    people write in to my gmail address and they ask me things like 

    if i hate america so much why dont i move to canada.

    it makes me wonder why only idiots have my gmail address.

    for the rest of you its busblog at gmail dot com.

    but they do have a good point. canada has basically legalized weed, theres free medical, and i assume free dental. they dont run around blowing people up who they are trying to “liberate”. and they’re close enough to america that if you need to see a concert you can just make a little road trip.

    unfortunately for my detractors, i was born here. infact i was born in the nations capital.

    i grew up in the midwest and ive lived in california for my entire adulthood.

    as an african-american, my “people” have been here for around 400 years.

    if anyone should move away, which is rarely the solution, it shouldnt be me.

    plus i dont want to have to learn a foreign language.

    although i wouldnt mind having raymi as a neighbor.

    i got a very nice comment from a canadian who said that he wanted to write something about the current american political situation but he didnt feel that it was his place.

    my neighbors to the north, consider this an open invitation: any time you want to add to the discussion about how you feel about whats happening in the world, particularilly whats happening in america or america’s influence on the world, feel free.

    although you people arent blessed with the same freedom of speech that we are granted, pretend that you can say anything. consider this blog a small portion of america and as a guest here you are entitled, nay, requested, to throw in your two cents.

    or pesos.

    or whatever you people up there use for money.

    if anything you are a better judge of whats happening since you’re not biased.

    canada’s fucked no matter which president steals the next election. just look what america has done to the health of pam, michael j., and tom green.
