    OIC. So that means we should not focus on you, seeing as how everything you supposedly have was simply handed to you.

    On the topic, 'Best Place To Be Born' ...

    Of course, this is actually why Switzerland is at the top of the list.'

    But, supposedly you can BUY your citizenship, eh? icon_lol.gif

    Look at Congress. You can't fly like an eagle when you're surrounded by turkeys. This is why a lot of people can't stand the U.S.

    Actually my mother was a Swiss national. My father was American. So, in reality I have little I should complain about in regards to America. I suppose leaving folks like you guys to your own devices is a good thing and in proper order.

    "I suppose leaving folks like you guys to your own devices is a good thing and in proper order."

    You mean people like us who actually worked for a living and earned our retirements penny by penny. People like us who paid our taxes gladly knowing others would benefit besides ourselves.

    Yes, do leave us to our own devices and hide in Switzerland where you can avoid paying taxes and your gun totin' militia will defeat any invader, like China who would never be a match for your manpower and fire power.

    Is it obvious? Rich Americans can and do legally dodge taxes right here in America (see Romney, Mitt) and the IRS still levy taxes on those who renounce citizenship.

    There's something else going on here. Very odd decision coming from an artist with a story as quintessentially American as hers -- her rise from poverty in Nutbush, Tennessee to become a Kennedy Center Honoree is a path that most poor Europeans can only dream of.

    I wish her all the luck and happiness in the world.
    And, I will welcome her home, if she should change her mind.
