to visit the US again any time soon, certainly not until the new congress repeals this vile law:

immigrants arrested in the US may be held indefinitely on suspicion of terrorism and may not challenge their imprisonment in civilian courts, the shrubwad administration argued yesterday.

that feeling of nausea isn't just a leftover from my illness.

Right. That settles whether or not I'll be at apc15, then. Mind you, the cost of flights was putting me off a bit, anyawy.

Fuck. These guys are nuts. And the really scary thing, this isn't just some far-out thing - it's something you have to consider and worry about. If I go to Nigeria or whatnot and get arrested due to some fuckup, I'm pretty sure my government would be able to get me back. If the same happen in the US, I'd be fucked.

Not sure where I stand with visiting the states at this point. However, I'm sure I can forget ever getting my primary to come to the US again.

Oh, crap.

I'm not ready to completely disown my country, but oh, there are days and days and days when I want to.

I'm sorry. So, so sorry.

Quite. The scary thing is that while the new Congress might vote to repeal this, I doubt they can muster 2/3 to override the Shrub's veto (there won't be that big Democratic majority).

I've gone from hoping I could persuade certain people to visit me here, to considering it risky that a British friend of mine is considering moving here. (Yes, she has an American partner.)

More and more things that have happened in the last 6 years demand to be fixed as quickly as possible. This country is becoming the exact opposite that it was intended to be.
