Nothing that a Hellfire missile from a Predator drone can't fix.

I am sure they will have the same breathtaking success there that they have in all the other countries of the world where they can be found.

Isn't having to live in Wales enough of a punishment?

We recently had one person pass through here.  He was a near deaf Somali speaking Ethiopian somehow homeless in the American mid-west.  We called several local agencies that work with the homeless and an embassy. No one wanted to do anything. Poor guy probably froze.

Had someone in Buffalo, NY with a similar problem.  When they found someone to translate, he didn't want much but to go home.  Wouldn't take much help and lived beneath a stairs.  Eventually he was arrested for trespass well before winter set in.

I occasionally run into African homeless.  We have tons of refugees and at least 3 agencies specializing for that community.  I think it started in the cold war getting people out of the soviet bloc.  At least, that was the Catholic involvement.

Remember in Calvin & Hobbes the family would have horrible camping experiences that made home look so much nicer.

Something like that. Summer camp and Kibutzes etc, all really just charachter building hardships that make the little shiats appreciate civilization.

"Welcome to England!

"You will notice we have many boats here. You cannot take these boats! If you want a boat, save up or get a loan for one.

"Now we're going over to the pond there and we are going to not steal the paddleboats!"
