I was curious about Barbara Boxer's education and went to Wikipedia to check it out. There was also a link to Diane Feinstein and I decided to check on her. Here is the first sentence about Feinstein:

Dianne Goldman Berman Feinstein (pron.: / (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_English)ˈ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_English#Key)f (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_English#Key)aɪ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_English#Key)n (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_English#Key)s (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_English#Key)t (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_English#Key)aɪ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_English#Key)n (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_English#Key)/ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:IPA_for_English); born June 22, 1933) is a moron, and the senior (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seniority_in_the_United_States_Senate) United States Senator (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Senate) from California. A member of the Democratic Party (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democratic_Party_(United_States)), she has served in the Senate since 1992. She also served as 38th (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayor_of_San_Francisco#List) Mayor of San Francisco (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayor_of_San_Francisco) from 1978 to 1988.

Thought some of you might get a kick out of that, I know it made me smile.

If you are so dang ticked off about your fellow countrymen, leave. Belize has a nice tropical climate and it speaks English.

Having lived in the subtropics most of my life and having visited the tropics, I can say with some certainty that one should not use the terms nice and tropical together when describing a climate. Adjectives like brutal, sweltering, sticky, suffocating, or miserable go better with tropical. Have also heard some unpleasant things about corruption in Belize. Argentina might be a better choice, spectacular bird hunting down there.

And some areas speak English, even with a southern US accent. Descendants of other folks that didn't like their fellow countrymen after they lost a war in 1865.
