I admitted on here long ago that I was afraid that the US was spiraling downward, and that I was preparing for the possibility of leaving. The problem was Mrs. Maserati.
We have built a good life, and—seemingly unfortunately—invested in our community, and she is not one to easily switch gears and write some things off.
But she told me that last night, she came to the realization that we have to leave. She has finally called the time of death on our US endeavor.
Now it's up to me to put it into action, and I will, starting this weekend or maybe Monday, after a gestation weekend to make sure it wasn’t a flight of fancy. It needs to be done well, but likely sooner rather than later. I am buying plane tickets tonight for europe in a few weeks.
Sh!t just got real real. Now I’m stressed. Time for a long run, alone.
Gosh, didn’t mean to send you packing.
My wife bought a bunch of Aunt Jemima pancake syrup and Land of Lakes butter. Out of nostalgia, and a sense of loss. Brands we have purchased for decades. I suppose there is a limit to nonsense. In fact I heard Trader Joe’s is reversing a previous decision to change some of their ethnic branding. I know my wife and I have unsubscribed to emails, and cancelled business with vendors that cave-in to BLM. I suppose we are far from alone. Pocket books can swing both directions. As these cities foolishly defund police departments there will be a backlash. That said, the future economic turmoil is likely to make American urban areas less desirable, and more of a war zone, regardless who is in power.
Igy, I'm sorry, but this is quite possibly the most boomer thing I've ever read. Let's not cry over spilled syrup
Boomer, or racist?
What is racist about any of that?
