seeing the rude, crude, horrible President on TV, as I try to avoid that.
With about 1/2 the country favoring him, I am really in the mood to
escape.
However, not in the 20-40 age bracket &
do not know if I can. Going to Kenmare Ireland
 for 3 weeks...investigating.  London=my love> too expensive
The most permanent characteristic in life is change.

^I've got friends in Canada who have offered to sponsor me
Knowing what my grandmother went through to get here I'm not ready to give it up just yet
hard choices isn't it?

^ so, your grandmother was tough and determined and went after a better life?

You'd be following in her footsteps, then?

(I come from a long line of migrants. I am not sure about my great great grandparents, but every generation after that has included several.)

Is emigration to a highly sought after country like Canada really possible through sponsorship from friends? Jeez, I am being sponsored in the USA by blood relatives and expect to get a Green Card when I'm 103.

The us is notorious for being hard to get citizenship for. I would bet there are few countries more difficult.

Very true. Argh, all the good countries want you to be a rocket surgeon trillionaire, unfortunately. Like, can't loser people live somewhere nice too?

That's a good question. Marriage with a person who already has the citizenship you desire does help a lot, if your parents were inconsiderate enough to have nationalities you desire less.

This makes it sound like I married a Dutch national on purpose. Well, I did marry her on purpose (as opposed to accidentally getting married - is that even possible?), but because I wanted to marry her, rather than because she was Dutch.

And I do know someone who kind of hoped to meet an Englishman she could want to marry, because she wanted to be allowed to stay in the UK and have the rights that went with being a British national. But she does love her husband and they have been together for nearly 15 years and counting.

Are you not the marrying kind, hhayt? Though admittedly, a true loser, by definition, has difficulty persuading someone to marry them even if they are the marrying kind. (I mean that by definition, a loser's plans don't work out, not that all unmarried a are losers :o) The other problem with being an absolute loser is that even if you live somewhere nice, you tend to be excluded from the niceness by poverty etc :-\

LFL, I'm married to the sea, and we aren't considering polygamy just yet. It would cause too many waves.
