Run for the Border....

Filed under: "Because It Needs To Be Said"
One of the feeds I have in my Google Reader is "Stuff White People Like." Its a satirical 'mockumentary' type blog poking fun at us white people. One of the listings I busted out laughing on b/c of our life situation was #75: "Threatening to Move to Canada"...
"Often times, white people get frustrated with the state of their country. They do not like the President, or Congress, or the health care system, or the illegal status of Marijuana. Whenever they are presented with a situation that seems unreasonable to them, their first instinct is to threaten to move to Canada.

"For example, if you are watching TV with white people and there is a piece on the news about that they do not agree with, they are likely to declare “ok, that’s it, I’m moving to Canada.”

"Though they will never actually move to Canada, the act of declaring that they are willing to undertake the journey is very symbolic in white culture. It shows that their dedication to their lifestyle and beliefs are so strong, that they would consider packing up their entire lives and moving to a country that is only slightly different to the one they live in now."

And for a humorous note at the end, Stuff White People like note, "Canadian white people threaten to move to Europe."

Let the record show that we love our country and are not moving to Canada because of dissatisfaction, but because of opportunity.

Then there are those of us who just threaten to move back to Texas and start a movement to secede.

Love it!! That site is hilarious and painfully true! LOL What is funny is that people often threaten it when they don't realize that the reason they might leave over could very well be "worse" here! LOL We first moved here for the awesome opportunity... now we are here because we love it... and we love the people! :^)
