Hey, you say whatever you want about the immigration idiots in Sweetgrass, Montana, but you leave the drunken monkeys out of it!

Sometimes I shake my head in wonder, as my hand slowly moves toward the 6-shooter tucked in my waistband... That sucks. I apologize on behalf of those of us who wish we were better neighbors.

Oh yeah, this sounds familiar. Try being a single divorced mom in this american country of mine. Welfare, family court, child protective, all requiring rude moron status to work there. And remember, the rules only change when money and/or celebrity is involved.

Well, Reyne, that's because Australian civil servants have been under that hole in the ozone a little too long for their own good. The US has a prerequisite drunken monkey clause in their government employment contract; the Aussies have sunstroke.

immigration people give me hives, at least... but then, Canadian immigration people might not be as dumb as US-ers, I mean, they threw me out of Canada, after all...

My Dad married an American back in 2003 and as of yet she still hasn't gotten approved to become a citizen yet. She can't work here in Canada, it seems that she qualifies for health coverage, but nobody can manage to tell my Dad how to go about getting her a card since he needs proof of citizenship for it and as of yet she isn't a citizen. But then when he contacts immigration they say that she does qualify but again can't manage to supply any information that would lead to her actually getting covered. Let's face it, all Governements are dumber than rocks

Last time I was in Sweetgrass, Montana, I got a penalty for almost killing their punter during a HS Football game.
I'm basically sacrificing any profit from the sale of my beloved truck to pay for a goddam Migration Agent, but she's oh-so worth it not to put up with all that shit.
Little does wife know, but she's not just married to ME, but my whole fucked-up Montana clan. She's in for it.

being rude and unhelpful is the american way, damn it! i'd love to live in canada and hope to one day do so, but i think you're sick of all the people in the US who want to move away from bush, bigotry and the laundry list of other reasons to flee this hell hole.

Juddhole, devian, Kat, and candoor - If you're a US citizen and the border guards actually stamp your passport and let you in, you can legally remain and work in Canada for 6 months. You can then apply for an extension about a month and a half before the 6 months are up. Now, the problem for me and my long-distance love interest is that when I sponsor my love for permanent resident status while he's within Canada, the application is put at the bottom of the stack. Priority is given to couples who are physically split up - then it takes about 6 months to process. Otherwise - your guess is as good as mine. Makes it tricky to decide how to go about doing this, as I don't want Mr. Loveman to have to wait 3 or 4 years to qualify for Canadian health care, thereby having to maintain his private US insurance longer than he should have to. Fuck immigration, man. It sucks. I say we all become illegal aliens and overwhelm every country's immigration department. There's strength in numbers, you know.

If all else fails, have your sister come into the country via Calais, Maine. Those folks just don't give a shit about Homeland Security (or security in general): http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8174185/

Lest I ever forget why I hate the country in which I was born, the bureaucrats who run the show are always quick to remind me why I felt that way in the first place.
