The Rare and Miraculous Freebie

Just found out that due to the changes in Canadian citizenship law as of April 17....I am a Canadian citizen!!!

Still in shock. I've been upset over this my entire life, to suddenly have it handed to me...I don't know what to say.

...?

Do Americans make you that uncomfortable that you've wanted all your life to be a Canadian, or is there more to the story than that?

leftdog said...

WELL! Congratulations there NYM!
That is great news indeed and I am very happy to hear it!

(You know that some of your friends are now going to start labeling you as a 'Frostback'! LOL!

Oh Canada! We stand on guard for thee!

Great News Mama!!!

XOXOX

R J Adams said...

Hey! I'd like to be a Canadian citizen, too. Does this law change just apply to Angry Coyotes, or will they allow Chatty Sparrows in as well?

Not Your Mama said...

More to the story Woozie. Canada at one time simply did not recognize children born outside the country even if born to Canadian parents. Guess you could say it's kind of the white version of finally being acknowledged as existing.

Well RJ, to be honest their immigration laws are fairly ganked unless one is considered a refugee. We had nixed going there as immigrants because they don't really want older immigrants and moving to Sudan to try and get in as refugees seemed a bit onerous.

Leftdog: although "technically" my citizenship is retroactive to my date of birth I still have to jump through the application and proof process which I'm told can take from 10 to 15 months to get my Proof of Citizneship certificate.

I'm going to do it but not sure if we'll actually ever go live there or not, the "repatriation" does not extend to my now adult children or grandchildren (who would have been born and raised in Canada if I had had that option at the time). Still, it's something to finally be acknowledged.

Not Your Mama said...

Hey Woozie, ok the ones on the video in your latest post...yes, those do make me that uncomfortable. Creepy.

TauRaven said...

Large congrats momma, always good to be accepted by your own, come back to writing , I am tryin' to...Peace Tau

Dave said...

Congrats NYM!

I know it's a long process but in the end it'll be...

... about the same as it is now, except that you can end sentences in "eh"... eh?

Well done!

How about that single-payer medical insurance coverage?

ryk said...

That's pretty cool. I lived in northern Maine for a couple years and visited Canada quite a bit. I would move there in a heartbeat if I could take my job with me.

Too cold in Canada for me. Too hot in Pahrump, NV.

Good to see you posting again.

Prologue to Obama 2012







We approach the future walking backwards, our gaze forever fixated on the past. Predicting the future is not a passive exercise; we invent it every day with our actions.

I began the sketches for what would ultimately become Obama 2012 in March 2007, a month after Barack Obama declared his candidacy. I had spent much of the previous 18 months living abroad as an entrepreneur and statesman of sorts, and I was slightly out of touch with the pulse of life on the street in the United States. I learnt about Sen. Barack Obama’s Springfield, IL speech formally declaring his candidacy for president of the United States through one of the international cable news channels and thought how great it would be to have a fresh start after years of mediocrity in Washington and a plummeting reputation around the world.

By September, after what seemed like raising a six-month-old child, my sketches had turned into Why the Democrats Will Win in 2008 the Road to an Obama White House. It was my answer to the burning question everyone had back in March: Can he really win? Actually, not everyone thought it was a question. For many people, including Mark Penn, director of the Clinton campaign, the answer was an easy “no way.” This strategic blunder made it that much easier for the Clinton campaign to be defeated. Then there were Black pundits like Shelby Steele, a fellow at the Hoover Institution, who came out with a 2007 book entitled A Bound Man, Why Obama Can't Win.

Being Black did seem to be an automatic disqualification, but then why did someone need to write an entire book arguing what should have been patently obvious? Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Colin Powell came to my mind and I remembered that he could have run for president in 1992 as a war hero. But Colin Powell was Ronald Reagan’s protégé and got a special pass on the race question. Black conservatives like Justice Thomas, Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell were careful to disassociate themselves from liberal thinkers and activists like Jesse Jackson, who lost, as expected, the 1984 and 1988 Democratic primaries. Ultimately, Colin Powell, in spite of all his honors, declined to run for president. His wife Alma feared for his safety. Common sense said that a candidate like Obama, for numerous insurmountable reasons, didn't stand a chance of winning the Democratic primary, let alone a general election in which 10% of the electorate is African American and Republicans controlled the White House for 20 of the preceding 28 years. But I decided that Obama's chances merited a closer examination. In it, I would bring to bear my gambling skills.

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
[b][/b]
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
