Hopefully canada starts putting their military at the border and starts gunning down all those illegal americans.

Honestly, I feel bad for Canadians for having us as neighbors.

I keep telling you guys, it's all about the milk.

Mexico even paid for our Great Northern Wall, but now the morans in 'Murica have been digging under it to get that sweet, sweet Canadian specialty milk (it comes from coal! you have to wash it first!)

As a Canadian, even one living abroad at the moment, I'll say this: sure, we'd love to open the border to the US. All we require is every Republican removed from office, and you getting some control over the COVID-19 infestation in your country. Then we'll be happy to talk.

My ex-MIL was as Canadian as a human could get, even after being here in the states for more than fifty years. I think the one thing she couldn't get a handle on was the American pronunciation of common words. I swear, if you asked what she's been up to her reply was always, "Nuthin' so much, just nukin' aboot in da hoose."

I didn't like her too awful much but she could make a very tasty pork roast . . . and that stuff you make by pouring flour, milk, and eggs into the pork fat. Yorkshire Pudding? Being a Yankee I was unfamiliar with that particular dish, but I did enjoy it.

So here I've been on lockdown since March, just nukin' aboot in da hoose, thinkin' about our brothers to the north.

If the fascists lose, they riot. If they win, they purge. Either way the RWNJ's are gonna lose their shiat in 8 1/2 weeks. It'll be a miracle if we make it to Thanksgiving without a war.

I don't think either of you are far off with the predictions for the nation.

I do think that's all the more reason to deny americans. Can't let them export the mess they made. Send a message to every nation that maybe next time someone should do something about their right wing nut jobs before it becomes a full nazi infestation.

If anyone should be building a border wall, it should be Canada, to keep US out.

It seems hardly fair to blame Canada for the quite improper pronounciation of words in the US of A, as the record clearly states your country's malignancy towards the English language has extended to deliberately misspelling English words incorrectly and then labelling it "correct". If there is any subject upon which an American could be reliably trusted to speak correctly on, the use of language would be furthest from it.

Edopode: Hopefully canada starts putting their military at the border and starts gunning down all those illegal americans.


You joke, but given the number of stories I've read about entitled American tourists sneaking in, yeah our military really sort of should be patrolling those areas and intercepting and escorting transgressors back across at gunpoint. Politely, of course.

I'm sure your government will understand a respect for law and the need for southern border security - they do seem to focus on that a lot.

Fortunately for them our military is too busy investigating the deplorable conditions of our long term care homes at the moment.

What makes you think I'm joking? What america is doing to itself is a crime against humanity. I'm dead serious about containing it. I'd go so far as to say straight blockade and sanctions.

Canadians would LIKE to see the border open, sure.  A lot of Canadians have winter homes in the United States.  A lot of Canadians shop across the border.

The inability of the U.S. to get control of the virus has significant implications, not only to Canada, but to all countries who formerly had roadways and flights and boats to the U.S.

And right now Canada has zero confidence in the U.S. to be able to do so.  Even the most conservative premiers (e.g. Ford) are saying: no.  Fix yourselves first.

Just another Trump lie.  Nothing to see here.  Move along.

I think in terms of food history, the first Yorkshire puddings were cooked in beef drippings under spit roasted beef.

But as they are today, the basic recipe is a kind of savoury pancake batter, cook small ones in muffin tins. Get the oil really hot, and don't open the door while they're cooking, and they'll puff up into lovely gravy receptacles.

I'm pretty sure they exist in American cuisine as well, but generally sweet and called popovers.

You have got to be the only person I have ever encountered who raves about "Canadian Cooking" - the one great thing most old skool English Canadians love about immigration, is the great new food options, everywhere.

I honestly can't give a ruling in popovers vs. dutch-baby, but my lazy-ass will always go with popovers when someone else makes them, and oven pancake when I make it.

The time for politeness is well over.  The fine for sneaking across the border should be one billion dollars, payable at time of arrest.  Failure to pay means the immediate confiscation of all assets, including racking up the full limit of their credit cards.  The American is then dumped at the border, naked, with passport in hand.

I wouldn't mind a small nuclear arsenal, pointed south, as a deterrent either.
