Gawd, here we go again. Falcon you got this one rolling before, as you state in this post, and it sparked all kinds of pro and con arguments on this stuff. Wasn't that enough?
Ever heard that expression "a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing?" That sums up Lou Dobbs' grasp of the world, and it also applies to whoever put this entertaining little piece together. Maybe you don't mind your intelligence being insulted, but this kind of crap really gets to me. Maybe I've spent too many years researching and writing about the reality of these issues. When you dig into it, it can get quite boring, and definitely non-conspiratorial. But that wouldn't fit the Dobbs approach to journalism, would it.
Edited to add this:
Here's a more sober approach to the concept of the Amero, by one of those elites supposedly conspiring to make it happen.
Don't peg loonie to US dollar says incoming Bank of Canada governor
Wed Dec 5, 4:02 PM
The Canadian Press
OTTAWA - Canada's central bank should resist pressure to peg the loonie to the U.S. dollar, says the incoming governor of the Bank of Canada.
Mark Carney told a parliamentary committee that fixing the exchange rate would mean basically adopting U.S. monetary policy.
And he says there are too many differences between the Canadian economy and its American counterpart to even consider fixing exchange rates to the American dollar.
Some observers have suggested pegging the rate in order to prevent wild currency swings like the loonie's recent rise to well above parity with the greenback.
Carney's appearance before the committee was unusual in that no governor-designate has ever appeared before a parliamentary committee ahead of taking office.
He will be sworn in as new governor of the central bank, replacing the outgoing David Dodge at the beginning of February.
Carney takes the bank's helm at a difficult time - the strong loonie has ravaged important sectors such as manufacturing and tourism while the country's economy has generally kept growing.

Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.
