It's the problem with unelected bureaucrats, many forget they are public servants and that they work for the citizens of the USA, they take sadistic pleasure in making people's lives hell, to them you are nothing but a case number.
I think it's deeper than that. It lay within our culture in a place that no one looks or cares. The few folks who have tried to bring problems of legal immigration to the limelight are met with folks and media who just don't give a shit. I mean, I know you know that, and Mick, and Tsap and the other old timers, but there is a rising trend to just tolerate torture because 'they' must have a reason to be torturing you.
It's bullshit, it's wrong, and it's George Orwell happening before our eyes. I don't know that it can be stopped, but I know it's wrong. Singing a couple of hymns with Peter, Paul and Mary, Bob Dylan or what have you just don't hit the public pulse. Who cares huh? Nobody cares. Well, not nobody, there may be a few who care, but it won't hit the 24-hour plane crash, republican vs progressive news cycle.
I miss my wife more than words can express. She is strong, and she is patient. I have evaporated. If I have to go back to China to be with her, I will. I know the life there. I know the pollution, the health care, the corruption, but I also know the kind people. A people who care a lot more than the empty hearted folks now occupying space in the US landscape.
I don't have much longer as my money is running out. There is no way to know whether even if I am lucky enough to get a job in the coming days, whether it will produce a visa for my wife. Surely, her daughter cannot come because of a jerkoff in Guangzhou, whose nose I would like to break. Hey GZ dudes, no worries, I will just punch once and only one person. The dude who caused this shit to happen.
Nevertheless I will go to be with her if needed. I know I can be sharp tongued and have alienated just about everyone, but, my bite is worse than my bark. Well, bark and bite are both bad, but I'm not a bone chewer.
