Original messageThings that Keep You Awake at Night
Until 2000, I just had the usual concerns, the occasional anxiety/panic attacks, that any man in his late thirties experienced: Is my wife still "into me" after seven years of marriage? Are my son and two daughters okay? Will they be okay in the future? Just your average, entirely boring set of worries.
Then I saw five so-called "Justices" throw the Presidency to a man who was clearly not qualified, and who had obviously NOT been elected!
Then, nine months later, September 11. You know, I initially supported Bush in his attack on Afghanistan, that is, until I belatedly realized that "bringing bin Laden to justice" and "fighting the war on terror" was merely a pretext for Messrs. Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, etc. to impose their own, twisted visions of "national security" upon the world, and upon us, ably assisted by---I keep coming back to that word again---our "Justice" Department!
Now, bouts of insomnia, such as the one I'm experiencing tonight, are commoplace: Will the President resist the Cheneys and the Kristols and pull ALL of our boys & girls out of Iraq AS PER THE SCHEDULE AGREED TO BY BUSH? We he remain true to his commitment to begin the drawdown of forces in Afghanistan in the middle of next year despite all the chickenhawks and laptop warriors urging him not to? And what of Iran? Will he have the testicular fortitude enabling him to Just Say No to the neocons?
Will we, as a country, again be as stupid as we were in November of '04? Will we idiotically place a Sarah Youbetcha, Batshit Bachmann or Devil's Daughter Liz in the White House?
And, if we do, how the fuck do I move myself and my family to Australia?????
I'm guessing mole here. :DMay the FORCE be with you!

The queue is years long, we are currently slamming the door on a lot of immigration, we dont take dopers and welfare queens, you don't have any skills we want, and even if you did, you will be waiting YEARS for approval.
Permanent residency visas are hard to get, and you better be prepared to prove to us that we would benefit from having you here. Use a tourist visa and overstay, and we will find you, arrest you, confine you, charge you for confinement and then ban your ass for more years.
And before you open your yap and start yowling, I suggest you take a good long hard look at the US attitudes to legal immigration.
Your buddy Obama has won very few friends here, his disdain and disinterest in the Pacific zones has been noticed, we are well aware of who and what he is...even if you get here, get used to us calling him what we like when we like. Obambi is a running joke to us, we are soon to elect a conservative government which you wont like, you dont get free health care, you dont get welfare unless you are a citizen or a sponsored skilled worker (and you better have skills we want),
We don't take kindly to immigrants telling us how to live our lives, come here and trash us and see how fast the welcome mat is yanked from under you. Aussies are plain spoken and blunt to a fare thee well.
Your US Constitutional rights mean jack and shit here, you will NOT be able to vote in our elections unless you are a citizen or a permanent resident (good luck with that), you wont like our gun laws, there is no First Amendment, no 2nd amendment either.
There are crosses everywhere, people are proud of their churches, and wont take kindly to your slagging them off. If you come here you better unfuck your skull and mind your P's and Q's.
The overall cost will come to something like AUD$3500 - $4000 including the Visa Application Charge, skills assessment, medicals, PCCs and IELTS English testing (if required for additional points). You must also meet health and character requirements and further down the visa processing track will have to have a medical and submit police clearances.
(and that means if you have a criminal record...no dice, buddy)
Feel free to try. :D
