    I'd be lieing if I said I can't believe it, but I suppose you don't need a lot of education to work in the American media.

    Reminds me of the time I was connected to an American call centre, and she thought I loved in the providence of Nodascoshida. Well - I think she though Canada was the providence, and Nodascoshida was the town name. She was also confused about how I couldn't give my the zip code without letters.

    I was expecting worse as well...

    Also, I'm pretty sure referring to the Prime Minister as Premier is actually correct.

    It reminds me of when that guy, from The hour Has 22 Minutes, Rick Mercer? Does that "Talking To Americans" and they know nothing about up here. Amazes me.

    I don't believe the USA school curriculum focuses a lot on Geography outside the USA (other than Russia and the other "Red" countries).

    ...and it doesn't help that that most sheeple Americans literally live in a box that pretty much isn't even reality to most of the world.

    I know the senior producer of 22 minutes and I asked him about talking to americans one time.

    Its insane how many of those people blindly believed what Rick Mercer was saying because he was standing there with a microphone and video camera.

    :lol:

    Well, Canada is the prototype for what countries should be in the future. Capitalism mixed with Socialism mixed with common sense.

    Why doesn't everyone see that the American system is highly flawed and is being dismantled right now......right before our eyes? It's been a long time coming. The "Founding Fathers" did not envision the America we know today.

    Once the USA becomes part of the North American Union, it will begin to work again.......but only after it's citizens give up on the "Land of the Free/Home of the Brave/We need guns/"USA!!! USA!!!" thing.....which may take some work (like a complete financial crash or major event of some sort). It's going to take something major to get Americans to use money that isn't "USA money" (the Amero).....but if the alternative is no jobs/no health care/no future, they will buy in. They better, or it's gonna get messy.
