Adoption Shouldn’t be this Difficult

But it can be, thanks to our federal government.

The Stasi Family

Of all the federal government departments and agencies, one of the most useless, save for maybe the first 30 or years of its existence, is the Department of State. The State Department is supposed to be the foreign policy adviser to the President, and employs over 15,000 people. Around 8,000 or so are “diplomats,” most of whom couldn’t negotiate themselves out of a wet paper bag. And it seems anyone can be Secretary of State – eg.: Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Madeline Albright.

They are also in charge of issuing visas, and as we’ve witnessed by the amount of terrorists and other ne’er-do-wells they’ve allowed in, they’ve done a real bang up job.

It seems the only time they adhere to strict visa policy, is when law-abiding American citizens attempt to adopt foreign children, because we know what a security risk a five year old from Nigeria will likely be.
