your comments on this. I doubt that Americans, as-a-whole, are as polite and complacent as the Canadians, as-a-whole. I would think that Americans would be stashing their weapons and lying to 'authorities' rather than registering them.
As far as Amerikan lands being turned over to the Chinese, I suggest we all take a much harder look at Iceland and how they solved their debt problems. The people decided the debt was owed by the bankers, NOT the taxpayers.
