Since you feel so strongly about it, how about stepping up and doing something about it....... like give away all your money that has that same message on it.
Huh

It's extremely rare for many people to use actual cash any more. I don't think that "argument" poses a point any further; not as if it did to begin with, but I digress.

I'd say "many people" are using it if $480 Billion was printed last year.

If they aren't, a lot of mattresses must be getting stuffed, or an awful lot of liberals are buying a lot of drugs and shipping their share of the bills to Mexico.

Fallacy.

Perhaps we can refrain from fallacious arguments, eh?

They serve no purpose for any argument other than a make-believe notion they support the originator notion.

I know many people who do not use cash, ever. "Many people" in my line of work and surroundings do not use cash. Ever. Even in our "home life."

As my premise, it is also true with other people.

Many people do not use cash. With many, it is rare.

Fallacious arguments only negate your stance. If you wish to present an argument without a fallacy, then by all means do so...

The nation survived well enough before you freak parasites took it over. As the shadow on the land spreads and gets darker you will still be blinded by your beliefs of freedom that relies on taxes verging on extortion and going higher and higher. The tyranny expands and you slander and criticize those who would save your worthless azz. The constitution tells you what real money is since you are into it. It also tells of its checks and balances that was usurped by the elitists. The living document bull crap. Turn on zee ovens....but they will be ecologically good for the environment.

Okay.... "many" people don't use cash.

Five, six, a hundred, in your sphere of knowledge.

In the words of Ricky Nelson, your bucket has a hole in it.

Millions more than your "many" use cash, exclusively, for a lot of reasons.

They don't have checking accounts because they don't trust banks. I know "many" that fit that description.

I know "many" that don't want the government to be able to track their transactions simply because they don't trust the government.

I know "many" that write checks for cash at their banks simply because they don't trust debit cards and prefer having the cash in their billfolds.

Your argument is as effective as Obama's budget.

You get back to me when your "many" becomes the majority.

I'm a conservative.

I do not deal with fallacious arguments for valid reason.

Your premise was to tell atheists to stop using money that contained "In God We Trust."

My point was it is a rather moot point since cash-in-hand is rare for many people; ie, making the point irrelevant overall. Not all people. But many. It doesn't matter about the majority. As the point is irrelevant because no one can change it anyway.

I do not know how many crayon colors I need to use...

False presumption on your part.

My premise was not to tell atheists to stop using money. It was to tell YOU to stop using it.

Actually, it was to another poster.

Moot point, nonetheless. I've already stated I don't use cash; I'm not sure what goal you're trying to reach by telling someone not to use cash when they don't already.
