    I'll take you up on that, social security is nothing more than a Ponzi scheme. I hope somebody got some security out of it but it's been raped so bad I'll be on the losing end of that beat stick when my time to draw comes around. So screw social security. Give me my money and let me invest it. It least I have a chance to make money on it. They are just stealing it from me

    At the risk of raining on everyone's parade, our healthcare system is terrible up here. Because it's a single payer system, the government dictates what is covered and what isn't. It's provincially regulated so the rules change depending on which province you're from.

    I pay in taxes for healthcare, yet more things are delisted every year. I pay for my medical review. I pay for any prescriptions. I won't pay if I break my leg, but it'll take 8 hours of waiting before I see a doctor to get a cast and crutches.

    And if you need life-saving surgery? Get in line. A doctor will tell you that you have 6 months to live unless you get surgery, but you can't get the surgery for 9 months because you have to wait in line. Canadians were coming to the US to get life saving surgery done at cost to them, something that isn't allowed under a single payer system.

    I'm not saying that I know what the solution is, but letting the government run ANYTHING is a bad idea.

    I saw a Canadian and a citizen from the US arguing over somthing that I never thought about before - The Canadian said he was an American since he was from North America. Just like an Asian is from Asia an European is from Europe and so on and so on....

    Do you think of yourself as an American if you are a native Canadian?

    We'll even throw in Drake. And Celine Dion.

    If the British renounced the British crown, I don't think anyone would notice. Nevermind us. It's been a very long time since the Queen's involvement in ruling the British Empire was actually relevant, and nowadays it's largely a traditional formality.

    A lot of border towns are full of Canadian appointments for tests. I have a friend who's dad had brutal knee pain. 5 month wait for an MRI. Two hour drive south, 400 bucks later, MRI in hand the next day.

    Ceremonial or not, it is a sign of the old world oppression.
