51 States of America

16 May

After the earthquake in Haiti, the government had decided, in order to get troops and other public safety organizations as well as funding for rebuilding homes and businesses, to make Haiti a state.  This happened at 4:53, Tuesday, May 11th, according to Time Magazine.  A state hasn’t been added to our country since Hawaii on August 21, 1959.  So who knows what will happen now.  Maybe this will be better for our economy, maybe not.  I believe that it is almost impossible to tell at this time because of our current status of the economy.
