The Joke's on Me

In my feeble attempt to post what I regard as interesting information, I find that the facts are sometimes not the facts. The author of "Canada to Annex North Dakota, Residents", an article that stimulated me to write my last blog, says the piece he did was completely made-up. Well, go figure. I wondered why no one was talking furiously about the subject of North Dakota being sold to Canada. I went back to review his article and still, it seemed so real. What did I miss? There had to be a word or bit of information that some other savvy political mind would have caught. Somehow I didn't get the relief I should have in knowing that North Dakota, it's elderly and it's oil, remained part of the states. I think I've just been egged.

Maybe it is behind the illusion.

When you add the oil into the story, the story doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Because oil will attract the youth of the country and therefore changing the balance of the statistics.

What I read was that ND was worthless and the US would be glad to get rid of it. The Canadian people were offended by the suggestion that their government was stupid enough to consider the subject and the amount for the sale was in the story but I can
t remember that, lol.

I read it a few months ago now.

If you stop and think about it, it is not really a far stretch of the imagination. How long has it been considered that Canada would become the 51st State? And with the world in the state it is, it isn't a far stretch to see the two countries united in some way.
