Well if you don't like my reasoning, (fill in the blanks).

I still think the original post didn't make any ****ing sense, whatsoever!


Cheers MATES!

Why don't you just shoot yourself now and save the taxpayers of Canada the trouble of having to do for you!!!!

Go crawl back under that rock you came from!!!!!

By the way, starting Monday I will be one of the Taxpayers of Canada. I am glad to inform you that I just accepted an offer for a high-paying IT job with a multinational company.

You can continue to hassle apple seeds to the jalapeno dips, you tree-huggin-commie!

Congratulations to you - I wish you luck in your new job
However, if you are in real life as you present yourself on this thread, then I don't think you'll be received too well, either in the job, or in Canada.

Default Re: My views about Canada.

Since returning to Canada, I have been quite surprised as to how homophobic Canadians really are. Canadians seem to pride themselves on how open they are to different races,religions and lifestyles but i have to say that it appears to be all a facade (please don't attack,leture,or bombard me with nonsense if that isn't spelled correctly(or should i say well or right......i shall get my shield ready).
Atleast in the Uk I think people are more upfront about their feelings and views. I say better the Devil you know ...........

There's someone on the street outside right now shouting obscenities about people of another race. I don't see any people of that race so I suppose he's stopped short of being in anyone's face. There's usually someone screaming and swearing about some absent minority group. I ignore them, it's a free-ish country and everyone has to have someone to hate.
