Beat the rush---when the meltdown comes, there will be millions of American wetabcks trying to get south across the border.

Well in all fairness, that was the day the little light came on saying the time had come to put gas in the gas tank or start walking.

I lived in NYC for a few years. I loved it during great economic times. I always had this feeling that if the economy took a downturn, I certainly would NOT want to live there!

The sad part about most rural areas is you are so reliant on the AUTO, making it not be so great anymore.

I think abroad would be better.
