It’s about time we annex Canada east of Ottawa, change my mind.
thanks JDM very cool
@Legiondude Now that's a meme I haven't heard in a long, long time
thanks JDM now make a music channel on Subverse
In 2018 Buddah made history by become the first Nazi on a big screen in Whitehall
@Fitzydog I hope I'm not annoying you, but mods told us it was ok
we got it
``` It’s about time we annex Canada east of Ottawa, change my mind. ```
take it, please
Why end with Ottowa?
The entirety of Canada has been rightful American soil
unless you want some frenchies
I had to listen to his whining about getting a channel 🤷🏿
@AlephKnoll Southern Quebec has historically been the most Americophillic part of Canada
and it's full of....
including the birthplace of both iterations of Parti 51
We don’t want to absorb your shitty government or the Quebecois.
take Toronto, please
southern QC is amriphobic AF.
We should take everything south of the saint Laurence
during the war of 1812, the americans tried to get the help of the quebecois, thinking they didn't like being ruled by the brittish... but they didn't know that the only people the quebecois trust less than the british at the time, were the americans.
you don't have to take at this point
Dunno about the city, but the southern part of the province as a whole has a history of pro-Americanism dating back some 100-200 years
you could just ask and western canada would probably join
my only problem is if ever you get a Hillary in office
we're getting rid of Trudeau this year
tbh it's a shame southern Saskatchewan didn't join circa Quebec independence referendum. The contiguous US could have been shaped like a giant middle finger flipping off the rest of the world.
Well, if Quebec had left in the 90ms, Saskatchewan joining was a real possibility.
I wouldn't be so sure about that... vote splitting is a thing.
Alberta is considering it right now
I heard that once before, but I want proof
What party or referendum item?
Give me something to research here
If alberta is going to be annexed, I'm going to move to Alberta.
look up Alberta seperatism
Separatism and annexationism are two different things
they need access to tide water for their pipeline..
We’ll take Manitoba as well, give us access to the bay.
well, on their own they'd be vulnerable. joining the US is an option.. although, I doubt it'll happen unless Trudeau gets re-elected
I couldn't give less of a shit about separatism, I'm interested in annexationism, and to that end the Parti 51 political party in Quebec seems to be the only serious, organized, official entity in Canada putting forward a pro-American annexation platform in the entire country.
if shit face gets back in, I'd look into it more seriously
Also they've been putting out dank-ass images on their Facebook like this one
well, I can say this, @RMS_Gigantic - I definitely feel closer to my american neighbours than I used to
how do you feel about americans switching to metric though?
theres no way we are switching to imperial
how old are you, son?
Both nations use both systems due to their proximity to each other
do constructions sites back east use metric?
people still build using imperial here
I-19 from Tuscon, AZ to the Mexican border uses Metric
and some speed limit signs along the Canadian border
the old school guys haven't changed. if you're gonna go on a construction site, you need to know how to do it in feet and inches
And for the record, Quebec could continue to use the metric system
Even if they adopt US road signage common to the other states, the guide includes metric signage for speed limits
it looks like this: http://www.teresco.org/pics/plattsburgh-20090425/DSCF0194-close.jpg
though thanks to the American application of federalism, states can maintain their own standards for a LOT of shit
I was just saying that imperial is still used in some parts of canada, especially in house construction
In fact, Parti 51 essentially advocates for their position as a sort of middle road between independence and federation, with the shortcomings of each addressed via American statehood
Yeah, and metric is used in some places down here
The Metric system is no less a barrier than language is
There are a few parts of my state highways that use Metric
and giving Quebec statehood wouldn't even be the first time the US granted statehood to a majority French-speaking area
I don't really mind it so long as the imperial measurement is indicated beside it
That particular honor goes to Louisiana at time of admission
``` Yeah, and metric is used in some places down here ```
I'm actually surprised..
Hell, look at US food labeling
Lousana only has a french quarter or what?
It does today
they speak cooler french than quebecquer french
but when it was first admitted as a state, it was majority French-speaking
east of Quebec is the canadian cajuns called acadiens
But yeah, soda cans, for example, have their sizes labeled as "12 FL OZ (355 mL)"
and it's pretty common in science fields, while American engineers tend to work in US Customary units
well good. metric makes more sense
Nah, US Customary does, especially in engineering and day-to-day use
what is us customary units?
What most folks call "Imperial units" as used in the US
It's called US Customary because it differs from Imperial in certain ways
Imperial is how the Brits use it
But yeah, on the engineering front, consider the following: If you're told to find gravitational potential energy but weren't given a formula or unit conversions, which would you find easier:
Height in meters, mass in kilograms, and informed that the answer will be in Joules
Height in feet, weight in pounds, and informed that the answer will be in foot-pounds
Meanwhile on the mathematics side, base 12 is generally significantly easier to work with given that it has more factors than 10 (1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12, versus 1, 2, 5, 10 respectively)
and on the everyday front, 2s, 3s, and 4s are easier to mentally approximate than 10s
Then just on the nomenclature and size front, a tablespoon generally makes for a damn good approximation, if not measuring instrument, for what constitutes a tablespoon of a substance
And guess what common household item can similarly be used to approximate the US customary unit "teaspoon"
Anyway, back to talk about history and annexing Canada
There were repeated proposals, attempts, and invitations on the part of the US for Canada to get annexed
We almost got Newfoundland back in 1946
It was close
But Congress rejected their invitation
And the Brits prevented them from holding such a referendum
At least they got a cool flag out of it https://sep.yimg.com/ay/yhst-46916591293778/newfoundland-flag-27.gif
much like how the Brits forbade British Columbia from seeking American annexation following the Alaska Purchase, despite BC having been led by an annexationist governor at the time
Also in 1946, we offered $100,000,000 to Denmark if they'd sell us Greenland
In 1917 they had accepted $25,000,000 for their share of the West Indies, for perspective
New Brunswick, coolest flag
tfw Denmark won't let us enforce an omnidirectional blockade against Canada
COME OUT WITH YOUR HANDS UP, CANADA
WE HAVE YOU SURROUNDED
you guys don't even know where Alaska is most of the time...
TFW we should already have annexed Nova Scotia https://jaymans.files.wordpress.com/2014/12/north-american-nations-4-3.png
Wait Alaska is real?
We know where it is, because we've been eyeing the corridor connecting to it for 150 years now
Oh nvm that was Narnia
Just one more piece to the puzzle to go
you have to admit though... we have a pretty good relationship if we can joke about this
Manifest Destiny is an annexation of peace
you think it would be an invasion?
Day of the Rake when?
This was a serious contingency plan back in the 1930's.
you don't need to frigin invade 😂 silly muricans
And yes, it would be, because Canada seemed very unlikely to declare itself a republic or allow US occupation of significant chunks of land at that time
as stated here
it's like me saying America is Trump. it's not true, America is filled with Americans
The difference is, a core part of the American identity doesn't revolve around contrarianism against Canada
you mean that cads always dis the states?
i said earlier that it's not as much like that anymore
we have dumbass leaders who keep bitching, but the general population likes murica
I mean that Canada is so hell-bent on anti-Americanism that they'll more eagerly hitch their wagon to *monarchism* than dare be a republic like the US.
don't assume we all are
I know why you're saying that though
Fuck the leafs
Canada is a constitutional monarchy
or a majority of Canadians would rather call China a larger economy than the US when it's demonstrably untrue
May they burn
its different from an absolute monarchy
@AlephKnoll A constitutional monarchy led by the head of a de jure absolute monarchy
@RMS_Gigantic I don't know where you're getting your info, but there's not just snowflakes up here just like Murica isn't just Hillary supporters
check yo shit
the queen has basically no influence on our politics
Well that's the rub now, isn't it, crypto: Either they're American contrarians or American annexationists
they apoint a govenor general, whose only job is to give royal assent to the bills we tell them to.
A dead one.
@AlephKnoll Except when the governor-general ejects a duly elected prime minister as what happened in Australia in 1975
not really, @RMS_Gigantic
I can see why you think Cads are snowflakes... our media's been taken over for one and our "leader" is a globalist puppet...
and it goes back pretty far because his dad did the same thing.
people are waking up to the socialism bullshit
this history channel needs more ancient aliens
it shouldn't happen... but it does.
but it very rarely happens.
tru. we should be in <#372513679964635138> 😛
name another example..
Trudeau is part of the Hillary gang.
I know... fuck us
he's actually giving our tax money to her
Speaking of tax money,
for gender studies in Haiti
instead of... i dunno... housing and medical facilities
or our own people.
I find this image to be an excellent metaphor for Canada itself
🇨🇦 🔫 🇺🇸
we're getting queer ones soon
is annexation really *that* bad?
Canadian annexation should have happened under the Articles of Confederation
i'd rather we just stopped being such cucks on our own
'cept we burnt down the frigin whitehouse
To quote Article XI from the Articles of Confederation, ```Canada acceding to this confederation, and joining in the measures of the united states, shall be admitted into, and entitled to all the advantages of this union: but no other colony shall be admitted into the same, unless such admission be agreed to by nine states.```
We laid out the red carpet and everything
but nope, too stubborn
you need still to control the border for a long time or the gay will spread in to the US after the annexation
that's tru ^
That's why I advocate for an American Samoa-style situation
Make Canadians into American non-citizen nationals upon annexation, instead of citizens
