Actually Bush lowered taxes. I'm not saying that was a good or bad move, but it happened.[/quote]


Bush may have lowered Federal taxes, but each state has their own taxes. Some state has local taxes and state taxes as well as there is federal taxes.. He may have lowered federal taxes but that says nothing about the states raising their own taxes.

That's true!! Maybe you should be considering escaping your state then, not your country. :P

No truly, I love Canada. But please do your homework before you gleefully pursue a new life outside of US borders. I was completely shocked and mortified at several things I won't mention.

Is the Canadian dollar losing its value as the American dollar currently is? Yet another comparison that I would like to make.
You need to remember a couple things. While a depreciating American dollar is not all good news, far from it, it's also definitely not all bad.

For example, it is really bad right now for Americans to travel. During the money exchange, we lose out big time. That's not cool. However, it's a GREAT time for visitors!
Tourism will jump a great deal while the American dollar stays low because foreigners do well in the conversion. That's good and will be great for the economy! Also, American exports become less expensive which means our trade-deficit will decrease (which it has) and our manufactures and exporters will have to ramp up production to meet the increasing demand of cheaper American goods. This will bring in new jobs, fuel the economy, and reduce the deficit.

I mean, don't get me wrong, it's not all peaces and creme. However, a weakened American dollar is a good thing in many ways.

3. I HATE those clean and beatiful large Metropolitan areas.
4. I HATE that home-grown hockey talent (Aside from Modano)
5. I HATE their reluctance to blow the rest of the world up.
6. I HATE their concern for education and affordable healthcare.
7. I HATE the way they talk. What's all that aboot?
8. I HATE how their heads bob up and down off their face when they talk.
9. I HATE Terrance and Phillip. They are just foul.

Heck, outside of the Red Green Show and Molson beer, it's worthless!
If that was meant to be sarcasm...

point#2, unpolluted water?

Okay I'll watch you go swimming in stinky-Lake Ontario around Toronto in waters that have more fish that swimming upside-down () than right-side up.

Useable water? Walkerton.

Point#8, Do we really bob our heads more than anyone else when we talk?

Where did 'aboot' come from? (I am so curious)

I don't know anyone who says that. Except I think Newfoundlanders.

I don't tink da Newfies say "aboot" eed-er.
Dey say tings like "...Yes b'y!.." and "...Lard tunderin'..." me trout!

*I guess part of it depends on what accent the listener had when they heard "aboot." Perhaps to some Newfies might sound like they're saying "aboot", but I've worked with a lot of Newfies (natives of Newfoundland) and how they pronounce their "ou" would be one of the last things you'd pick up of their accents, at least of the guys I've worked with.

Who are Terrance and Phillip?
I watch South Park sometimes.
What kind of of accent is that?

I think the terrorists prefer the American side,
while most tourists prefer the much more grander and scenic Canadian Falls.

What's even worse is that after paying the outrageous prices, you have to watch the Leafs.

Q: What do the Spring and the NHL Playoffs have in common?

A: The leafs (sp) are out.
