I am still on vacation with limited internet access (because I'm too busy enjoying real life outside the net), so I will make this short and sweet.
Today, I learned that the U.S. dollar and the Canadian dollar are now worth the same. Up until now, the U.S. dollar has always been worth more. The U.S. dollar has been in decline for several years.
I also learned a couple days ago that Alan Greenspan, who only recently retired as Chairman of the United States Federal Reserve Board and had served every President since being appointed by Ronald Reagan in 1987, has written a book that basically alleges George W. Bush is a fiscal incompetent who has made economic policy decisions for the United States based on political reasons rather than on sound economic principles.
I say Bush has taken us all to the cleaners --- the dry cleaners, that is.
I'm glad I have saved any Canadian money I had left over from various visits to that country. What an investment! I only wish I had more; I could have become rich because of it and Bush's financial mismanagement of our American economy.
On the other hand, my American dollars are only worth cents now!!!
Does this make sense? Bush has brought all Americans to their knees, except the wealthy Americans such as his buddy, Dick Cheney, and all his Haliburton friends and others like them.
