Come to my neighborhood.  Everyone here speaks Russian.
No, thanks  :D I hope my future kids to aviod Russian mentality. BTW where is this place?

Chicago suburbs.  The city and every area surrounding it is absolutely packed full of Russians, Ukrainians, and Polish.  I have to say, you've got my respect if you don't want your children to grow up acting like these people.  Especially the part where they live in the United States for 15 years and still can't string together a sentence of simple English...
It's a shame to listen to it. I hope they don't drink  too much like many Russians do here. But what do they do for a living in the USA if they can't string together a sentence of English?

The internet is the last frontier without a government.

Same thing they do in Russia, organized crime.

America is full of people who can't speak English. In my city, Houston, the government publishes everything in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese. Making it in America is possible if you're willing to work, English isn't necessarily required - though it helps a lot, of course.

Do you have a college degree? If you can program a computer or do some kind of engineering, it's possible to apply for jobs in America from outside the country, though it's a very difficult process.

There's so many of them that there are business run by people who employ only people from their parts of the world, and they don't need to speak English to get by.  Especially the closer you get to the city, there are businesses and areas where people only speak Russian, Polish, Vietnamese, Greek, etc. 

For example, my other half is Ukrainian - and his parents speak Russian since they grew up before the break up of the USSR.  Anyhow, they have lived here for 15 years and still have trouble with simple English.  They're nice people, and I certainly don't dislike them.  It just puzzles me as to how you live in a place for 15 years and now know the language inside and out by now.  And then I figured it out - their friends are all Russian or Ukrainian, if they go to parties or anything it's usually at a Russian restaurant with their Russian friends, if they need work done on the house they call a Russian contractor, go to Russian doctors, shop at European stores that have imported Russian foods, etc.  Now, they don't ONLY do this as his mother is also on the organic food bandwagon and prefers to shop at Whole Foods and Trader Joe's - which are grocery stores that specialize in natural and organic food.

I can't say for all the Russians, but my boyfriend's parents don't drink to excess.  I don't think I've ever seen them drunk.  They do keep vodka in the fridge, and they have some other assorted liquors that people have given them for gifts, but they're definitely not drunks.

Not here.  Well, not all of them.  A lot of the women work in retail stores, and at hair salons and stuff like that.  I know a few of Russ's parents' friends are programmers, college professors, and engineers.  The college professors are programming professors and stuff though.   His dad was a sheet metal worker, from the time they lived in Ukraine up until present.  So anything, really.  I don't notice a lot of the men in low-level professions though.  Don't know what's up with that, but it's my observation.

You know it, I know. How many people else do know?
Of course, it's not a big problem but it's a very bad sign, anyway. Look at North Korea, I suppose that i2p won't help them too much :)

In fact, we forgot this phrase "organized crime" for last 5 years. Most of them went to politics and business the other ones were killed.
We call it legalized crime now.

Unbelievable!!!  :shock:

Yea, I have an university degree and I'm an IT-specialist. And you're absolutely right, it's a  very difficult process.
But I'm still not sure wether to choose the USA or not.

I would choose the usa. Or colombia or israel. Lots of russians chose israel already but I still think the usa is still the best choice.  good luck.
