The "Messiah" is coming to Canada?
I'm feint and week in the knees...
Oh my Gosh! Salvation is upon us!
Ok everybody get busy and clean up the country!
We don't want to make a bad impression now do we?

Who cares?

JC, why so cynical? Becoming president requires all sorts of unusual skills. Like megalomania, lying, stealing, dillusion etc. Not everyone can have all of these at once you know.

You're right. I don't know what came over me.
I should probably just relax, wash my robes and prepare to flagellate myself before the anointed one. ;)

Is his excellency going to Ottawa
or is he actually visiting Canada ?

ahh- the days when Mulroney and Regan would sing songs together after signing multi billion dollar trade deals, and their first ladies would lunch with poor people.. even the Bushes were real pals..

anyways, lets welcome the O man with all the Mounties we can muster-
How about a fly by with some fighter jets ?
Forget the Blue Angels at county fairs doing a few barrel rolls - lets have some sky streak action and red and white chem trails

It will be good to see him, as it was for every US president. He should be greeted warmly. Of course the spoiled rotten privileged interests of Ontario won't - they're never EVER happy with anything, least of all a non-white in a position of authority.

Sorry for the now triple OT post,but go to the site,make your voice known.

Pike, you are funny. I guess it's his white half that is also spoiled rotten and privileged. So he should be warmly greeted by everyone, unless only half of him is allowed in.

Only rich white Anglo-Saxon protestants with deep multi-generation pedigrees and who tow the line are accepted in Ontario. No others even need consider themselves human. That's the Toronto way. Obama, a biracial man from outside of Ontario, will never be truly accepted in fascist Ontario.

Oh yeah - it's been on decade since Ontario disgraced itself forever when its idiot mayor called in the army to shovel snow. And some of you defend him. You people are as pathetic, lazy and weak as he is. For shame. I don't see why Alberta should secede anymore - it's Ontario that is the problem. Expel them.

You are interesting for sure Pike. And I agree with you about some things about Ontario. But you say some things that cause people to discount you entirely. Too bad, cause some of it is good.
