    Back on 9/11 she falsely claimed that the terrorist pilots got into the US through Canada.

    Yeah, so pretty much no way to verify, huh? I mean one could be jumping into the frying pan.

    How can you possibly mistake Napolitano and McCain for Clinton?

    Just days after Janet Napolitano, the U.S. homeland security secretary, sparked a diplomatic kerfuffle by suggesting the terrorists took a Canadian route to the U.S. eight years ago, McCain defended her by saying that, in fact, the former Arizona governor was correct.
    "Well, some of the 9-11 hijackers did come through Canada, as you know," McCain, last year's Republican presidential candidate, said on Fox News on Friday.

    The Arizona senator's remarks prompted the Canadian embassy to immediately reissue remarks made earlier this week by Ambassador Michael Wilson, who reminded Americans once again that no 9-11 perpetrators came to the U.S. via Canada.

    LOL!


    No, don't for a second think that I condone the faulty reasoning that has led this nation to where we are.



    All I'm saying is, is it not clear that our government could give two ****s about the laws of other nations? I mean, I thought it was clear...but I guess it's possible others don't.

    To be less glib for moment, I think corporations with a conscience (all three of them) would leap at the chance to move operations over the border in the name of protecting the rights of their customers.



    You really have to say that again to let it sink in.

    How are Canadian taxes in comparison with US taxes? Real question.
    You really believe it'll do them any good? They're safer here, out of country they are open to any kind of spying the NSA wants. They have acres of the most powerful computers in the world, there is no where to hide.
