WTF, we were supposed to annex Canada for all the good they will bring to the US. /sarc
In order to ensure that the CDN did not skyrocket relative to the USD the Canadian Gov't became one of the world's biggest subprime lenders AFTER the US housing bubble had burst. Canada WAS in a very strong financial position at that time, but gov't policy was actually designed to undermine the strength of the economy, hence the currency.
It really is criminal, and the only ones who benefit are Multinationals buying Canadian commodities.
Check out the latest from the Capital Research Institute (based in Canada!) "The Day The Standards Died":
We have spent a lot of time discussing the Gold standard and what it means to have the world reserve currency here at the Capital Research Institute. But today we want to look at something a little different, but just as crucial: the importance of accounting standards. OK, OK, I am hearing the yawns already, just bear with me! When the Financial Crisis hit in late 2008 not only did Capitalism die, when the Government decided bankrupt firms (of their choosing) should no longer be exposed to the risk of failure! The history books are going to be speechless on that one, and will simple relate: “It seemed like a good idea at the time!?!?” But what may have slipped under a lot of (non-accounting) people’s noses was that accounting standards were also effectively removed at that time. The most important of which were mark-to-market accounting rules.

"Canadian general to take NATO command of Libya"
That's what happens when the commander in thief can't find a way into his own house.
it's just a middle management position. that brigadier general isn't commanding anything.
Yeah, I know. I just can't help but reference Obummer trying to get into the house. So funny. I think someone was effing with him. Probably his kids. Or Joe.
He's what's known as a fire break.
I do hope Canada's participation in this "not a war" does become an election issue - ridiculous that we signed up for this with no discussion at all.
I hope he fares better than the last Canadian who was put in charge and then hung out to dry. Roméo Antonius Dallaire was the poor chap that got stuck with Rwanda. That didn't turn out to well.
It's a buying opportunity for Chinese solars
Loss of confidence bitchezz
Seriously, that's a man in that screenshot above, right? I can see the adams apple i sh*t you not.
looks like what's her face from CNBS carusso cabanera
I was wondering who would pick that up. Yeah, it is important be able to identify your ladyboys when bar-hopping in Canada.
+1. Yes, also the bone structure. This is a man (or was a man).
Strong words for a non-event.
The US gov sure didn't fail despite numerous marches, tea parties, Ron Pauls, etc. Am i biased, sure maybe a bit. Im also realistic though, as much as the current gov sucks, it won't get any better soon.
x2...isnt it like the 5th time the liberals pull this shit, just a huge waste of time
CANADA'S GOT OIL ... INVADE, INVADE!
Or at least a No-Fly zone!
forget oil, canada has righteous salmon. wild, no coloring added. LAUNCH!
Yeh, they had clean water befo yo USA polutshun came over the Falls.
Oh, shit. Really, we ruined Canadian Salmon? Ok, who's got good salmon...Alaska! Hurry up and get that Palin woman in office so we can invade Alaska. Palin can call the shots from her bedroom window. Kill two birds and keep an eye on Putin, too. I'm looking for a position as a strategist, btw.
Don't forget about Arctic Char.
We'll take the Char!!
Vote's taking place at 2 EST. Set your clock. I've bought some VIX calls. Bring on the volatility.
One step closer in forming NAU.
This is George Bushs' fault
Not another one! Will someone please slow this merry-go-round down a bit. I want to get off and colonize some tropical world off planet. Perhaps I can use some of that excess hydrogen being produced by the Fukushima disaster to achieve escape velocity.
When does America get a chance to have a "no confidence vote"? I feel left out. Why is it that every other country seems capable of tossing out corrupt politicians and we can't. I'm like TOTALLY jealous:-(
Yeah. Why do they get all the fun?
However my mother always reminded me that the grass is always greener........ :>)
Bet she would never realize that in the land of Iceland, the grass is indeed greener.
from personal experience I can say that greener grass is always better...especially if the buds are well formed with a slight hint of red/orange hairs...
Don't bogart that joint my friend. Pass it over to me.
LOL!!!! oh the memories associated with those words.
We could try and bid Discovery now that it is retired. The cargo area should be enough for the gold/silver bars :)
Who invited you? Unless you're a hot young blond who loves older balding men, this old fart's fantasy is closed to newcomers. :>)
ah fuck, a bid war for the only available space ship... What is another bubble?
Good point. OK, let's pool resources and dump this place. But don't tell anyone else. :>)
Is this the asshole that decided to tax the energy trusts after campaigning on a promise not to, and wiped out $100K of my wealth in a day?
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
Because it's classic.
Agreed, it was a classic.
Confirmed: Horatio Beanblower is not a lurking George Bush, Jr.
It's not real wealth until you convert it from the ether...
do they need a new goobermint to "merge" w/ us? go long the amero? why tf isn't the amero being traded, anyhow? it's imaginary? so what? if the banks can do it, why not the currencies?
