    You and me both, Goshin.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I am going to have to disagree with you there. If you're going to judge our music by the **** we export, then m'kay. But for the size of our country, we certainly have had some exceptional ones.

    Canadians are dichotomy on display On the one hand they are very liberal with high taxes and free healthcare but unlike American liberals they are pro resource extraction industries and go after their resources like we did here in the 50s. They mine, log and drill like there is no tomorrow and club baby seals to death with zeal. Their military is a complete joke and they live under Americas umbrella while at the same time trashing us for being to militaristic. They are kind of like the youngest kid in a family who is a bit spoiled and expects things to be handed to him on a silver platter. Oh and they drink crappy beer too.

    That's a bit unfair and inaccurate in my experience.

    Canada's military is small compared to ours (hell almost everyone's is), but of very high quality. I know some Canadian vets and I assure you they are consummate professionals in the trade of war.

    As for clubbing baby seals, well we don't have a lot of room to talk with all our factory farms and mass slaughter facilities do we?

    Frankly I do NOT see Canadians as being spoiled. Not at all. Yes they do depend on the US military umbrella to some degree... but so does half the world, right? I enjoy walking around with my son too.... he looks like a Viking warlord and thus nobody bothers us.

    Hell if their guns laws were a bit more reasonable I might move to Canada. Bit cold for a Southern boy but...

    A few months ago we were in Montreal and Quebec City. We didn't want to leave. French Canadians are very friendly. They love to to laugh.
    I remember when you were in Montreal & QC and I remember your pictures. Yes they are also beautiful cities.

    Lake Louise takes my breath away each time I see it. Banff is spectacular - I could spend weeks there every year and not tire of it.

    All in all I think of them about the same as any other nationality. I've met many Canadians that I like, and some that I do not. In general, as long as they're not Argos fans, they're alright
