The only thing I DONT agree with is same-sex marriages. nothing against gays, but thats something that were never gonna live down. As the only smart thing P Bush has said " a marriage is between a man and a woman". Nuff said

I think its great canada is actually starting to show that we are are not push over versions of americans. Who cares what america thinks of us. They still will buy boat loads of natural resources from us. Hopefully our government will continue they way it has just started to and refuse to allow the states to control us anymore. we have the power (pun intended) its time for us to step to the plate and use it for once

Same sex marriage used to be legal in vegas, but the moral minority had their way.

Religion and State should be sepperate. Trudeau said it best, "The state has no business in the bedrooms of the nation."

At the risk of joining in a thread that could go horribly wrong:

What difference does it make to ANYONE else what people decide to do with their lives... ? If it's their private business, then that's that. Who CARES!!!

I really respect Canada for letting same sex marriages become legal. I hope the US follows suit sometime in the future. Probably not the near future, because Bush would never let something like that happen. What a shame.

Nice article I couldnt help but laugh when I read.....

my theory is that the surge in pot-smoking has rendered most criminals too relaxed to commit violent crimes. They're probably more focused on shoplifting boxes of Ho-Hos from convenience stores.

The problem with the same sex marriages is for the most part,religious. Thats why many people have found it difficult to accept. I personally could care care less as to what they do. I personally believe that a true marriage is between a man and woman but if the same sex gets married, I guess that would be their thing.

The one thing the government should do is mind their own biz...keep to what they do best(rip the people off)....Personally, I don't care what other people do....never did, never will.....If anyone thinks the Government or the Religious Right really cares about your welfare- then you deserve the abuse you get...hahaha on you.

Here's what the author had to say when I emailed her:

Well, JB, you didn't understand it. It's satire. That's why it seems
contradictory; through much of it, I'm saying things I don't mean, adopting
the attitudes of ignorant right-wing Americans precisely to demonstrate how
foolish they are, using ridiculously extreme language that no responsible
journalist would use. I am praising Canada. I save my sincere feelings to
drive the point home at the end.

It got into print because my editors recognize irony.

Hes the same as everyone else, he only came out last year, why shouldnt he be allowed to be happy? I dont understand why some people think its such a huge deal? it doesnt affect them
