Nobody should blame that man.You don't know his story. I have been to that same America and on the street, inside the underground subway trains most especially, you meet American citizens young and old come up to me to beg for 10 cents! See the America on TV is far different from the reality on ground.
In America i saw people hawk by the roadside in New York just like Nigeria. Its the small sales they sell that they can pay bills from. It ain't easy for everyone. Its not laziness, its just Life!!

Please i have a question,
A friend is married to a US citizen. Her husband filed for her to come over. Due to marriage she will be a citizen. The plan is to file for her parents to join her. After which she or her parents will file for her siblings to come to the US. Some of which are married and well into their 30s. 
Question is: how can her parents get citizenship by virtue of thier daughter being one? Is it even possible?
Also can she or her parents file for the rest of the siblings?

Hahaha, I do use the lavatory but I am super tensed up all through the flight duration, but at the same time, I see my fellow passengers so relaxed, chatting and having the best of time on-board, I will now ask myself, why are other passengers calm and relaxed but I am worried and fearful grin, I have been told to take sleeping pills when boarding to make me sleep off but I know myself, even with sleeping pills, I will not sleep grin
If you take sleeps pills before boarding how will you pass through customs and immigration before boarding?
For me the take off and landing scares the shit out of me. The worst landing i experienced was with an all female crew pilot team. The woman was landing plane like kilode shocked shocked
I never look forward to flying. RiP to the dead

Yes Sir... actually, a bit more than N500k Naira monthly. You get to a point in your life where you find out that money is not a good motivator, particularly because you will always want more of it. So you don't make life-impacting decisions on the basis of money alone.

Besides, N500k monthly is not so much money. It is less than $2k CAD... a dishwasher on minimum wage makes more than that in Toronto.
This is the post I read and knew that he didn't have a clear mindset. How in the world can you compare the someone earning 500k in Nigeria to a dishwasher in Canada. Its called minimum wage because all that the dishwasher in Canada will make is to live basic minimum life.With 500k salary in Nigeria you are comfortable. You can save buy your car, build your house to your taste employ househelp, driver and security guard. Why do people keep comparing wages like this? The cost of living abroad is very high. The salary deductions and taxes are high, the bills come in monthly and you must never ever be behind in payments else there are consequences. Plus the system abroad is credit and more credit. To buy a house in Nigeria or a car you save and fork out cash.Once you are done its all yours. But to buy a house and car abroad everyone does a payment plan. The day you can't afford to pay, you face repossession. If Nigeria can just get better with the economy, security and otherwise, Nigeria is the best place to Live in.

Health / Re: How Much Does Cataracts Surgery Cost In Nigeria? by Schwartz: 2:20pm On Feb 20, 2019
Thanks for the mentions. The major deciding factor is the after results post op. I say this because i know that some clinics do this surgery yet the patient becomes worse afterwards.
Anyone with very good vision post op?

Politics / Re: Sahara Reporters BREAKING: Wole Soyinka Endorses Moghalu For President by Schwartz: 7:01am On Feb 08, 2019
I listened to the Moghalu guy speak. He is indeed smart and worth given the opportunity to rule but the problems with Nigerians is that they do not reason towards this direction at all in choosing their leaders. And that's why we are still were we are today. Its gotten so bad that we are now the world's poorest nation yet people still fight over those who led us to all this mess in the first place. Doesn't it hurt that day after people and soldiers are being killed everyday? Mostly because of lack of sophisticated ammunitions which was budgeted for? Or is it because it doesn't affect other regions? Sometime I wonder do some people think at all? Is it that we are so used to mediocrity and lack of good governance that we still hopelessly cling to the same set of people year in year out?
Alot of us in the disapora want to return but its deeply saddening that Nigeria is not getting better and the hope of returning looks slimer and slimer. Why would I want to stay in another man's country? A strange land with the brutal cold and sometimes discrimination because of race? When my country has good food, great weather and warm people?
Just few years ago our fathers who studies abroad used to either return immediately or work for a while and then return. I spoke to returnees from America, Uk etc they all said there is no place like Nigeria. But now who is ready to take that risk? Its sad.

of course not! I was there. Even the guys that you meet to get your baggage behind immigration, they were saying the same thing. They were wondering how they will cope.

Travel / Re: Visa-seeking Nigerian Students Lament Sad Experiences At US Embassy by Schwartz: 11:07am On Nov 26, 2018
I was at Point of entry in the United States just 3 months ago. I swear we werein the the queue for hours! Why because, Infront of us were Chinese students over a hundred of them yes over a hundred! All of them were holding F1 student form at immigration. Guess what?! 90% of them could not speak a word in English. It was so bad that they announced on the speaker severally that Chinese translators should come to window this and that.
I just looked at it and said so they are accepting these people because they stand to gain?! Imagine admitting people in to study who do not understand a word in the language of instruction.
The way things are going around the world it is becoming clearer and clearer that we have no other option than to fix our own country and remain in it.

Crime / Re: 20-Year-Old Housemaid Narrates Ordeal At The Hands Of Her Bosses. Photo by Schwartz: 3:46am On Oct 04, 2018
I wish I could reach out to her and others in her situation. I used to be like her my situation was worse. I started life as a maid from the age of 4. The horrible beatings, the ugly painful scars, the molestations, the starvation ( being denied food many times for little things like not mopping the floor well), falling sick without acess to proper care, being refused from going to school anytime my slave mistresses wish amd the extreme hardwork! Running from one home to another only to discover time and time again, that its a different kind of wickedness for each home I ran to. When i discovered that the life of a forced maid (working for free) will take me no where in life; I took a hard decision and quit!
From the age of 19 I have been on my own. I have been homeless begging strangers for a place to sleep, food to eat. Life was THOUGH! With a capital T. From doing liittle paid jobs of lesson teacher to primary school kids, sponsoring myself back to school(it was hard i nearly gave up many times, I pulled through. I graduated from the one i could afford: a polytechnic. Some years ago I got better jobs started saving up, sickness came as a set back but God saw me through I saved my first million. Today, I look back I have sponsored myself to about 5 Western countries including USA which i returned from about 2 weeks ago. Life is not perfect but by the grace of God its far far better than where i was a dirty smelling girl that eveybody treated like shit.
If i have the power i would sponsor a bill that will protect the rights of housemaids. It should be a paid job with regulations like we have abroad. The mind blowing suffering housemaids and even house boysgo through is on another level.

Travel / Re: U.S Visit: Port Of Entry Interview/stories. by Schwartz: 7:38am On Aug 30, 2018
Hello Guys, I flew into USA 2 days ago. I booked KLM but when I went for check in they had moved me to Delta Airlines. So I flew direct Delta from Germany to Detroit. Online entertainment was okay. As per oyinbo food, I don't fancy it. Besides I don't eat certain foods so in my own accessment food was zero! They shared ice cream, nice looking chocolate which sweet tooths would like but I didn't eat it. The main course looked like a disaster. Next time I would cook and take with me on the flight. I was expecting the nice kind of Menu Emirates served me me on my Dubai flight. Flight was okay but I created drama during landing. It was scary. One kid was laughing at me. The landing from Detroit to JFK was better though.
At POE in Detroit
We met hundreds of young Chinese boys and girls with F1 visas. There was constant announcement for translators. Was wondering why anyone will come to an English speaking country to study and not be able to understand simple questions in English. A CBP official was saying same thing too. But they let most of them in.
My questions were: Passport please. What do you do? Why are you here? Conference
How long are you staying? 2 weeks
Where are you going to? Anything agriculture to declare?? No. That was it, nothing else. Stamped in for 6 minths. No questions about how much I brought in. Then I went to baggage claim picked my suitcase off to my connecting Delta flight. Food on domestic flight was only 50 naira juice and 10 naira biscuit. My initial conference during interview was for a conference in July however I didn't travel till now. I was supposed to go to San Francisco but I said I was going to Washington DC. At interview I said i will spend 6 days at POE i said 2 weeks, it was not a problem at all. The change of city and travel date but was not an issue at all however I stuck to still attending a conference. They didn't even ask for the conference invite sef. I was just scared of POE for nothing!
Mehn I can't still get over the horrific train ride from JFK it's shocking that a country as great as America has horrible transport system. The littering on the streets is another thing I don't get.
Can't wait to be back in Germany jare. Thanks Seyewest. Chop kiss kiss kiss

For those going for visa interview, no need being scared... well over 10,500 B1/B2 visas were issued to Nigerians in May... not much of a difference to what we have months back... So that people don't come here to say they get visas doesn't mean Nigerians arent being issued...

https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/legal/visa-law0/visa-statistics/nonimmigrant-visa-statistics/monthly-nonimmigrant-visa-issuances.html
I am just thinking that high figure of visas may have been issued to Nigerians resident in other countries who applied from US embassy of thier country of residence..
