    ...though we are the only country that still has our panties in a bunch over Cuba. It is a vacation favorite of Canadians. I was on Air Canada flight not long ago and saw the Air Canada vacation planner in the seat back. The planner featured some beautiful resorts in Cuba.

    This continued issue we have with Cuba is beyond silly. They are no threat to the US. The best way to effect change in Cuba is to make US tourism their number #1 industry.

    I don't believe they were French. To be honest, it's not even a fair comparison, as most of the Canadians I've known have been from Canadian forums. A person's online behavior can differ significantly from how they would behave in person.

    That said, however; the mods and founder of the Canadian SD.net still strike as being some of the most genuinely unpleasant people I've ever met.

    We are not socialist and we are not lefties though most support Democrats and Obama as they are the farthest left aligning with Progressive Conservative ideology. Our prime minsters are known for making fun of American presidents like Nixon, Reagan, and Bush for being assholes. Bush is a Southern idiot, that a large majority of Canadians hate, he just reinforced the stereotype.

    I'm not particularly fond of GW either, mainly because I consider him a bit to far left_

    Although oddly enough, the hatred the left has for him is his only redeeming quality_

    I don't know what to do about Cuba. I know it's all about politics and Cuba nationalizing businesses, being a communist country. I can understand that we maybe wouldn't want to trade with them, but I think we should let people come and go as they please. That part is pretty ridiculous.

    Of course people will think of their human rights abuses, but they certainly aren't the only country and we deal with plenty of countries with bad records when it comes to human rights. China comes to mind immediately.
