I am a consumer with an interest in what you so called professionals
know. After hiring a friend to do some work on my home A/C system I
realized that although I must respect his knowledge of the trade I
didn't have to like his bedside manner. Of course with his 35 years
experience and a PHD in pissing off friends and the public, he
proceeded to do the work while drinking beer and smoking pot. He also
had this ship eating attitude which I cannot understand since I was
willing to pay him whatever he said and was not looking for the deal.
I had to put up with his bull ship for 4 days to remount my A/C
handler, put a drier on the line, evacuate the system with a borrowed
from another friend's pump and guages. The work he did so far cost me
$357.00. The system is not charged. He wanted another $100. You must
understand that he was in need of money and I was willing to pay him
for something I wasn't using for 2 years and would probably never turn
it on since I don't really need the A/C. My fans keep me comfortable
and I take cold showers. I saved probably $2500. in electric bills the
past 2 years. Americans are a bunch of spoiled rotten idiots. In
order to work on A/C you need not know a heck of a lot. Skills are
minimal at best and I would say the drinking and smoking pot are
probably the hardest ones to learn. It takes practice, cost money, and
burns your brains and health all to hell. So remember anyone can be a
smart ass A/C technician.
If they do it right, they need to know diagnostics & tech info that in
some ways surpasses the medical profession.
Some techs work on every conceivable application from High, Medium, to
Low Temp, & there are thousands of different components & circuitry.
Many different refrigerants are used with different pressures &
No half-wit can do the job right! An excellent functioning brain with
reasoning powers is an absolute must.

Seriously, where do you live?
I'm surprised at your confusion over what, to most, would be considered
"American troops" does not include Canadians or Brazilians.
When an Italian says he's "going to America", he isn't coming to Canada.
When you say "I'm proud to be an American", do you mean a North American???
There are other differences as well.
To become an American, you must speak english, write a test, live in the
country for a while.
To be a Canadian, all you have to do is show up at the border.
Someone from China can live in Canada for a few months and declare himself
Canadian. After all, every vote counts, right?
I wonder if I lived in China for 6 months, could I start telling everyone
The United States Armed Forces include people from many different
countries that are not US citizens. After they do their tour of duty
