    My parents moved from Seattle to Vancouver

    because my mom wanted to raise kids away from all the bigoted religious nuts they encountered on a daily basis. Sure, you can't avoid them completely, but America is packed with them.

    How are you managing

    since the penny was taken out of circulation? I am still not used to the rounding to the nearest 5¢ and I always feel like a winner when the change coming back to me is rounded upwards. I saved a few (hundred) pennies as keepsakes.

    Our nation's capital,

    mere hours away, was the scene of violence today. I was working in Michigan on 9/11, and all I could think of was getting back home to where things like this didn't happen. Sadly, as a country envied by a lot of the world, we have joined the ranks where this occurs. Fear is...

    Why do Americans think Canadians are weak?

    Because we don't feel the need to participate in every single ******* war that comes along. We don't feel the need to have a bloated military budget to be safe, because we don't have enemies. What Americans don't understand is that they aren't the policemen of the world; they're...
