Hey, just because we failed in making Canada a US territory doesn't mean we lost the war. We beat back the British, didn't we? Hmmm? They started it! boxing.gif

Normal is a relative term. For some reason it is not a term my relatives use to describe me.

See, now you're talking about your little "Revolution" rolleyes.gif A competely different skirmish. wink.gif

1812 was between you and us. The Brits just want to take credit for 1812 so it doesn't look like the US beat them every time. (see, we can have fun, and destroy history all at the same time laugh.gif )

Moi? Say something inflamatory? Never... jerry.gif Until having met actual Canadians, I wouldn't have known that was an insult. And being the ornery cuss I am, I thought it was an excellent opportunity to slip it into a discussion. I also found out that Newfies are the people most used as the butt of jokes.

Yup. Newfs are made fun of more than anyone else around here. They talk funny. tongue.gif (don't we all)

Sad thing is, everyone in the west calls everyone from East of Quebec Newfies, despite the fact that most of us are from the mainland. rolleyes.gif It's amazing how hard it is for someone to grasp the idea that you need to be from Newfoundland to be a Newfie.

Hey, don't worry about insulting me with the 51st state crack. I've heard it before. Heck, I've used it. But only when I was really pissed off about our politicians bending over backwards to send all of our resources south with scraps in return. Weeeee! It's just, we, or should I say I, am paranoid that the world sees Canada as just an offshoot of the States. If you guys ever take over, it'll be through TV. We are rapidly loosing Canada to American Television. Anyone notice how every kid in North America talks like they're from LA?

Wow! That was like six rants in one, and completely off topic. laugh.gif

I can't tell if you're being serious or not, Raven. It wasn't a game, it was the war. A long forgotten skirmish where the US tried to take over Canada, but were sent home. Come on, they must be teaching this one in the Schools down there. I feel a song coming on.

Billy Green
-by Stan Rogers

Attend you all good countrymen, my name is Billy Green,
And I will tell of things I did when I was just nineteen.
I helped defeat the Yank invader, there can be no doubt,
Yet lately men forget the name of Billy Green, the Scout.

'Twas on a Sunday morn' in June when first we heard the sound,
Three thousand Yankees on the road to camp below Greentown,
Two Generals, Artillery and Company of horse,
With many rank and file afoot, they were a mighty force.

Says I to brother Levi, "Well, we still can have some fun!
We'll creep and whoop like Indians to try to make them run!"
Which then we did both loud and long, much to the Yanks' dismay.
They fired their 'pop-gun' muskets once and then they ran away.

Well, first they plundered Stoney Creek and then John Gage's farm.
They cut his fences for their fires although the day was warm.
They bound my brother Isaac up and took him from his home;
They pillaged all the countryside, no mercy there was shown.

Then says I to myself, "Now Billy, this will never do.
Those scurvy Yanks are not the match for Loyalists like you".
My brother's horse I quickly caught and put him to a run,
And reached the British camp upon the heights of Burlington.

Says I to Colonel Harvey, "Now, let there be no delay,
If we're to reach the Yankee camp before the break of day.
I'll take you through the woods by night where I know every tree,
And ere the dawn you surely can surprise the enemy."

With men and guns we then set forth the enemy to seek,
Across the beach at Burlington and then to Red Hill Creek;
We came upon their sentries; we surprised them every one.
One died upon my sword, and all the others off they run.

And so it was we were in place one hour before dawn.
We fired three times upon the camp and then we marched along.
We fired again and charged as Colonel Harvey gave the word,
And put the enemy to fight with bayonet and sword.

With great confusion in the camp, two Generals were caught.
The Colonel and his men made their artillery as naught.
We killed over two hundred and we captured all the rest;
Nor did we lose but eighty men; of them we had the best.

And so it was I played the man though I was but nineteen.
I led our forces through the night that this land would be free.
I foiled the Yank invaders and I helped put them to route,
So, let no man forget the name of Billy Green, the Scout.

Exactly. This thread got WAY too far off topic. Good thing I'm not to blame for that. tongue.gif

So, the Flames are going to take the game tonight, you all know that, right?

Adam this is all very far fetched. The government is in charge of the military down here in southern North America and I really can't believe that they would ever have their hand in anything like that. Surely it would have at least have been on the news and I can not recall that ever happening.

I do remember when we landed on the moon and claimed ownership for the good old US of A (without a shot being fired I might ad) tongue.gif

What? Me worry? unsure.gif

No, they made into space first. The US landed on the moon first. They were, however, unsuccessful in putting together a hockey team there.

I know, I was only trying to feed Raven some of his own medicine. biggrin.gif I know making it to the moon first is a big deal for you guys.

So, how come you haven't been back? No night-life? To many bugs? Rains too much?

Are you sure that this isn't some sort of swimming event????

BTW the Russians teach their children that the US moon landings were a hoax..or at least they used to!!

America owns the moon - they said that California was a worthless piece of real estate at one time - besides if we took our moon out of the sky, think how dark the nights would be tongue.gif

Heh heh Caw
