OT. Stupid Quebecers!

By doing that, they were probably trying to express their feelings against the present war...
I feel so pathetic and confused!
In Québec, 83% of our exports are going to the US and 60% of our jobs are directly related to US. What were these people thinking
Everybody is against war...I mean, nobody want innocent people to be killed. But my opinion is that tyranny has to be fought... What do you guys think?
During the last days I was considering to move to Australia for professionnal reasons. Now I feel more and more convinced to do it...
What a bad hockey night

If the Nordiques were still in Québec city (the team moved to Colorado in the 90's), I would effectively say Go Nordiques Go!!!

FYI - a recent poll showed that a majority of Canadians support the U.S. military action in Iraq. No-one likes war, but sometimes it is necessary. This is one of those times and we can see that, even if King Jean and his trained seals can't.
Peace Eh - P.Z.

the Nordiques in their last season. They had so much talent
and should have won the cup that year. Joe Sakic is still one of my favorite players.
I don't know why we have so many great looking women up here,but I'm not complaining. They sure keep us warm in the winter.

Bad manners are rampant in spectator sports, have you ever been to Unadilla? People get a little booze in them and look what happens.
I'll be in Montreal in September, you can make it up to me then.

In 1918, then presidential hopeful Theodore Roosevelt had this to say about supporting a president;
"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."
Just something to think about...

you dont need to worry about Joey and Patty!!! The rare mountain air was a good change for them. It even got them a couple of lord stanleys cups!!! I was never even into hockey until the team got here!! Now I am an ardent fan of the sport!! Too bad I didnt figure this out at around 5yrs old!! the fun I could have had!!!
I can remember sitting in the woods around the campfire, after a great day of pounding through the woods, with the final game turned up, screaming for Ray to win his first cup! Loving every minute of the devils (formerly known as the the Colorado Rockies) takeing a whoopin!!!

The U.S. doesn't attack countries for believing in different politics or religion or even for being so..."French" (for me that is reason enough!). By "French", I am refering here to the tiresome attitude, not the ancestry. It is my observation from the many times I have traveled to Montreal and Quebec City that more than a few folks there consider themselves to be subjects of France as opposed to citizens of Canada. So be it. It is their loss, for Canada is a far greater nation in my estimation.
I learned something from my "poor man's business trips" to North American France: It was as close as I ever need to come to actually visiting France. The next time Germany wants to occupy Paris, they are welcome to it, and Canada will probably toss in Quebec for free. Crossing over into Ontario felt like leaving the Soviet bloc must have not so very long ago.
If the rest of Europe hadn't been so "tolerant" and quick to appease Hitler-Hussein (France especially), a lot of American blood would not be languishing in the soil of France. Great Britain certainly learned from Neville Chamberlain's error in this regard, and are even now fighting and dying to prevent a recurrence.
The sacrifices made were for nothing if the world did not learn a lesson from that. Shame on France and the "French" (wherever they actually live) for forgetting so easily. Shame on our own citizens who do the same. A few great nations, (read: a great many very great individual soldiers), are doing the dirty work of protecting them yet again, and receiving the usual "French thank-you".
I have no more use for hyphenated Canadians than I do for hyphenated Americans. (Did it ever strike anyone else as rather selfish of United States citizens to claim the term 'American' to the exclusivity of our two fellow North American neighbors, or even those in the South American continent? If ever a hyphen was justified, that would be it. i.e.> U.S.-American, Canadian-American, Mexican-American, Columbian-American, Argentinian-American, etc.).
Hyphen-dependent folks (due to where some or all of their ancestors came from and/or where they themselves would not want to return) may well feel the same about me for refusing to refer to myself at every (any) opportunity as a Scotch-Irish-German-French-(and whatever else was willing and able and available in the heat of the moment)-American mutt. Believe in something, quit sitting on the genetic fence and be proud of what you are and where you are or just leave.
More importantly, show some respect for those with the courage to fight and die for the sake of your convictions.

I was a little worried that Montreal was going to deal the death blow to the islanders.....What Justice....

This whole "war" concept really hit home for me a couple months ago when my buddy's young son, who I helped raise from a pup, called to ask if he could borrow my AR-15A2 and a few hundred rounds. He was very serious... like his life depended on it. Now it truly might.
He is in a reserve unit and is over there now I believe. He knew he would be going, like it or not, and was very concerned with his marksmanship and the fact that his training simply did not afford him the confidence of adequate rifle practice. It was suddenly THE most important thing to him... I hope he wore the barrel out now. Imagine, a country boy who did not get to practice with the military M-16 enough to trust his life to his skill, now scrambling for some practice time...
As I drove my semi all of last night listening to the radio, I could not help but worry about him. When the reporters finally had something 'meaty' to report, it was about a helicopter full of such young men that had crashed... Was he in it? All night I wondered... I can't imagine the agony endured every minute by the loved ones of our soldiers over there. Mine is just a small taste, I'm sure.
So, at least for the time being, any "boo'ing" done had best be kept out of my fist-range. These are scared kids over there with the courage to set that fear aside and the courage to do what is necessary. Boo'ing from the safety of a sporting event or picket line in a free country; well ... The UN sucks. The cowards in opposition on the "security council" suck. The cowards "boo'ing" suck.
