My post on www.uncultured.com

Shawn,
I am sorry that you had to go through these hate comments. At least I, being from Bangladesh, welcome you to Bangladesh. Currently I am in Toronto, the place you are from. Apart from hate comments, you did not put up some good comments. I am sure you had some.

With the fertile land, Bangladesh; $2 earning per day is a huge income for a lot of Bangladeshi people. Unlike US or Canada, the Government does not highly tax people( no tax at all for these low income groups). The tax in Toronto is 13%(was 15%) on almost everything. Whether one has a job or not, one has to pay taxes(which is a hghe revenue to the Government). The Government can in return fund capital based project(may be your one too).
Car insurance is the highest in Toronto. I was assessed to pay S300 per month to get my car with the only driver being me. Where this huge easy money of insurance goes, even Government does not intervene ostensibly proving how they want to get involved in easy money earning by some favored companies.

As a country Bangladesh is a great country. I say this because I've travelled both east and west. The cost of living is low, climate is extremely favorable. One can live in Bangladesh with US$100(hundred) per month easily. But that applies to locals only. You would not be able to stay in Bangladesh even if you are given US$3000(three thousand) per month. My belief, because you are accustomed to Toronto living.

Any way welcome to Bangladesh. It is a great country. You are welcome to stay at my place when I am in Bangladesh (I am planning to go back to Bangladesh)
