Are you americans offended that our PM wont be at the funeral

Will you americans be offended that our canadian prime minister won't be "representing" us at reagan's funeral friday? The one who will represent us there is the Governal General(she represents the queen when she can't be there) Adrienne Clarkson. I am just very mad that he won't be there to represent us like he should as our current leader. are you

Brian Mulroney is going to be there, even though he's a little shit. Besides it's not like the American's want us to be there, did you see the front page of the Globe and Mail today?

Ok...

Americans only care about making fun of Canadians.

Seriously... run a survey asking Americans if they even know who the PM of Canada is.

Please note, however, that I don't share this opinion. I live very close to Canada, and go there often. Beautiful place.

From what I know about some American students, a lot of them don't list geography as one of their most important subjects. Hell, when I was in NYC, one of the questions I was asked was "oh you're from Australia right? Which city? Sydney or New Zealand"?

And if you must insist on America's "ignorance", Canada is still their no.1 trading partner, so throw away all the anti-Canada cliches, and their northern neighbour still holds a special place in their hearts. God bless America

Exclamation

I am not offended. If Reagan was the sitting president, that would be a differnt story. Plus, Canada is sending someone and the former PM is coming, so I don't know what the fuss is about.

thats not because americans dont care about canada that because americans are :retard: most dont even know who their local reps are. many dont even know who the vice pres is.

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

Some Americans will care ie. Bill O'Reilly and others won't. America is a large country with many diverse ideas and opinions concerning Ronald Ragan so it has hard to say if people will be offended or not.

Bill O'Reilly would make a big deal out of Ludacris going to a basketball game he is so petty.

Normally a head of state is considered higher than a head of government and as the Governor General is the Canadians' highest representative of state, it should be seen as more prestigious to send her than the PM. Frankly, I wish all countries would send someone who's unemployed or homeless to these ceremonies - they'd get a good meal and be well-treated and these overpaid ceremonial heads could do something more useful to society than sit in a buidling and stare at a wooden box with a corpse inside of it.

Traits Gandhi considered the most spiritually perilous to humanity.
*Wealth without Work * Pleasure without Conscience

*Science without Humanity *Knowledge without Character

*Politics without Principle *Commerce without Morality

*Worship without Sacrifice

Actually I dont care if Canada PM is not there....I wish they would let Regan rest in peace....he's been flooded in the media the past few days. God bless Regan and his family though....and BTW...who said Americans dont like Canadians? I think we have a good relationship with Canada...and there are a lot of Canadians that come to our country and make a good living ( Tom Green, Deborah Cox, and many more) Right now our biggest problem is Iraq......*and I wish that would end peacefully and FAST!*

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!
