If this happens, I want to be Bürgermeister of Cleveland.

I would, but write in votes are illegal in this state.

Vote for Canada? Or even for the two Canadian comedians in TFA?

Nope, I'm going to go with homegrown American comedians. I'm seriously considering instituting a tradition of always writing in Stewart/Colbert for all elected offices. Everything from President down to dogcatcher.

For general elections or just primaries? I don't see how that could possibly be legal for non private party elections.

Naah, our PM is a bizarre, sweater-vest wearing, geek/white trash hybrid who wants to take medical marijuana away from MS patients. If he was in power ten years ago he'd have had us in Iraq as well. He thinks the Chimp was a visionary to be admired.

Actually, no. Victoria BC dumps all its raw sewage right into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. That would be a nasty habit to emulate.

Yeah, too bad our current ruling party took the American Neo-Con playbook and ideals and just just farking ran with both. And since Harper is actually quite smart, unlike many/most of his American colleagues, it's quite terrifying at times.

You do realize that Molson is owned by Budweiser (Anheuser-Busch), right? Besides, Molson is pretty much pisswater already.

No, thats wrong. Molson is conjoined with Coors.

Anheuser-Busch and Labatt are both part of the Belgian multinational InBev.

All of the above are, however, pisswater. Nothing is funnier than a Canadian mocking the quality of American beer while extolling Molson or Labatt.

Both Canada and the USA make excellent beers, but not from the macro brewers.

I stand corrected. About which company owns Molson, not about Molson being anything other than pisswater. You can add Labatt in that category as well.

That waste water is filtered so larger items (ie: things that aren't biological) are removed and then it's dumped into the ocean. It's been proven time and time again that this isn't necessarily a bad thing, the ocean is pretty good at disposing natural waste.

FTA:
"A 2008 op-ed by eight B.C. ocean scientists concurred. "It makes no sense to replace a natural ecosystem service with a human creation that is energy inefficient and has other harmful environmental consequences," it read. That same year, six former B.C. medical health officers also rose up in opposition to a treatment regime. "The proposed additional treatment will not result in any improvement for public health and may in fact have a negative impact," it read."

Wait, which Canada?

Do you mean the latte-sipping, snooty douche tards from the Epicentre of the Universe who champion an excessive amount of deplorably bad hockey?

Or the gun-toting, cattle rustling faux-Texan Oilbertan fundies and rednecks with a PM who strangles kittens and has poor tastes in sweaters?

Or the fish-smelling, unemployed bunkwater riff raff Goin' Down the Road who sound like they're trying to spit, sing and gargle at the same time?

Or howabout the farking treasonous frogs? (yah, fark those guys)

Or the hoity-toity, orca-watching enviro-wackos who shiat grass stains and Olympics logos and insist on trashing their city after Stanley Cup defeats?

Or the wheat-chewing dumb shiat Riders fans who invade other cities during CFL season?

There's almost as many types of Canada as there is in America. Pick one.

Ah the ol' Sekrit Agenduh! A classic from way back. Hell who knows how radically different things would be if he had control of both the Commons and Senate..

Oh wait he does...

And yet nothing has changed...

Maybe, just maybe he's smart enough not to attack things like universal healthcare after all and you're being just a bit paranoid?

Where have you been? He's been all about privatizing healthcare for years now. No conspiracy. It's all in the open. If you're paying attention.

Seriously?

We've lost all respect abroad, our foreign policy is in the toilet, we're absolute pariahs when it comes to environmental issues, we have no idea what the government's really doing because they won't talk to anybody and they just keep wasting billions like good fiscal conservatives.

okey dokey...

PM Sweatervest has been recently named Statesman of the year Link by a group that has also given the award to... , "Among the foundation's previous "world statesman of the year" recipients were Chretien in 2002, Australian prime minister John Howard in 2005, France's Nicolas Sarkozy in 2008 and South Korean President Lee Myung-bak in 2011. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, former Brazilian president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Czech Vaclav Havel, former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher have also been recognized."

I can't find the article right now but there was one about a week ago praising the Canadian government on making gay and womens rights a priority. And no this wasn't a press release from the Harper Government.

Canada is 20% ahead of it's target to reduce emissions by 2025 (I think it was the Copenhagen agreement or something like that), our economy is doing a hell of a lot better than the rest of the G8's are, and hey I haven't noticed less info than previous governments.

/Good enough rebuttal?

Uh, yeaaaahhh, about that organization. They're a Jewish group who gave him the award for his unfailing support of Israel and his condemnation of Iran. Harper's Democracy Award a Sad Joke on Canadians

Canada is 20% ahead of it's target to reduce emissions by 2025 (I think it was the Copenhagen agreement or something like that)

Due to action by the provincial governments, consumers and some tricky calculations by the feds. They haven't done anything themselves, just ridden the wave and spun the numbers. "Canada's environmental performance is, by most measures, the worst in the developed world. We've got big problems.":Stephen Harper. Meanwhile they're trying to weaken existing environmental protections through Bill C-38

our economy is doing a hell of a lot better than the rest of the G8's are

But a hell of a lot worse than a lot of Third World countries.

and hey I haven't noticed less info than previous governments.

You don't work in research or the census bureau then, I guess.

Really? Write-ins may be disallowed for primaries, but so far as I know, the only restrictions that exist in some states for general elections are that some jurisdictions require all write-in candidates to be registered candidates before the election.

Anyway, Canada is not a natural-born citizen of the U.S., and so is ineligible anyway, short of an especially broad Schwartzeneggar amendment.
