American idiots

I remember the original story on this farmer, right after 911. Back when Canadians were flying the Stars & Stripes. Right after Ganderonians were boarding stranded US passengers, and a tour bus driver drove New Jersey seniors home, all the way from BC. Back when we all felt like New Yorkers.

The US government started protecting it's northern border. After all our socialist country was full of terrorist cells. We were even originally blamed for letting the 911 terrorists into their country.

These American assholes invaded the small towns in New Brunswick & Quebec that straddled the border and started laying down ridiculous restrictions, rules and bull shit. One poor French Canadian moose hunter ended up being held in Bangor, Maine for months because he filled his gas tank a few yards down the road with cheaper US gas.

And this old guy Nikolai Pedersen stopped getting his mail because the US border guard's decided that Canada Post couldn't cross the border anymore. The road leading to his farm ran from Canada to the US and back to Canada where his house is located.

Apparently things got back to normal, then his daughter went to visit him. She ran into a road block and told she could no longer use the road.

U.S. border cuts off Canadian war vet from his N.B. home

But don't worry this is joint operation (pun intended) by Canada & the US according to the RCMP interviewed in the CBC report.

"RCMP Sgt. Derek Strong said this week's roadblock is a short-term joint Canada-U.S. anti-smuggling operation and isn't targeting the Pedersen family. Their home is the only Canadian property on the road."

Oops they might not be working that closely together.

"But a U.S. border protection official told CBC News that the crackdown is the beginning of a long-term "enhanced" security effort on the border."

American idiots.

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.


That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …
