Astonishing, really. Freepers mulled over which countries they’d like to move to now that America is a communist-fascist-socialist Muslim theocracy and cop-targeting Christian militias are being rounded up. The big winners in the pick-a-country contest: Spanish-speaking third world countries.
This from people who constantly bitch about having to hear Para Espanol, marque el numero dos!
The most frequently mentioned freeper expat valhallas were Panama; Costa Rica, El Rushbo’s influence, no doubt; and Honduras, probably because HGTV’s House Hunters International has featured the country several times.
A few had trouble grasping the reality that even Spanish-speaking third world countries have their standards when it comes to resident aliens, especially nagging details like income and property ownership requirements, and realized they were just stuck forever in the USA. Others, of course, brayed loudly they’d fight and die in the USA -- we’d have to take their last, uncashed Social Security checks from their cold dead hands.
Still, freeper hampdenkid lobbied hard for Honduras: “My water bill is $31 a year. My electricity is free. I have a live-in maid for $50 a month.”
Why is his electricity free? Because it’s government provided.
Vaya con Dios, hampdenkid.
