Eh during the Cold War the defense industry provided a large portion of jobs for Long Island. Aerospace in particular. Miltary industrial complex provided a good support for California too.

I have a good comeback for French while not speaking a French. I probably have more knowledge about Quebec than they do and can play some good Quebec songs for them and they will share a moment of being first to something they can understand but never heard, upon which I have heard but can't understand.

Hey, we're brothers, daniel. We bicker, we fight, have opinions about the other, some bad, most good. But that's what brothers do from time to time. When it's all said and done, there is no mountain we wouldn't move for each other.

Mhm... I guess football (the real one) is just a bit different. I mean, we don't hold any serious grudge against Germany and work together just fine, but that's what happens when they play the German anthem in Vienna:

Screaming and whistling from the opposing side. Same vice versa:

It's very rude to whistle during another country's national anthem.

Not much going on here recently, as we haven't played anyone interesting.

FC Copenhagen is coming to visit HJK Helsinki on Thursday in the Europa League, maybe they have something in store.

The relationship between the US and Canada is very different than the one between Austria and Germany. As Magnatomicflux said, the two countries are more like brothers. True brothers where as Germany and Austria seem more like step siblings of a blended family.

Because they went to war with the most religious group of people on the planet. Invaded INVADED an nation that was harmless and cuased massive break ups of other nations in the area. Got Gaddaffi killed, and so forth.

Also on the brink of 2001 Amerika was going into the informational era. America was going to have flying cars and greener world but we got a stupid Bush who plunged the nation into garbage.

Right now Amerika is like an cult using it's weapons against it's own people. God fearing people while the non-heterosexuals and blinded-feminists are thinking the nation is getting better. People are just so unhappy right now with America right now and for a very long time.

Bush got a bunch of children killed for nothing at all. Clinton just did a sweep. Even so defenses should have been stronger. It was an inside job and nobody wants to accept that truth. Apple computers leader is an non-heterosexual and people love those computers. Self-fish dumbfounded fools.

People love America and wants to move in the right direction but the whole damn ship has too many selfish people and too many weaklings who are brainwashed.
