Time to Get Back to Posting

Since I have moved back to the US and sort of settled in to our new home, I guess it is time to start posting on a regular basis again. I must say that moving out of the country is as bad as moving back into the country. The problems I had moving to Malaysia were from the US government and institutions and the problems I had moving back to the US were caused by the government and US institutions. In the next few posts I will try to elaborate a bit on my experiences moving back home.

Before I left Malaysia, I sold most of our belongings and had more personal items shipped back to the US. There was no problem in doing this. I closed my bank accounts and transferred the money successfully. I sold my condo and transferred that money back successfully. The only problem I had a and am still having is getting approximately $1000 transferred from an incompetent shyster lawyer I used to sell my home in Malaysia. For 4 months now he has been coming up with one lame excuse after another as to why he hasn't done it yet, I'm still waiting.

Two days before we were to fly out of Malaysia I came down with flu and thought I was going to die, ever moment of the 36 hour flight! The cough and fever lasted for about 3 weeks and I couldn't go to the doctor because I didn't have health insurance. Welcome home to the land of phenomenally expensive healthcare!

At the airport I went through immigration and was asked how long I was going to stay. How long was I staying? I am an American citizen! I thought I had the right to live here or come back to visit for as long as I wanted! Feeling like crap I really wanted to tell the immigration officer where to get off, but I didn't. I got out of the airport and was welcomed back to American soil by a snow storm. Still suffering with a fever it felt much better than the heat and humidity of Malaysia.

Stay tuned for more experiences of my return home.

Happy Memorial Day

To all of my friends and family and all Americans everywhere I would like to wish you all a very Happy Memorial Day. Please remember all of those who have done so much to give us the good life we have. We are forever indebted to our veterans.

A New Year and A Lot of Changes

    It's been a very long time since I have posted here, but now I think I am ready to resume posting on a more regular basis.  The main reason for my long absence here is the fact that I have moved back to the US from my retirement in Malaysia. Another reason is that I am considering changing the content of this blog. For some time  had concentrated on politics, in particular progressive or liberal views. I have become disgusted with the  lies, the hatred and utter ridiculousness of politics, from  both the Right and the Left. I am also disgusted with religious nuts in this country, which are no different from Islamic religious nuts in Pakistan or other countries of the world.

    I will be sharing my experiences of moving back to this country, in subsequent posts, as some of them have been both frustrating and asinine. I will also occasionally comment on politics, whenever I really get pissed off by the actions of ignorant and useless politicians. I will begin to comment on my new life back here in Rochester,NY USA. Stay tuned.
