Default Leave it to the Americans...

On the CBC National News tonight, an item told what a New Mexico firm was
doing selling 'Canadian Disguise Kits ** http://tinyurl.com/4r6av

Seems American young people in Europe use these kits to pretend to be
Canadian and therefore welcome.
Smart on the US kids part, but I hope it doesn't put 'real' Canadian youth
in danger.

You are really an excellent good will ambassador for Canada Don.


Why thank you Dennis. That's probably the nicest thing you've ever said to
me....or anyone else for that matter!

Just drive to New Jersey. Or better yet, the Adirondacks. If you have all
your teeth, they'll think you're some sort of god-king.


LOL!!!!!

Later,

Plus, it's cheaper than travelling to England to see bad teeth.

It depends....a couple of years ago I was looking at spending two weeks in
New England of two weeks in Ireland.......it was cheaper going to Ireland.

very different from what our government wants us to believe. As an example,
it wasn't until I was working in Vietnam that I fully realized what a
colossal fraud our government was perpetrating on us.


But that's because you're a Socialist...and the idea of collective
ownership that Communism was promoting was very near to your favored model
of government.

But you learn a lot of good, too. I spent some time in Egypt with
villagers who had nothing, and who were learning to build their own small
homes, start their own small businesses, and improve their community's
sanitary coditions.


Hehehe. And decades later, they're *still* learning (unsuccessfully) about
improving sanitary conditions.

All these people wanted was a slightly
better life for themselves and their children. I found similar aspirations
among the folks I met in El Salvador and Bangladesh.


Statistically, those folks, are probably dead by now...thanks in no part to
their countries' backwards-assed cultures, leading to poor living
conditions, and terrible health care.

I don't know how well the Irish take care of their teeth, but the New
Englanders have some of the worst dentistry that I see. Tons of
undiagnosed periodontal disease, and huge black amalgam fillings that cover
80% of the tooth. When it comes to poor oral hygiene and poor dentistry,
there's not much of a difference between England and *New* England.

You are of course, assuming the harry actually traveled to any of those
places...........wonder if it was in his 36 ft lobsta boat.

That's the only part about visiting Europe, Asia, and/or the Middle East
that I would enjoy. Maybe once we take over the World, and either
assimilate or annihilate any of the dissenters, only then I will visit
Europe, Asia, or the Middle East.



Yeah yeah yeah.....yawn. All talk, all fluff. I'd like to see you talk that
**** in Sicily. Silly little ****.
