Screw "Fair And Balanced!" Whatever happened to the journalistic 
standard of honest and truthful? The only reason I mentioned the current 
"powers that be" is BECAUSE they ARE the current "powers that be." I 
would have said the same thing about the Democrats were they been the 
ones in power. What I find doubly damning, though, is that the current 
"powers that be" are being hyprocritical of their avowed "Scrooge" 
monetary policy.

The truth is that dropping the one dollar bill is (as a coin collector 
friend says) political suicide for whomever (REGARDLESS OF PARTY) 
proposes it. That's because of the warped (IMHO) view of the situation.

Why do people underuse the two dollar bill? Why do so many people throw 
down only paper money when making a transaction, then are bewildered as 
to what to do with the change? Why don't people consolidate their change 
with every transaction? All these questions and more are retorical, but 
they illustrate the point as to why so many people are hung up on their 
ineffecient and backwards money-handling practices. And all of which 
negatively impacts the government's bottom line, as I pointed out on how 
wasteful printing all those one dollar bills really is.

And BTW, notice that I, for the second time, have added VVtalk to the CC 
list. Now delete the VV address, if you want to discuss it any further.
