Even with Obama, the US is still doing great) 2) Switzerland ( high costs, but lower taxes even things out a bit) 3) New Zealand (No real army is a minus) 4) Australia (Water shortages and high costs are minuses) 5) Singapore (Very small island, Risk of being wiped out by a tsunami, In a dangerous part of the world)New Zealand ?have you read the "paradise lost" thread no I have not. Can you give me a quick summary?bestiality, homosexuality, murder, drunk driving, robbery, kidnapping, wife swapping, child abuse ...That sounds exactly like the UK and the US!No time for that in Israel all work and no play.
