    I pointed out in another recent post that my 'foreign alien' is an intentional tautology - it is a hang-up of mine that they refer to us foreigners as 'aliens' when in my country we call their citizens Filipinos or, sometimes, immigrants (and let them have every advantage we give to our own citizens - sometimes more!).

    Oops, must have missed that one.
    And yes, I know what you mean, aliens to me sounds like "from another planet".

    Not an attempt at anything. I was asked and I merely answered. Nothing more to it.

    To me, it is saying something like (from a government perspective, not by the people) 'We don't really want you here, but will put up with you for the money'.

    you know for all the discussions we have here about cultural differences and most of the time some of the issues we have with the thinking here, i am of the opinion most of us live here because we like it better than where we came from. it is true for me even if you discount the financial advantage most of us have here, which for me i consider to be icing on the cake.

    OK, J was just trying to find out if we culturally advanced expats were starting to take this in a direction we probably don’t need to go( in fact we clearly were).
