+ - Increasing Truthiness of the US Govt.-> 1

Submitted by a-highly-skilled-legal-immigrant
a-highly-skilled-legal-immigrant writes: Truthiness, the act of making decisions "from the gut" without regard to logic, evidence or fact, has been one of the hallmark of current Bush administration.

A recent example of how screwed up the US government machinery is, can be gauged by the fact that just 13 days after they announced the current status of processing I-485, they come out with a bulletin that says that all applications are stopped and none will be accepted.
Further, ImmigrationVoice reports

One estimate puts the expenses by applicants over the last two weeks at over $6,000 million in filing fees, medical examination expenses, incidental expenses such as travel, photocopying, phone calls, courier, etc., not including the 2-3 days of preparation time expended by each family as well as lost productivity experienced by applicants' businesses due to absence from work.
