Eisenhower was no backward-thinking president. He spearheaded the Civil Rights era.

The US Military is an excellent route to citizenship. You do need a green card to join. But don't listen to Sconn, you seem to know English quite well. My USMC recruiter was from Niger and recieved his citizenship through the military.

Keep the faith and do what you want to do, not what others tell you to do.

Definitely better than Sccon. I'm not sure if it's laziness or just a lack of understanding.

No doubt Spike. They know the nuances that are 9 times out of 10 over looked by native speakers.

well.. atleast here we have been teached the so called "proper English".
and look at me.. school? what's that?.. haha.

yeah.. not that smart fellow.. but English i do understand and perhaps type.
doesnt mean that i could speak it too well. the thing with english language
is just the ease of it on the basic level.. if you go deeper, its quite dirty deal indeed.
our own language is presistant within the overall punctuation and differences..
in English you have to twist and turn the different vowels to suit the occation.
again.. im no expert. but so i have heared.. and it seems to be the case.

I got a diploma from German secondary school qualifying for university admission or matriculation, so i think that my english and cognitive skills should suffice. And i am no racist who wants to shoot muslims or who tries to satisfy his sick killing fantasies, i just want to defend democracy! Therefore I hope working at the army would give me the opportunity to build up democracy ... yeah i know it sounds idealistic
