If Bush wasn't mismanaging the US economy to the point of
suffocation, Canada's dollar would be around 72 cents US right now.
Thank-you President Bush!
It's only the beginning of the decline of the dollar.
The US treasury has reached it's debt ceiling and needs
to get authorization from congress to borrow more money.
The Bush administration is using every trick in the book to
delay this action until after the election.

Now that the election is getting down to the wire and (amazingly) Bush
has a chance to be (finally!) elected, the dollar is dropping to new

We claim to have the best education system in the world, but I suppose
that "best in the world" label only applies to our colleges, which are
filled with foreign students... only a fourth of Americans actually
finish a four year degree, so I guess an ignorant citizenry is to
expected... and to be exploited.
