These are some proposed new bank notes for our land of the free.
Assuming the 20%+ of unemployed Americans ever get jobs again this is what their dough may look like. We're almost 100 years overdue for a major overhaul of our currency. There's all sorts of noises that we'll finally get one soon.
The "Teabaggers" want Ronny Reagan on the $50. dollar bill. Many would love to see Joe Lewis, aka the "Brown Bomber" on the new $25. bill. The Feds are also thinking of issuing a $200. bank note as well. Makes sense what with prices being what they are.
I'd like to see Chief "Crazy Horse" on that one. ($200. dollar bill) He's already on stamps, and his great mountain memorial will soon rival Mount Rushmore.
They're already changing the coins. The nickles, and quarters regularly change with regional symbols.
They keep trying out dollar coins, but they suck. No one likes them because they're small, and always bland. ...also the 'phony' gold plating wears off too fast.
Unattractive, and or boring small dollar coins confront folks with proof that the dough is nearly worthless. They already know this, but would rather not have it rubbed in their faces.
There must be a way of abolishing this whole ancient, and evil wealth/poverty/money cycle. After all those anarcho/socialist/space guys on "Star Trek",tm, seem to have pulled off that trick okay.
I mean I've watched every episode, and all the movies. Even number five which got boos from a Trekkie audience. Heck they even threw stuff at the screen it was so bad,...but they stayed for the whole movie. ...as did I. Even stood in the damned snow waiting to get in!
Trekkers can put up with almost any sort of dreary shit from the writers,...except for Start Trek Five,...don't get me started.
("Star Trek V",...good grief had these guys no shame!)
Anyway these future space folks never had a Galactic Depression. I never saw homeless Vulcan's, or garbage on the streets of Indus V. No dog shit in front of Star Fleet Headquarters neither. Sure dogs might be extinct by then, but you gets the point.
