I stopped at a local gas station / quicky mart to fuel up and buy a bottle of water on the way home today. I was sporting my new IDF T-shirt and feeling all warm and friendly. Feeling a bit parched (that's Texan for for thirsty for all you Canadians) I went into the store to get a bottle of water.[;D] When I walked to the counter to pay for my water the lady (of Arab persuasion) began ranting in her native tongue flailing her arms about, like wounded peacock. She wondered off into the back room and a man (of Arab persuasion) came out to relieve her as if they were some well rehearsed wrestling tag team. This gentleman (of Arab persuasion) didn't have much to say to me, he just gave me the "pay for your water and get the hell out of my store" look. He kept staring a my IDF T-shirt for some reason. Anyway, I smiled (very big[:d]) paid for my water and told the gentleman (of Arab persuasion) to have a very nice weekend. It was the most fun I've had in months.

Right here [url]http://www.fidfstore.org/store.cfm[/url] [img]http://www.alljudaica.com/products/other/3489.jpg[/img] You can get the same shirts on other sites, but the proceeds from this site go directly to the IDF. And all you Jew haters and people that want to bitch about how we already send Israel too much money...save your key strokes. We've all heard it before.

I also had a quite interesting time while wearing my new IDF shirt in a 7-11. Around here, they have these little machines on the cash registers that scroll the news. Well, I was sitting there paying for my slurpy and malboro's when it started flashing saying "news alert". Being a half drunk at the time, the flashing instantly got my attention and it was telling about the twin suicide bombings that happened a little while back. I must have really offended the arab behind the counter because he threw my smokes at me and went on a barely understandable rant about how the jews deserved everything they get and they are stealing his land. I just started laughing and told him to have a good day. I go in there everyday and he always just gives me a really dirty look and follows me around the store. Makes my morning! Keving67

I once wore a homemade "Remember the USS Liberty massacre!" at the local deli. A guy kept bitching about how it was an accident and so on. Then I yelled " Well, I don't recall strafing unarmed sailors in the water over and over again an accident!" Everyone in the deli looked at us and the guy left. Guess the truth hurted him.

All I have to say to you Gunner is... [img]http://www.gamerz232.org/images/GoYou.gif[/img] I will remember to go visit the local Jewish bagel shop wearing a SS officers tunic and when they ask me paper or plastic I will say "Can" and I will pull out a Zyklon B canister which I use to store all my bagels normally. But for now I will have to go pick up my KKK uniform to ride the metro.

As a non-Arab Muslim, and a bemused observer of the whole 'tiff' over there, I have to agree with Gunner, its just a tee-shirt. I think the Israelis are like Frenchmen with a serious pair of brass balls- they may be arrogant and a little too self impressed, but they didnt get this far on ass kissing and boot licking. The Palestinians are going to be a grease spot on the map of history if they dont knock it off and learn from their opponents, which seems impossible for that fat camels ass Arafat. He's responcible for more of his own peoples deaths than any Israeli general. Oh, and I do own an SS uniform and I bought it from a Russian Jew who later moved to Israel and loads bombs on IAF airplanes. I'm married to his sister. And I have many IDF 'things', including a tee-shirt just like that one signed by a couple Merkava tank crews who visited with my National Guard unit a few years back. I dont wear it to Masjid (mosque for all you non-hackers) though. Next time you go in there Gunner, tell the guy his father was circumsized by your rabbi. ^_^ Rashid

My comparison of the SS and KKK to the IDF comes from the fact every time the Nazi's where attacked by rebel forces their response was to send in tanks and attack airplanes into the region and killing civilians. For those of you who couldn't see the link, well your the same people who can't get your brains completely around the entire middle east issue, but than again, the Nazi's didn’t have the PR machine that Israel has. It makes me glad that people with such closed minds like some of you are currently writing US gun legislation rather then international law. Gunner1X, the fact you put down Canadians as something they aren’t, proof enough that you know nothing that isn't American (and stamped made in China underneath). TheFNG, wishing for me to suffer the effects of Zyklon B? Someone says something you don't like and they should die. Well your definitely working on a full deck... NAKED-GUNMAN, calling me a dick!

Well, between my time in the military and in business travel, I've lost count of the countries I've been to so it's a little easy to lump the American bashing folks together, but I'll try to focus on what little I know about Canada...home of our draft dodging US cowards. Canada is the 2nd largest country in the world, but you have fewer people than our Kalifornia. 75% of your population huddles within 100 miles of the US border (can't blame you). Canada is supposed to be a Federal Union, but it's more like a federation of shopping centers and bass fisherman. Not that I don't enjoy a good weekend of fishing or a new pair of shoes.[:D] You have a two house legislature, modeled on Britian's Parliment, half is which is the elected House of Commons and your Senate is appointed...by the governor general of all things. WTF is that all about? You have only a shadow of what we call freedom of speech--see book bans and more recently lesislature that will limit verbal opposition to PC issues like homosexuality. Criminalizing expressed opinions...very sad. I see the thought police in your future. The Canadian government loves to twist the arm of the press. No time here to review the entire country so I'll be selective. Quebeckers are constantly bitching about bilingualism, but only 1/3 of it's population speak english. WTF? Montrealers would like some for of sovereignty while retaining Canadian funds and military protection. Vancouver is all but owned by Hong kong, who in turn seems to be selling it off as if it were on fire. Ontario is resented by the rest of Canada for being prosperous. Alberta has all the oil so it has to begrudgingly pay "equalization payments to the rest of the Canadians (we call that socialism). Canadian government does most everthing for everybody which leads to complacancy. Three words--repressed, obedient and liberial. Riddle I read a while back: How do you get Canadians to do something? [i]answer[/i]: You just tell them to do it.[:D] Yes, if I were a Canadian I would be one of the tired old Tories. You've never had a revolution or a civil war or anything else to shape you as a culture. Your open door policy towards undocumented aliens is choking your economy and creating an enourmous security threat to the United States and Canadians could care less. How many Ukranians and Arabs have entered your country this year? You don't know and neither does your government, but it's in the thousands. I will say kudos to your education system. Yours prospers while ours has failed. Thank you also for insulin and pabulum (great humor and Canadian bacon). Oh yeah, Dan Aykroyd and Wayne Gretzky are great, but you can have Peter Jennings back. This may seem like a personal slam, it's not. Just my humble opinion; that which--I as an American citizen, am free to express. Lastly - I don't buy anything made in China. - Gunner1X (A damn proud and pompous AMERICAN) PERSONA NON GRATA

I didn’t say that the KKK had tanks and airplanes. If you where capable of reading your so called history books I'd think you notice I was only talking about the Nazi's. Unfortunately you decided to overlook that in an attempt to twist what I said. Fact is the KKK had pipe bombs, firebombs, guns, and at one time police power to do what they wanted and get away with it.
Hmm--let's see--do I know about anything that isn't American? (Insert crap here)

Well that’s nothing you can't find just by typing Canada in your web browser, but the fact remains you, like many Americans focus on the negative of Canada. Just like US newscast, 90% tragedy, 5% weather, and 5% news. How about I act like you and recite one way I could look at the US: A country that had to get away from the British cause you all weren’t in the mood to pay extra taxes, not because they where starving people or stealing land or even executing people, just over a fucking tax it was time for war. Now look at your taxes! Thank God you got rid of those pesky British! And the US dollar is very strong, but when you notice that Canada has 7/10ths the dollar you guys have with 1/20th the population it really does say something about how many real hard working Americans there really are and how economically sound your country is. But of course some of you blame all those blacks, Mexicans, Asians on the decay of your society. But fact is, when the US had almost none of those immigrants within its borders, the Canadian dollar was worth MORE then the US dollar. But what can someone expect from a country that had a civil war in which family would kill family over the right to own slaves. And how long did it take after that for you people to figure out racial segregation is wrong? This may seem like a personal slam, it's not. Just my humble opinion; that which--I as an Canadian citizen, am free to express without fear of being called a terrorist and executed in a secret tribunal and without worrying the BATF will set fire to my house or kill my future wife and children. BTW: LARRYG, scream anti-Semite every time someone talks out about what the Jews are doing, maybe someone will forget they can actually do something wrong.

Scarecrow, You really are a damn idiot. Why are you even on this board? Your just as stupid as any other liberal in thinking that the Civil War was completely over slavery, when it fact it was about the Souths right to live they way they had to at the time. Remember, the northern part of the country had slaves too. Slavery was a necessity in that day and age and was used by nearly all societies at one time or another. Also, we didn't figure out slavery was wrong it just died out over time with the introduction of inventions that made it obsolete. If there were a better way of doing things than having to deal with slaves then it would have been done. Also, your support for the so called "poor" Palestinians is ridiculous. They are a people who live on killing and have been kicked out of every place they have ever been because of it. The terrorist who continue to get their own people killed will do so forever regardless of how they live, as they care nothing of themselves or they innocent people around them. I again wonder why your here? By the way I have no problems with Canada, so quit acting so offended. Bill3508

If the shoe fits............and I think your remark shows that the shoe fits nicely. You didn't say what Israel is doing, you just said 'what the Jews are doing'. Point made. You and others couch your remarks so they don't sound like anti-Semitism, but the message is clear. You and others say you argue points while those that disagree resort to name calling. It's because we see through your 'points' and, quite frankly, you keep rehashing the same BS and it gets old. That's all it is, BS, to vainly try to cover your true sentiments. Every one of yours and others 'points' have been proven false and you keep saying them. After awhile, one gets tired of trying to converse with those who hate Israel and it's occupants, thus the 'name calling' that you and others whine about. Furthermore, you are constantly taking shots at the US, based on ignorance of course, so don't be surprised when people take shots at you.

A couple points of history in America... The American Civil War (War of Northern Aggression for our Southern friends) had little to nothing to do with actual slavery. While it is true that the American Civil War could have been partially or totally avoided through the use of economic means, the principal bone of contention was over the right of one or more of the Several States to secede from the Union. Due to the outcome of the American Civil War, we now refer to the United States as "one Nation, indivisible..." Granted, I wouldn't mind letting Texas secede, and therefore allow it free reign to conquer and annex Mexico as a whole. Texas could then rejoin the union. BTW - IIRC, Texas is the only section of the United States that was an independent political entity BEFORE it was included into the Union - someone please correct me if I am wrong. People often talk of slavery as if it is wholly America's fault. Remember your market forces - there must be a supply for there to be a demand. While it is possible for a supply to be created in response to a demand, refusal to create the supply can cause a shift or an elimination of the demand in question. Africans became slaves because AFRICANS sold them into slavery. It's not just us, you know. Besides, if America is entirely responsible for the slave trade, explain the Sudan. The largest slave trader on the planet, the Sudan was picked to replace the United States on the UN Human Rights Commission after the ouster of the US. Yeah, blame us. The American Revolution was not simply fought over taxation. The American Revolution was fought, ultimately, over taxation enacted UPON the colonies, while the colonies did not enjoy the Parliamentary representation that the Britons who remained at home had. Perhaps you missed the rallying cry of the Boston Tea Party - "No Taxation Without Representation!" Or did they not print the last half? It is also instructive to note that, again, this was a war that could have been averted by other means. Had King James allowed the colonies representation in the House of Lords and the House of Commons, the US could possibly still be colonies of the Crown. Yeah, we have our taxes now, but at least the damn fools that voted these taxes into being are on OUR side of the puddle, and where we can get at them! We're working on it... The Canadian Dollar and the US Dollar are essentially apples and oranges. Remember what happened when the Yen was revauled a few years ago? What is to prevent us from doing the same thing? Besides, the principal problem with our economy as of now is the removal of the specie standard, casting the dollar adrift in the world market. There is nothing to "hitch our wagon to," so the dollar is a floating currency (much like the Euro.) It has no intrinsic value, and hasn't since the Silver and Gold Certificates failed of issue. I would happily back a return to the Gold standard - or perhaps a reissue of monetary units in ACTUAL Gold or Silver! A man can dream... Tell me, upon what is the Canadian dollar based? Just for fun, can you tell me from which language the word "dollar" has been corrupted, co-opted, and borrowed? It doesn't belong to either one of us. Bonus marks for a correct ORIGINAL spelling. How long did it take us AFTER the American Civil War to figure out slavery was wrong? We figured it out before the Civil War - else we would not have had it. Granted, slavery was not the central issue of the war - but it was a major contributing factor. We were figuring out it was wrong as early as 1820 - as the Underground Railroad had begun about that time. Like all ideas, it took time to gain general circulation. Anything else I can explain for you? FFZ

And because he is here, I am leaving. Canadians may claim to be openminded, but what I have seen usually precludes such a statement from ever being truth, at least in my life time.

So if whites in Africa are getting killed by blacks I can't say that black people are killing white people in Africa or else I am racist? Ohhhh fucking no! Look at me, saying the truth in a politically incorrect manner. Sorry for pointing out the obvious fact that 99% of Israel are Jews, I must be racist.
You and others couch your remarks so they don't sound like anti-Semitism, but the message is clear. You and others say you argue points while those that disagree resort to name calling.

Name calling? Your the one screaming Anti-Semite cause I pointed out that Israeli's are Jews! With you everyone who doesn't think all Palestinians should be killed is being racist. Insert the word blacks instead of Palestinians and tell me how your not racist because Palestinians aren't actually people. Your the guy who promotes the killing of Palestinians simply because a few hundred of them danced in the streets happy to see the WTC go down. Well news flash, some anti-gov fellow Americans where doing the same, and I don't hear you crying that all Americans should die. You find it simple to bunch all Palestinians in one corner and blame them for everything even though you don't know them all, and you wont even consider the possibility that Palestinians who love the USA and are working for peace are also getting killed in these incursions. Explain to me how someone who lives in a country that is supposed to promote the freedom to express yourself can talk about killing people for doing just that, but in a way that offended you.
It's because we see through your 'points' and, quite frankly, you keep rehashing the same BS and it gets old. That's all it is, BS, to vainly try to cover your true sentiments.

True sentiments? Your the one saying its alright for innocent Palestinians to die aslong as they might have liked the fact that Americans died in the WTC. You are somehow immune to your own words? Or is that it is easier just to ignore the fact you might be racist towards all muslims than it is to label someone else Jew hater?
Every one of yours and others 'points' have been proven false and you keep saying them.

Points proven wrong? Lets look at what people have said to address my words... Troll... Troll... Anti-Semite... Troll... Jew hater... Wow your right, that proves all my 'points' so wrong!
After awhile, one gets tired of trying to converse with those who hate Israel and it's occupants, thus the 'name calling' that you and others whine about.

If your so tired why the fuck did you answer me? Your logic is really in the "special" category.
Furthermore, you are constantly taking shots at the US, based on ignorance of course, so don't be surprised when people take shots at you.

Oh, I always bash the US? Well maybe cause some people just look at what I say, don't like it, but instead of addressing it, the see CAN under my handle and go after that. I am always held to a higher standard then everyone else on this board simply because I am Canadian and somehow this makes all I say meaningless and automatically makes me sub-human, then you wonder why I don't point out the good things about the US.

Look at this GENIOUS! I am somehow the representation of ALL Canadians! Amazing! Let me ask this question, are all Americans so quick to group an entire people by the actions of one individual or is this a rare occurrence found within US gun boards?
