I'm glad you see the distinction between those who have an alleged inferiority complex and those who may actually have one..

Relax. Old man.
I've already stated my perception of your predilection for seeking endorsement rather than simply typing opinions.

I don't think Canada is the "greatest" place either. It is also however, not lacking in those areas you've earmarked as failing you personally.

You gotta try harder if "old man" is considered a snipe by you or your peers. You aren't even hitting inside the ten ring with that. It's a compliment only children mistake for a proffered slight.

Migrating to the USA is not going to be the panacea you think, as they show an even greater disdain for those who make excuses and those who are never content, those whom others would unkindly refer to as whiners and malcontents.

Most of us are mediocre - almost all of us don't want to admit it

That's not a Canadian thing or American thing - its a human thing.

Former Nebraska Senator Roman Rhuska on mediocrity, when supporting nomination of supposedly mediocre Supreme Court justice nominee G. Harold Carswell: "So what if he is mediocre? There are a lot of mediocre judges and people and lawyers. They are entitled to a little representation, aren't they? We can't have all Brandeises, Cardozos, and Frankfurters and stuff like that there." (link to source)

Yup, or as I referred to as entitled-bandwagon-firstworlders.

whatever makes you feel better on a message board old man. you are not going to change my mind with your Overdone essays.

You don't know me. What the **** is wrong with you? Do you know my plans? Do you know the people I work/ will work with?

Are you gay? I seem to get into it a lot with gay guys on here.

You are very judgmental and i think you are a bitter old pick that types essays to make it seem like you are more intelligent than me. If you don't notice we are on a message board and i can state my opinion freely. You seem not to agree. Like you want to be a dictator or something. Go spend a day thinking of a response to give the illusion you are actually witty.

You take personal shots at me like you know me. If you do who the **** are you? Unless you figured me all out in the 100 posts I have on here.

Here's the deal kid.

I don't think you're even playing a small part in the drama you've patterned for yourself on here.

You're a narcissistic little simpleton chained to his mother's water heater who engages in the well known practice of word association to bait others with fallacious accusations.

This last post is a veritable textbook example of failed puberty.

I'm judgemental by considering all of your posts with the total disdain they deserve and by which they seem to have been received by the obviously 'more intelligent than yourself' members on here.

You've now reduced yourself to the most puerile name calling in what constitutes a reasonable facsimile of a 3 year old throwing a tantrum in a crowded room of adults.

The "bitter old p*ick typing essays", as I've already explained, I'll accept as a compliment. The bitter part not being in any way accurate as I'm totally and completely thankful for the life I continue to enjoy.

"old prick" may however be completely accurate as I've been called that many times on the golf course so have no choice but to accede it's credence. I'll wear that like a badge of honour and will thank whatever gods awarded me the title, they didn't deem me fit for the "servile whining malcontent" moniker instead.

"Typing essays in an attempt to seem more intelligent than you" is obviously another assessment based upon your more than adequately demonstrated, apparent lack of effective secondary school education. Unlike yourself I enjoy playing this game and am not on here deliberately fomenting acrimony while calling it "opinion".

By the by, any and all reference to "gay" used as a pejorative in such egregious fashion puts you in a category that will ultimately cause you grief further down the road. Freud devoted a whole thesis to your particular persona. One can only hope that grief will take the form of your personal welfare being put firmly in the hands of any number of gay people. Pray their compassion and understanding are of a higher stature than yours. Their superior intelligence will not be in doubt.

keep labeling me when you don't know me.
I guess due to your ADD, you've already forgotten your labelling yourself with your post # 61?

Keep posting as you have been and we'll all get to know every facet lacking in your character.

Any prospective employer is going to read you like a .10 cent comic book and adjudge you cruelly indeed.

Reading what I'm sure will be a carefully drafted resume by an on-line service to then be faced with personally interviewing you and asking some stock questions will result in a quick eye-glance back at the resume to be followed instantly with "well; I think we have an understanding of your potential contribution to our company, we'll be in touch, thank you, don't forget to have your parking ticket validated on your way out".

Your perception of being the victim of a lack of opportunity within Canada is very rapidly being determined by those of us reading your posts to simply be the result of your personal deficits in any number of critical areas. You are a small fish in a very large body of water my friend and my early advice holds merit. Use your time to hone your skillset instead of whining about your lack of opportunity.

Even the most incompetent interviewer is going to fathom your lack of skills disguised as "luck of the draw".

Am I being unduly harsh for your delicate nature youngster?

So I don't have a job now? So I do not have a wife and kids and self sufficient? So you are making stuff up about me so you can prop yourself on a pedastal? I have a job. I have a home with my wife. I have opportunities. I am well liked in the real world and don't need your approval. You seem to think i want people's validation. I don't i came to share my opinion. Just because you are stubborn and believe your self wOrth is a lot more than it is. Doesn't make you anything more than you are. a nobody. Just like the rest of us posting on here.
