I think I'm starting to understand why citizenship tends to be one of those things you either have to begin with or never get.

On the other hand, I guess the sunk costs fallacy is a great way to build loyalty to your new country of residence.

The fact that they ask if you're a communist is fucking hilarious.
Communist or party of another other totalitarian regime, hands up if your government doesn't count as totalitarian, anyone?

I find it interesting that the question about military service does not distinguish between militants, insurgents and soldiers - seems more concerned with identifying anyone who has any fighting experience irregardless of legitimacy

Hey, America's got plenty of room for war criminals who were party to genocide. Some of them even celebrated public figures! Just ask the East Timorese! Oh hey, and nothing like shrugging at genocide when we can say it's not our business, feeling pleasure at the thought of carpet-bombing civilian populations, or laughing at other war criminals regretting their actions.

So yeah, war criminals and mass-murderers are welcome here, as long as you're not a damned dirty red.

That question is for identifying people who are really committed to following orders.

So you get bonus points for being really honest and keen, minus points for being genocidal - it balances out right?

They ask about polygamy and prostitution. It sounds like an application to a church.

Hard science is like a sword, and soft science is like fear. You can use both to equally powerful results, but even if your opponent disbelieve your stabs, they will still die.

Polygamy is important info for anyone who's had cheeki marriage time in Saudi Arabia or Indonesia and prostitution is illegal in your country, no?

Prostitution is illegal in...Most of the US.  I think there's one state where it actually isn't and it's one of the conservative ones for maximum ironies.

Negative. Prostitution is legal in some counties of Nevada (but not Los Vegas), and used to be an unenforced misnomer in New Hampshire until seven years ago or so.

I like how prostitution is illegal but porn isn't.

That's been funny with the recent shenanigans in California, which has been trying to pass a "workplace safety" law requiring all pornographic actors to wear googles, condoms, and I think either gloves or hair nets during all shoots.

The actual reason is to try to force porn producers out of California.
