We all knew this would happen. It's been like the big pink elephant in the room. Wait, it's been more like ten huge pink elephants with guns and top hats.
The exchange rate is now 1 to 1.0012 between the US dollar and Canadian dollar, respectively.
Isn't that great. Just now, while I was writing this, it's gone down to 1.0010.

We've done it, America. We're now on par with Junior Varsity America. In a few weeks the Canadian dollar will surpass ours and our towns will be overrun by the mounties and maple syrup will rain from the skies while poutine erupts from the ground.
I, for one, welcome our new amusingly-accented overlords. The prospect of Canadian bacon and french fries drenched in cheese and gravy might not sound that good, but this might help me learn French a bit quicker.

The Saudis have stopped using the dollar, the Euro is completely owning us, and the US Treasury is about to reach its debt limit. Oh, and the housing market will continue to suck for a while. This is awesome. Who wants a good economy? If you want a good economy you're anti-American.

Really, this doesn't have anything to do with the billions-a-week war that we're waging. It's no wonder Bush opposed expanding children's health care.
War vs. Saving Children. It's an easy decision because war is so much cooler. There's explosions and guns. Children are just the future of humanity. Yawn.
