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.

Off to DC!

I am heading to Washington as soon as this blog entry is posted.  I should be in Washington by 1:00PM.  I’ll have some time to dilly-dally and campaign before picking up my daughter Patricia from school at 3:45.  We’ll spend time at Chuck E. Cheese playing arcade games before heading to the Verizon Center to watch the Capitals play the Tampa Bay Lightning.  I’ll buy her a replica Alexander Ovechkin jersey and an Alexander Semen Semin jersey for myself.

We will head to Wal-Mart after the game.  I am going to let Patricia pick out her present this year.  I am not always the best gift buyer.  We will go to my parents’ house (providing my father remembers that we are coming late after the game) for the weekend.

Tomorrow will be a day for sight-seeing.  Patricia will probably see all of the famous DC landmarks like I did growing up in Washington.  I saw them on class trips and seeing sights on class trips usually sucked except for not being in class that day.  Tomorrow will be the Washington Monument, the Supreme Court Building, and the the Royal Palace Gentleman’s Club.

I will be stopping at rest areas to check my e-mail.  If I come across anything interesting I will mention it on my Facebook page.
