I could never understand why this country hasn't moved from paper to coins like Canada did with the Loonie & Toonie........

Unless of course it's because Canada is full of those nasty leftist Nazis/Commies/Fascists/Etc. with all that nationalized health care!

The only way for dollar coins to succeed is to stop printing paper dollars and phase them out.
In the short term, it will cost more to produce coins, but in the long term, it will save billions.

It costs 16 cents to make a $1 coin, and each has a life span of about 30 years. It costs 6.2 cents to make a $1 bill, and they have a life span of about 21 months.

Usually agree with you....but that billion figure, seem's a bit out there.....paper money comes from renewable sources.....

Because OGC, the Obama Greenback Company, can't mint coins as fast as they can print paper.

As anti-mining as this administration is, if we switched to coinage, Obama would have to mold plastic wafers in order to have enough material to keep up with this unprecedented devaluing of our dollar.

Another progressive term and we'll be using poker chips as currency. They're about as valuable as the dollar now and it would be an appropriate symbol of the gamble we'd be taking just spending a couple bucks knowing the odds of ever getting them back are about as great as beating the Washington DC casino.

LOL ... Good one!

Although according to you liberals Bush is terminally responsible for everything from eating the forbidden fruit to the popularity of that little bastard Justin Beiber.

According to SIB the lib, Obama is considered innocent by means of naivety. Not sure how 4+ years of "naivety" is still considered acceptable, but you libs make the rules, so keep printing greenbacks like Skittles and keep differentiating wars by Bush's land variety and Obama's drone strike kind :)

Yep, and Obama will go down as the "Naive-est" president in history, therefore we must all feel sorry for him and deem him immune from any and all criticism ... especially Obamacare.

Blue, we should co-author the "History of Shitty and Naive Presidents". Chapter One would just be a picture of Obama, clad in angel wings, pointing a finger at a devil-horned Bush. Caption: "It's All Bush's Fault."

First and only paragraph would read: If you don't the above caption you're a redneck racist. The end.

Greed has been evident in every society since the dawn of time. It's part of the human nature thing.

Yes but i am thinking, if we really looked, just a bit harder....we might find it in more forms today, than at any other time in our country's history.....
