Comment: I made the move...

(See in situ)


I made the move...

to avoid the tyranny that the USA has become...Here is what have learned...
I miss the states every minute of every day...But I will try to stick to your questions, and give you MY opinion of things here...FYI I live in the suburbs of Vancouver...
Why do you feel safer in a non-USA city than a major USA city? Because it is safer in other 1st world countries than in the states (if you call Canada 1st world LOL)

What is the USA doing wrong that Canada is doing right? That is a complicated question...Here are some of my thoughts...
1.
Canada uses the US military for protection, this frees up a lot of money for social programs...The effects are infinite.
2.
Canada doesn't have ridiculous penalties for drug offenses...Therefore freeing up resources to actually go after violent criminals...
3.
Canada's media doesn't promote violence between races and it doesn't point out the differences between groups, causing inter-group fighting...I.E. Race wars, sexism, religious persecution, fake left-right paradigm, etc...(I could be wrong on the left right-thing)
4.
Whatever the ailments that have caused the problems plaguing the African-American community in the USA they don't have those problems...
5.
Canada never allowed Government officials to do to a group of citizens what our Government did to the black community in the states (see Iran Contra and Ollie North) and all the problems this can cause..
This is just a few ideas I have to answer your question...
Do you want to live in BC? Here is what I have learned...NO WAY!
Reasons:
The food here sucks!!!!!! I would kill for a Lorenzo and Sons slice or a Jim's cheese steak...
The weather here sucks!!!!!! It rains constantly, although the summer is nice...Both weeks of it...
It is super expensive...equal to Manhattan...
As American's we consider this place communist...
They have a 1 company car insurance company called ICBC , no free market competition, average cost is $150 a month...there are other controlling companies that are just the same...Something called the Crown Corporation....Google it...
They have the most expensive "free" health care...And as a foreigner you don't get any of it...Plus its second rate and I was almost killed by my Dr. after I gave him $1200 for a treatment...A quick story...I needed an MRI so I payed 50 dollars CAD to go to a quick clinic and get a script for an MRI...Then I called for an MRI appointment and they said no problem, I can get you in in 7 months...So I said, oh no I am paying cash, and the lady asked me if tomorrow at 9 am would work...I said no I can't be there till 2pm and she said ok perfect we will see you then....$1300
So for the "free" health care they still pay $600 a year and they get taxed to death on top of that...And 95% of the Canadians will tell you to your face it's free...
And most Canadians have this weird, subtle, and ignorant blind hatred for the States...Yet they won't admit it...
Last thing...They have a Neo-con running their country...PM Harper
Ok now I have bashed Canada and I could go on forever...So I am gong to be fair and do a shotgun blast of good things about Canada:
Mild summer days
Good recycling (they charge you if you create too much trash COMMIES)
No private prisons
Canada has the 4th most guns per capita in the world (USA is 3rd)
Nice cops
No TSA
No FEMA Camps
Cheap weed (mediocre quality def. not Cali) and people smoke it everywhere
Nice people...
It's easy to learn Chinese LOL
Snow boarding!!! Right in town.
Surfing 5 hours away
In closing the best way to describe BC Canada is to say it is like the states in the early 80's, some of that is good and some is bad...there is about 20% of the things we have on the shelves, the food sucks but probably has a few less chems in it, you will see cars you hadn't seen in years, there are kids playing in the streets, neighbors talk to each other in some communities, the parks are nice, people have been lulled to sleep by their's and our media. ....Finally; I am here and I am staying....Why? Because my daughter will not be vaccinated, or groped, or re-educated, or robbed in another election...Period...I will take the pros and cons I have listed over what I left any day...And when the rEVOLution takes over I am coming home to help rebuild my country with a strong minded daughter to carry on my name...

Bad food, worse weather, please rEVOLution the states so I can bring my family back home!
Rosa Koire for for President!
