    Rat does not want to be a (as American Alfred Yankovic said) Canadian idiot. Rat also needs a 1000-foot-high wall on Alaska.

    Anybody remember Governor George Wallace? Part of his platform was to declare war on Canada..(…..but bring it on, you Yanks! We beat you in 1812….)

    Actually we didn’t beat the Americans in 1812. The current history campaign on Canadian TV ads is pretty misleading. Plus we lost part of the Maritimes as compensation to the US. They call it Maine now.

    walls are useless. romans had walls which resulted barbarian hordes overrunning the empire. berlin had a wall, result was an united germany. china still has a great wall, that still did not keep the northern tribes invading. the biggest problem of a wall, is maintaining that wall(manpower, money, maintenance, etc…). even warfare, fortifications and walls are useless, maginot line, siegfried line, etc…

    I propose consolidating Canada, the U.S. and Mexico into one great Nation…makes sense to me. No walls other than the Rockies necessary and resources available to compete on the world market once again.

    Funny thing…those who live along the border to the south…very few of them are fired up about border security. I know one town who’s fire department is largely manned by illegals; the illegals work and mix freely in all those border towns. Some get scared when someone gets killed, but they all know it’s the drugs that cause that to happen, and 90+% of illegals are not in the drug business; they just want to feed their families. It’s mostly the politicians/media/extreme right who keep that issue in the news, all for money.

    Thank you! I keep saying that Obama walked into a huge mess – not of his doing. He is doing what he can to try to get us out but it takes time. People do forget too quickly and they expect changes over night -doesn’t happen that way. I personally am better off now than I was 4 years ago.

    Since the bail out was completely repaid by the auto industry, WITH INTEREST I’d gladly take the ’blame". Idiots who crashed the economy blame a successful; program that they;ve belittled, Bigger idiots defend the administration without defending the program.

    Justin Biebers aren’t the only ones we need to keep contained in Canada! don’t forget that Canada also subjected us to Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Nickelback, Theory of a Dead Man, Avril Lavigne and Carly Rae Jepsen. Though they are partially forgiven because they gave us RUSH and Alanis Morisette
