Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

The Battle of the Fiat Currencies

As of the time I started writing this, the Canadian dollar and the American dollar had the exact same value.  Once upon a time, a Canadian dollar was worth only 65 cents.  A few years ago, it was worth $1.10.  It had gone down to 89 cents before rising to what it is worth now – a dollar.

While Canadians are rejoicing because they finally have something that is equal to something American, it’s a sad day for Americans and a black eye on our soul.

As much as it pains me to do this, I will be boycotting hockey until this situation is rectified.  It is especially painful because my Capitals are on the verge of winning the Presidents’ Cup and are a favorite to win the Stanley Cup.

I will lead by example.  I’m not going to call for a boycott unless I plan on boycotting as well.  Anybody seeing me at the Verizon Center during a Capitals playoff game will be relieved to know that the only reason I am at the game is because somebody else bought the ticket for me and I am not spending me ever-weakening dollars on a Canadian sport.

  1. As much as it pains me to hear you are boycotting one of the few things that makes our country relevant, I can understand why you would feel this is a necessary step.

    And so long as you don’t boycott Celine Dion and maple syrup, there’s still hope that we might one day return to our rightful place as the currency underdogs.
