And how many times have you traveled, recently?
I have not traveled internationally, since the election, but those who have are telling me they have not noticed any difference.

I work in aviation, so I'm dealing with international travelers every day. The vast majority say that it is much like it was under Bush...but with a bit of laughter.

Please define "productive".

Re: Healthcare is not a right

So, Aquila, why haven't you moved to Europe or Canada yet?

It was under President Bush. When I talk to travelers, they mention that it is a little like it was under President Bush. However, there's a tinge of laughter when it comes to Trump. lol

I've thought about Canada. But my ex and I have joint custody of our son. I'd either have him throughout the Summer or she would. I'm not comfortable with long stints of time without seeing my boy.

So, if you haven't been overseas in a decade, how can you "almost feel the tension in the air?"

This past month I've had several friends and family members go to Europe and Ireland. One has been in Europe for almost three months and none have felt any "tension" in the air or experienced any negative interactions with the locals.

Re: Healthcare is not a right

Most of my "across the pond" interactions are with businesspeople from France, Spain and Hungary.
They are very optimistic that business will improve for them with the Trump admin.
All of them had a very negative attitude toward the BHO admin.

Look, you're obviously not understanding that I'm just relaying what I've heard from a number of folks.

So, you don't think the Irish had a great laugh at Trump's "Irish Proverb" which he tried to share with the Irish Prime Minister??? What is so funny is that the proverb isn't Irish. It was written by a Nigerian poet... who happens to be MUSLIM! ROFL!!!!

Germany has been a buzz about how shameful it was that Trump didn't even Shake Merkel's hand when they greeted one another. They also were rather put off by how Trump implied that they are asking America to contribute too much to NATO and how America isn't getting a good deal out of it. Their points were rather strong. First, the United States sets the amount we wish to contribute based on our interests. Second, it's not a business transaction, it is a treaty agreement to protect mutual interests from outside threats.

Never mind... I don't think you understand what I'm trying to say. And it's probably my fault somehow.

Hey, look.... Let's just pretend that everyone throughout Europe and the rest of the world just LOVES Trump.
