Wishful thinking. It's pretty laughable actually, because god knows America is Canada's only hope if there's ever an attack on Canada. People said the same thing about the destruction of America during the Raegan years.

Our border policies here in America are awful, but both parties are scared to adress it, because they fear losing the ever-growing Latino vote. Partisanship is taking priority over safety, and it's pathetic. The real answer is a responsible guest worker system where we can keep tabs on all aliens, but sadly it will take another 9/11 to force the parties into that. Be that as it may, we'd still like Canada to work on upgrading their immigration system too. I sense a lot of anger in you, young one.

Nice threat, Bizzle. Way to keep this civil. (Hey! I made a sorta-poem! I'm so creative!)

That being said, I have to agree with Michrome here... immigration is pretty fucked up in BOTH countries. Unfortunately, the fact remains, that if someone's determined to make it in to do some damage, with enough money and preparation they WILL do it, no matter what precautions we take.

OK I give up. YOU were the one that jumped on my shit after I posted a tongue in cheek rant on someone's description of "Cowboy Bebop" as 'Film Noir'. So this time I deliberately put that stupid little smiley face so EVERYONE could see the joke, even the ultra sensitive lefties. Ah nuts. I just can't catch a break. But yeh, you can indeed rhyme. You should battle John Cena. Word Life!

NOBODY should EVER be defending Canada's immigration laws and border security. They are absolutely terrible, and anyone who says otherwise is out to lunch.

However, I don't think it's fair to blame Canada for terrorists entering the US. You guys know our immigration and refugee screening is a joke, so maybe the border should be defended a little better. We're not responsible for who enters the US.

Gah! I knew I was leaving something out when I posted that damn message... my OWN smiley. Argh! A million, zillion apologies. /:

And yes, I would go after Cena... however, as I'm so white as to make Snow, Vanilla Ice, Cena and Fred Durst look like the Four Tops... I think I'll just call it a woulda-coulda and save the world the frustration of dealing with another suburban white boy rappin'. (:

Hehe. Not angry, just irritated by all this "those dayum Canucks are lettin' them darn terrorists across their stinkin' border into my country!" bullshit that goes around. I could understand if the U.S. immigration service was any more competent.....but it's not. Unfortunately.

Who wants to start a pool on how long it takes for proletarian to get the boot, or just leave?

Honestly, this is why I don't come on the board much - I'm really rather embarassed by every argument, from both sides. Everybody comes out of this arguments looking like ignorant hate mongers who are disgusted by other countries not like their own.

proletarian: It's pretty obvious you have a huge bias against America, and you need to chill out. I can understand you aren't happy with some people on this board (and maybe some in your personal life) saying Americans accuse Canada of letting the terrorists in, but that doesn't really validate the hateful comments you make. So you might want to just take a break for a little bit.

America's fuck ups allowed 9/11 to happen, yes. But to say that it was their fault completely is a little shady. I'll be the last to say something POSITIVE about what "my" country is doing right now, but I'm gonna go out on a limb and say we might want to blame terrorists flying planes into buildings for a little bit of the carnage

Everybody else: I've been questioning my country's actions for a long time now, and to see some of the attitudes of "proud americans" on this board is pretty disheartening. Saying things like "Canada would be fucked if we didn't protect you" and things like that just add to the general consensus many people have about America - "We're stronger than any country, so kiss our ass". It's these kinds of nationalist views that make Americans look so cocky (and in turn, easy to hate by people like proletarian).

Nobody is going to agree with me on many things, I realize this. But the one thing that I truly believe is that excessive pride in one's country is more of a curse than a blessing. The more we wave our flags in each other's face, the farther away we are from understanding each other as human beings.

You never hear the term "human beings" anymore, don't you? Mostly we just hear "Canadians", "Iraqis", or "Americans", etc. We need to chill out with all this "MY COUNTRY RULEZ" stuff and start looking at each other as people who, I would like to assume, WANT to work everything out.

Sorry for the long rant. It probably doesn't fit right here but I had to get it off my chest. Thanks.

So I'm a hatemonger now because I don't like having my country take the fall for terrorism in America?

That's quite a leap.

And no, I don't hate America, or Americans. But I am not too keen on hypocrisy, and that is something that is never in short supply when it comes to politics, and America is no exception to this. I am merely here to express my opinions, and if some of you can't handle that then you're on the wrong board.

Freeway, you're totally overgeneralizing the voting population in Canada. I'm certain my parents would be rather annoyed being called French-Canadian or Ontarians when they're not, nor are a HELL of a lot of people that vote for the Liberals. There WAS a reason as to why those Reform ads quite a few years back were pulled from TV saying "Don't vote for FRENCH PEOPLE!"

And I firmly believe Canada has one of the greatest militaries in the world. Why? Because they're peacekeepers, and not conquerers like some other country just south of Canada that I hear a lot about...

I think the States should really stop shitting on Canada for THEIR internal affairs. If a REAL war starts, Canada will back you all the way. When you run out of water, Canada will supply you. But if you keep this up... expect water prices to get really high really fast...

Hey, I completely agree with Grimis on this. Worldwide- water is going to be the single limiting factor. Hell, Texas is already tapping saline water.
