I spent a year abroad when I was in college. I went a lot of places and everyone was really nice. I am an American and LOOK like an American (I am from Philly so I definitely SOUND like an American). BUT__the Brits were nice, the Irish were the best, the Dutch were great (and mellow), the Greeks were friendly, the Spanish wonderful and low and behold even the French were really nice to me. The only people that I met in all my travels that were consistently horrible were the Canadians. I don't say this to be mean --it's just true. They all wore giant Canadian flags on their backpacks, so --god forbid-- someone didn't mistake them for being from the States. They told bad jokes referencing our inability to speak more than one language, and generally bristled whenever a lower-48 was around. Why? I can't answer that because to this day I don't know. It can't be as simple as "we took all their hockey players and now their teams suck" (one explanation that I have been given).
NOW, they are continuing to harbor two AWOL US soldiers --continuing the proud tradition of slapping the US in the face that started during Vietnam.
I hate when Canadian bloggers have US politics pages. I just read one and I had to fight the urge to post a comment and risking giving the person an ounce of legitimacy.
Canada: Extradite our soldiers and allow Fox News on your airways...what are you afraid of?
