thinking about the Dollar

I have been thinking about the sinking dollar lately.  Kudlow MR. Supply side has been saying the low dollar is the end of America economy and leadership worldwide.  Not sure.  I agree if people stop buying it and stop buying Tbills.  But that hasn’t happened yet.  I asked a friend of mine who runs a hedge fund about it and being a hedgie he answered like this

the question with the dollar is against what?

dollar v gold = short
dollar v ag = short
dollar v oil = short
dollar v AUS/CA = short
dollar v Yen = long
dollar v Euro = long
So if you are going to trade the trend versus another commodity, those are your trades.  That doesn’t help me, a guy with alot of dollars and all my expenses in the US decide if I should diversify or not.
