Samizdat: Notez from Deepest Soviet Canuckistan
You think George Bush is stupid? Look northward, America, look
Since 1993 we've been graced with Jean Chretien.
It is impossible to convey how tone-deaf this moron is, but I'll
give an example:
A few years ago, the Dutch found the remains of a Canadian
soldier in a bog and ID'd him from his dog tags.
The military wanted to send over a full burial party but the
government vetoed that. It'd pay for four (4) soldiers, but that
was it. Private sponsors eventually kicked in the money and the
poor boy finally got the funeral he deserved.
When the Opposition raised the issue, the PM stood up in the
House of Commons and said (well, I paraphrase):
"You know, there wasn't too much left of him, so the coffin
would have been light."
Like I said, I paraphrased it, but that was the essence of what
George Bush is stupid? Look northward, America, look north.
The grandiose fool is now trying to cram the Kyoto Accord down
our throat, mainly, it seems, because he wants to build his
"legacy." Some legacy. An utterly corrupt machine politician
who drags the country with him into his grave.
I predict that if the Kyoto Accord is implemented, Alberta will
be petitioning to join the United States within the decade.
We've already seen Trudeau destroy our economy with the National
It's not going to happen again.
Look northward, America, look north. We're bigger than France
and twice as nice. Good skiing, too.
We also have the Athabaska Tar Sands, which contains an
estimated 2 trillion barrels of oil, of which about 500 bbls are
recoverable with present technology. By contrast, Saudi
Arabia's proven reserves are 280 bbl.
Obviously extra refining is involved, because you have to shake
the oil out of the bitumen and otherwise process it, but as long
as the price remains at $21 (US) per barrel and above it's
viable. (Conventional exploration eats up $7 per barrel.
Whereas with Athabaska there's no exploration. We know where it
is, a big sticky mess.)
Western separatism is a different creature than Quebec's. The
Quebec variety is top-down: Intellectuals, media and
politicians. In the West, it's grassroots: Farmers, small
business owners, and the guy who sleeps in his truck outside Ft.
McMurray while waiting to get a spot in Syncrude's barracks.
These people are primed to explode, and I've never heard such
Look northward, America, look north.
If it's true that you cowardly Yanks only fight for oil, why not
take us on?
Send in the Marines and I think you could depend on Albertans to
secure your eastern flank.
