She'd better suck it up. Coming back to live with us is not an option. It's just drama, drama, drama all the time. Nothing's ever right and it's never her fault.
I *did* just find out she's got a job interview in a couple days, as a reading tutor for some grade school kids. Maybe it'll give her some perspective on her juvenile behavior.
Or she'll get in an argument with a 8 year old and wonder why the parents get all upset.

But edog called "bullshit" on Mimi and said it would take years for the friend to get his citizenship. And he was wrong.
Turns out I was right once again and you were wrong. He's been in the country for at least a decade, he's been trying for his citizenship for the last three years.

Now who has zero credibility?

All sorts of people have been in this country. Does he have residency? If so, how long? Has he gone out of the country? If so, how many times and for what length?

Those things matter.

What is your point? Tell us something we don't know. This has no bearing or relevance to the discussion. Mimi was trying to throw it in my face that some immigrant is gonna come over here, gain citizenship, and vote Democrat. She intentionally left out some very important details. THAT is what I was calling her out on.

My dad had that. The glare of death. Usually in the rear view mirror of the car. Stopped me cold and probably would still today. My sister was immune to it, though.

OT.

One of the side bar ads is for Stella Artois Cider. I am reasonably sure it was not on the shelf in Binny's on Sunday.

I am not sure whether I am interested or think we have been co-opted into something fashionable. Chi chi comes to mind, and not in a good way.

No surprise. Reading comprehension fail.

AFTER ten years of being in the country. And AFTER three years of marriage to a citizen. A little factoid that was left out of her initial posts.

That is SO not what I said.

I SAID he COULD have gotten it after three years!
I said he's been here for years.
I NEVER said he'd been trying for years.
This is the VERY FIRST TIME he's ever applied. It's been a MONTH.
ONE SINGLE MONTH.
He will be a citizen before the Haj.

You are wrong on every single point. All of them. Full stop.

BULLSHIIT. I said that ONE immigrant who is in the country NOW will be getting his citizenship.

Nope. In fact I gave details, which aren't anyone's business in order to clarify WHY he will have citizenship so quickly.

The mutt is an idiot. Of *course* he will have been in the country for X years because those are the rules, but the mutt seems to think that I was saying it is someone who just got off the boat for the first time. I probably shouldn't have assumed that he would know that's not possible.

I shouldn't have assumed that he would just know, like everyone else knows, that in order to get citizenship one must be a permanent resident residing in the country for a minimum of 5 years,(3 years if married to am American citizen). I forgot who I was dealing with...silly me.

He's been in the country since 2007. That is not "at least a decade." Do the math.

Never said ten or three years. I said he's been in the country for years. I said he would have been eligible after three years. Reading comprehension fail.

I am not wrong on a single one. And you know it. That's why you've got sand in your taint.
