My friend Jim and I like to joke that if Romney wins the election we are going to Canada, preferably Vancouver. We brought this up at lunch yesterday with Trudy. She said: "Fat chance. I've already looked into it. Unless you have a "desirable" skill, you won't have enough points to get into the country." How many points for an oldster who writes an occsional blog? My guess is zero.
Now I read that Andy Borowitz, who provides a daily dose of timely wit, is covering the story. He reports that Canada is bracing for a flood of "illegal aliens" after November 6.
I wonder how long it would take those friendly Canadians to call us "takers not makers" and lazy moochers if we tried to take advantage of their national health care system.
Maybe Puerto Rico will take us. Or Guam. I think they are "American." Wow. I need to get down the atlas and figure out where things are, and who controls them. "Papers, please, indeed."
