I love how I keep reading that Bush and other people are saying that the economy is strong yet jobless claims rose by 4,000 last week. Hrm, that doesn't exactly shout out "strong economy" to me. Instead it makes me think, yikes, I need to start savings cash like a fiend so that I am prepared when this recession starts.
Upon reading about our flailing economy I decided to check out the currency exchange rates. Before I even got a chance to do that though I saw that the dollar hit an all time low against the Euro yesterday. Sure makes me wish I was working overseas and getting paid in Euros :)
