    But don't the Europeans rotate the presidency amongst themselves or something like that?

    Yeah, don't anger TC. Living so close to the border, I'd be one of the first to die if he decided to instigate a mass invasion. Then again, with the typical traffic on the Peace Bridge, Meson and I would probably have at least a few hours to escape...

    Britain? I always thought he was a born Brit myself... but that could be one of my misconceptions.

    Alot of people seem to think Chris Roberts is British...why I couldn't tell you....

    I was having an arguement with some Brit one time about Star Wars and Wing Commander. I made some comment about them being American, and this guy was like "You just think they're American because they're good...they're both British". I then laughed.

    George Lucas and Chris Roberts are both from California....

    People think that because he grew up in England and has a British accept, presumably.

    NO NO NO! It's a dig on Canada. Get it? "What army?"


    But seriously, as long as they keep their socialism to themselves, they're the best neighbors anyone could ask for.

    I know the joke, but the only army we've got is our snipers. 2430 meters with two shots isn't something to sneeze at - the best record for a sniper shot was previously set by a Marine in Vietnam at 2500 yards, or 2286 meters in 1970.

    See http://www2.alberta.com/news/canada/fs.cfm?source_id=CP&id=1143955 for details.

    And I don't think we're really socialist anymore, or at least not under the recent two governments. Maybe very liberal conservatives, but definitely not socialist. At least the fact that the social support programs are disappearing argue against that...

    Yeah, but where do you get most of your weapons, and weapons platforms, from? Patriotism asside, I know many good Canadians. It's just the way they run a few things cuts themselves off at the knees... like exporting oil only to import it back, tarrifs, lol... then again a lot of American's couldn't plant a garden if Martha Stewart showed them, soooo...

    P.S. I am American, so don't tell me I don't know jack on the garden statement. The whole state I live in barely knows how to VOTE. (FL if you didn't get the joke...)

    Canada is Social Capitalist....most western nations are....nobody is true Capitalist, and few are true Socialists. Canada is closer to Socialist though, with the US being more towards Capitalist.
