I haven't noticed that particularly as I immediatly press the stop button when I open my web browser before the MSM page loads cause it freezes for a
moment everytime and waistes 20 seconds I could be clicking somewhere else. I could just change my homepage, but it always slips my mind...
Anyhow on a similar note, has anyone else noticed the change in Canada, particularly these past 2 years I guess if I were to put a time limit on it
typing to the beginning of the global recession. I am tying it to that point because that is when different news sources from around the world started
commenting on how well Canada had been handling the meltdown, and oh, apparently it has the strongest economy and banking systems suddenly? The slogan
always tooted 'Canada is the best place to live in the world', but now apparently there was some truth to that?
I love Canada, and I am glad I am Canadian, but we all know how other more elite countries and powers viewed us, and that was basically as the US's
little retarded sibling that couldn't take care of themselves morphing into just an extension of the US with little use. Ofcourse we know how great
our country is, and what it has to offer, but to superpowers we were just the single geek sitting at the summit tables that everyone else was
wondering how we even got there.
So then two years ago Canada, a nation that was suppose to be so dependent on the USA that it couldn't survive without it, stepped forward away from
the US. I am sure Canada didn't somehow transform merely two years ago, but slowly over the years strengthened it's economy, and structure to become
a little more dependent on itself, but that is when I actually took notice to this.
Since then it's weird, and especially these past 6 months-year the feeling in the media, the air, everything is different. It's like we are becoming
American, but not a mirrored image of our neighbours, but our own Canadian version. It's almost like Canada didn't want to be the wimpy timid one
anymore, and took a hit of steroids.
Look at Ottawa, we are just like the rest of the G8 now, and have our own little corrupt government now(it had its corruption before, but it was muted
to us), but something tells me Canada is running with the wrong crowd now behind closed doors and is going to end up getting us in a lot of trouble.
Even the big 'Wikileaks' conspiracy thats going on right now, whosever running it thought Canada was now 'cool enough', so threw a little dirt in
on her so she would be included in the tabloid frenzy staring the G8/20 nations of the world.
It's nice to think Canada has grown, and seems to gaining the respect it deserves, but I have this weird assumtion that she didn't do it all on her
own. The USA was dumped, and for whatever reason that is yet unknown, Canada was spared even though a huge part of it's economy, recession or not, is
still tied to the USA which is currently the biggest disaster/mess of them all from what it once was.
How is that even possible though? All we hear about is how intertwined we are. How we are basically one big nation, and part of the USA. That we are
little America. However, how did we/ do we have the strongest or most sound economy and banking systems throught this recession to date, and the USA
that we whore ourselves out to, has the worst economy? and it all just seemed to happen over night.
I don't even know it this whole post makes sense as I kinda went off on tangents, but there's just something weird going on I am noticing in little
minute changes to anything and everything all over this country, and I feel like I am the only one that is actually noticing it.
Somebody has a plan or use for Canada in the future, and seems to be mentoring her into something...
