What logical fallacy is "If you don't like it, move!"?

When criticizing government, society or whatever, people often retort, "If you don't like America, why don't you move somewhere else?" What kind of fallacy would this qualify as? At first glance, it doesn't appear to make an argument at all. However, there is an implied argument: If one doesn't like (whatever), one *should* move (rather than trying to fix the problem).Can anyone suggest what kind of fallacy this is?
