This is so wrong on so many levels. Here in the good ole' 'Free' US of A we are going through a semi depression even though our government tells us otherwise. A Canadian couple attempt to go to a shopping mall in the US and here is how they are treated at the border.
I knew the minute I heard of the 'Patriot Act' shortly after 9-11 that it would eventually be turned in such a way as to cause more harm to American citizens than it would ever help. And now the chickens are coming home to roost.
The customs agents heard on this tape should themselves be thrown in jail. Is this any way to treat our closest ally? Is his how we want an ally who is helping to shoulder the burden of war overseas to be treated? I think not. Canadians, pressure your government to just say no to American requests for your sons and daughters blood in our bogus, senseless, needless wars.
On behalf of any rational Americans left in this country, I apologize for the extent to which we have allowed our law enforcement agencies to have become what both our countries fought against in the middle of the last century. Jackbooted thugs!
Canadians, save your money, spend it wisely helping your own economy, ours is doomed anyway. Let it go.
