It was a little easier in 1753 when my relatives showed up. Just had to get off the boat and hike over to Western Maryland to set up the homestead. Couple years later, got a little crowded in Maryland and they moved to Missouri in 1792.

Didn't have to take many tests then. Just be able to farm and shoot.

I wonder how often someone has decided not to become a citizen because of the potentate word. Like, they can easily leave behind the prince, state, and sovereignty, but they really have a problem with renouncing fidelity to their potentate.

Oh, Frankie? Make sure that you do none of the following after she is sworn in:

1) Shout "Death to America!" in either English or Farsi. Or any language, for that matter.

2) Do not shoot your AK-74 in celebration. In fact, I recommend not bringing any weapons.

3) Do not light any fires, or jump over any fires that you do light.

Such things are generally frowned upon in a federal courthouse.

Heh. I've had some funny furriner moments in my life, too. One that sticks out is getting pulled over for speeding when I was about 16. When I get tense, my accent tends to come out, so the cop knew I wasn't an American. The cop asked me where I was from and I told him. He said, "Well, we don't have Autobahns here! So, slow down or go back to your own country!!"

My family and my wifes family has been in this country since the early 1700's. But, we are all offspring of immigrants. We are all mutts. We are a mutt society. Farbia is just the latest member of the greatest and most successful mish mash of different religions/ethinicities into one country in the history of the world.

May she forever wave

Very well put BRC, the first real epiphany in my life came a few weeks into basic training as i really started to notice the incredible diversity of not just the boots but all of the cadre & support staff as well.

I distinctly remember thinking to myself, 'man, with all of these different kinds of guys from all over the US & the world, theres simply no way we can be beaten'.
