    Default I love being Canadian

    It's good to see even our most conservative institutions embracing policies of diversity and tolerance. Well done to the Canadian Military, and best wishes to the happy couple.

    I love Canada. I hope one day people look at like they do Holland.

    Except for all of your students who sew Canadian flags to their backpacks when travelling outside of your borders so that members of the opposite sex (or same sex, in some cases I'm sure) will talk to them...

    The quote stays.. its simply too good.

    As for the canadian flag sewing.. i wouldnt travel to the few countries where that makes a difference anyway. I find that Americans are embraced with hospitality all over the world if they act in a respectful way, just like any other peoples. In some countries its a bonus aswell, such as Japan.

    Weeeeeeell, I'm not that keen on gay marriage, and I'm certainly not that keen on gay soldiers having military marriages...

    But I'll take the risk of being too democratic, tolerant and open minded any day over being close minded, bigoted and fearful of anything that isn't old, white, and requires neither bombs or money to accomplish.

    At least some people from some countries don't have to hide their identity when they travel.

    Our new slogan:

    Canada. People actually like us.

    Americans shouldn't have to hide their identity overseas. If they are treaty unfairly because of their citizenship, it is the shame of the country they are in, not of the US.

    IE - You can hate the US, but venting that hatred on US expatriates shows more about you than about the US.

    And Beirut, that slogan is new, written in black, and required neither bombs nor money to accomplish. I am fearful of it.

    Countries like, oh, I don't know, Germany, France, the UK, or Holland, for example?

    Yes, I can see why you wouldn't want to travel to any of those hell-holes...

    You've obviously never experienced how you are "embraced" when they find out you're a Canadian...

    When I was in Costa Rica, there was this blonde tart working in the local bakery up in the mountains. For weeks she wouldn't say two words to me. Finally, just days before I leave, she hears me talking to my buddy, her eyes go wide and she says, "Oh, usted es Canadianse!", and then she's all warm and friendly. Obviously she thought I was from elsewhere.

    All that time wasted. Waaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!

    France and Holland of course, but its almost a compliment to be hated by those people. I dont enjoy either country.

    Ive traveled to the UK and Germany with American friends who dont speak German and they are treated as any other tourists. At least I didnt percieve any nastyness about their nationality.

    Its like being a Canadian with beaches all year round.

    My mind's not working right this moment as I've been doing too much work, but are you saying that Americans are generally liked in Russia, Turkey and Iran?

    No, but better than in France and Holland. Plus Russians have cool guns.

    Canadians are rather nice. Quite surprisingly actually since they are snowed in most of the year........

    to be honest I tend to prefer Americans to Canadians. It just works out that like that before anybody takes it the wrong way.

    And I love AK47s over any other gun that I shoot. Yay for the Russian firearms industry.

    Canadians are exactly like Americans except for one thing, they call themselves Canadian first.

    Yeah yeah yeah I'm gonna be hearing it from Beirut and others. What do I care? I'm not a typical nice Canadian.

    I think we have an official Satanist on some naval cruiser somewhere.

    Anyway Americans abroad are lovely:

    "Yeah sure. You see that huge Church-shaped building towering over the town? Yeah that' it."

    If you're American and visiting Norway you're treated as any other tourist.

    Well, you got some ultra-left youths with too much free time that occasionally wants to discuss US foreign policy (and of course quoting biased sources, like Al-Jazeera) with any American they come across.
