Don't blame Canada
Considering that I'm not very political, I seem to be getting into more arguments than ever because of politics.
I was sitting and enjoying a nice pint of Guinness today at lunch with an associate, when I was rudely interrupted by a beligerant, ignorant war mongerer. Like I said, I'm not very political, although I do have my views and ordinarily would have left the moron to spout off, but then he had to go and drag Canadians inot the mix. That got me a little steamed, but I let it slide until he began to call us all good for nothing frenchmen. That put me over the edge. First off, I'm not fucking french, never have been and never will be, and I hate it when some dick assumes that we are all french. But that's a different rant.
There is actually a very small percent of the population that is french , and its ignorant fucks like this guy that leads the ill informed into confusion. His ranting had begun with his prediction of the next big attack on the united states and how the twin towers were going to look like cracking a peanut shell compared to the the next big attack. He then went on to discredit all liberals and democrats for their lazy mindset influence on the population and that was the reason we didn't have enough troops to blow all the "towel heads" up.
This made me pretty mad, but I was at a business lunch and didn't feel it my place to tell someone off for their opinion. Then he played the trump card and started to make fun of Canadians. That did it. I immediately turned to him and started giving him my piece of my mind about his ignorance, and that not all terrorist attacks have to come from the " fuckin towel heads" and that a couple of good 'ol american white boys proved that in Oklahoma back in the early 90's. I was good and fuming now and ripped him up and down about his background and the fact that his parents had immigrated here as did everybody's and that we have no right to blame anyone but our country's ignorance for this. If we hadn't stuck our nose in every other country's business we wouldn't have people pissed off at the USA all the time. Unfortunately the argument got personal and it really angered me that it turned out like that.
I have to admit that as good as it felt at the time, I was a little upset after because I had beaten him up pretty bad verbally in front of the whole bar, and exposed his true ignorance to everybody, and even though I did get a free beer from the bartender for it, I sit back now and wonder if this isn't how the whole damn thing got started in the first place?
