That is more real than you intended. In my corner of Canada, the Chinese
population is about 50% and growing. Entire shopping malls are taken over by
them without an English word anywhere in the mall.
Loh ha ma?
Here in The U.S. it's Mexican Spanish but people are ignoring the
Chinese infiltration of other countries and don't realize what can
and will happen with "uncontrolled" immigration to the borders, language
and culture of a country. If you and me were put in suspended animation
then revived after even a half century we would hardly recognize our own
countries and the culture. O_o

tell people there are a lot of "real" Africans living in Birmingham,
their reaction is usually quite entertaining. ^_^
So what are they going to do...send over cargo containers loaded with
troops? Or launch their 20 short range nukes?
Good for you!
Shrug..when they were installed wrong..ayup...screwed em up good.
And the earthquake and tidal wave we sent them...doubled the money.
There are what...65 million Canucks..and 350 million Americans?
Pray we remain good neighbors. Else we will send you all the wetbacks.
Crom knows you have enough Islamofundimentalist terrorists hanging out
in Canada, planning for more strikes on the US.
Piss em off, double dare you!
90% of the Middle East oil goes to China. The US gets part of the
remaining 10%. Canada will be a minor supplier to them. And probably
become dependant on them for income.
Most of the US energy is indeed domestically produced, principally
from gas at the moment. With new sources coming on line, we should be
net energy exporters in a few years.
Energy independence and the economy are not the same issue. Granted,
high energy consumption is linked to an active economy, but energy is
in no way causing The Great Recession. In fact your great Chinese
economy is very dependent on what is to them foreign oil.
We told them to build them in an earthquake zone that was subject to
tsunamis did we? We told them to install a backup system incapable of
shutdown in an earthquake did we? We told them not to upgrade it did
we? We told them to claim it was great and lie about the shoddy
condition did we? Damn, we be bad.
Your blind hatred keeps you from seeing simple facts and makes you
look like an idiot. Great image you are presenting for Canadians.
High prices for energy and petroleum (caused by your Fed driving down
your dollar) is playing a significant role in your stagnant, near-dead
Their per-capita expenditure for oil is very low. Their economy or
economic output is nowhere near as sensitive to the price of oil (read:
gasoline) as yours is. Like it or not, their working class can produce
stuff for 12 hours a day and eat/sleep the other 12 hours for a lot less
energy input (petro-energy input) than US, Canada or Europe.
You twisted enough arms or played enough political cards or greased
enough palms to force them as a nation to go with your US (GE) designed
boiling water reactors, which are extremely vulnerable and inherently
unsafe anywhere where earthquakes or flooding can happen (which is
essentially anywhere in Japan). Corporatism at it's finest.
Good point. They're called rag-heads over here.
The idiocy of suggesting that the US would threaten Canada with nukes.
Would you really be that depraved of a country to do that? (don't
You'd have to put boots on the ground. And just remember we've got some
of the best military sharp-shooters in the world. And because we're a
NATO member country, there are some friends we'd call on (and just
remember that the UK has nukes).
You must be suffering from H.I.S.I., pronounced "hissy". It stands for
(H)umor (I)rony (S)arcasm (I)mpairment. People with that particular
mental disease are said to have H.I.S.I. fits and often put on a big
display of pseudo-intellectualism about the subject at hand when they
fail to see the humor or bizarreness of statements made by someone who
is attempting to pull their leg. It's also called The Mr. Data response
in some circles. ^_^
Indeed you do have some..some of the best sharpshooters in the world.
Not bad at all. And I tip my hat to the lads from the plains
Now the rest of you...snicker..... hose heads ya know eh?!
Gunner, who grew up in Northern Michigan in the Keewanah...and could
see Canada from his front porch...on a clear day....chuckle
