    China does have a reputation for stealing tech and design's from other places and making cheaper "knock-off" products, They have been doing this for decades now.

    thats for sure in china they have a apple store that sell identical clones with out the apple sign and i hear their just as good u cant even tell the difference u put a apple label on them and is authentic apple ;) thats because american corporate greed have to give up their tech to the Chinese so they can make their products dirt cheap and import it to stupid american consumers that will pay 500% of what the product is really worth:rolleyes:

    Trust me, I am too old to have time to waste on being bitter.
    But I dislike having to watch a world populated by people who are so easily manipulated by a streamlined media, especially when it comes to the truth about the US. The Us is no better nor a lot worse than other countries, they abuse their. Other countries that basically have no power, simply cannot abuse it. But the fairytales in the worldwide media about the US are real nuisance. As Walter Lippman clearly said, Freedom of the press is the freedom of 200 super rich people to publish their opnions.

    PS Of course its Kent State, the Ohio in my brain came from Neil Young....

    You may be a nice enough person in real life, but on MDL, you come across as nothing but an unhappy, bitter person.

    But hey.. you like Neil Young, so there's that.. So maybe you are an ok human being. :)

    ------------
    I worked with a guy who was from Cebu and he always raved about how nice it was and how I would like it there. Sounds like he probably wasn't exaggerating, based on your experience..

    I am in Mindanao. This is still a 3rd world country. The majority of people who come to the Philippines (The ones i met) say "Nice place to visit but i would not like to live here".
    I think the average person will not like it here.

    USA spying on their citizens long before Trump. Republicans and Democrats.
    All countries are doing this in one form or another.

    I think that many people like to stay there, like in Puerto Galera, Boracay, Surigao, Dumaguete, etc., but very hard to make a good salary there :)

    Tourist spots, very expensive. We used to go to Enchanted River. Not allowed to bring your own food. Must buy from them at inflated prices.

    I retired for health reasons and moved here. My health improved. For minor problems there is a free clinic here.

    Agreed, but Surigao and Dumaguete are not really tourist spots, so living should be relatively cheap there. Never visited enchanted river or Britania islands of Mindanao either. Maybe some day :)

    A hypothetical question: if the US finally did everything you think it should, to the point where you wouldn't have any more complaints about it, what then would be the focus of the dissatisfaction in your life? :thinking:
