Dollars, Sense, and Rats

I've posted before about the $500 million per year we would save if we went to dollar coins instead of dollar bills. The amount of money we would save if we scrapped the penny reaches the billions. Various news reports are talking about whether the new dollar coin will succeed.

The answer is probably no. Why? Because some stupid folk want to keep printing the paper bills. Perhaps the bane of democracy is that decisions drift towards the stupid due to some yet to be distinguished social theory. Cheney and Bush can hijack the nation into a war, but our government can't make the painfully obvious decision to save billions of dollars by scraping obsolete currency that makes no sense.

The dollar coin will succeed just fine WHEN WE SCRAP THE DOLLAR BILL.

They have apparently printed some 50,000 of the first batch of 300 million without the "In God We Trust" or "E Pluribus Unum" that is supposed to be on the side. Wow. Printing on the side of the coin? Bet that was cheap.

Who knows what currency we'll have in 2050? With our luck, we'll still be making pennies and paper dollars. Sheesh.

Those $#$&@#$ rats are STILL in their @#$&#% hole. Unbelievable. They could have just walked outside, a simple pop, and moved on without a sound or a peep. We now have to call in the equivalent of an air strike, which makes more noise and involves more people, and sure enough, I now know that a certain elected official has been completely briefed, and how much control do you think I have over what a certain elected official chooses to say?

If our air strike is successful, it will leak some places, but hopefully we can keep it from the reporters. My anonymity is toast and soon.

Godless coins ... obviously all part of some liberal plot to divest this country of all traces of it's Christian heritage. Or something.

I think the last sentence of your first paragraph should reference the dollar coin, not dollar bill.
