Sorry for moving this thread off topic, but here goes: [/rant on] My wife has a friend from Germany, though we don't see her that much anymore. She has lived and worked here for 20+ years in the local school system. One of the main reasons we don't see her that much is she always says how much better the USA would be if they would do more things like they do in Germany. When I press her on the issue and ask why she doesn't move back to Germany, her answer is there is no work there. To top it all off, the area where her mother works is mostly dependent upon the US military base for employment. Her mother works on the US base as a janitor in the kitchen, I think. If it were not for the USA, their lives would certainly be different, likely much different.
