This. (I've gotten used to Facebook and I keep looking for the "Like" button. I "Like" this.)

I like that he's running for entertainment also. But it seems madness to vote for anyone whose contribution to the race is entertainment. We don't need an Entertainer in Chief. It's bad enough that charisma plays such an outsize role in who we tend to vote for.

Shit, I can't imagine you do anything with measurements if you honestly think that's a bad thing.

I'll be in Canada for a few weeks this summer and I'm already annoyed with this "kilometers" business.

Of course! Also Rush Limbaugh called some girl a "slut" on his radio show because she wanted birth control. The GOP and social issues, that's one too many elephants in the room (all Chris Christie jokes aside).

It was Lincoln Chafee who said it. In the long run its probably a good idea. But there are much more pressing concerns in this country than switching to metric. Not sure if it's a platform idea.

And Lucky7 I have a Bachelor of Science where everything was calculated in metric. Assuming I'm some sort of backwoods imbecile because I'm conservative is judge mental. Grow up.

In what? Because that makes your comments look even sillier. I didn't think you were some backwoods imbecile because you're conservative. I thought it because you scoffed at a completely logical idea without any justification.

And please don't tell me to grow up. Open your eyes, I'm one of how many people who said something?

Managing to tag up everywhere I have family (Banff aside). What could honestly bring someone to Saskatoon though, otherwise? Do you have family there?

Go up to Jasper if you can/have time. It is much better than Banff (IMO) and hardly any tourists by comparison.

Others said something, but many of your posts have a vein of condescension that can rub people the wrong way. During your Libertarian argument with BobSaget77 you blew off an interjection by me, as if you if you were the walking encyclopedia on all things. Then you tell me to check the dictionary over a word. Even though I'm on the opposite side of many on this board I've learned to be civil and even joke around with people I completely disagree with.

And yes, the metric system is superior in every way. But in the political world Chafee will jokingly be called "The metric man". It will be an albatross around his neck that will impede him presenting his other views. That's why I think its bad politics.

You posted a rather holier than thou comment. And you scoffed at a word and chose to use a synonym. Your condescension was met with condescension.

Where did Lincoln Chafee come into this? You were calling Bernie Sanders a joke over it. And I don't see how this is an albatross to any candidate. That only depends upon where they rank it in importance. For example, Newt Gingrich had difficulty (wrongfully so) over making a "lunar base." He was mocked over that, but the issue wasn't the idea or how important he saw it as. It was the failure to articulate it. It made him look foolish.

No family, but how can I not go to a place called Saskatoon? I like going to odd places.

We might get up to Jasper. We've always wanted to see Banff. I might decide that Jasper's on the way from Calgary to Edmonton.

By that logic, you owe Medicine Hat and Moose Jaw a visit.
