The username includes the word "bum" which pretty much sums up this member's ability to use this messageboard...

I strongly recommend you just jump on a plane and come. Loads of jobs, especially in Florida, you'll find one within a day or two. Everyone is good-looking, the streets are paved with gold, and the immigration officers at Orlando airport give a Green Card to every 20th customer.

I came by marrying an American, other most common way is by being sponsered by an employer, which looking at your qualifications isn't too likely either - guess you better hit the US chat rooms.
