As much as I like to order when the dollar here is on par with the USA dollar, something tells me this is not good, "again", jeesh!

Unfortunately true, it is not good in general. Good for some, but it will dry out. For Canada, largest outsourcing country for US in some few areas, it means - not any more... Good buy jobs.

Yup things are actually best when our dollar is around 85 cents to one USD. So other then online ordering overall it really is not a good thing. I do wish the US gets some good luck and gets out of the tank soon.

I like it when the US dollars is high compared to the Euro so that the price of Mikado and Kontronik stuff is less.

I like it when the US dollars is high compared to the Canadian dollars as well so that I can buy Western Robotics stuff.

What I don't like is when the US dollars is low. I guess it would be good if we had lots of exports that people wanted to buy from us, but as it stands right now we have a huge trade deficit with China so we're not doing much exporting anyways.

It might seem good now where able to buy our toys and bigscreen tvs much cheaper, but it wont seem so good when we need Americas aircraft carier battlegroups and f18 super hornets to rescue us from being invaded by the Chinese, but they cant help us because they dont have enough money to pay for the fuel to get them here.

Ohh as an active duty sailor I know that our country will always make room for the military when the going gets tough. Right now the economy around the world sucks, but it could always be worse.. Lets just prepare for the worst and hope for the best! BTW, our carriers only need fuel once every ten years. Nuclear power baby!! Haze Grey and underway is the only way to be!

what does a dominatrix have in common with a heli? Both beat something into submission!
