That's the best part....the Americans went to war to be rid of the British...only to transcend and surpass their dying empire with loans in blood and treasure.

Canada be like, "WTF just happened ? "

Canada be like? Are you fucking trying to imitate ghetto speak, you sad old man?
Canada has always been perfectly content to be a well-run, orderly country without shootouts in the streets. We have never aspired to be a world wide target for terrorism or to change the world to suit our corporations.  Because none of that was seen as benefiting our people.

It's really kinda hard to see how it benefits yours either.

And, as you know, the "if it bleeds it leads"  media view of America is vastly overwrought clickbait, when you actually live in America, its quite tranquil and Americans are way more friendly than passive aggressive pathologically insecure Victorian Canadians.

And yet our boy scouts don't get chased down the street by shotgun wielding "secure and friendly' Americans when they knock on their door.

I'm not sure how anything you've said in any way counters my point. Your country is only 'great' because of the weather.

Puff out your chest and get a big boner over that one if that's all ya got.

 

OK....but even the boner would be bigger.     Mexico has much warmer weather, but has not enjoyed the same success.     Hell, much of the U.S. southwest (including) California was once part of Mexico (this is a big hint why Canada has lagged behind).

So there has to be more to it than just "weather".

No, but "aboriginals" sure do.

I'm trying to save Ontario from Canada, we have the GDP to be our own country, but we would be much richer without Canada dragging us down into a socialist mire.

What's this 'we', white man? According to you your grandfather moved to the states and you've never been back.

Different issue entirely....don't confuse historical accuracy with repetition.    How many times do I have to read that "Trump is a <fill in the blank>" ?

Trump is an asshole. And as long as the topic is related to the US that's fine. Bringing it up in unrelated subjects, which I'll grant you, occasionally happens, pisses me off too.

My father came back, I was born in Vancouver, my father went to Berkley in the 60's, became a lefty, and then stormed out of America in protest of Vietnam.

Sorry....did I get too "black" for you ?    I know how much blacks irk you based on previous posts about U.S. crime stats (because Canada has none).

Wrong...see "mining", "oil services", and corps like SNC- Lavalin.   Canadians scrambled like cockroaches to escape from Libya in 2011.

That's swell, but by your own admission it certainly happens.  So why pick on specific members ?

..and it is not occasionally.

Mexico was colonized by Spain. Which was more than a slightly fucked up place at the time. The US was colonized by the British. And Mexico's weather ain't all that great. The US has the middle zone. Mexico is tooo warm. Canada is tooo cold. Most of the US is just right. Plus you've got three times as much land.

Blacks don't irk me. Criminals irk me. Too many fuckups in a given group, regardless of skin tone or religion, do indeed draw my disapproval towards that group. And there are a lot of whiny fuckups among Black Americans.

Yeah, but the difference is we never sent in the military because the locals were being meant to our banana plantation owners.

Oh great...now we have the Goldilocks perspective on why Canada has lagged behind.     At least Canada has bears in many sizes.

The U.S. was colonized by the British, French, and Spanish.

I'm not picking on anyone. I'm bitching and whining - which is what most discussion groups are for. In this case it's about these two nitwits drooling all over subjects and topics with off-topic derails and making it impossible to hold intelligent discussions.

Which, come to think of it, is something you tend to do now and then too. Which is why you're on my ignore list.

Which none of the NATO countries purchased in sufficient quantities, to include even the British and French, and America had to start providing the bombs straight from the American stockpile.

Yeahhh, but the British took over and ran the place. Which is why it doesn't have peons and land owners the way Mexico still has.

The point remains if the US and Canada switched geographical places your population would be a tenth what it is and Canada's would be ten times greater. Be interesting to look back and wonder how that might have changed the world...

We kicked the British out, and chased the loyalists to Canada....the very same points being made by other members.

Only then did America began the climb to undisputed heavyweight champion.   Canada didn't.

I doubt it....Canada did/does not have the will to do so.    It is a follower...not a leader.

One does not have to be an American citizen, to defend and uphold the Leader of the Free World, I was reporting up the chain of command to the American Commander-in-Chief, the moment I joined the army, Canada has no military plans outside of CDSA and NATO, so all Canadian Forces report to President Trump, either by way of NORTHCOM, or SACEUR

Untrue. Your faith in the moderation in this place is misguided, they selectively stretch the rules and enforce against any boatrockers whose opinions annoy the main clique in this place.
