      Indeed, under 50% of USA voters who voted in 2016 voted for Donald. So your Canadian Overlords will be merciful, I suspect, and spare the innocent

      Here it is night time and I am cooking some lentils, chickpeas, vegetables, garlic, chilli, curry powder, and coconut milk in a large container to be dinner and lunch and probably a second dinner and lunch served with Basmati rice.

      I liked Canada when I visited Toronto and Vancouver in 2000 and 2001. It was beautiful and the people very friendly and kind. And since I was living in the USA at that time the similarity in culture between Canadians and Australians was a very welcome thing. It is always nice to fee at home when one is overseas. I regularly watch Canadian news The National is the main program that I watch. And I also fairly regularly watch USA PBS News Hour. So I make an effort to keep informed about that part of the world. I also watch French and German news and occasional Qatar news. All very helpful when one wants some alternate views for the days happenings. I have the good fortune to be retired so I can view these things on my computer as YouTube videos and it is very convenient.

      Long live the revolution!
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      Those Canadians sure do love warm climates. The last few times my wife and I were in LatoAmerica (Panama y Mexico) there were as many if not more Canadian than American tourists.

      Yes indeed, they are heading south - assisted by the inexorable forces of gravity - to impose kindness and politeness on all who are in their path. So, beware, your country is in their path!

      I'm with you, but we have to remember that there are people who post primarily in order to get under everyone else's skin, not because they have anything important to say.

      Beware of gifts from folk who may have their own agenda that may not be anything like your own.

      Not that that meant anything. After talking to a couple of Canadians on a few of their threads, I reliked the page.

      There is a reason that 95% of Canadians live within 100 miles of the US...

      Fact Check! about 87.4% of Canadians live within 100 miles / 160 km of the border with the USA.

      Well, the reason for the disparity is that about 8% of them refuse to be counted, saying "You call this living???"
