On the other hand, the US is like a puppy with ADHD. We can't sit still for two seconds without sticking our nose in someone else's crap. It's like we have to be involved in EVERYTHING that happens throughout the world. Seriously, who gives a damn what's happening in other countries, as long as we maintain our own stability and security. Of course, it's a little late for that now. And then we want to point fingers at each other? We want to blame ourselves but we never want to accept the blame. It's an endless cycle. This is a nation of greed and gluttony. Everyone wants power but no one can have it. And...now I'm rambling.

But, yeah, how's Canada? It has to be better than this, right? Based on South Park's portrayal, I'd say you guys are pretty interesting.

Proud to be Canadian! I do believe a large portion of the population is as kind and polite as we're made out to be, though there's rude/selfish/twisted people anywhere you go.

As a Canadian I don't think anything poorly of the US except maybe the ignorance that a portion of them have towards us. But live and let live

We are an Immigrant Nation (like the US) many of us are of Chinese descent. for many reasons. (Our national railways were built on the backs of Chinese labour in the 1870s and 80s for one thing) Welcomed the people facing the fall of South Vietnam, the handover of Hong Kong etc.

and yeah.

We consider ourselves friends and relatives of the US and sometimes that comes off with good natured ribbing, envious mocking, and little bit of issues forever unresolved.

English Speaking Canada was founded on the people escaping the US in 1785 (you were burning their homes, and tarring and feathering them at the time) , You attacked us in 1812. We're friends now but such things are never completely forgotten.

I love the Canadian hype thread, last time I checked, most Canadian people are racist on Xbox Live, always telling me the N word, even tho I'm Hispanic lol, and lets not forget there over reactions to losing Hockey games lol, all in all, Canada has it's fair share of good people and A-holes, just don't go out and say there the "nicest" or "bestest" people, because I for one never seen there "kindness" in person or over the internet.

how does one answer that?

this is a bit of canada ( a tv show and a song by a Canadian humour band)

If you follow the other links on this thread you may find more about Canada. but...

Canada is where I live how do I answer a question like 'how's Canada'

As for foriegn policy, actually you're mostly sticking your nose in for the sake of your business. Which is an effort at economic security. Which secures us too as your biggest trading partner.

We have troops in foreign countries too. One of our Prime Ministers got a nobel peace prize for 'inventing' Peace Keeping. and we've had a greater per capita participation in the wearing of blue berets or ascots than just about any other nation. That's not 'minding our own business'


we were heavily involved in Afghanistan and only recently pulled out as we were scheduled to do.



Well. That video was oddly depressing.

But, yeah...I can't really talk politics much because I get most of my news from a tabloid site run by strictly left-wingers who tend to make the democrats sound as good as possible and only report the bad things regarding republicans. Not that there's very much good to talk about for either side...they're both just as broken as the systems they're trying to support. Maybe it's just my cynicism shining through, but I can never find anything positive to say about right or left so I usually just say nothing at all.

And let's just pretend that our foreign policy wasn't completely screwed up. What about domestic? There is so much wrong with how we run things within the country. We've got idiots in congress who decide that their money can be better spent elsewhere when there are so many people suffering and in dire need of aid right after a freaking super storm. They've just lost everything they had. They have no assets, nowhere to live, but they can pick up the pieces and find someway to deal with it on their own right? Because this is the perfect time to lose everything you own, what with the fantastic economic situation. We've got mass shootings by the dozen. It seems like every month we lose a bigger percentage of our population to maniacs with guns. And this could be prevented, if the people in power would get off their butts and do something about it. Every time there is an act of mass violence, we have the same response: something has to change. But does it? Hell no. Because hat might actually fix something, and we don't want to go starting new trends. But then comes the blame game again. Let's blame the media our citizens, our beloved children, are exposed to, because everyone who's ever played a video game or watched a violent movie has devolved into a primal state of senseless brutality, so that makes sense. Let's blame the guns, because if said criminal hadn't had such easy access to that specific type of weapon, this obviously wouldn't have happened. Let's blame everyone and everything that possibly could have contributed to the event, excluding, of course, the person who actually committed the atrocity.

So yeah. I would just love to live somewhere that I can watch the news or walk outside or even think about my country without feeling this anger bubbling up inside me. I can't stand it. Plus I'd get to hear everyone talk in awesome Canadian accents all the time.

That the Canadians i have met have been pleasant, nice people, and you can sometimes tell if someone is Canadian just by listening to them say "Out" it gives it away.
