I thought America sucked when I came back from Iraq the first time in 2004. It was like being unplugged from the Matrix. It wasn't a pretty life but it was real and genuine. Yes people were trying to kill me but at least they were doing it to my face and not by selling me shit that is going to kill me slowly. After I left the army I went to England and stayed for a year and married a Polish girl. Stayed for a couple of months in Poland. Loved Europe it was amazing. I didn't want to go back to America because I knew it sucked asshole but my wife was convinced we would be better off. So I had to come back alone and apply for her visa and wait a year. Fast forward eight years of being poor as fuck living on HUD and food stamps while wasting my GI Bill on the community college so I could afford to pay child support so I could keep my drivers license so I could go to school and get paid and then my wife joining the army thinking it would get us out of my little shithole redneck home town and actually being poorer than when we were living on HUD and food stamps and then her deployment and me driving a truck being gone for six months at a time and STILL not making enough money to make ends meet while we shipped our son to Poland to stay with his grandparents while she was deployed and I was driving trying to save some money. My wife left the army and got a job with Amazon in her hometown in Poland and I said fuck this shit we are moving to Poland. She works at Amazon earning slightly more than she earned in the army but here it is worth almost 4x as much and I go to school using the GI Bill online getting paid in dollars so we make it here. No car. No worries about health insurance. The food is fucking great. You can actually buy real meat that isn't some kind of ground up paste molded into the shape of what real meat looks like. We can walk the streets without worry. Our kid can go to school without being murdered. I have my "green" card for another three years and then I renew it again. I speak just enough Polish to ask where the toilet is or to buy the shopping but I would not go back to America ever ever ever. They will have to kill me first. TL;DR Go back to fucking Japan it is a wonderful place. You never should have left.
