OK so i am considering emmigrating to america when i turn 21, but i have literally no excuses for getting a green card, i have no family, no job there, and i really cant stand this country, can any of you guys think of reasons to get a green card that doesen't require either of those excuses?

thanks in advance

You're only 16. I'm sure in the next five years you'll have job prospects and qualifications.

I guess you mean immigrate, and i wouldn't call them excuses to get a green card cause it kinda sounds like you've done something wrong.

You'd be better to call them reasons, and say you wanted a job or something.
What country are you in at the moment?

Last I checked there isn't a border between the US and the UK. Only one man can walk on water.

Come on man, Im on my 24 hour with no sleep, I wasnt thinking. I mean... The US does have its borders wide open was the basicly the point I was making.

Technicaly speaking I guess you do have to cross a border to get into the US from the UK.... even if its seperated by a gigantic pond.

I live in this shit hole we like to call England, ive been researching it and my only options are having family in the US (which i dont), working for a company that requires me to live in the US to do it (which i dont, and doubt i will) or investing money (which i also doubt ill ever do)

They're pretty much everywhere, I have to live with one! 12 years old with an ASBO. Tut tut... I used to get beaten up in school every day by this massive black kid. The fact that I'm only 5'10 and built like a weed didn't help.

Luckilly there were very few neds at my school. We all just got on with things.

you do realise that there are Chav type people everywhere in the world. the US call theirs Wiggers I believe. The difference is that over there its easier to get hold of a gun. Chavs who act hard and use a baseball bat, or wiggers with guns?

What I'm trying to say is that moving to America wont help. The Chavs will just have a different label and a different accent.

There's a severe weather warning for tonight, too- heavy snowfall. I find that heavy snow brings out the best in Britain. It covers up all the shite and camoflages the chavs. Ah, lovely.

i realise that and agree with you totally, but i also think my quality of life over there will be much better thn it will be here, but i need people to answer my question, are there any other ways, i found out that if you go over and marry someone, your eligable, but im not one to take advantage of a girl

They aren't everywhere. They just seem to be mostly 'Up North'.
A friend of mine went to London and said they didn't see any. Same with Cornwall etc.
Seriously, its more or less as Northern thing. Anwhere past Peterborough is infested.

Just a few questions for you.
Why America? I mean if you're going to Emmigrate, at least make it somehwere worth while. People were moving to America in the late 20's and 30's for a 'better way of life'. Nowadays, all large 1st world coutnries have the same problems. Moving to the US solves nothing.
Secondly, there are loads of nice places in England 'Chav' free and produce a better way of life also. I mean, I can understand what you mean. Its Manchester. Its like Hell V 2.0. But seriously, you dont have to move country. It probably would be better (and cheaper!) to move out of the area.

its not just chavs that are the reason, but its one of the main reasons in my head right now, and last time i checked, manchester is north, hell, im almost in cumbria, how north can you get

i just hate this country, its people, its weather, its attitude.
i have been to america several times and i have to say its virtually the opposite, the people are nice, the weather is great (i was in florida during hurricane wilma and it didnt put me off) , it just think its a great country

go to uni get a decent degree, get a masters and apply under EB2 category. It's a long process and most people who apply dont get one but if you're set on it. You're gonna have to work for it

You don't think money would help buy a house, etc in another country?
And for bribes as well.

True, but the chavs we have here don't run in packs, there's not enough of them, so they are really no problem. If anything, they get their ass beat more than anything.

Oh, and if you move to any of the southern states, you may wanna brush up on your spanish. They are infested with illegal aliens, very few of whom speak english..........

I know Machester is North. I was just stating a point that Chavs aren't 'everywhere' in the UK, like you suggested. Plus Scotland is more North than Manchester...

By you hating the British people I assume you're just refering to Chavs right? They make up like 10-15% of the population. The remainder of the British people are better than most in Europe in my experience.

As for your like towards America. Good for you. If you like it then you should move. Im just saying, America isn't the only 'best' place in the World. Personally, i think the American people are arrogant attention seeking whores. But thats just my opinion.

We don't have that many illegal aliens. You're from Michigan, I'm from Alabama. 2nd, if you think Florida natives are nice, come to Alabama I don't know what you mean by Chavs, could you elaborate??

chavs are basially teenagers wrecking things and beating people up for no reason at all, expecially people with long hair. Ive been beaten up a few times for simply walking past, but this time i got hit by a rock on the back of my head, got knocked out, woke up in A+A in hospital with searing pains in my face, head and ribs, turns out they kicked me a lot of times in the face/ribs and noone came to my aid. I only got 'saved' as it were becuase a friend of mines dad drove past and saw me on the floor and got them away.

EDIT : To giantraven : i dont suppose where you live you get rapings/beatings going on every half hour or something along those line. I dont suppose people want you dead for being who you are (having long hair). The poeple here are nasty and it seems like theyd rather stick a pole up there ass that speak tp you pleasantly, and that i can honestly say, i never came across in the several states i have visited
