I am sorry, however you are in violation of HTR rules here. IF you had bothered to take the time to read the rules you would have realized that this is forbidden talk here and just plainly against the rules, so as a good upstanding citizen, I cannot condone your action here.]]>
I don’t care who invented Hockey, or who’s Health Care system did what to who.
If there a line in the sand,
Sure, We think Americans are Ignorant, they think we are Passivists.
The Anthems got booed,
Look, I am Canadian and I was ashamed of it, I thought it was petty and small, just as petty and small as the Americans who are pouring our French and Germans Wines.
Some not all on both sides are playing this out like idiots. but never the less its on BOTH sides of this “line”
I think the best line of Luckys statement was this
“Now can we all just play and watch this and other great games without retarded and childish comments based on what side of an imaginary line we all live on”
COme on J you know me,
You make it seems that Canada is at the mercy of the USA Economically and in some sences its true,
86% of our trade goes through the US, but keep in mind 39% of your trade is with us and 54% of your indirect Trade is through us.
We make your Cars,
We Feed Your Masses,
We Provide the Materials to Build your Homes.
So from one Economist to one who knows Economics,
I will be the first to tell you its a Gun to eachothers head rather then the big Bad American who can crush is with one stroke.
The Trade Numbers may seem quite different I mean all things told we have a 30% higher dependency right???
Not So Fast.
Of the Trade we do with you 78% is Raw Materials and Base Goods? Stuff that we can unload on the world Market, where 67% of the Goods you Trade with us are Direct Goods. . . .
Needless to say we would feel the bang worse, but we sure would pull out a hell of alot faster then you.
So like I said pull this with the Kiddies that don’t know any better not with me.
If you want to have it out over this bring it to the WOWforum, I’m not here enough to do this.
