I just saw this on HSN and couldn't believe it . . ..

I think most of the shopping channels are selling Obama-merchandise. They are all about sales, after all - so they are selling what is being championed as “commemorative”, “historical”, and “collectible”.
I guess there were inspired by McCain’s skit on “Saturday Night Live” (with McCain/Palin “renting” airtime on QVC to counter-balance Obama’s infomercial).
I know, but the ironic pun in the title (theirs, not mine) is just too delicious.
The idiots on the left will blow their welfare checks on those worthless things.
How do you make a small fortune in Obama coins?
Start with a large fortune.
I saw it on FoxNews just a short time ago. I thought it was funny that they said “a $24.99 value, now for just $9.99”.
I had to go to Wal Mart today and was struck in the check out line of all of the mag covers with the ONE and the front page of today’s Toledo Blade devoted to this nothing person. It all makes me ill...
Hussein the Savior Network?
Buy it for $24.95 today and it will be worth .05 cents in 6 months.... ;)
United States currency and coinage are governed by federal law through the U.S. Treasury Department. Generally, it is illegal to fraudulently deface, mutilate, impair, diminish, falsify, scales (sic) or lightens any coins minted or “coined” in the United States or any foreign coins which are by law made current or are in use or circulation as money within the U.S. (18 U.S.C. 331)
It is also a crime to fraudulently possess, pass, publish, sell or attempt to possess, pass, publish, sell or bring into the U.S. any such coin with knowledge that the coin has been altered, mutilated, defaced, etc. (18 U.S.C. 331)
Defacing currency with the intent to alter the bill to gain a benefit is illegal. If someone alters a written instrument (such as a check) without permission and with the intent to gain a benefit, then it is called forgery, which is a crime. If one tried to alter a cash bill (like changing a $5 bill to a $20 bill) for the purpose of presenting the altered bill to gain a benefit, then that could be considered a forgery. Forgery of United States Currency in this manner is called counterfeiting and carries with it very stiff penalties.
at least Diana did some good...
Indeed. If they only knew.... (or maybe some do?)
Lol. FNC must have put the ad into its regular rotation; I saw it again just a couple of minutes ago. I was tickled at the "value price", too. Erm, has it already been relegated to the clearance bin? Hey, buy two Obama coin collections and they'll throw in some Mighty Putty, a Swivel Sweeper, and three Shamwows.
Nobody is buying the Change change?

In my local Pa paper today, I saw something about a new $3.00 bill with Obama as the face on the bill. I am still not able to stomach hearing or reading anything about the ONE.
That is funny. I wish someone would call in and ask about Obama’s change. “What denominations are they? It looks like a quarter, a dime, a nickle and a penny. 41 cents in Obama change!”
Keep the change.
Isn’t it illegal to put the face of a living person on a bill?
Every home needs one of these! Put it right next to your picture of Jesus! (Wanna guess how many people do?)
