Actually, you're wrong Mike.

It is your American CAIR(Council of American-Islamic Relations) that gives money to Hamas and Hezbollah. Ask Obama, he'll tell you all about CAIR.

"Taking into account a promise by Canada’s government to match, dollar for dollar, every donation made by its citizens, the two telethons..."

WOW! What a deal! So if some chump coughs up 20 hard earned dollars (or whatever they call them in Canada), the government takes 20 more out of the very same pocket and gives that as well? Well, that proves it. Canadians are just as stupid as Americans.

You're not sure what money is called in Canada?...Holy crap, the country next door to you!

The Cdn govt has already donated money like any other govt...$100 mill+ so far, and will be donating MUCH more.

The Cdn govt also said they will match the donations of it's citizens...it's a way to raise even more funds, to get the public involved.

Jeez, some of you really are dumb.

Let me cut to the chase. I think anybody, any country (which still boils down to the individual citizens) are out of the friggen minds for dumping money into that rat hole. Maybe it's time for Haitian to get off their lazy, over-breeding asses and take care of themselves.

Moral obligation to know your neighbor?
No.
It's a mental obligation.

Canadians are just overdressed Americans that sunburn easily.
Not much different than us, eh?

Now be quiet and quit embarrassing intelligent Americans.

Ooooowwww! Canadians are just overdressed Americans? Now you really have something to complain about "Northern Observer". And you, Idi O Syncrasy,(cool handle) you need to know that Canadians are fiercely proud of their heritage. Does anyone know the Capital of Luxembourg?

Wouldn't that depend where "I" was in this world? I'm currently at the North Pole helping Santa get presents ready for next Christmas. Canada is to the south of my location.

P.S. Santa says you get a lump of coal.

Why wouldn't Canadians be proud of their heritage?
It's the same as ours, until we usurped the Victorville area from Mexico.

Hmmm, that's a tough one.
Isn't it Quebec or Manitoba or Lethbridge?
