[quote]But it's sort of a moot point, because employer 401Ks and 403Bs dont' let you do that (at least mine never have).

On the other hand, Singapore has 4 official languages and went from a backwater country to an arguably more prosperous country (based on GDP per capita) than the USA. Switzerland also has 4 official languages. Granted, none of these two countries are anywhere close to the size of the USA or even U...

They are technically illegal aliens. Once your application for asylum is turned down, you are technically illegal. Whether or not they get a deferral on deportation proceedings is another matter.

FWIW, I do watch La Liga and Bundesliga and would watch more often if it were easily available on TV. Speaking for myself, I do prefer watching the best leagues and don't usually watch the MLS. Most fans of other sports would probably say the same. How many college football fans watch games from ...
