Oh Canada!

CNN reported on Monday that the Canadian immigration website had 115,000 hits on the day after the election when they normally have about 20,000 hits/day. A company has been set up for Americans to discover if the Canadian option is right for them. The last part of the article states that while Communicopia would like to help interested Americans, moving to Canada should be plan B. They strongly encourage Americans to build a culture in line with their values. In other words, stay and fight. Admittedly, I have been very unhappy with the way our country has been moving and while moving to Canada or Europe did cross my mind, to me it would feel like giving up. I have to stay and fight, not only for me but for those people that are frustrated but can't fight.

And on that note we come to the illegal war in Iraq. The death toll for this month is now 91 which makes it the second highest death toll in the war. Nine people have been reported killed within the last 24 hours for a total of 1212 Americans and 1358 Coalition members. In the third month of the war, May 2003, there were 47 Americans and 4 Brits killed.
