    El Guapo is not the right winger we all thought.

    Don't really understand these titles, but it appears to match my other profile. Slightly right of centre.

    Well Guap, I see only one solution: Resign your Chairmanship of the Conservative Planners Cabal in favor of Prudence.

    I was the typical Liberal-Radical-Third Way-Libertarian axis of evil.

    I agree that this is a magazine subscription tool. Of course, with my selections, I was not offered a subscription to American Spectator

    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    Nope...it's also poutine, arrogant Quebecois, and lots of taxes.

    I'd still live there though, if given the right opportunity.

    What?! I finally saw a Tim Horton's commercial and you want to tell me it's not all about donuts?

    I choose not to take those kinds of online tests.

    What a great way to allign online purchases with personal attitudes! If you don't regularly flush out your cookies, I'm sure doubleclick-dot-net and those other data gathering sites love it when you tell them all about your deepest personal beliefs.

    Talk about directed advertising!

    It's enough that they already know which IP address, zip code, and e-mail regularly corresponds to my credit number on Amazon and Ebay. They don't need to know my attitudes on abortion issues and cocaine legalization.

    And let's not forget a certain Mr. John Poindexter and his new Pentagon information gathering agency...
