I've got some wooden nickles I'll sell you! Dollar apiece American

Actually all the points they make are correct - a vendor can set any payment policy it wants, you always could accept beads as payment but turn down dollars.

Dale and others,

I am VERY SERIOUS about the purchase of this 'new' currency!

Thanks

OMG - this thing is raising its head again! I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I am from the same city where these things were marketed. The website for the company that does them is here:

http://www.libertydollar.org/

To hear this guy - he is striking a blow for personal liberty and freedom. However, there are serious legal issues involved here. You can learn more about it here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberty_Dollar

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dy...6100900993.html

This is from our local paper:

http://www.courierpress.com/news/20...-LibertyDollar/

So, unless you want one or two just for collecting or for giggles, I'd suggest you steer clear. Trying to pass them could land you in a world of hurt.

Greg

Kicked out of everywhere else?

Unlike Lurker01, Jonathan is an actual old time rocketeer who actually talks about rockets, but I could really do without the Fox News crankery.

The same thing happened when the economy tanked in 1979. Some towns got together and set up a internal barter system.

The following is a joke:

Now, now...there's no need to insult Fox News.

Actually, they're the same person.
Seriously.

Default Hey Jonathan, What Flavor Is It?

Having drank from the Kool-Aid, they now need to peddle it to sustain their "high".
Seems like the other forums are less likely to tolerate their lemonade stand, in which Kool-Aid has been substituted.

Eventually, they will realize that people here are actually a little smarter than those scooping up the so-called "new currency", and he'll go the way of Lurker01...or are they one in the same?
Like the Tootsie Roll Pop, the world may never know.
