

Financially Independent,

'Forcing' Promotions on me Using The
Skills i Had As What they Described
As A Valuable Human Commodity;

Never the Less, Financially Independent

By 47; My FRiEnD All 5 Feet 3 at 29; Probably Sooner than Soon..

As She Doesn't Live Her Life in A Mad Rush to Buy to Become Someone either...

When Someone Works For the Sake of Freedom Over Money And Buying 'STUFF';

The Stakes Are Totally

Different...

And Naturally

The Effective
Results As Well...

Not that i Didn't Work
Hard; Just Wanted to Enjoy
School And Work And Do what

i Wanted to Do; And Yes, i Did Except

For the Last 11 Years of Work; Yet About 33 Years of Overall Play Before

Then... And Now 8 Years of Just Total Freedom to Be And Do Whatever the

Heaven and Hell

i Wanna Do Free...

And

i

DO.

Was it Easy
for 17 Years oF It;
No, it was 11 Years

of Purgatory and

66 Months of Hell

And A Few Years

In Between of

Before too;

Yet Hey, Cicada's

Go Into Hibernation Below too...

Meh, Eventually Caterpillars Sprout Wings too...

We aRe Sort of Related Ya know, At Least Metaphorically For SHow...
