Default That's it, I'm moving to the US RANT WARNING

The fatman has had enough of the UK. I liked being a homophobic little island in the middle of the sea, but some fucktard decided it would be a good ------- idea to dig a tunnel under the sea to France, now Mr. Average white brit is a minority. IN MY OWN ------- COUNTRY.

What kicked this off was looking for a TIG welder. I've had enough of flux core and some of the welding on this site makes me wanna cry with envy. I'm familiar with the usual names over there and have been looking at the HF website for some time. What do we get over here? A watered down version at three times the price. Check this out http://www.machinemart.co.uk/ranges.asp?g=105&r=2034

I mean, *GOD DAMN*! http://www.northerntooluk.com/produc...partno=815188E $620 for a basic TIG welder There's not even a range of people to buy from over here. If you can't get it from Northern Tool or Machine Mart, then you're fucked.

And don't get me started on fuel prices. $1.80 a LITRE at the moment round here for 95RON unleaded. I pull $1800 a month in a shitty *** job (soon to be changing for more money), and ---- is so expensive here now that I can barely afford to live, mostly due to sinking $270,000 on buying a house in the middle of a DMZ.

Bah, enough of this ----, I'm gonna drink beer and watch ******* whilst working out my immigration application

Arrrgh, a pint of beer is $6!

America are screwed, lovely place, but seriously. Massive trade deficits. American's don't come back with bullshit, your country is fucked because you blew up too many sand ------s.

The grass is always greener, unless you are too blind to see the other side.

btw, i'd happily move to Canada or Australia, pretty much any of the ex-colonies apart from the one which fought for independence :1

americas fine here 2 a gallon for gas, 2 a pint for beer, and pulling 1800 should be no trouble for you. Also, 270k dollars here is a larger house.

Well you are going to deal with you fair amount of ******** over here too and depending on were you go you could still be the minority.

But you will find a good Welder.

Oz would have me. I have enough points to gain entry due to qualifications and I have a skilled trade (they love mechanics that specialise in diesel engines it seems?).

I've had enough of being the minority in my own country where I'm worked until I drop and I'm politely encouraged to die the ---- off because the government can't afford to support me in my retirement for more than five years.

Everything is so expensive too. 270k bought me a ---- box made of compressed sawdust and porridge. What I want is to move into the middle of the Nevada desert and live underground like Burt Gummer :P

Hmmm, can see I'm going to have to think seriously about this. Only problem is, I manage quite nciely on eBay selling mild steel B series flanges to people for $80 because no one does the HMT thing to the extent people do in the states. The big name car parts store chain we have over here is full of car polish and prop rejects from the Fast and the Furious. There's also quite a trade for SSAC imports over here too. Oh well.

I know a few people that moved to Canada from the UK.They sold there dive of a house or a shoebox as that is how big it was and bought a friggin mansion on the lake for the same here.Having a trade ticket means easy entry to most Western nations as well.Avoid major metro areas in the US or Canada and you will be set with low cost of housing and generally mostly white people who speak english.

Edit- Heavy duty diesel mechanics make normally $30 a hour plus here about $27 US and are in high demand.Stick to western Canada if you come here or Oregon/Washington on the west coast of the US.California is a gong show and you need to speak Spanish.

yea, come to the southeast! it gets kinda hot, but you get used to it, and it's not a bad thing if you like to go to the beach. you don't have to worry about snow, and people are friendlier in the south. the only bad part is that things move at the speed of south, meaning compared to up north, people are generally stupider.
