Subject: RE: BS: Has Americanism Spread THIS far?
Mrrzy, Canadians are generally, very peaceful and orderly. About the only thing they do riot about is hockey. But they certainly do riot over hockey and it has nothing to do with the USA. I'm not sure why they do that. I have never felt the urge. But I suspect it is that in a very reserved society, If a young man gets worked up over a certain threshold, he no longer knows how to reign himself in. I think the Vancouver Police plan to look closely at the photos and videos and make public examples of the perps with help the next group of hockey fans in their quest to govern their own testosterone.
PDQ, "moronic", "hateful", "bigot", "racist" Isn't that more than a little over the top? If you are trying to decrease conflict in the Mudcat, calling people such strong names is not a productive approach. However if your aim is to emulate hateful, bigoted, moronic and racist assholes like Beck and Limbaugh, then by all means carry on. What you are doing may be childish, but it is entertaining.
