Immigration is a touchy topic in America. And you can pontificate about it to your heart's wish depending on where you stand on the political spectrum, but if you are in a limbo, or possibly facing deportation, that is not exactly time for idle talk. It is time for action. It is time for an immigration lawyer.You need a well informed skilled attorney to navigate the bureaucratic maze that is the immigration bureaucracy. Darren Silver and Associates is one such team. They have a track record of having handled well "seemingly impossible cases." They stay on the top of issues.

It will conclude with all Arab countries having turned into democracies. The Berlin Wall will fall all over again. Israel has built one. Israel is what South Africa was.

I have been disgusted with all the innocent lives lost in Iraq and Afghanistan. Some specific examples stand out, like blowing up a wedding party from the sky, but the numbers are out and out outrageous. Bush killed more than 100,000 Iraqis. That is not okay.

The Al Qaeda is not a state. But America the superpower was only prepared to go after a state. The US military might had not prepared to go after an organization like the Al Qaeda. So the medicine looked for a disease and found Saddam instead (I don't miss the guy).
