two words why canada sucks ... snow birds. i lived in florida fourteen years and i could always tell when they arrived. their driving sucks, they are rude, they don't tip at restaurants, some even speak french...screw the french too while I'm thinking about it, when i was in paris they acted like canadians...go figure. doesn't help that a canadian truck driver from a canadian trucking company almost wiped out my family...DO NOT EVER GET HIT BY A CANADIAN TRUCK, it was a nightmare to say the least. of course i hate everyone outside of my family...so don't get offended.

It's no-ones fault that one country gets all the crap. US has Canada, Spain has Portugal, Germany has Poland AND Austria and here in Australia we have the New Zealanders to give hell to. Its just the way it is. All in good fun.

I have been guilty of refering to the United States as America a lot. But when you refer to America, you are refering to the whole continent. North America refers to the States and Canada. So Canada is as much America as the States are.

I like Canadians, they have more in common with Australians. I agree that every country has a neighbour to bitch about, but it goes both ways. One day the United States will will really appreciate having Canada for a neighbour, you never know what the future holds. And anyway, where else would you run when the draft comes in?

Its not the paper money Im ranting about, its the change thats the evil plot! It looks and feels just like american money, and if its worn down in appearance,m u have to closely examine it! Its evil! fooling me into thinking i can buy a diet pop with it!

I cant buy # with it! Whoi should I shoot the pop machine? not its fault it doesnt want Canadian change! its an American Machine! it was american quarters! Its its right to take only American money!

Thats actually a good idea, though about the guns: ever american by law should be forced to dcarry the biggest scariest gun on the planet. We shall all walk around with them in plain sight, whtether were sipping expresso, drving, or taking the kids out for the walk. Well even give the kids guns! Then canadians will come down here and see everyone heavily armed all over the place and they will go back home and stop bringing thier evil change into our circulatiopn, and then next time a shop keeper gives me change i wont have to examine it, ill know, now that all the Canadians have been scared away, that no more canadian change will hit circulation and ill be able to buy my diet pop confident that the money in my pocket is good!

Where are you half breed? please dont tell me ontario or some place like that. please tell me your in communist british columbia! i aint got the gas to drive much further!

Man wat the # is your problem??!?!?!!?....That is jsut ridiculous, how u can be so pissed about getting stuck with a canadian quarter at a vending machine when u wanted a diet cola. You 're probably some fat ass american that's trying to lose weight by buying diet #, and not realizing its jsut as bad. Ur saying how our money is a knock off of yours, but dont realize that the price of our dollar greatly influences the rate of yours. So how is that significant in anyway???....

I say Canadians are being treated like a dog on a leash by the americans in certain aspects, so i dont know wat the problem is???...If anything, canadians whould be pissed at americans and not the other way around.

America hates Canada because America wishes to be like Canada but knows they can't.

The other day I was watching Bowling for Columbine and the Michael Moore brilliantly documented how crime in Canada is practically doesn't exist compared to that of America's crime rate.

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.


Yo, ho, you asked the question, I merely answered it. I didn't even say I subscribed to it. I even have a ball cap with the Canadian flag and the American flag crossing staffs.

However, as far as not going around the world and pissing people off making you not need protection, you might want to ask other nations around the world if that made a difference for them. If you have some starry-eyed notion that appeasement helps, you are wrong. Petting the lion's head will not keep it from eating you, and it wouldn't have worked for the bear, either.
Anyway, now that I have your attention (:roll
I will tell you what I personally have against the Canadians. LEarn to get the Hell out of the left lane unless you are passing another car! Other than that, you seem ok to me.

Colonel, can you ever place your fingers to the keyboard without writing something stupid? Really? Americans want to be Canadians? Michael Moore is brilliant? Bowling for Columbine was another load of propaganda garbage and you are well aware of that as the facts have already been presented to you. As far as you thinking we want to be Canadians, or anybody else, that must be your desire, so why don't you strike a trot? We have too many liars...er...lawyers, in this country anyway. As a matter of fact, take you entire office. As a matter of fact, put a net over most of D.C. and run north as fast as your legs can carry you and the load!

Yeah, TC, isn't it a little soon to be drinking?

And Illmatic, that's BS, crime doesn't exist in Canada???

WTF?!?!?! Where do you think all the terrorists comes to cross borders? Where do you think old criminals go to retire??? We got street gangs problem, bikers killing each others to control the drug market, and the local godfather of the sicilian mob just got arrested.

No crime problem? Yeah right...

BTW, I'm Canadian, and I have absolutly no problem with our neighboor in the south. I have problems with some individuals, not entire nations.

Fall back.

First of all, I didn't say crime doesn't exist in Canada. I said compared to the crime rate in America, Canada is a utopia.

Man, don't try to talk to me about the mafia. I know all about that and I believe it was in America where the Sicilians migrated to create their own syndicate (La Cosa Nostra)

As far as terrorists, terrorists are made in our own lovely country of America. Ever hear of the KKK? The unibomber? The Oklahoma City bombing? They're all American.

... I actually don't know why I came up with that title... oh well...


Anyways... I visit Canada (Toronto, specifically) almost every year. I have relatives up there.

From what I've seen, Canadians are DAMN NICE PEOPLE. I dunno aboout
them French Canadians, cause I've never met one, but I heard they are mean as F**K.

Canadian girls are AWWWWEEESOME as well. They (say) they love American guys, and it looks that way because I've never had a girl here in NY, but once I trotted up there, my cousin's friends LOVED ME! (Must be the Canadian air)

The crime rate is PRETTY MUCH nonexistent, their health-care is EXCEPTIONAL, (especially for the elderly
), they get FREE LOCAL CALLING on their phones (reduced long-distance), and they even have the ETR (Electronic Toll Route) which sorta works like EZ-Pass.

**Here's an explanation of the ETR**

You get a transponder for your vehicle, you put on yer dash (or paste it to your window), and drive. Over the highway (all I know is the 407) they have cameras which catch your license plate and transponder data. It matches up in the ETR place and every month, they send you a bill. It's a LOT less hassling than the tolls here in the NY Metro area.

That is one of the COOL things they got up there.

Also, if the draft EVER HAPPENS... I'm high-tailin' it up there!

But I still love my USA.


[STAY COOL)

Maybe it's because there's a #load more people living in the US than in the Canada, especially compared to the size of the country. So of course more people = more criminals. If you know so much about the mob, you should know that we had a soldier from the bonnano familly of NY, Rizzuto, living right here in Montreal, and he was considered the godfather of Canada. (by police officials anyway) And when speaking of terrorists, I meant foreign ones. We all have our own local terrorists too. They're just called gangsters here.

French canadians are not mean as #. Where did ya heard that? Probably from an english canadian, didn't ya? lol... Stereotypes & generalisations are killing this world...

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(this is great!), THAT WE HAVE BEEN SCREWED OUT OF A QUARTER OR DIME!!!!!!!

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




DeltaChaos Great Post of the Day!

I love Canadian coins.

I can slip a Canadian quarter in with the American quarter and the sales clerk won't tell the difference. I walk away with a free bag of chips.

Canadian coinage actually have pretty unique and useful qualities...

If you crush the edge with some other hard object, it makes an exceptional field expedient paint remover. Yeah.

And it also makes a very distinctive sound as it bounces off someones skull at very high velocity... Much more distinct than American coinage. Ah, the tone...

Canadian coins are more safe than their American originals... The lack of ridges on the edges makes them much easier to remove from the occasional stupid child's throat. Or easier to swallow anyway.

Personally, I liked to put the coins in my mouth and drag them across my fillings. No exquisite pain like the Canadian coin on the fillings. You just can't get that kind of pain from an American coin.... I think, what, the Canadians make theirs out of... tin? Right?
