I've never made excuses for trump darling, merely pointing bs on both sides.[/quoote]

Bs on both sides... so long as it's the side you disagree with. Aight.

Shiranu, despite what you think, I'm not pro trump, or pro conservative. And just because someone disagrees with extremist left doesn't automatically put them in the far right camp.

I know you think the world's out to get you, but it really isn't. The world isn't quite as black and white as that.

It goes back further. Bush Sr was once asked about atheists and he said he didn't consider they should be considered citizens.

That was posted elsewhere ... but in the context of Communism.

Bush said it Robert Sherman at a formal press conference at Chicago's O'Hare airport in which Mr. Bush, then vice president, said that he didn't think atheists should be considered citizens or patriots since, "we are one nation under God."  It has been confirmed in later statements as fact.

At that time, in the popular imagination, Communism and atheism were the same thing.  Of course to the Founding Fathers ... deity was the Freemasonry kind ... not Abrahamic, more like Mithraism.

If you are gay married, then I think you should definitely move to Canada for awhile, rather than put up with moralist bullshit ... hopefully you can come back some day.  Draft protestors had to do this before you.

Yeah, Canada's going to have to build their own wall, to keep out American refugees. I wonder if they can get America to pay for it?

Just found this:

Canadians want to build a wall, too — to keep Americans out

Trump might as well build them both at the same time.  Maybe he will outsource both of them to the Russians, who have some experience, but Ronald Reagan told them to "Tear down that wall," in an order he issued to Gorbachev, but by the time he issued the order, it was already pretty much demolished by the Kremlin, so it was kind of a silly order, but Reagan had forgotten that it was already gone because he had Alzheimer's; The Chinese have also built a dandy wall, but that was a while ago, and now it's just a tourist attraction.  Trump will issue a bunch of one way permits for those who want to leave.  And Trump will make the Canadians pay for it.

Walls do make a lot of sense, because nobody could ever climb over a wall.  It just can't be done.

The wall of Jericho didn't work,
The Great Wall of China didn't work,
Hadrian's Wall didn't work,
The Berlin Wall didn't work,
So I bet Chump's Wall won't work, either...

What about Americans of Canadian descent?  Can we have a some sort of right of return deal, like Jews and Israel? 

I already like snow and hockey and pepper "eh?" in my sentences.  I also hold doors open for people who are over 20 feet 6 meters away.  And I could finally become fully fluent in French if that sweetens the deal.  If the answer is still no, just let me say one last thing:

I'm sorry.
