    Nice. Maybe I'll write on a few of mine before I spend them. I am afraid that if Obama manages to take the next election, we'll have his likeness on all our money. Of course, so few will have any money that we won't have to look at his face.

    Defacing US Currency is a Crime. Under the Jurisdiction of the Secret Service. Best Be careful lest the Jackboot Thugs knock on your door.

    Lucky thing I did not deface US currency then, huh.

    In any case, you're not entirely correct...

    Of course, the GOP and the financiers that support them had nothing at all to do with 2008? One might also note that Obama was sworn in as President in 2009.

    Well, it's five months to the election, but at the moment, this does not look very likely.

    Nice. Too bad the author couldn't put their claims in context. For example, the $1.80 per gal of gas -- I guess there wasn't room enough to write that a couple of months before that drop in the price of gas, a gal cost $4.00 per gal, and that the reason for the drop in gas prices was due to the recession -- you know, the recession that happened during Bush's presidency. But hey, don't let those facts get in the way of a good lie :thup:

    Currency that has been written on, marked, burned, or otherwise defaced is pulled from circulation by the banks. Defacing money by writing all over it does little to spread the message but just adds to the cost of replacing it.

    Umm house values are now more in line with the rest of the economy.
    The housing bubble is a big part of why we are where we are now and some idiots want to go back to what caused it??

    Dumpasses.
