Why America needs Canada


Why America needs Canada


Are you American?  Want to travel the world?  Want to avoid nasty political discussions?  Get the “Go Canadian” package and pretend you are the kind of people the whole world loves.  America needs a people group that it can pretend to be.  I don’t think the kit will totally prepare you. 

To pass the ultimate Canadian test you will have to identify the most hated American by Canadians.  It’s not Bush, or Limbaugh, or Jerry Falwell.  It isn’t anyone in the Bush adminstration, a commentor on Fox news, or some olympic athlete that beat a Canadian.    It isn’t anyone most Americans have heard of.  It is Gary Bettman!

    America needs Canada for our natural resources. What if we took that oil (38% of US’s consumption) and shipped it to China? Can you say 5$ a gallon? Or Natural gas. I think we supply 90% of that…

    Bettman sucks. The day the hockey died = the day Bettman took over the NHL.

    I haven’t used it in practice, but I’d just tell people I was from Texas… I’ve always had more of an identity as a Texan than a “United-statsian…” “United Stateophant…” “United Statesman” whatever people from the U.S. are called…

    LT, it’s good to know your heart and your priorities are in the right place. When does the move to arrest and indict Bettman begin?

    Dwight, just call me an A-mur-i-can. ;)
