Unfortuntaley at this time, no. I just turned 22 and no longer qualify to be covered under my Dad`s extended. And my current employer is a douche and dosen`t feel he should have a medical plan.


And a gallbladder would be free for me... even without benefits.

But lets not get into a healthcare argument... they never turn out well. There are positives as well as negatives to our system. It`s good, but not great. I do enjoy the fact that if I ever needed chemo or a large operation after say, a car accident I wouldn`t be in debt $30,000 for it.

Canada now holds the record for most gold medals by a host country as well as most gold medals by any one country in the winter olympics. And as much as you Americans always say `Canada sucks`... I know it dosen`t and wouldn`t live anywhere else (especially here in Vancouver) and that`s all that matters to me.
Whooped-de-doo.

Our 1984 Olympic swim team beat that in gold alone: 21 gold swimming medals.

No, I just want to support Canada with the 3 things they do right. Maple Syrup, M-tuned Rods, and happy ending's on massages.

Are you REALLY comparing the Summer Olympics to the Winter Olympics? Really?

Just saying that our 1984 squad got more gold medals in one discipline than ALL of Canadia did for the 2010 games. Heck, that wasn't even counting the number of silver and bronze medals the U.S. swimming teams got.

But you're right....the Summer Olympics are a lot more popular and more competitive than the Winter Olympics (in most parts of the world).

Silly Canuckistanian.

You realize that the 14 golds, is the most EVER in Olympic history, right? Last time I checked, the USA has been competing in teh winter Olympics as long as we have. If you're so great, how come you don't hold the record?

Canada has never been great at the Summer Olympics... that I know and admit.

And it's "Canadian"... you "Americanese"...

Oh, and I apologize from all Canadians for Nickelback, Simple Plan and Hedley that played at the closing ceremonies last night.

Long time hockey fan.

That was a fantastic hockey game. Back and forth and incredibly few stoppages of play. Both teams played hard from start to finish and it was a nail biter. I was torn about which team to root for too. USA for national pride and slight underdog status. Team Canada had 5 players I'd watched play, grow up and get drafted from major juniors though. Iginla, Morrow, Marleau, Niedermeyer and Luongo.

One of the best games I've seen.



Holy crap those medals are ugly as sin though. Gangsta rappers wouldn't even wear **** that big and ugly. Looked like someone (or some country) was overcompensating with the design of those abominations.

Yeah, I got the part about 14 golds for WINTER games is a record. I was making a point, you braggart, that the U.S. swim team had more golds in one discipline than Canada did in all the events.

It's people like you that ruin Canadia for the rest of the world. Go eff yourself and choke on some elk dick.

And you are bragging too...

What can I say, I'm proud of my country and happy that we beat you at something for once. Let me revel in it for a bit, and in a few weeks it will be old news.

Have you ever turned around and looked at yourself as a country? You say I'm bragging.. the USA is the supreme king at that. "USA is greater and better than everyone!, We are the greatest country EVAR!" etc... and constantly make fun of and belittle not only Canada, but many other countries in the world. So you go suck a fat one. Hypocrite. For once Canadians are showing some national pride, which is rare and we get slammed for it.

Ya, everyone up here thinks the same as well. Not to mention the "broccoli" looking bouquets they handed out. They're supposed to be west coast ferns, leaves etc... but I think they look like food.
