Skip to comments.No, Canada! (United States of Canada vs. Jesusland)

You have probably heard the idle chatter: ''I'm thinking of moving to Canada." You may have received the JPEG Sent 'Round the World, labeling the northern part of North America -- the right-thinking part, as liberals would have it -- as the United States of Canada, and the pro-Bush leaning ''red" US states as Jesusland
It sounds so alluring. Good beer. Cheap Viagra. Hardly any crime. Friendly, if somewhat ineffectual, people. Terrific, if underappreciated, novelists. (This means you, Rohinton Mistry.) Secure borders, courtesy of the US Department of Defense.
But before you pack, consider this: There are plenty of reasons not to move to Canada. Let me count the ways.
1. They don't really want you. Canada is full of losers like you. If you're really rich, or a brain surgeon, maybe. But if you are, say, a newspaper reporter, be prepared to wait at least a year just to live there legally, and several more years to become a citizen.
If you have some special qualifications, like a PhD, plus a lot of work experience, and if you are under 50, you have a better chance of crashing the gates of Snow Mexico. Or if you're loaded. That's right. If you have a net worth of $800,000 Canadian or more, and are willing to invest $400,000 of it in Canada, come on in! And you thought George Bush's America was a plutocracy. . . . Think again.

Seen that graphic, but can anyone post it for those who might not have?
Not secure from Islamists. In fact, due to their lax immigration laws, that place is teeming with them.
On the contrary. Watching the left disintegrate like this brings a great warmth to my heart.
A good article-----let them go to Canada and see how they like it.
Canadian beer is way overrated.
Well, there's always Cuba -- Fidel is always looking for a few good cane-pickers -- and their music is good!
Isn't it Curling?? With the brooms and stones?
That's not it. I'll go see if any of those nuts at DU has posted it recently.
I remember SCTV's "Monday Night Curling" sketch with John Candy -- I thought it had to be a joke (as I had first thought Tiny Tim was Dick Martin in drag). How wrong I was.
Someone needs to remake that map showing just the city states joining up with canada.
Don't discourage them!!! Let them go, just don't let them back!
Why is the Boston paper trying to discourage them? If they are one of the "unwanteds" without big bucks, pack up the SUV and drive on over and become an illegal. If you get caught, demand that the Canadian gov't give you welfare and a court date before an immigration judge to appear in a year or so just like they do all those people who de-plane with no ID. Then if you show up in court, tell the judge you must be permitted to stay because the people from Jesusland will get you if he sends you home. That should do it.
Recently Budweiser became the number one beer in Canuck land.
They'll have to leave because Im not leaving my "blue state" because people in Detroit don't like the president.
That's it. And to think, I was looking for it in that cesspool known as DU. You do NOT want to go over there right now.
