Is this how you start to direct thinking towards military action?

Make sure your afraid to leave your house--nothing sells like good ole fear

Pinpoint a reason to act--ya know like wmd's or regime change or housing terror

But Canada??---ya rough bunch---actually this one is specific---there's advisories worldwide

So feel safer under current conditions??

    Americans are very much at risk...from good food, too much wine, hot women...

    That "alert" is just CYA boilerplate.

    OTOH, one should bear in mind that the last successful invasion of These United States was by a bunch of rabid wild-eyed Canadian Viet Cong supporters who ran across a bridge (around Vancouver?) to stage an anti-war protest. However, being Canadian, they politely walked back North once the peaceful protest was over.

    Still, ya can't be too careful. :)

    As nice as Montreal is, I like Quebec more, except for the snarky waiters who pretend not to speak English. Ironic, since the French they speak would barely pass muster in Paris.

    I felt like the Quebecois were a lot more standoffish than Parisians. And yeah, I went with a Native French speaker (Tippy) and they all commented on how good his French was.

    Also Quebec has something Paris doesn't have: French Rednecks in big trucks. That's sorta weird to experience.

  • BushartBushart Senior Member Posts: 1,793 Senior Member

    It's a well known documented fact---that to get those women as hot as they are

    They adhere to a strict diet of...Poutine...maple syrup....Molson Export....and finally..2nd hand cigarette smoke

    Hey don't hate the player..

    The good news for those Americans traveling to Paris, Rome and all points near and far. . . thanks to China's economic boom, we aren't the world's A-holes anymore.

  • BushartBushart Senior Member Posts: 1,793 Senior Member

    My son took leave a while back---Christmas in Rome---New Years in Paris

    Absolutely loved Rome

  • sherbsherb Senior Member Posts: 2,162 Senior Member

    I don't know who provides fire and EMS services for Vatican city. I assume they have some MOU worked out with the city of Rome, but who knows. All I know is that the fire chief has to be sweating bullets everyday with the amount of people crammed into the Vatican museum.

    The Louvre is bigger and more user friendly. Its also easier to get in and out of.

  • BushartBushart Senior Member Posts: 1,793 Senior Member

    Funny thing---He got me a Cross and chain from the Vatican and Famous paintings fridge magnets from the Louvre

    So ya hit em both
    They also went to Florence--picked me up a nice watercolor set in a wooden display

    My wife lived in Italy with her ex, a Navy doc, in the '70s., first near Rome, then in Gaeta, near Naples when the Flagship moved there. In those days you just drove and parked anywhere. These days parking is a royal pain anywhere in almost any large city, so when we've been to Italy we only pick up a rental car when leaving a city for the countryside, and trains between major cities.

    In Rome, we've discovered the best way for us is to stay in an outlying residential neighborhood around the Villa Borghese and take a cab down to the ancient city attractions. It's worth the $40 r/t for the peace and quiet, and the far less expensive but equally good or better restaurants.

    Yes they took the train to Florence
    But they stayed in a nice hotel In Rome--and walked
    And Yes---He goes on and on about the food

    They got engaged in Rome so gladiators may have spoiled the mood

    Unless, you know, they're into that sort of thing. It's all good, right?

    Canadians aren't great at the movie references.

    Its us Gen-Xers that specialize in that.

    Can a Canadian be both a Canuck and a baby boomer? Is that just a U.S. thing?
