    OT; A Canadian's frustration

    Looks like it's the same everywhere.......

    From another board;

    I Am Canadian!

    I am a minority in Vancouver, Banff, and every casino in this county

    I was born in 1972, yet I am responsible for some Native's great great grandfather who screwed himself out of his land in the 1800's.

    I pay import tax on cars made in Ontario.

    I am allowed to skydive and smoke, but not allowed to drive without a seat belt.

    All the money I make up until mid July must go to paying taxes.

    I live and work among people who believe Americans are ignorant. These same people cannot name this country's new Territory.

    Although I am sometimes forced to live on Kraft Dinner, and don't have a pot to #### in, I sleep well, knowing that I've helped purchase a nice six figure home in Vancouver for some unskilled Chinese refugee.

    Although they are unpatriotic and constantly try to separate, Quebec still provides my nation's Prime Ministers.

    95 percent of my nation's international conflicts are over fish.

    I'm supposed to call black people African Canadians. Although I'm sure none of them have ever been to Africa, or east of Halifax for that matter.

    I believe that paying a 200 percent tax on alcohol is fair.

    Even if I have no idea what happened to that old rifle my grandfather gave me when I was 14, I will be considered a criminal if I don't register it.

    I DO know Jeff from Toronto.

    I often badmouth the United States, and then vacation there three times a year.

    I'm led to believe that some lazy ### unionized broom pusher who makes 30 dollars an hour is underpaid and therefore must go on strike, but paying 10 dollars an hour to someone who works 12 hour shifts at 40 below on an oil rig is fair.

    I believe that paying 30 million for 3 stripes (The Voice of Fire) by the National Art Gallery was a good purchase, even though 99 percent of this country didn't want it. Or will ever see it.

    When I look at my pay stub and realize that I take home a third of what I actually make. I say "Oh well, at least we have better health care than the Americans".

    I must bail out farmers when their crops are too wet or too dry, because I control the rain.

    My National Anthem has versions in both official languages. And I don't know either of them.

    Canada is the highest taxed nation in North America, the biggest military buffer for the United States, and the number one destination for fleeing boat people.

    I am not an angry white male.

    I am an angry broke taxpayer.

    My name is Bob, and I AM CANADIAN.

    My wife and I just visited Canada and thought it was a wonderful country. I'm sure all things aren't perfect there as we have alot of BS here(USA). But we are all free and can pickup and move if we want to. If I had to leave the US, Canada would be the first place I would consider relocating to. Then I would sober up and head for the Caribbean. Like we say in America, If you don't love if leave it. You have the choice.
