Looking north for power (Patrice Hill, November 27, 2005, THE WASHINGTON TIMES)

Americans thirsty for fuel are looking to Canada, which stands ready to capitalize on its historic role as the United States' leading supplier of energy.

You can't let our national energy security rest on such an unstable state.

Particularly so when they are taking orders from the extraterrestials.

There's also the small matter of the Strategic Lobster Reserve in the Atlantic.

And they can't even protect their waterways.

But the Canadians are in the process of selling their oil and mineral reserves to China.

Far be it from me to deprive Green Mountain Boy and General Schwartz (ret'd) of any grounds for fulfilling their historic mission, but hasn't the objection always been that we are too boring and stable?

No, it's that when your social system collapses we're going to be inundated with guys wearing dark socks with their shorts.

Oh well, if you're going to cite just war theory against me...

I thought I was going to be the Great Kahn. BTW, it will not take a general officer to finish this business. I would estimate that a staff sgt. and a troop of girl scouts could do it.

Being "inundated with guys wearing dark socks with their shorts" is a good description of large parts of Central Florida this time of year. Like the goose the country is named after, it's an annual migration back and forth. They put in that appearance up north only to keep the benefits flowing, otherwise, like a number of the same goose, they'd hang around golf courses year round.

(Or is the country named after a tire company. It's hard to tell...)

And if the LIEberals win the upcoming election and try to fleece the province again like they did in the 1970's, this will come to pass sooner than anyone thinks.

Yukon and Alberta look south! Your liberation is at hand!
