While most of that is true, I must address the Biebs. If I remember correctly, one of you invited him there? Be careful what you wish for, eh?


We did? Whoever did that needs an all inclusive to Club Gitmo.

I saw this Michael Moore Documentary on the root of all your fears and understand them fully.



Moore does make documentaries doesn't he?

They come like flies


"like flies" ????
Did you really just say this?

wow


What do you THINK I meant by that? Evidently you were somehow offended by what you THINK I meant. Wow (back at'cha)!

(I still think we need a "Safe Space Forum" for people that get easily offended by something they perceive as something else entirely, but need to go suck their thumb for a few minutes till they can figure it out.)

Got pulled over by a state trooper in North Dakota once, apparently I was driving too slow.

As he was walking up to my car with his hand on his holster, mirrored sunglasses, and chewing on Juicy Fruit gum (I could actually smell it)... and yes, he actually had on the mirrored sunglasses. The guy was a walking cliche !


Anyways, so what's the very first thing he says to me ?

Him: "So, you're from Canada eh ? How aboot that !" "Har har har"

Me: "Yes sir. Just down here doing a little shopping. Did I do something wrong officer ?"


At that point he just ignores my question and continues on with his comedy skit:

Him: "Is that because you Canadians don't have proper shopping malls ?" "Har har har"

Him: "I'll bet all them polar bears makes it hard to get to a store... eh !" "Har har har"

Me: "Mmm hmmm. So was I speeding or something officer ?"

Him: "No, you were going too slow. I guess you Canadians aren't familiar with speed limits up there, eh ?"

Me: "Too slow ?? Oh, my apologies... I guess I keep forgetting that the signs are actually in mph and not kph."


Thinking to myself this guy is a fricken idiot for pulling me over by not driving the set speed limit...?!


Anyways, he continued on for another 5-10 minutes with his stupid Canadian jokes. I just sat there quietly holding my poker face and biting my tongue... all the while thinking how much I'd love to sick my pet moose on him, if I had one.

At the end, he just sent me along my way. Never asking for my license and registration... nothing.

I think the dipstick just wanted an excuse to pull over a Canadian so he could practice his stand-up comedy routine.


That was about 25+ years ago, and I haven't been back since. Not necessarily because of him, of course... but just because I can't be bothered being read the riot act every time I try to cross the border.

Thank the cosmos for online shopping !

He would have been more suited to riding alongside Eric Estrada in "CHiPs".




Told my friends aboot this character when I got home a couple days later... we all had a good laugh.

You got off lucky. The penalty for driving under the speed limit is a beating, a shooting, then they spray the corpse with mace.


After that, it gets rough.

You can never be too sure with corpses. They should probably cuff them as well.

Double taps are for zombies. Not Canadians.

Probably ask anyone in Western Europe what country they would rather visit, Canada or USA. And hands down I can imagine most would say Canada. It's crazy to think that Canada, Britain, New Zealand and Australia are very similar in certain ways, yet USA is on another level of violence and an out of control police. But the most baffling part is that Canada is USA's next door neighbour and yet so different when it comes to these issues.

I didn't like New York much, it was too much like being in London but Texas and Miami were great. I met some really nice people out there.

I grew up here in the US and don't let others lie to you...it has changed. People, with some exception, would walk over your dead body just go get food and water (Katrina). Police now consider themselves as militia, politicians care more about reelection than their current term policies.

There are down home good people that will serve you fried green tomatoes and cornbread and buttermilk. They have the gift of gab and are geniuine lovong caring people.

Chicago had a couple of good mates there but they got run out of town. Avoid Chi-town at all costs.

In California, you could get arrested for bothering a teenager. Bothering...not molesting or have any actual contact.

I am gonna pack up the van and head up to Canada. Sounds safer!

That would explain how you're able to adapt to the cold year round. And your bacon is actually ham.

Canad-ombies.

perhaps you could clarify for me. What exactly did you mean?

Using the term "like flies" while discussing immigration is pretty inflammatory.
Don't you think?

Don't you agree?

So - if I got your sarcasm and/or meaning wrong......
for the sake of other members and guest readers.......
please explain yourself.

Not to disparage Canada as I think there are plenty of interesting cities to visit; Toronto, Vancouver and St. John's being among them, but I just got back from Italy and not one person we talked to about traveling out of Europe mentioned Canada. They all said New York, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Miami and other cities in the United States.

I guess I'm being derogatory when I say people come like flies for my chili? Stop being offended where no offense is needed.

Sorry, was I talking to you?
Meant that question for "queen of swords".......

guess she's not receptive.

Oh well.

(And, btw, I was merely pointing out how "un-PC" her post might be construed in the wrong hands, or wrong mic.)

Do you not get that? Whatever she meant - someone, somewhere can take it, clip it, and run it as a 'quote' - NEGLECTING to offer clarification.'

Sheesh, you people have no sense of "deeper level" thinking, I guess.

Ok. Let her remark sit there, unamended. "That's not what I meant!" she might say.

Some will take it the way I suggested they might (though I myself did not take it that way). And be offended that she called people "flies." And wished them to leave.

She can either clarify "what she meant" or she can decline to do so.
Doesn't much matter to me. Was trying to help her stay out of hot water with the PC censors.
