(OVERLAND PARK, KS) - The July 4 holiday is a fitting time to take the oath of U.S. citizenship and many courts across the country hold naturalization ceremonies at historic locations in their community. The 2012 highlights included:

District Judge David Waxse (D. Kan.) presided at the Overland Park, Kansas ceremony, administering the oath to 95 new citizens in 104 degree heat. Congressman Kevin Yoder was a featured speaker.

District Judge Michael Telesca (W.D. NY) and Bankruptcy Judge Paul Warren (W.D. NY) conducted an oath-taking ceremony on the steps of the circa-1822 Town Hall at the Genesee County Village and Museum in Mumford, New York. Forty new citizens from 24 counties participated.

Chief Bankruptcy Judge Peter Bowie (S.D. Calif.) presided over a naturalization ceremony on the aircraft carrier, USS Midway, now a museum in San Diego. Thirty-six sailors, Marines and soldiers from 19 countries, became U.S. citizenship during the ceremony.

Sooo, if you are a teacher, dentist, nurse or fireman and want to be a US citizen, you are outta luck unless you have the appx $10,000 required to apply for citizenship. BUT, if you are a trained killer, a military mercenary, you get a fast track to citizenship. American "values" on full display. The Fourth Reich is alive and well..in America.
