  2. If this happens and politicians think it's a solution then that just shows how fucking deluded with there own bullshit they are.
     
  3. That's a coin you don't wanna lose in the washer machine
     
  4. "We should put the face of Charles ponzi on the coin."
     
  5. oceans 14 - steal the trillion dollar coin

    would make for a good movie.
     
  6. Trillion dollar coin. Put Tyrone Biggums on the face because that is some crackhead shit.

    "Check it, check it, check it, Bernanke. You see dis, you see dis coin right here?! It's worth a trillion dollars, a trillion! Let me jus, let me jus deposit it right quick and I, and I'll be on my way."
     
  7. Another distraction.
     
  8. a good lotr parody could be made here.

    shit goes nuts once they create the coin, and the only way to destroy is to take it back to where it was forged, anyone who holds the coin gets seduced by its power, etc.
     
  9. I swear a few years back people were joking about this same scenario...:eek:

    Why not just digitally print $1Trillion dollars? Its the same thing lol. This shows that people do not have a fundamental understanding of economics.

    rofl @ that headline "UPDATE: Suddenly, Lots Of Influential People Are Talking About The Trillion Dollar Coin Idea To Save The Economy"

    Tyrone biggums Trillion dollar crack party!!
     
  12. i'm an economics student ... it won't work.
     
  13. Why doesn't Obama just take a shit and deposit it in the federal reserve and call it a trillion dollars?
     
  14. 1.6 trillion owed to the federal reserve, making the coin would basically be writing that debt off like ron paul advocated. So before you guys shit on the idea, it was originally ron pauls.
     
  15. No, Ron Paul wanted to repudiate the debt (or tell the federal reserve to go fuck themselves), not print money to pay it off..

    The coin idea is no different that printing it digitally.. Which they are already doing now (QE1,2,3,4, + infinity)
     
  16. ya i think a trillion dollar coin is the equivalent of telling the federal reserve to go fuck themselves.
     
  17. The only people that would get fucked by this are the American people through some type of inflation. It doesnt matter if you create it digitally, print it off the presses, or smelt it into a little coin. They are all exactly the same.
     
  18. This has got to be a shitty joke or something. Did The Onion fool the site
     
  19. no the idea has been around for a few years.
