A weak dollar helps our goods compete overseas. We are doing great, huh. It increases gas prices, so that the federal government can come off as all concerned. Perhaps for the welfare of the energy traders,who can barely afford their exotic car collections. So let us keep the dollar low and then push through Cap and Trade, the coming mind blowing scam to save the world and benefit the exotic car collections of the traders of that. In the meantime, lets make it impossible for the poor to fill up their economy cars and ratty old pickups and pretty thoroughly destroy the rural lifestyle. When everyone has moved into the cities, people with exotic car collections will finally be able to really enjoy them, out on the very open road.
