Ingrid,

You talking about "arrogance?"

Wow! We are so ignorant and Canada has it all figured out, right? Oh...look to Scandinavia...ok...and like The Netherlands where you are taxed if you have money in the bank and they don't give a rat's behind if you are too dumb to know that you have high blood pressure and you will have a heart attack...And die! It's cheaper for the government. Make 60K a year and taxed 59 percent.

Your population there in Canada is a fraction of what it is here and you pay heavy taxes for your
universal health care. Look at your cost of housing!
Yes, it's good to take care of your people...but really...we have a very large population in the US
and charities step up to help.

Is there not a balance between total dependence on the government to support and offer health care with the price of astronomical taxes and what's happening in the US...homelessness...lack of health care for all?

Stop with your know it all...I live in Canada the great land...just above the US...

I'm tired of your arrogance, quite frankly.

You know AnnaL this kind of attitude is so childish. What a rude comment. I would love to visit Canada. SE--the following comment wasn't for me, right?

I put the wordd arrogance in quiote marks to bring attention to criticism piled on the US by those who question how America is the FREATEST country on Eath. It was a sublety you chose to ignore. I do think the US is a great country, but it is certainly NOT the best at social issues of great importance to many US citizens.

I believe you told me you lived close to the borer--Lewistown? As I recall, you talked about visiting--never living in Canada. Of no importance, but I can easily recall your comments about all the mosques in the Niagara district. Not accurate, but we are always happy to see our American neighbours.

If you are offended by my opinions, you should simply ignore them.

I seem to recall the Pres saying Niagara was a beautiful spot, and all the better for being next to Honduras, whom the Socceroos are playing tomorrow in a World Cup qualifier. If we beat them, I think we go on to play Nambia ;-) Goooooo Aussies!

So nice to talk about football (soccer) The All Whites (NZ) take on Peru (ranked much higher) in Wellington today. Then there's a return leg in Lima next week. Overall winner gets to go to the World Cup - loser cries bitterly for four more years, especoally of its Peru who are expecting to win!

What?! They aren't all white? OMG! That's sure gonna shock SOME of the team members, and the All Blacks! But colour is a minor concern compared to the leg in the Lima beans. Who the hell was the wise acre who came up with that bright idea? Don't they know some of us are vegetarians and we don't 'preciate legs in our Lima beans? Moreover don't they know some of us don't like Lima beans even without legs in 'em? What the hell do they think we are anyway? Can a Bells?

Recon, this is why I see you differently...the "All White"...are not all white men, just as the "All Black" football team in France are not all blacks.

and I don't see anything wrong with either name.
but there are people like you that will...

Although soccer is also played here, football, and baseball, and basketball are the games most often played by our young men/woman...especially for Blacks...why? simply because they start playing those games from early ages...now there is a Soccer league, but sorry I can't say whether they're all white or black...and I don't think most care...its winners that makes a team...Oh by the way, what do you think all this fuss about football players is all about...surely owners couldn't care less what the players look like, they want the black men that can win, and give the public what they pay for...

Further what the hell would it make any difference if they were all white, I would think winning would be a lot more important.

I'm not into sports myself, wouldn't even know how the players score...I just don't think the name "All White" team means literally all whites...just as the All Black football team, in France are all blacks.

What are you looking for..some reason to bring up prejudice...I could speak much more about areas here where there needs to be some serious thought.

I'm a horse racing fan, love to see the horses run and it so happens many of those riders are from latin countries...so what!

Just Some Thoughts!

Ahem!
You're right, mrsmajor! I think it's YELA of Senior recon to insinuate that we be RED in the face at the All WHITES being called All WHITES, despite some of its players being BROWN--perhaps, some BLACK, but certainly not all WHITE.

I think Senior recon deserves a BLACK eye for his colorful comment, which, yes, should make him feel BLUE.
He should be scolded 'til he's PURPLE in the face, as such colorful comments are a BLACK stain on our aspiring GREEN world.
Indeed, Shrinking VIOLET would turn ORANGE at such a remark.

And absolutely under no circumstances should he be tickled PINK, as he navigates his GRAY (yes, I said 'gray') days.

And for you Indie-Car racing fans, INDI, GO!
