so my grandparents are getting up their in age, and they wanted to make one last big road trip before anything major keeps them close to home and their doctors. they were going to roll out to visit various family members across the country, and then up into canada to visit my grandma's fathers grave. well, there's no chance of that now. the government would not give my grandma a passport. apparently, after living in the USA for over sixty years her citizenship is "questionable" yup, i've got granny terrorist. she was born in canada to a french mother and her father didn't have ANY citizenship because he was a member of the french foreign legion and had all sorts of interesting adventures that led to some crazy political problems back in the day. the kinda thing where the governent denies any knowledge of you if you get caught. i'm sure it wouldn't be a problem for the cute little old lady to get back and forth across the border, but she doesn't want to deal with the hassle. so she doesn't get to visit her childhood home, or her father's final resting place. sad. i'm all for having secure borders, and all that jazz.... but isn't this just a little bid odd? a 78 year old woman is a pretty low risk if you ask me. i hope this isn't too political. i just wanted to rant a little bit.
