The cities I was considering were NYC, San Francisco, and Seattle, and I have been priced out of all three of them.

Nobody ever bothers me and I do pretty much what I want.

because the antiabortionists also want to overturn griswold vs. connecticutt 1965, the underpinning of the legality of birth control in the usa. that is how i know they are going after recreational sex.

Just for your own safety, Americans, do not come and live in England. It is quickly descending into a land of barbarians. Anyway, you'd probably be shipped off to Rwanda if you were seen as unwelcome.

However, Scotland hopes to become independent soon, so that could be an option. Scotland is a much better country.

Also, fornication should be mandatory. Evangelicals need to see what it's like when *their* bodily autonomy is taken away.

i would make all the sanctimonious types grow their hair out and take recreational drugs and listen to urban contemporary music, as well as prance about nude and sow their wild oats on saturday nights, just to see them pray for crop failure on sunday morning.

How else can we get the following in Texas between now and 2026 (at the earliest) without doing anything drastic?

1. Legal marijuana

2. Legal abortion (meaning unrestricted, on-demand, without apology, and fully taxpayer-funded)

3. Public nudity legalized (this includes repealing the dick pic ban Abbott signed into law in '19)

4. LGBT+ getting full rights

5. Hate speech criminalized

6. Universal health care

7. 100% renewable energy

8. Gun control--preferably a total ban on guns

9. A working power grid.

10. Death penalty abolished.

Dude.. just face it: You're plotting your move to Canada. :D

Work permits get signed every day for foreigners to work jobs Canadians won’t do. That’s the easiest way to get one’s foot in the door.

Manual labour, farm labour, fast food/hospitality etc.

If someone’s goal is to move to Canada above all else they’ll find a way, even if it means digging ditches or hanging drywall etc.

As long as people are physically capable there’s work. Thing is that I think Most of the time employers that advertise jobs here and can’t fill them, and then get foreign worker permits etc, they already have a friend or family member in mind that they want to bring here vs fielding foreign applications. But some may accept foreign applications - especially for highly specialized tech or engineering jobs that require very specific knowledge and educations.

But there are ways for the determined to eventually make their way here even if it takes years.

The point is: Abbott wants Texas to be a far-right theocracy. Same with nearly every other GOP governor.

They all have very high costs of living.


The Spokane area here in Washington state is, if anything, purple with people of usually a mild political temperament, and the cost of living beats Seattle.
