About Me

Demoralized, depressed, destroyed by American immigration law written and pushed for in 1952 by two xenophobes determined to keep people out.

If Agent Orange is 238lbs, I'm the Crown Prince of Mars (picture comparison)

The human slug at "238." Buggy-whip arms and everything!

Me at 265-270

Which one is honest?

I followed DUer LeftStreet's advice from my earlier thread about reuniting with my wife

This thread was where LeftStreet suggested this.

I have never been this desperate in my life. China changed its rules and made my $890 layover in Taipei flight invalid for the green QR code upon arrival. They now require all flights to be direct flights into China.

The airlines are grossly inflating my flight to reunite to my wife. It's now between $5000 - $9000. My school is covering $2500 of it. I have another $1500.

It's been two years since I've seen my wife. We've delayed children. We've been rejected for her green card twice.

LeftStreet told me to setup a gofundme and I have never been this desperate in my life.

Could DU left me like you would have if my wife got her green card and I continued my run for the Arizona Legislature?


Thank you.

Updating the never ending saga of my wife and my travels through immigration

As stated before, my wife decided to have me come back to China to continue our never ending quest through the biased and insane legal immigration process that was written by two massive nativists and bigots in 1950 and became law or Truman's veto during the height of McCarthyism and the Red Scare.

I have my position overseas. I have all the paperwork. Now the Chinese government has thrown us a curveball and demands that all everyone overseas MUST take a direct flight to China (no layovers).

If one does not take a direct flight, when one lands they will not issue their "green" QR code clearance code and will not let you into the country.

The layover flight I originally found would cost me $850 and went through Taiwan. Now, according to the propaganda my wife has swallowed her entire life without one ounce of crititcal thought (hip hip hooray for controlling a narrative), Taiwan is part of China.

But. . .not for this. So my $850 one way layover flight ticket has turned into a $4K - $9.5K flight depending on the beginning and ending airport.

As a teacher in the lowest in pay in the country, and 35% of my gross pay is taken out for taxes and pension. . .then I have bills and sending money to my wife. . .I live pretty much paycheck to paycheck even while I go for my second master's degree.

I told everyone that COVID19 would be an authoritarian's wet dream in terms of restrictive policies and scapegoating. The Chinese government has convinced my wife, who is western educated, that Italy started the Coronavirus.

Now China is requiring those that come into pay highly inflated direct flight fares, and restricting Chinese people from getting or renewing passports in order to "protect them from foreigners with COVID19" in countries that are "not as resistant to this disease as China has proven to be."

I am losing faith and everything I will ever see my wife again. It has been almost two years.

The US has denied her green card visa twice (there is a latent anti-Chinese bias at the NVC) and China has all but priced my return to China out of my price range.

I knew this would become the new norm. Don't worry, if I can swing a flight back, I have a 28 day quarantine awaiting me.

New Putin troll talking point: How can people believe in a comedian turned president?

Amazing how dense these people are, considering they supported a movie actor turned president and a reality TV host turned president.

Right now, I believe their next president ticket will be "potted fern/bag of dead worms 2024."

Keep an eye out here, everyone. The Russian propaganda/troll mill is working overtime all over the net (message boards, social media, YouTube, etc).

Republican response in a nutshell: Talking points, no substance. Dear God, we got nothing!

When is the Republican Response lie-fest on so we can riff it MST3K style?

Ukraine survived the first week with minimual loss. Russian blitzkreig failed

Russian soldiers are pulling a "world war 1" by surrendering under low morale. Logistics have failed. Russian soldiers are ill-trained, ill-equipped, were lied to, conscripted into the military, and are committing self-sabotage.

Oligarchs have little of their money left. Yachts are being tracked, property is being seized.

Ukraine's president is fighting with soldiers and the people showing what he is made of. Ukraine is offering $15K in crypto to Russians that surrender without a fight to go home.

EU is about to, or already has, admitted Ukraine into the EU, releasing European hands to help Ukraine.

Ruble is in the toilet, economy has felt the 5th worst decline in human history.

Ukraine destroyed a massive convoy. Russian ships have no port to go to. Turkey shut down Gallipoli to them.

Putin overplayed his hand and failed. He will go down in history like Hitler and Mussolini.

I believe a French Revolution style uprising will happen against the oligarchs and Putin will get the same treatment Ceaususcu and his dullard wife got.

Imperialism and Fascism has failed again. Ukraine is antifa personified.

On the American front, Trump will be economically destroyed by this. Apologists like Wendy Rogers will get marginalized, and mouthpieces like Carlson have been exposed.

Putin fought the wrong style war against the wrong country at the wrong time.
