I love Caniadians. To be so close, yet so very far away.

Just a few examples of valueless American culture.

Music (form Jazz and blues to rock to Cajun)
Art (From Warhol to Chris Burden)
Sports (from Skateboarding to Football)
Fast Food (From Mickey D's to Puck's Pizza)

I could go on but the list is way too long...

It is so funny to listen to this. How America is perceived as this
Imperialistic empire when in fact we are the only major country that is
pretty backwards in our imperialism. We have never really set out to
conquer any foreign lands. But of course you knew that already didn't you.
