Apparently, somebody in the Canadian diplomatic service doesn't want Obama as President and had leaked a private diplomatic conversation to the public.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.

I say, screw Iraq. Lets invade meddling Canada. I hear Wal-Mart is looking for extra parking spaces.

We'll make everyone from Ontario on west speak French, just out of spite. Shut down all the Tim Horton's. And make them watch the 24-hour Dudley Doo-Right Channel.

But first, we'll send Celine Dion back on a pike.

_________________________ CP a few years back, I was taking a break out near the loading docks where I worked. While sitting at the picnic table under the trees. A canadian trucker walked up and asked if he could sit in the shade. Grab a bench was the general reply from all present.

Many conversations ensued mostly about screwed up companies that we had worked for. Then he said "Know what NAFTA stands for?" Nope was the reply. "Well NAFTA is an acronim for { No American Factories Taking Applications }" This of course was greeted by howls of laughter.

NAFTA = No American Factories Taking Applications

It does appear that is and was the case.

One should ask, why is the USA meddling in *everyone's* politics?

CP: I'm totally with you on the Celine Dion thing, but shutting down Tim's would violate Geneva conventions.

I have to side with the Canadians on this one. Trying to weasel out of treaties with an ally is bad enough, but threatening to renegotiate a treaty with an oil-rich ally now is just plain stupid. I wouldn't mind seeing NAFTA simplified, it's hundreds of pages of gobbledygook, but that's not what Obama or Hillary appear to have in mind.

First,

We won't have George W. Bush lead the invasion.

Second I think we have a better plan this time.

We happen to have very good relations to a CAPTAIN in the Canadian services. And we are currently in negotiations to BUY him for two cases of Labatt's.

Next, me and Mo_Man are going to target the center of all Canadian Culture: The Windsor Ballet.


Since Canadians fancy themselves as "Culture Monkeys" we will have them by the balls.

This plan will come off without a hitch.

Just make sure your signs are both in French and English if you don't want to run afoul of the Ontario Provincial Police!

_______________________ The Blue Water Bridge at Port Huron/Sarnia is the best location, because 130 garbage trucks a day carry trash from the London area to land fills in Genesee and Shiawassee Counties. I don't think they'll notice a big tractor pulling a liquid Manure fertilizer spreader. Even the smell won't tip them off, and the dogs will want to roll in it, at least all of the farm dogs around here do once we get it spread, God it stinks.

________________________ Xanthine I had two skids of Urea Nitrate that went hard in the bags, That is tough to use its almost like cement. So when I mentioned it the brothers They have a big dairy herd, they said to bring it down cut off the bags ant throw it in the big tank. This is one huge septic tank, must be two or three million gallons in there.

So now I am getting down to crunch time either put it on the field before the thaw or wait until plowing time. If it was human waste it would be bio haz. but not cow poop. You know when I put up those "ORGANIC FERTILIZER USED ON THESE FIELDS" signs even the snow mobilelers stopped trespassing.
