They honestly think Canada will just let their hootin', hollerin' asses in. Without any Canadian work authorization. Without official papers.

I guess fleeing north across the border is OK when you do it, crybabies.

This right here is exactly why so many of us here in the Great White North think Americans are crazy. Sure, some of those people are joking - but some of them aren't, and that made me laugh so hard I was crying.

People raise the "I'm moving to Canada!" cry whenever they feel like their whole way of life is about to disintegrate for some imagined reason or other. Then they realize actually moving to Canada would require changing their whole way of life, and that's the last we hear about it.

An 11 page health law that refers to a real single payer system versus 2000+ pages of corporate welfare and numerous loopholes written by the very same industry that is trying to enrich itself by having 300+ million captive consumers? I'd move to Canada if I could.

Just wait until they're given this to eat.

I've considered moving to Canada, but then I remembered that none of their hockey teams have won the Stanley Cup anywhere near as recently as mine did, so I think I'll stay in Florida for now.

They can always go illegally and hang outside hardware store hoping to get hired as a day laborer shoveling snow.

Yeah. Old people, reactionaries and racists used to baking in the heat 9 months out of the year will willingly pull stumps for Toronto or Vancouver or Montreal (HA!) or Winnipeg.

Sure, the small-town feel of Winnipeg might be nice if you could survive the walk from your door to the car/bus stop at 23 below in October.

// also, you sure you wanna trade Coors & Miller for Labatt?

Here's a better idea, guys. Move to Arizona, Texas and/or the Carolinas and GET THEM TO SECEDE.

If only it was possible to charge the people who post this kind of whiny crap with sedition and force them to carry through on their threat.

But no, we live in a nation that is all too forgiving childish assholes and saving them from their own petulance.

Isn't Canada seen as socialist to American society? It sounds counter-productive.
 
2012-06-28 02:09:47 PM  
Moving to Canada isn't all that easy. You basically need to have family there and/or a job already lined up, or have valuable education or technical skills. They aren't going to roll out the red carpet for you just because you're an American.

Coors, Miller, Labatt and Molson are all owned by a European conglomarate. If you want real Canadian beer is is Moosehead and it sucks.

There's many reason to move to Canada but moving to get away from pseudo-socialized medicine is not one of them.

With regards to the mandate, the individual responsibility program which I proposed, I was very pleased to see that the compromise from the two houses includes the personal responsibility principle, that is essential for bringing health care costs down for everyone, and for getting everybody the health insurance they deserve and need. So I was very pleased with that development. -Mitt Romney

"Julian, I'm tellin ya' you need to take cover. Those Yankee sh*t idiots are on their way and it's gonna be a baseball and apple pie sh*t storm up here before you can even count to sh*t thirty".

"Jim, you're too drunk for any of this. Go home and just chill out, okay. The park isn't under attack and the retards who want to move to Canada probably won't be let in anyway. You're gonna get hurt if you keep this up".

"Do you know how the Nazis nearly conquered Europe, Julian? A bunch of lazy sh*t smears decided that the Nazis probably wouldn't far, but those brown shirt sh*t stains sure proved them wrong".

"Jim, what the f*ck are you talking about?"


I'd like to hear Greasy Phil Collins aka The Mustard Tiger's point of view.

I'm not specifically familiar with Canadian immigration laws, but I suspect that most of these people would have nowhere near the required qualifications to emigrate.

Given you've used two apostrophes correctly there, I suspect you're a considerably more attractive immigrant prospect that those folks.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: Why not Mexico?


Seriously. I really don't understand why conservatives are so anti-Mexico. Over 90% of the population is Catholic or Protestant, gay marriage is illegal there, abortion is extremely restricted, and gun laws for citizens are largely unenforced (one can even buy guns from cops).

...but they DO have socialized health care. Darn.

Thirded. In college, my tradition for the MLB All-Star Game was to get a big bag of Doritos 3Ds (jalapeno flavor) and a sixer of Labatt.

However, for the purposes of my joke, a redneck would only surrender a Coors if moonshine was available.
