    I have visited Canada many times but that doesn't make me a Canadian, even by your logic! Ted Cruz was BORN in Canada which makes him a Canadian citizen! Imagine that logic!

    Thid, he was raised in Montreal and educated at McGill.

    So by your logic (place of birth), Ted Cruz is Canadian and that's that. Right?

    Esquire. Canadian Krauthammer? He was born March 13, 1950, New York City, New York, U.S. But you always think truth is odd don't you?

    "Revenge, American-style"

    Yeah, alright, This is probably one of Krauthammer's better articles. Thanks for the history lesson Charlie.

    You know . . . American-style revenge becomes somewhat distorted when "Conservative" Republicans are in power. Have you noticed that?

    Terrorist knocked down the Twin Towers, and we were out for revenge . . . understandably . . . Me too . . . All Americans wanted revenge.

    But then GW decided to attack, overwhelm, and occupy a country that had NOTHING to do with 911.

    What kind of revenge is that?

    That's like Ortiz dissing Price . . . And Price retaliating by beaning the bat boy with a 94 mph fast ball. It's ridiculous.

    Revenge American style is one thing, and the very un-American style of revenge carried out by the Bush administration is quite another.

    And when Obama stepped in to relieve GW, you can't just call the game off. You've got to go through with it. Meanwhile, the batboy is healing quickly, and growing, and he is also justifiably angry.

    American style revenge is completely justifiable. It is the very un-American behavior of reactionary "Conservative" Republicans that cause trouble for the home team . . . The good ol' USA.
