What a flippin heap of lies and unchecked claims in one sentence ... guess assholes can be found everywhere.

Personally, I wish I could have been there.

He told them that we are important trading partners. The US exports 23% of it's goods to Canada, while Canada exports 80% of theirs to the US. He couldn't just have left it at the first part and acknowledge that Canada really kind of got screwed with their pants on by NAFTA. He very clearly articulated those numbers. The message: Dry up; you need us more than we need you. Some way to mend fences, huh?
Alice Wrote the following on 12/01/2004 4:11 PM : Doesn't surprise me. Bush has no respect for anyone outside of the US. And for only a limited few within the US.
NeoCon Wrote the following on 12/01/2004 4:20 PM : Quebec is full of French-speaking Communists and Muslim thugs. I agree with Bush. Once you get to Nova Scotia or Alberta the population returns to normal.
Nony Wrote the following on 12/01/2004 4:34 PM : Fine, if it makes you happy not to have a single original thought...good for you Bush does not have many complicated thoughts either, so it does not stress your brain to agree with him. Nothing like black and white vision, if it is't black it got to be while. Takes a lot of strain out of the thinking process. Problem with you guys is that if it is 99.9% white you still say, look 0.1% Black, See, it must be black.

En français - NeoCon écrit à "over le top" ; des commentaires à pisser les gens outre d'un peu, égal il sait que ses commentaires sont un peu stupide. Il le fait pour être plein d'humour, inciter pas vraiment. Je réponds pour lui maintenant parce que je le connais seulement des poteaux de travail.

I have to say that the majority of the USA view Canadiens with respect, we not only respect your mixed culture, and your ability to create a government controlled health care system, we also value you as an ally.
However, we also know that your country is working with a very small population compared with the USA. Your ideas are not transferrable to the US.
It's a shame that Bush had to use his trip to Canada to spank the Canidien people with the fact that you rely on us for your exports. Yes, that's true, but it was in bad taste. It was done as a slap to the face for your non-support of the war in Iraq.
Alice Wrote the following on 12/01/2004 11:53 PM : That kinda knocks me out, as there are canadian troops in iraq .. not many, but there are some.

But I do know that there are Many muslims in Quebec, and thus I would not be surprised if many french (muslims) participated in the rally...
Not that thats a bad thing, anyone can protest what ever they want as long as they are peaceful :)
codewolf Wrote the following on 12/02/2004 00:42 AM : NeoCon, now that I know you have some internet outside of work, I'll stop defending your posts, I really don't want to, that's your job.
codewolf Wrote the following on 12/02/2004 00:46 AM : I do have to say that Montreal is one of my most favorite places to visit. That is one fucking great city! It's like going to Boston but with more fun people! Not to dis Boston, that's a great place to go as well, but Montreal has so many great places to visit, it's just fucking fun and enjoyable.
NeoCon Wrote the following on 12/02/2004 01:34 AM : French-speaking women. French-speaking women dancers. French-speaking strippers dancing around a poll. Drunk French-speaking strrippers doing a lap dance. How much does it cost to fly to Montreal?
codewolf Wrote the following on 12/02/2004 1:43 PM : Fly? I can drive up there in 4-5 hours.
