Default To all the Americans

I can leave your country to go home. You can't

Good riddance.

USA is a superpower? Fat Chance. Banana Republic, morelike.

Same old message, spoken in a somewhat more honest way.
As I've said before I have no problem with it when the person acts on it. If he goes back we all benefit.

the trouble with him is that only a few weeks ago he was posting about how fabulous it is here and would basically never want to go back. Then he started coming out with all sorts of odd stuff which makes me think he's either a wind up merchant or needs help.

Something is going on with him. Hey, lanky spoken here, it seems as though you are going through a tough time. I know you are going home, but my fear is that it is not going to help you in the long term. Just make sure you have some support to get you through this difficult time. Good luck.

I think you're right - I can fully understand that many may not be happy living here, but the "screw you" posts seem to be a cry for help.

Account deleted- ack - just noticed that. Hope things turn out okay for him.
