Speaking as one who got tired of being insulted by him as he slid down into some bizarre pit of misery, I hope het gets his act together.

I really do not understand why people stay in the US if they are so against the lifestyle.
Maybe he should concider moving home and be done with it at least he won't get ridiculed for not tipping

Get used to it or move on Edited

the turnaround is attributable to something that we are not privy to, which is fine, not our beeswax so to speak. It only becomes MY business, when he went off half cocked, slamming my country in EVERY single post. If he got on Elvira's mammary glands you know he crossed a line.

I am a firm believer in live by the rules of the country that you life in, if you cannot conform then bugger of back to where you come from...
"Conform or leave". F**k me, I think I preferred Lanky!

That is quite the most depressing statement I've seen from a BE member in a long, long time.

I thought Tipping was a city in China.........



"Conform or Leave." Better suited as a bumper sticker for something like the immigration policy!!
I actually prefer "just play the cards that you are dealt with"
