"It's getting Scary"
The U.S. Mexican border is becoming a war zone thanks to the drug trade, paranoia, and bigotry. That damned wall don't help matters either. Then There's Canada. Our Great Enemy to the North!
When the hell did that happen?
Mexico I can see. Sure they're pissed at us we stole half their country. That, and employing them at slave wage rates all over the place.
Now you need a passport, all kinds of hassles on the roads, and train stations in, and out of the Great White North.
As a lad I just walked across the border, just like that.
Back in the day we used to be proud of the fact the the U.S. Canadian line was the longest undefended, unbarricaded border on Earth. True we've had two wars with them guys, and they kicked our butts both times!
Still ya see my point.
(Btw the way this was all Bush's doing.)
Now the Canadian border is as scary as the Mexican. Generations of heartless imperialist yankee oppressors will grow up never knowing that their northern border was once free'n open.
I dunno when I was a kid it was Russian paratroops, and attacking fleets of UFO's that were our only 'real' border worries. Now we fear our next door neighbors.
(...a little more that we did.)
Oh the wonders of the 21st century.
