"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

Citizenship is not a (birth) right!

But you have to join; just being born into a military family is not enough! Not anymore, anyway.

Children born to U.S. service members and government employees overseas will no longer be automatically considered citizens of the United States, according to policy alert issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on Wednesday.

Previously, children born to U.S. citizen parents were considered to be "residing in the United States," and therefore would be automatically given citizenship under Immigration and Nationality Act 320. Now, children born to U.S. service members and government employees, such as those born in U.S. military hospitals or diplomatic facilities, will not be considered as residing in the U.S., changing the way that they potentially receive citizenship.

So, embassy workers, military wives, anybody overseas on government business, better hie your ass home in time to give birth (no later than 36 weeks into pregnancy, generally), or your kid has to be naturalized.  Because:  foreigners!  Birthright citizenship sucks!  SOMETHING?  I dunno; I just agree with this guy.

Well, yeah, but:  the movie!

Of course it is.
