So, you friendly Americans...most Brits, France all have tropical islands that accept local currancies of that particular nation. 20 years ago Canada had an offer from the tropical islands of Turks and Caicos to join the Conferation of Canada.....Sooo, we Canadians would have our own tropical island that accepted Canadian dollars, have duty free travel, no taxes etc. But of course our gov't dropped the ball and said no...I always wondered why a G8 nation like Canada does not have an annexed tropical island....

Imagine having a tax free nation....a TROPICAL nation... to vacation all the time.

I got all of this from checkin out a sunday evening talk show and I'm particularily distressed about it. Good thing its summer...oh wait a minute, its June 8th, cloudy and 11 degress Celsius...freakin hell

See what kinda madness I get myself into when my car is in the shop??
