alas

Salon is reporting that there was not voter fraud. If any media outlet would be all over it, it would be Salon. Which means, also that The Daily Mirror asks a serious question. Salon is also reporting on how it's very easy to immigrate to Canada. Apparently it's easier if you have a lawyer, because I didn't score so well on the self-assessment. So many things in life are easier with lawyers. I don't understand why people hate them so much. After about five years of living in Canada and jumping through hurtles, you can become a citizen. Now in five years, who knows who will be in power, but when you hear that Clinton, that great liberal who dems looove so much, was urging Kerry to pick up votes by verybally bashing queers, he gets a lot less likeable. Most Canadians favor gay marriage, which is already legal in two provinces and soon will be legal throughout the country. So, you could also Marry Your Way into Candian Citizenship even if you're queer and looking for true love. Canada seems to have a fair amount of arts funding, including a lot set aside for Canadians. The downside is that nobody outside of Canada has ever heard of any Canadian composers. But having healthcare would be nice.

My plan: Germany. I'm putting off PhD/DMA most likely just to be an expat for a while. Maybe a long while.

Hmm...why do people hate lawyers? When it comes to dealing with the government, the only thing we have going for us is that we sort of learn how to game and/or get around The System, and we can do that for a fee for our clients.

Now, who created The System?
