You have got to be kidding me!
I cannot believe this country RE-ELECTED this guy.

I'm right there with you, girl.
Of course, as soon as that tape 'emerged' right at election time I thought, "DUH. What better thing to help the monkey win?"
They play on the country's fears every time.

I loathe him. I have heard Toronto is nice.

Bush is a fucking moron. The biggest issue in the election was not the war in Iraq, as one would assume, but the gay marriage rights issue (which tells me that a lot of our fellow Amurcans are fucking morons, too).

We'd be happy to have you.

Let me know if the grass is greener when you get there.
I know, I know -- I'm a bit of a cynical bitch. I don't have much faith in ANY government.

I don't think Canada's any better, as I have heard that their new Prime Minister apparentely idolizes our president.

Try having at least half of your family devoted to the guy. I haven't seen one of my brothers since 2003 because I just don't think I could hold my tongue (not only is he a Bushie, he's a Bible-totin' Bushie). My father and I didn't speak for four months around election time. My mother's sister called her a God-hating Democrat--never mind that their own father would be rolling in his grave if he knew his daughter supported the moron (he was a wonderful man; a Baptist preacher who truly believed in "love thy neighbor" and "judge not lest ye be judged", he was a teacher, and he was a lifelong Southern Democrat).
Sorry...things are a little tender in my family lately.

hey, australia's prime minister is like a mini-bush. whatever bush says, you hear this teeny tiny big eyebrowed echo from australia.
I'm up for mexico - I will be way too drunk there to give a hsit about politics.

I hear ya, Candace. There are 3 of us in my family - my brother, my sister-in-law, and me. The rest are total Bush supporters. My brother and wife are democrats, but I'm independent. It's actually kinda funny for me because my sister-in-law is just as extreme one way as the right-wingers are the other. It's ridiculous how it causes such animosity in the family. Good grief, people. Agree to disagree so we can eat! Please understand that I don't make light of important issues. I just think it's ridiculous that families let this stuff keep them apart.

Toronto rocks. And I think I live close enough to the border to make for dual citizenship.
Where's my toque?

Sara is right. We recently elected "Bush Light" as our PM. It's a minority government but he's in nontheless.
Fun stuff the way our political world is moving, eh?
March 1, 2006 12:19 PM
try... New Zealand! It is pretty, the snow is good, there are hobbits and the PM is a woman. It's a country that doesn't take itself too seriously (global superpower? Nuh. Regional economic power? nuh. Tiny little country at the bottom of the world? Hell YES!!)
I am slowly working on my other half to go there for oh, just a year or so...

I would personally choose New zealand or Australia over Canada. Our new PM is a tosser and is a complete Bush supporter.
ALthough, we have good health care in Canada...and better beer!
March 2, 2006 02:24 AM
The health care in Aus is better than NZ, it's true, but we have a racist, misogynist, conservative dick of a PM who just laps up everything Bush says and regurgitates it for his own policies. And with freaking Tony Abbott in charge of the health system, it won't be long until that's rooted as well.
Can't rate the beer, sorry, I'm allergic (true!), but don't drink Fosters- it's universally recognised as pigswill. Try Boags or Cascade Premium: both from my home sate of Tasmania...
And it seems that if you lived in Aus, you could pretty much just sign up for the Winter Olympics team and they would take you, no proof of ability required! (Our sole women's skeleton competitor's aim was to "just not finish last").
The *commonwealth* games, now that's a different story- although the Kanuks will now kick our ar$es now that Thorpie's out...
