Damn you, Canada



Sometimes being a Detroiter sucks. Particularly when you can look across the Detroit River and gaze at Canada, only to realize that despite their funny accents, those damn Canucks are seemingly doing everything in their power to make us look bad.

For example: Canada has just become the third nation in the world to achieve marriage equality. Fuckers. Michigan spent last year passing an asinine proposal which denies not only marriage and civil union rights to same-sex couples, but effectively denies domestic partnership benefits to municipal employees. Canada, on the other hand, has a Prime Minister who says things like this:

"We are a nation of minorities," Mr Martin said. "And in a nation of minorities, it is important that you don't cherry-pick rights. A right is a right, and that is what this vote tonight is all about."


Where the fuck does Canada get off being so damn cool?

Living just a little further north is looking better and better as time goes on.

Although, I'm still planning on being a resident of the state of Hawaii by 35. They are like a whole different country out there, and everyone loves everyone.
