Don't know if this has been posted already, but the Canadian Dollar has surpassed the US Dollar.

Did anyone notice how Canada is on top of the US and sort of looks like the US's hat? And did anyone notice how Mexico sort of looks like the US's beard?

This is what happens when you fund things by printing money like there is no tomorrow 24/7/365 instead of cutting spending. It's called inflation. Hyper inflation is just around the corner.

Australia has been at/above parity for a while now, it seems like everyone is joining the club.

No this is what happens when citizens are blind and only care and want tax breaks when we really need to RAISE taxes to help fund a stupid war and a growing medicare debt.

No one would buy it here then... everyone in the US wants to get away with doing as little as possible, getting payed as much as possible, and owning as much as they can...

The exchange rate has been going back and fourth over the past few years, ever since the real estate bubble crapped itself.

The exchange rate confused me and I read it upside down. :(

If contemporary USA = the Weimar Republic, who gets to be Hitler? I hope you don't say Obama, that joke is beyond old.

It's been above parity by 3 for months. I expected the Canadian dollar to hit 1.10 by April, maybe by fall.
