My main problem: You boo our national anthem at hockey games. Where would hockey be without every American team?

Possible Reasons Americans dont like canada:

1. canadians dont like us, and are hideously vocal about it.
2. Canada offered Saddam Hussein assylum, were he to ask for it. Some neighbors.
3. Canada let the Russiand use thier airspace to spy on us during the cold war. Some neighbors.
4. Canadians bitch about everything America does. Even the stuff that really isnt that unusual or odd, or extremely wicked, no matter what we do, they bitch and moan, only 1/4 of the time does the bitching and moaning have good sound reason buried in it, the rest is just babble.
5. Canadians habor alot of terrorists giving free and open assylum to all manner of scumbags.

So, canadians bitch and moan about us all the time, so, well, we do the same. i dont see what the problem is. Why would Canada care if Americans bitch about them. They bitch about us, we bitch back.

I hardly see the real signifigance here.

Good. This was what I was talking about.

First Thomas, I don't recall our government or the people asking for any protection from America. We don't need it. We don't wander around the world pissing people off. You don't like Canadians spreading the socialistic views, everyone has views, don't agree with yours, oh yes, I forgot who I was talking to here. We didn't coin the phrase "ugly American", seems like some other people were spreading views outside of their borders. BUT it would be foolish to assume that most people are like they are percieved in this manner. I don't think all Amer. are like this. I don't think most Amer. are like this. But if you want to use this paintbush just realize that you've got a coat on you as well.

Booing the national anthem is just wrong, no two ways about that.

1- I don't think so. Maybe you are only concentrating on the negative.
2- You can't be serious. I would need to see some proof on that one.
3-See 2.
4-I think you have another misconception. The Iraq war, yes, everything, please. And don't confuse us for the morons in Ottawa.
5-I gotta give you that one.

As for lax security at the borders,ask yourself who created
the terrorists in the first place.U.S. policy.I have no love for
any terrorists ,but american govt. created and built up Bin Laden and Hussein.So dont blame Canada for your
problems.

Does your national pride keep you from answering this question? I thought it was your game.

For me, it's gotta be their beady little eyes and their flappin' heads... You know they're not even a real country anyway?

Now that I think about it, I have one problem with Canada. Ya'll aren't imperialistic. Can't you at least roll over a small Caribbean island in a blaze of hegemonistic glory? I'd be happy to be a colonist. Yukon = burr.


They pretty much already own Cuba. All the resorts and hotels are Canadian. Go to Canada for your Cuban cigars.

Why do we hate Canadia?

Simple. One reason.

BECAUSE WE CAN.

It gets really tiring, ya know, looking like badasses 24/7. We've got to PROVE that Iraq has bigass bombs, we can't hate France until they DEFY us, I mean, it gets tough. THose CIA guys in the White House, you know them, their only real job is nothing more than to find reasons why we hate everyone, why they hate us, and then some porposed reason to make it better.

REASON. It's hard to find my friends.

But when we will just blindly hate Canada for NO REASON WHATSOEVER, it's like a bigass standing ovation for the government. They're at home thinking,"Hell yeah! We didn't have to do SH*T This time! Sweet!"

That's it. That's why we hate em.

We're trying to boost our government's self esteem, make it look easy.

Hey, U asked, intrepid.

You wanted to know why we rag on canada. I told you why.


I simply am tellign you from ym own experience with canadians. They do Hate Americans. So, well, well hate them back. why the hell not?

I hardly blame canada for our problems. I have plenty of other more deserving recipients of the blame. I simply find myself irritated by the incessant insults and whining of canadians an unnecessary rudeness at our sporting events. We already have enough problems in the world and within our wn borders. I also hate mexico, because they are sorry ass neighbors too.

When Canadians cross the border to get cheap gas while bitching about how fat and stupid Americans are, that REALLY pisses me off.

Skadi, I did ask and want to know. I just find it hard to believe that our countrymen would act like that. Maybe I live in isolation but the people I associate with aren't like that. If they were I would tell them to stfu.

Oh, and dont get me started on your money.

#ing stupid Canadian money! Nothing pisses me off worse, when i feel in my pocket, and im down to 60 cents, and think, #, im thirsty, i want a diet coke. So, i go to the machine, pop in the quarters, but one keeps coming back out. and in my frustration, after trying depsertaly to get that qurter in, i discover:

ITS A #ING CANADIAN QUARTER!

Its a conspiracy! Goddamn canucks with thier useless money copied to look like ours for the sole purpose of fooling us into thinking its ours, and when we get change and try to buy something, we find out we have useless canadian change, and it doesnt work, and u cant trade it in for american money, so your stuck with that #ing Canadian quarter, and no pop, its enough to make me wanna drive north and #ing kick the # out of the first Canuck i find!

YOU DO THIS # ON PURPOSE! YOUR UNDERMINING OUR SANITY AND ECONOMY WITH YOUR GODDAMN COPYCAT MONEY! WHY CANT YOU COPY THE #ING BRIT MONEY SO WE CAN IDENTIFYY EASIER AS FOREIGN! SO WE DONT END UP ACCIDENTALLY ACCEPTING A LOOK ALIKE PIECE OF CHANGE, AND FIND OUT TOO LATE, WHEN WERE THIRSTY AND SAD, THAT WE HAVE BEEN SCREWED OUT OF A QUARTER OR DIME!!!!!!!

#ING CANADIANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

well i'm a born canadian citizen living in toronto, and I have many grievances with my country!?!

1. political correctness
2. our government has laxed security, we allowed a known terrorist back into Canada, and gave him back his passport. The guy admitted to attending an al-qaida training camp in afghanistan, now he lives in Toronto's east end( luckily i live in the west end)
3. quebec seperatists, let 'em go. see how well quebec can do without help from the rest of the country.
4. how the government spends the tax dollars, for those who follow Canadian politics hmm $300 million in sponsorship ads for quebec companies, b/c they kiss the liberal parties ass.
and the list goes on.......

but some things i think are good about Canada
1. CPP
2. health care
