well that report is indicative of earlier in the day, the tide has now turned. thousands of people just streamed past my office headed for the hill.

of course, there is a winter storm coming from, of all places, texas that may dampen the candle lit vigil planned for this evening.

the snow, plus any brave protesters, plus bush heading for the airport in morning rush hour promise to make tommorow morning a real hoot.

Priceless, absolutely priceless.
Dave C, I suggest you do protest since apparently you have nothing better to do with your mind, similar to the majority of the leftist Canadians who know nothing about politics, and waste their time thinking a few scores of idealistic, ignorant Liberal mobs are going to change the world.
I welcomed President Bush in Ottawa today, my boss understood and was generous enough to let me have the morning to stand up to the hundreds of fools who actually think George W. Bush is the main threat to the world, and not Iran, Palestine, North Korea, or several Arab states that want nothing more than Islamic Militant rule over our sinner ways. I was heckled, shoved, threatened by the animals who were there, but I kept smiling, held my placard reading 'Welcome Mr. President!'.
However, and fairly, I cannot fault completely Dave C and the rest of the arrogant, snob-like Canadians, or the worldwide epidemic of terrorist-supporting 'peace' extremists - these are people learning their politics through self-proclaimed 'documentaries' from blatant liars and exploitists like Michael Moore, the leader of stupidity within the Liberal cult.
I followed Politics well before most Canadians thought it was 'cool' to hate the U.S. and their Presidents, fed to the sheep through mainstream media, and I have a certain amount of common sense - the very basic ingredient that Dave C and others of simple-mindedness lack.
Anyway, have fun with your little terror-group - maybe throw some rocks at police, you hero, Dave C - as most Canadians will revel in the image of protesters demonstrating in the shadows of irrelevance - but the little snippy, insignificant voices of whiny, envious notions that Canadians have in general will remain just that - thankfully!

Have a beautiful Day everyone!

- Nicholas

P.S. Cheers to four more years, Mr. President.

Nicholas,

while you may disagree with DaveC, any of the other 'leftist Canadians' myself included, and anyone for that matter, there is no need for the presumptive, tactless and condescending manner with which you portrayed your message.

if there are many people around the world who paint with as broad a brush as you seem to, and i sincerely hope there aren't, you have given Canada a bad name.

Uh, I second that, and not just 'cause DaveC is my sweetie.

Obviously you're new here, disco, but, unlike many political discussion boards, we do not brook those kinds of personal insults. Keep it up and we'll be happy to give you a permanent FYM vacation.

While it may not have been the most tactful statement, it is interesting to see a conservative voice from the north.

certainly. i wish more were here. on the odd day, i wish more existed-but not a lot more.

if you are really curious, and want to see a lot less tact (based on what i have witnessed) check out freedominion.ca, the online home of the disgruntled conservative canadian.

edit: i should clarify, im sure they dont intend to appear disgruntled. they just do.

Well, I'm personally grateful for the protesters - I get to go home early because of the mayhem!

Insulting is more like it coming from this liberal. Even I don't think conservatives "know nothing." Look at nbcrusader! Very smart man indeed And that's just one example of millions of conservatives AND liberals who understand politics, they just have different views.

Everyone that feels the need to protest should go out and let hear his/her voice.

People who tell you, , you should not protest or you are stupid coming forward for your opinion is a danger for democracy

i think nbc was surprised by the existence of such a person. sort of like finding a european nascar fan or a family of 6 living on the dark side of the moon.

that is the extent to which it was 'interesting'.

I knew there had to be conservatives in Canada just as there are liberals in the U.S. I'm sure most of the Canadian conservatives are both more tactful and intelligent, and they help keep their country truly democratic just as the U.S. democracy would be in trouble the day there were no liberal voters.

Many of Bush's opponents were polite. One of the first signs he saw read "Please Leave."


Typical Canadiana, gotta love it.
