Made you look!

I'm kidding ATSers. I embrace ATS as an international forum where some policies and traditions are enjoyed across borders while others are "trolled" against. Part of what makes ATS such an excellent site is because we have people from all walks of life, from all regions of the world with all different perspectives that help us to see the diverse sides of controversial and provocative topics.

The borders that separate us are imaginary lines drawn on pieces of papers that become blurred in times of joy and horror as we have all seen. One only has to look back in recent two months of ATS with all that has happened in Japan and can see that while we all come from different nations, at that time, we were united as people of the world concerned over our fellow humans like they were our own family.

I admit at times I have the "us versus them" mentality but I work hard to break that. It is a difficult bias that we are all guilty of.

So in cheesy movie fashion... ATS, can't we all just get along?

SCREW CANADA!!! The last time I tried to cross its border I was damn near arrested and was treated like a terrorist. I guess I had earned the right to be on Canadas no entry list and didnt know it. They dont seem to like known anarchists for some reason. I dont have anything agaist Canadians I just think they should overthrow their piss ant government and sign up with the USA. Hell China would make a fortune making our new flags for us.

Canadia?

You mean America without guns and with a better health care system?

Ain't no hating. I grew up going to Windsor since their drinking age was 19 (and if you looked old enough at 17/18 they didn't card)

I love Canadia.

I had the privilege of launching a Canadian division of a US based company some years ago. During the process we were tasked with initiating an inter-company bulletin board so employees of this service based business could communicate with and support each other. When I told the US leadership that we needed to launch a separate board for the Canadian operations they asked me why and I told them that if we made it cross border, it would immediately devolve into a bunch of negative 'country bashing', mostly from the US side (I am American by the way). They disagreed and mandated that we just allow Canadians to access the US board.

I'm sure by now you can guess what happened....it took about 2 hours for the US participants to start dropping in video clips of "blame Canada' from South Park, asking how we liked living in igloos, eating polar bears, etc. and it just escalated from there.

I got the pleasure of showing the comments on the site to the US EVP the next day and the satisfaction of a solid 'told you so'.

We then quickly launched a Canadian-only portal as I originally suggested.

I'm not saying that only the Americans were being naughty and derisive but it was clearly started by them.
