Default Regd. the admin fixes

Hi,

I whole heartedly support this campaign and will be doing my bit too. just a few thoughts:

1. In the draft letter to president, the line "Reinstate premium processing of
Immigrant Petitions." is a bit ambigous and dosent specify which petition.
Shouldnt it read "Reinstate premium processing of I-140 Immigrant Petitions."
2. Also shouldnt the goals be in the order of ease of acheivability. Many of the
more difficult (though more powerful) goals are at the top wheras items like
reinstating I-140 premium proessing are at the bottom.

What do you folks think..?

People to whom this petition is going know that the Immigrant Petition implies I-140 petition. We do not want our letter to read like an alphabet soup.

You really cannot determine the achievable factor of a goal on a scale of 1 to 100 so that ordering is moot. In fact, there is some merit in keeping our most ambitious goals upfront - with enough support from the community we might just achieve them.

Gurus, correct me if I am wrong.
i am not a guru... but CIS can easily make things more difficult for you than congress intended.

namechecks are not authorized by congress (for GC anyway), by CIS uses them to screw people anyway.

"same or similar" in AC21 is a good enough clause. Do not needle them to come up with a rigid rule, because whatever they come up with will be worse than what you have now.

At least now they have some leeway to help you, and you have _some_ chance to move in career.

jeez...

Some say "Who cares for GC when you have choice to go home"
Chanduv23:

I understand your enthusiasm of spreading +ve ness , but you need to also look at the practical implications on the situation. You are too criticizing and self-centric in what you beleive is the right thing to do.

Things do not work the way you expect at times and backfire. All I am saying is to give it a second thought if you are not getting a huge turn out of people. If you believe you are the smartest ass in the forums, tell me how many people you beleive would come forward and write a letter to the president. It's nothing to do with whether you did it, but are taking off the apprehensions and motivate other people to do it.

I agree with comments from walking_dude as it's inspiring and has a point. Get out of the shell and look at the world from a different perspective.

It's best to ignore such losers who beam negative-energy. Their penchant for inaction is a self-fulfilling prophecy that dooms their life. Nothing will happen to them in life, as they don't do anything to make things happen! . Don't join their league.
thank you.

Shame on those who are scared or pessimistic. All you people do is to gaze at the sky and wait for the stars to fall.

If you are so scared - how will u raise your children? What will u teach them? Cowardice? Will U teach them to run away from issues? Will u teach them how to not cooperate?

I am pretty straight forward in my approach and do not know how to "sugarcoat". This is not my own organization, I am not the founder of this organization, I am just a member like you. While it is individual's choice of doing what they want to do, what I have noticed is that the negative energy does have cascading effect, especially when things do not happen, those who spread negative energy seem to influence people. Once again, this is individuals own perspective. The fact that things do not happen easily we have to blow trumphets into the ears of people. Like a member said sometime back "Eagles which never flew - would not dare to fly until they are pushed, and when they are pushed forcefully and dropped into the air - they automatically start flying".

I have done what I can in the best of my capacity and continue to do so, I have considered IV as a self help group and also conducted meetings in the tri state area and continue to motivate people to make them feel a sense for the community.

If you look at IV as YOUR organization - you can see why it is important to feel a sense for the community.

The biggest issue our community faces today is the flow of negative energy. To quote examples, I was able to convince some friends for the rally in DC. Everything was going well, now when these people discussed with their collegues they were reluctant and did not show interest. The negative energy prompted my friends not to attend the rally because they felt that not many people are going for it and they tried to convince me out of IV. Such negative energy flows everywhere in the community and we have to overcome it. We can do it only by example.

Look at all those other immigration forums where people are talking bad about IV including their administrators and their owners - people who follow those websites will hate IV and hinder all our efforts. Such negative energy when it is flowing at a greater level - will cause more and more damage to our community.

It is simple - if you attack me for what I do - you are spreading negative energy - you are making a common man take a back seat and not encourage them to cooperate

If I point at h1bmajdoor's posts - I am doing it just to make sure that the positive energy flows and negativity does not influence the community.

it is a tough battle especially when you have thousands of daggers pointing at you ready to poke you.
Well, you say I am a smartass - so be it.

And if you do not support the community - stay away - why poke at someone who is doing something?
