    This really proves the difference. The US worries about having enough petroleum. The sensible Canadians want to make sure they have enough real maple syrup. And their money is more sensible than ours. Their loonies are coins whereas ours are in politics.

    I've stocked up on maple syrup because of just
    such a risk. Maple syrup is more essential than
    gasoline. And it stores better. (Gasoline degrades
    with time...something that zombie apocalypse
    shows don't get.)

    When the world ends, that's when maple syrup is most needed.

    Maple syrup is the Mac of syrups. Corn Syrup can do the same thing. The menus are a little different is all.

    Corn syrup has no taste...it's just sweet (but less so).

    You have scorned corn syrup and ought to be deported. What ever happened to your pledge of allegiance to the flag of the United States of America?

    I never did the pledge.
    Either faked it or refused it.

    So you might be in hot water if you were ever drafted. Also it could cause you political problems if you ran for public office. Maple syrup is really only the beginning of your problems. What about American cheese? Do you like American cheese?

    I was never going to cooperate with the draft.
    My lottery# was 34, so I was going to move to
    Canuckistan....but then Nixon cancelled the draft.
    **** the draft, government, & Vietnam War.

    I feel sorry for you, so I'm contributing a link to help you when spreading your vicious propaganda about our President Nixon.
    Richard Nixon on Principles & Values

    Best of luck with your maple syrup and all that.
