  3. I, too, have dreamed of living in America since childhood, when my Mom and I Collected and Dug Potatoes, I was told by Her (Mom's parents), they were ordinary inhabitants, residents of the Enemy Soviet Union and their Communist Government convinced them that It was the Americans who dropped it by airplanes chemicals on the fields of Soviet agricultural land, and Colorado beetles. Well, of course, I laughed, and I myself dug a hole in another place in the soil of the garden for most of the collected beetles, did not allow them to be poisoned, and they were also often ignited so that they would not be set on fire by the rest of the parasites of the family, I said that I had already corroded them, then they all went to dinner, of course, with the previous potatoes, you know, staying there for a short time, I told the beetles that I would be like you and I was born in the USA in the most wonderful state of our Planet, the Support of All Mankind. If in reality it was so that the beetles were brought in, then this is good, the Enemy should not be full. I also always wanted the beetles to devour the entire stock because I was really depressed by the conversations of this family and Mom, too, are meaningless and empty talk. all the same, Mom and I did the main work, they collected, Grandmother only planted, I put it in the cellar, but when everything was collected, for example, 100 bags in the amount of the harvested crop, they distributed it to other members of the so-called family just like that, for nothing, they did not work , will come from the city, moreover, a provincial one, from the same ridiculous hole in the world, they will bring some pissing rags to everyone, and Granny and Grandpa are happy and they said that the children gave them, they brought them, Therefore, I call their other children besides Mother parasites. Mom and I did not even think to curse them all, but the curse somehow overtook everyone, they all became impoverished, drank themselves to death from alcohol and an idle lifestyle, their precious children turned out to be worthless and ridiculous, married the Mammy and Daddy Sons of Basmachs, and they took unworthy girls, of a very low class and position, as in the saying, Meet two homeless people and said each other, let's live together, do not grieve, but what else to do and they fucked happily ever after. God, I'm so unhappy, and so is my Mom. So I want to live happily in a happy, beautiful, developed and civilized country, but for some reason no one wants to help, even 50 dollars or cents will not be thrown, everybody interacts with each other. year, about 30,000 thousand receives. And Mom and I are ready to raise funds and move on a legal basis to collect about 5-10 thousand dollars, this will be Immigration. but I am writing something to politicians, stars, journalists, many are silent, no one begs for money irretrievably, only asks for a loan. This person DEAR USA TODAY Can't imagine how a beggar who came here to us in the States, such a fine fellow, but they don't say to me that I am the most leper slave, and the last person on earth. Sorry Ladies and Gentlemen, no one has been rewarded for indifference and apathy! I just wanna be Boy for Lucas or Cocky…
