A New Low

Give credit to our current Administration for not giving us much to be contented Americans about, at least on a world-wide scale. I won’t go into examples, but suffice to say the good ‘ol USA is not the world leader, influencer, or model example we used to be.

So given that there’s little at the moment to croon about along the Americanism lines, the crowning blow finally arrived yesterday: our currency is now worth less than the Canadian dollar. As our world-position on the money markets crumbled over recent times, we’ve always been able to be above our friendly neighbors to the north. Not. Any. Longer.

But what the heck, we’re still ahead of the peso to the south. So at least we haven’t hit the bottom…yet.
