Nty, are you on social security yet? Ah!!! I am just teasing. I
you are not that old. Last year, OBAMA didn't not index social
security due to we have deflation.
Nty. these opinions are from Samakhomlao
I think these people are F crazy!!!!! The people in laos want to GTFO
of there for a better life and future. Then u got these dumb nuts
seeing cheap beer and food, then wanting to be permenant resident
Seriously, I know a guy right now in laos who cannot get back in the
USA cause hey overstayed his Passport. He thought he could live cheap
and live good in laos. Well he mess up bad.
For those who are rich like doctors,laywers,U.S scammers works in the
immirgration office, or even retireee. Yes, only when u have money, u
can live like a king in laos with a stable income.
nonymous1 - Some people want to get out, some people want to get in. I
like to think of "don't know what you got, til it's gone." I for one,
would love to move back to Laos and am planning on doing so in 2-3
years, whether or not this decree gets approved. I have my personal
reasons why I want to move back.
Anonymous3 - You made many good points and I totally agree that many
Lao in the US have the misconception about living in Laos like kings.
Every time I visit Laos, I feel I'm more poor than the poor people
living there. Most of my relatives are more wealthy. They all own new
cars, which they paid cash for. I am living paycheck to paycheck and
am still making car payments. So I consider myself poor.
My main reason for wanting to move back to Laos is because of my
desire to retain as much Lao culture as I can. I just started a family
and want to move my family back so that I can raise my kids to be
khone Lao, to understand and retain the Lao culture. I do not want to
raise my kids to be khone Lao-American. Many people including my own
brothers and sisters think I'm crazy and stupid for wanting to move
back to Laos.
Bottom line is, everyone has a dream and sometimes, we won't feel like
we've lived our life to the fullest, until we persue the dream or at
least attempt to pursue that dream. I was born in Laos, raised in the
US. I feel it is time for me to go back to my roots.
I agree with you that there are many true Lao people in Laos who are
very educated and are helping in the rebuilding of the country. I know
a few of the educated people in Laos. If many of the Lao people living
in the US know how many Lao people who have master and doctorate
degrees, they may feel a bit embarrassed because those are the ones
who are truly trying to help rebuild the country.
I don't think I will be able to contribute much to help rebuild our
country, but I would love to be a part of the rebuilding process. Like
I said, it's just a personal desire. :)
Due to my root here in U.S is TOO DEEP, I do not think I can go back
to live in Laos any more. Probably, I will die with the RED NECKS
here fishing and hunting in Alabama.
Nice to talk to you, LHL
