Don't Even Think About Leaving the Country

While the middle of the country floods and the West burns, some of us may be entertaining crazy ideas of leaving the country.
However, don't do it. Don't even think about it. Let's all make like NOE and just stay put here in the good old US of A.

Washington's commitment to a weak dollar hit another high note Tuesday with both the euro and pound hitting new highs against our battered greenback. This means that traveling like Rick Steves in the safety of Western Europe is now totally unaffordable for many of us. Hell, even a burrito (a bargain for the Brits) at BigDra's place in Cambridge will seem like a fortune.

And don't even think of going to the cheaper parts of the world. I hear there are terrorists and Mexicans there.

"And don't even think of going to the cheaper parts of the world. I hear there are terrorists and Mexicans there."

This, readers, is what is called a straw man argument, in this case made by a man who is seeking ways to rationalize his fear of staying in one place for longer than three months.

41 rupees to a dollar, NOE. Something to think about.
