I visit the Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest when I get a chance, it is guaranteed fun up there, but I could not contemplate giving up my American
citizenship to become a Canadian..no offence, I am a Yankee 'til I die.
Oh, so your IT infrastructure up there is thriving I see. I started out in IT/IS working for a company called American Greetings for the AG.com
division at their HQ back in the early days. I worked there as a Tier 3 Node Engineer.
Lest I digress... Canada is not going through what America is, and I do not know enough about CA's infrastructure to comment further, but you must
realize something, America's current situation was spun from a lot of domestic factors that has cascaded around the globe to all her bedfellows and CA
as beautiful as it is does not hold the Charter that the US does and therefore cannot be put into the same Class of Nations.
I believe you guys up there in Canada have a huge export of timber and lumber which is great, I believe although not sure that is a huge part of your
GDP, but the US use to actually build and create products that we shipped out at a high cost and imported on the low end.
That has all come to an end, and I can tell you even with all your IT experience, if you were to come and live in the US, and you could pick your
locale, you would be hard pressed at finding work in that field. It was unfair to make such a statement to blame Americans for our current plight, and
stories of McDonalds of all companies hiring to help is not cutting the mustard for our "standard of living".
