Post Reply Foreigners living better in the US than Americans

And you said not to be coveting of the rich and well off because they worked for it. Does this differ because they're immigrants? Oh wait, they could be criminals like Pablo Escobar or the Yakuza! Yeah yeah....screw you too. Merry fucking Christmas.

I know an immigrant family that owns two homes and a few vehicles.
The dad owns his own landscaping business and works from 4:00 AM to 8:00 PM. The mom has a house cleaning business and does about 70 houses in a month.
They live comfortably due to their hard work and not because they're immigrants.

Now to add some validity to your claim, one could ask specifically about the Syrian refugees. I heard they get housing. Can anyone confirm or disprove this?

well the job put aside but more on the immigrants that don't have work and those who come after using all their money making a death trap (no income and has nothing, and could mostly do nothing + knows nothing like for example the langauge), also creating new darker areas and trafficing.

but yes somethings need more control on and don't say take more and more people in since that could just make a "death zone".

that zone being a place full of people without work, money and with alot of drugs, deals, other connections going around and some recruiting for things?

Really? You want to know why? Because America is a dying country, they are soo far in debt that they have to stop worrying about their own, and start bringing in new ways to at least humor the possibility of decreasing the deficit. Everyone's in debt whether you like to believe it or not, America is just simply hemorrhaging, it's not even funny.

You think that foreigners who bring their own wealth to capitalize on the situation is wrong? Taking advantage of the mess that America has forced themselves into, it's a dog eat dog world my friend.

Although the only thing I'm against is how lenient most have become towards foreigners, such as gaining incentives, or getting a discount; to put it bluntly, but again that stems from an even greater dispute of equality; better get a rain check on that. Oh look now you got me ranting, better stop before I trigger.

Do you mean foreigners like Mexicans crossing the border? Or other foreigners?
Because it goes both ways.

They can, but it's not unusual for foreigners in any country to be well off. It's not like the USA has a law against foreigners being successful. If they do well, they likely earned it. Good for them. My fellow US citizens and I don't deserve everything to be handed to us on a silver platter. If we want to be rich, we can get off our asses and work for it. Personally, I like being nestled in middle class. It's cozy, but not too ostentatious.

I'm pretty sure every single post this guy makes is intended to troll everyone. Also, I'm almost certain immigrants that are not citizens cannot buy property, so I'm not sure what you're worried about other than just plain xenophobia.

No, we aren't Mexico, they are the ones that outlaw non-citizens buying property.

But why?

Luxury cars, designer clothes, not to mention they tend to reside in the "cool" cities like NYC, LA, Chicago,etc. I feel like they get over to these cities easier than a lot of Americans. Anyone notice this? And why? It is not right.


Its like that everywhere. Governments are so scared of upsetting immigrants that they do everything they can to keep them happy.
Here in the UK(and most of Europe) we're going through a refugee crisis from Syria. The government announces huge cut backs to services, but lets in thousands of foreigners to give that money too.

Thats just the logic of those in power.

Wealth Disparity in Europe is likely a lot less than it's in US and many countries like the Nordic countries provide high level education pretty much free of charge all the way to University level along with a fair bit of financial support for students so they can focus on their studies.

Your or your parents Low income is less likely to hold you back in your education and you're free to strive for whatever profession you desire and become successful with good old hard work and luck.
However due to high taxes and such it's not uncommon for successful businesses or rich folk to move to countries that favor capitalism.

I've been to London, Paris , and Berlin. The Europeans didn't seem that xenophobic to me. The French a little bit, think the sub par French the army taught me might have insulted them though.

I think Americans sometimes forget, or are ignorant of the fact, that the EU is intended to provide social and economical equality across European nations. Most Europeans, by now, can afford being in America because America is, well, it's cheap. Traveling to America on vacation has almost become as prevalent as traveling to Spain, Greece and Turkey once were. They should be happy, if anything, that we're aiding their economy "unwittingly", no thanks to our socialistic "Hitler/Stalin regime".

Geoeconomics aside, I think they're just jelly.

It's not hard to start over in a new city if that's what you want to do. You will have every advantage over immigrants as well. Instead of complaining about the success of others you should go out and grab some for yourself.
