People around the world have mostly come to the conclusion that whatever the American Dream may have been, is farce now. Atleast here in Europe, the general idea is that the US is not the place to go, not even on vacation.
and the condescending point is????
Ya know.......if people WANT to come here, and do so through proper channels and accomodate to our way of life (assimilate)......FINE. Not a problem. They are welcome and diversity is a treasure. Now if they don't or wish to whine, bitch, complain and compare .... then do us all a favor and stay the heck out of here and go to America. No one is forcing anyone to come here, live here or stay here. Don't like it??? get the feck out.....and go south ......and follow the American "dream" /FANTASY .
We have the good fortune and common sense to be grounded in reality and can differentiate dreams from fantasies.
To those the come, wish to come.....and are willing to adapt to our lifestyle etc and work to wards making Canada a continuing progressive nation.........the welcome mat is out for ya.
not sure why the feck .....the USers have to make everything a damned contest. Almost sounds like developemental penis envy. (ya know, : mine is bigger/better than yours). Will be interesting to see what "america " looks like when it actually matures.
btw: there is no need to "defend" Canada.........as CA stands on its own merit ........or lack of. It speaks for itself......and all the verbal defending is just going to politicize something that does not have to be tarnished that way.
"he who protests too much"....(and all that)
