3. Interview arranged. Office is 600 miles from where you live
(1 month, $600)
4. Application approved. Unfortunately, in the meantime the company sponsoring you has gone out of business. Luckily for you, since you have already sold your house in your home country, one of your American ex-sponsors falls in love and agrees to marry you, and you start your K-1 visa process
(3-6 months, $600)
5. Your fiancee is now unemployed, and cannot prove her love for you in the only way the American government understands: earning power. She gets a job at Walmart, and you are eventually granted an interview.

As a new immigrant to the United States, you have many challenges to overcome. These include:
There are advantages, though. For example, America is probably the only place in the world that deep fries its cheese.
And the only country that does this.
Occasionally, you may come across someone who was not born in America. They are usually distinguished by their shifty eyes, Lenin caps and thin, sickly bodies.

If someone tells you that they are not American, speak slowly and loudly to them to make sure they can understand you. Remember, where these people come from, strength is power. If they don't respond to you immediately, slap them around a little bit to gain their respect.
Also remember that America has more freedom than most other countries in the world. Demonstrate this freedom by confiding in the immigrant that you have a gun, and will use it if pushed.
