CapeFearCadaver: Cythraul: CapeFearCadaver: I'm moving to Sweden.

There, it's in writing.

Sweden's on a short list of countries that I would immigrate to.

If I had the money, I'd be there already. I'd be able to ake my job with me and work remotely for my company in Scandinavia, I've got a good number of friends there, and did you feel the damned humdity out this morning?! In October?


Yeah, that humidity is starting to weird me out a bit. I was hoping we'd have a nice cool fall this year, as opposed to last year. We were on a good start, but now.. well, you know.

mrshowrules: Cythraul: I've actually looked into Canada's immigration policies and naturalization requirements. And my reaction was, "yeah, I SO do not meet their standards."

Unless I'm misremembering their 'must have' list.

1) Can you milk a moose?
2) Can you drink 24 beers and still cook one pound of back bacon without burning yourself?
3) Do you love and respect the beaver?
4) Do you find anything Rick Mercer's says to actually be funny?
5) Do you think the Trailer Park boys is actually a documentary?


1) I don't swing that way.
2) In the industry, we call that "working the breakfast shift."
3) Always.
4) I... who?
5) The what now?

wildcardjack: I don't understand the threat to move to Canada. I thought all the conservatives were buying up Costa Rica.


Well, it ranks ahead of the US in quality of healthcare...

Oh, and it's socialized medicine.

Everyone had best check w/ Canada, first.

I suspect the cunning plan is not well thought out.

Yes............for now

To all those who say that they'll move to Canada : Canada does not accept every American Tom, Dick and Harry. What makes you think that Canada will LET YOU move to Canada?

kimwim: If Rmoney wins, I don't think I want to live in a country that could elect such a person. If my grandmother could leave Poland to give her children and grandchildren a better future, I honor her memory by doing the same.

But it's hard to move to Canada. We looked into buying property last year. The only way to do it that we could see was to borrow money from a Canadian bank, and, we had to own property in the US that we had to go back to at the least every 6 months. The Canadian government didn't want us overstaying our welcome. So I don't know how one retires to Canada.


Why wait? Leave now

Karac: "[Actor Stephen] Baldwin has been an outspoken detractor of President Obama and gay marriage - calling the latter 'unconstitutional' and once threatening to move to Canada upon the election of the former."

Actor/musician/celebrity disagrees with republican policies: "Who cares what some hollywood type thinks?"
Actor/musician/celebrity agrees with republican policies: "Lets put him on TV to show that the cool people like us."

To be honest, the only opinion I care about from Stephen Baldwin is what he's going to do to get Jayne Cobb and Firefly back on the air, a plan which would preferably involve Wash coming back to life.


Adam Baldwin is Best Baldwin.

5) Do you think the Trailer Park boys is actually a documentary?

1) No.
2) No.
3) The 'beaver?' Are you being literal? I don't love the animal, but I have a healthy respect for wildlife.
4) Who?
5) Trailer Park what?

The best I can do for you is a 6 month work Visa. Americans always get tripped up by the beaver question. Canadians love and respect the beaver no matter what context the term is being used.

While I do respect the beaver, I can relate much more with Wally. How does that rank me on Canuk-O-Scale?

\Actually already lived in Canada so they'll probably welcome me back with open arms, damn Snow Mexicans and their creepy politeness.


Let me be clear, love and respect the beaver whether rodent, vagina or child character in 1960's television show. When Canadians here "Wally, weren't you a little hard on the Beaver last night?", we don't laugh or make fun of this because we love the beaver even though we understand the obvious double-entdendre. We think "I hope Wally wasn't to stern with his son and also that he was gentle when penetrating his wife during sex."
 
2012-10-03 11:16:03 AM
Face it folks, to your government, you are nothing more than feed animals.
Now get back to work, work hard, and (Ha Ha) get rich.
 
2012-10-03 11:17:08 AM
Right, because we just let anyone in who wants to come on a whim.

You need to earn your right to be here.

What? Don't tell me I got them confused again.
Hmm, according to wikipedia Stephen Baldwin is best known for his role in The Flintstons in Viva Rock Vegas. Let me change my comment: I don't care about his opinions at all.
 
2012-10-03 11:18:25 AM
Canada's immigration policy is pretty steep.

I think you're thinking of Adam Baldwin. He's not one of the "Baldwin brothers".

Stephen Baldwin was not in Firefly, is the point I'm making here.
 
2012-10-03 11:20:05 AM
Maybe all the conservatives can move to Quebec and form their own country. People in Quebec already don't like paying federal taxes so they'll fit right in.

Bhruic: Speaking as a Canadian... Please don't. Anyone who'd move out of their country simply because a different party is in the White House isn't someone we want up here.

Thanks anyway!


No, you don't understand. The guy from the other party who is running things is BLACK.

That makes all the difference in the world.

Is it still tornado season? That's the main thing that freaks me out about the weather shifts here... they're normally in September, but... I was here for the tornado in '89. Strong cold front moving in this weekend after this weird humidity, too.

/anyone else think that golden hue before perilous weather is gorgeous?

TheBlackFlag: Fine, fine....just give us time to put up a fence.

Dont worry, there will be the occasional narrow openings that anyone under 200 pounds can fit through.


Canadians may be the slimmest of the North Americans but that's a pretty low bar... Almost 2/3 of Canadians are overweight, compared to 70% of Americans and 70% of Mexicans. So, yeah, go Canada?
 
2012-10-03 11:21:08 AM
Canada seems like quite a nice place to live, actually. My husband has a job application in at a university in Ontario looking for an American historian, so there's a small chance we could end up moving there, no matter who wins the election. I'm hoping the whole "moving to Canada" bit is easier if there's a company there that already wants you.

Cythraul: starsrift: Cythraul: I've actually looked into Canada's immigration policies and naturalization requirements. And my reaction was, "yeah, I SO do not meet their standards."

Unless I'm misremembering their 'must have' list.

We basically import two kinds of people here. The best, brightest, the wealthiest...(Unfortunately, Bigot Baldwin fits in here), and the poor, the downtrodden, the oppressed.

Regular, average, every-day John Q. Farkup, no immigratey unless you're marrying someone.

What about gay people? Is the U.S. oppressive enough to gay people to accept me? Pwweeeeeaaaase?


You just have to find the right man to marry.

He was also in a direct-to-video film a few years ago called Christmas With a Capital C, where a disgruntled atheist lawyer swoops into a small Christian community and threatens to shut down Christmas because of separation of church and state, and the scrappy God-fearing community bands together to save the holiday in the name of their Lord Jesus Christ.

It's not a comedy.

If you're willing to move because of that why don't you just do it now? What happens at the next election if Obama wins? Just going to threaten it again?

I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career.

Mainly in very in-demand technical fields.

It is until tax time comes and you realize you need to file Canadian and US federal income taxes. And you need to file a separate sheet disclosing all savings and equity you have in Canada. It is a pain in the ass.

please do not. we like to keep as much herp-a-derp south of the border as possible.

My sister's way ahead of the curve. She moved to a southern suburb of Vancouver and commutes across the border every day because she has a telecommuting job that requires her to be physically somewhere in the US. Her hubby got a COO job for a Canadian mining company that has most of its mines in the US and Mexico but they required him to move to Canada and become Canadian. She's getting an absentee ballot for her place in Washington to specifically vote against Hobama Dohbama Slobama and I didn't have the heart to remind her about the electoral college and the fact she might as well be pissing into the wind.

It has its ups and downs, like any other place. Honestly, the differences in terms of quality of life aren't very significant for well educated middle class types.

If there are progressive's in the U.S. who think that moving to Canada is going to bring them to a more progressive, liberal society, I got bad news for them.

this guy

www.nndb.com

quit Kyoto.
Accepts the use of classified information gained through torture.
Drastically increased carbon output.
Tried to roll back gay-marriage.
his party even recently toyed with criminalizing abortion...

yeah, so I'm about as far left as lefties come, and if Obama gets reelected, I'm thinking of moving stateside.

Immigration to Canada should be a graduated process:
- the first year you're here, you have to live in the most northern town in Canada
- every year after that, you're allowed to move slightly South
- by the time your children's children are born, they'll be allowed in the good parts - Vancouver, Toronto (snerk!), etc.
