I Love Me Some Canadians

But crying?

Dear President Obama, Like most Canadians I rooted for you madly and cried when you were elected President-of-The-World. So far, I think you’ve been a great leader, reaching out to the whole planet.

Most Canadians cried when Obama was elected? Really? Seriously? Things were that bad for you guys up there when Bush was in charge? I had no idea.

Of course things are evidently no better and maybe getting worse even with their idol in charge.

On June 1, you will officially defend the “world’s longest undefended border,” a border I’ve crossed hundreds of times. From now on, we Canadians need passports to enter the U.S., a major hassle for truckdrivers, boaters and shmoes like me who can no longer cross to buy cheap Polo shirts without remembering to pack passports for the whole family.

Life’s tough indeed if you have to pack a passport to get a cheap Polo shirt.  Then again, life’s tough for any guy still wearing Polo shirts in 2009.

Still, I’m not feeling too sorry for them even though they seem to be threatening to keep our young drunk Americans.

This will also end a long U.S.-Canada tradition – the army of under- 21 U.S. college students who pour into Canada for their first legal drinking binge. Many won’t bother to get the passports they’ll need to get back into the States – so we may have to keep them.

Hey, this is a good thing. You guys can just keep them for a few hours until they sober up and can drive safely on our American roads.

Truth be told the real worry of most Canadians is probably the fact that it will be harder for them to sneak across the border to  get immediate medical  treatment at an American hospital instead of waiting years for it through the Canadian health care system.

At least until our own national health care is passed and we are in equal misery.

    You hit that nail square on. And guy can’t order cheap Polo shirts online?

    AND what’s wrong with guys’ wearing Polo shirts, in 2009??? You stepped in it, buddy! 😮

    • I didn’t wear them when they were cool, so maybe I don’t understand the attraction.
