Meanwhile, in Kuwait...
American lady living in Kuwait commenting on daily occurrances through her warped perspective. Her travels take us beyond the boundaries of normalcy. NEW!

Sidebar: I commented on Facebook (related to the Bidoon issue) recently and someone wrote back, "Don't be a hypocrite. I've seen your comments and how you talk bad about Kuwaitis." Completely irrelevant to the Bidoon issue, regardless, but I wanted to note that I love Kuwait and Kuwaiti people (for the most part). I love Americans and the American people (for the most part). I think there is good and bad in every society. What I comment on is politics and/or negative changes (again this is my perspective) taking place in Kuwait. I'm not here to trash anyone for being from a particular country, of a particular color or sexual orientation or religion or anything else. Please don't be offended/git yer panties in a bunch.
Of note, if any Kuwait company offering products wants to get onto the US Government's procurement system (also known as the General Services Administration - GSA Schedule), they are SOL as Kuwait is not a TAA compliant country. Ooops. Why? Last I heard there was an issue of ensuring enforcement of licensing of software. I'm sure there are other issues. Info about Kuwait and WTO HERE.
