    I think we need stun guns some nights around this city.

    Yup, I’d sooner be a Canadian than American.
    But, our value of the state over the individual, while having merit to a certain point, is overdone in Canada to the point that some indivduals don’t attempt to look after themselves. Some of them should be shipped south of the border.
    When I look at the American worship of their military system, I shudder. I worry that Steve is bringing us a little closer to that way of thinking.
    So, what do Canadians have to “brag” about?
    -Mounties who know how to use Tasers just for fun?
    -Plenty of fat, overfed and overweight persons just like in the States.
    -Municipal politicians who fret about how close our compost pile is to the fence.
    -Too many too highly paid public servants while some taxpayers can hardly make ends meet.

    I’m sure some of you can come up with plenty of things that make you a little less proud to be Canadian.
    And, of course those of you who benefit by our faults will like things just the way they are.

    Facetious, you are right in that we value the state over the individual. That’s one area where I think our friends have it over us.
    That type of ‘American style thinking’ of course would get us nowhere in Canada.
    As I said, they see government as intrusive while we see it as some perverse kind of savior.
    Anyway, very pithy comments.
