Not waiving but drowning

Recently I applied to enter the United States under the Visa Waiver Programme. This requires completion of an online form with some sensible questions about "communicable diseases", criminal convictions and so forth, to which the "right" answer is no. Then there was this one:

Are you seeking entry to engage in criminal or immoral activities?

I wonder if any immoral person has answered yes, and if so whether his honesty made up for his planned moral turpitude. For criminals, the correct answer to the question is, obviously, "That's for me to know and you to find out."

When I visited the U.K., I was not asked if I would engage in immoral activities, nor would I have pledged not to.  Immoral by whose standards?

This U.S. policy is an outrage.  There should be no limit on the number of British women intending to engage in immoral activities allowed entry to our shores.

They're letting her in? There goes the neighbo(u)rhood.

There was no space on the form for "mission civilisatrice". And I'm not sure if the English disease is communicable.

Bit of an improvement from many years ago when they wanted to know if you were homosexual or a communist.
