IF ONLY THEY WOULD STOP SAYING "EH"!
Everyone feels safer flying to Mexico and Canada.
Which, when you think about it, is a jolly good thing.
It means that our own people will finally see parts of the world which they believed were only fairy tales used to scare little children, AND it means that San Francisco will get far fewer visitors.
The ones that do come will mostly be adventurous Germans and Chinese speaking sincere English. Fewer Midwesterners, fewer Texans, fewer bollocky European bidniz types who hate everything.
"In Balgutia we do not of tip; wait staff are of obsequiously joy-filled only to serve of us and lick of boots!"
Sure, I know our tourist industry depends on visitors. But the rest of us, frankly, can't stand most of them, and don't work in the hospitality field. Other Americans are ignorant and big as houses, most foreigners are too used to sneering at the United States to ever stop now, and business travelers are on the whole a bunch of rancid pustules.
And all of you people smell bad.
In fact, we don't like people who move here either.
You lot drive up prices and eat too much.
Really, you'll love Mexico.
We like Canadians, though. Healthy polite people, who are on the whole better educated and more interesting than any number of Cis-Sierran carpetbaggers and Eurotrash.
