Air packer, thanks for the last post, good to hear from a passionate Canadien, same for Twin29. I agree with you guys totally.

I think that many Americans are getting a little short tempered about the lack of respect and the lack of greatfulness we are shown here in the USA. How different would the world be if we were not as powerful as we are.........or if we did not exist? How many countries have we defended, liberated, rebuilt, financed and falt bailed out?

Not Canuck bashing, I like Canada and appreciate what you have explained to us about the state of the country and how a few idiots do not represent the whole......just like the morons in teh USA protesting STILL the war....blocking traffic, etc...

Allan4,you are welcome but pleeeeease watch the spelling. "Canadien" is the FRENCH spelling. "Canadian" is the right way thank you.
\Oh,and just to set the record straight,not all French Canadians think the same. There are many who would like to see Johnny Cruton take a long walk in the streets of Baghdad.

It was interesting, I spent a week in Kingston Ont a couple of years back staying on the boat in the Marina, there was a whole dock full of French Canadians, about 10 or 12 boats in all, I found I had more in common with the four couples from northern NY state than all the French Canadians combined. Real nice bunch of people, even invited me to their Alex Bay fun run........kinda sad but nonetheless true.........Shawn(Airpacker): somehow I knew you'd have something to say about this thread!!! .........and for the record I have never voted Liberal in my life and niether has anyone I know...........Doug
And yeah, sometimes when I see the tax on my paycheque I feel like moving and joining you guys in the US, its bull$hit. Shawn is right , the political right in the country is in complete dissarry and cannot get the Liberals out of office

Let us not forget the the Canadians helped us get our hostages out of Iran. We don't want to be accused of having a short memory like France!

Got it.......CanadiAn......HeHeHe......I want nothing to due with defending the French!! Sorry

I played a bit of hockey in Canada and number of years ago, know the National Anthem (BTW I really like that song). I always thought it was cool to have both anthems played before the games. The CanadiAns ( quick learner )were always very freindly and welcomed us with signs and banners and the such. Pretty cool stuff, fun to be recognized whilein the States they could have cared less!! HAHAHAHA......no place like home baby.....God Bless the ole Us o' A.

Cuda,

I agree with you, but they forget things quickly.

One of the 1st to help, and one of the 1st to ditch. They just go both ways! Go figure.

Hey KINGPIN,,

do you think we could duct tape a couple BB guns to the side of band aid 1??
It would be safer and more heavily armed than the infamous Sea Kings!!!
