No, not for war, to go score some meth and heroin.  Working for the navy definitely has its ups and downs.

They do have a warship.  It is armed with the mark VI Excuse Me torpedoes, the Beg Pardon surface to air missile and a 5 in Ever So Sorry gun mounted forward.

That looks like a helluva lot more than 1200 kilos.

Also, why are the drugs in different coloured bags? "Okay, we got the good shiat in the blue bags, the discount crap in the light green ones, and the caustic lye in the dark green ones we'll sell to jerks we don't like"

/wait, who's sailing the ship?

sort-of, I mean not a real war. More like as a place to play the card game war, if you wanted to, while you were in the ocean and the weather was calm.

what isn't listed is the "you're selling faux maple syrup as real, quad turret, rail gun." Most people would find that kind of firepower unnecessary for dealing with maple syrup scammers but not everyone and those people are the ones with the quad turret rail gun so "good on ya, good sirs."

 Why do Americans/Farkers constantly make fun of Canada? Though a needless war, they helped us in Iraq, and many of them died. They're America's hat, and I'm glad we're resuming good relations. Looking back, I've never been mad at a Canadian. I mean, how could you? They're the opposite of our toxic assholes here in the US.

Now ask me about France. France, or people from from France, have helped save this country's ass multiple times, and given us great gifts. But "France surrenders" continues to be a meme here. They most recently took out Libya and all the US had to do was provide backup.

/there's a gold statue of Joan of Arc here in New Orleans, gifted by France.

For the most part, we had next to no involvement in Iraq 2: Electric Boogaloo

But we were right beside you guys in Afghanistan. Racked up some record setting sniper shots, thanks to your high-grade ammo

I can't keep my land wars straight. At any rate, I'm just glad you were hanging out with us.

For war? No, it's mostly for show. And training in case somebody starts a war we have to see through.

Having one warship is a bit problematic, what with the three Oceans on our coasts, but fortunately we only have one and bit countries on our coast and the bit is Denmark, who have been real sports about that Hans Island thing. They keep leaving us a bottle of Aquaivit to find and we leave them a bottle of Canadian Rye Whiskey.

Well, a majority of Alberta voted for Kenney, so ... I'm thinking at least that portion doesn't.  They got what they voted for -- Canada's Trump who's even more Trumpy than our premier Ford here in Ontario.

My Father used to have a Chesnut canoe--canvas and wood, not metal or birch bark. He was very proud of it. He had his circle of salmon fishing buddies, including one of the local billionaires and along with his ski buddies and work and his charitable friends, his funeral was well-attended by a very diverse crowd. Some of the old men from his naval days and the Legion Guard of Honour put me to shame by standing in line for hours in line.

I did not inherit his gregarious skills or his canoe. My small inheritance is sure to come in handy. I can post-pone applying for old age pension and Canada Pension in case I live longer than my health and my genealogy suggest I will.

The Baby Boomers and my half generation, the Late Boomers, are not in the shape our parents and grand-parents were. And God help the subsequent generations:  a lot of them were beefy by thirteen and had horrible diets and scarce exercise or work.

Just like the US navy, the Canadian navy has a big recruitment in the land-locked regions. Farm boys like the change of going to sea in ships, plus the wide-open spaces and skies. A lot of them find anything preferable to farming, even if hard work is involved. They're not the least bit phased by hard work. They've done harder, if not on the farm, then on the oil derricks. The US has a lot more landlocked states than Canada has land-locked provinces, and it shows.

InfoFreako: Does Canada know?


Canadians are like the British. We pretend not to know about our military and historic exploits, and feign ignorance where the money comes from and how much we have. But it's a comfort to know our Canadian and Anglo-American heritage is there if we need it.

Peasants. Especially the farmers. They'll vote for any Con-self-service reactionary, even the worst. Just because they have a little bit of land in hock to the banks, they consider themselves landowners and capitalists. Mind you, selling the farm sends a lot of them to comfortable digs in the Sunny South (Florida, Arizona or California, sometimes Mexico or even warmer parts). The trouble with land (and houses) is they're for living, not for selling and you either have them (and are land rich) or sell 'em (and have to find somewhere else to live).
