New Dollar coin "In God We Trust" IS GONE!
The printing of these coins was supposedly an accident - it was only to "test the waters" for what they plan to do, by removing that from all new currency.
From Antoniette D. Walker
REFUSE NEW COINS
This simple action will make a strong statement.
Please help do this. Refuse to accept these when they are handed to you. I received one from the Post Office as change and I asked for a dollar bill instead. The lady just smiled and said 'way to go', so she had read this e-mail. Please help out....our world is in enough trouble without this too!!!!!
U.S.Government to Release New Dollar Coins
You guessed it 'IN GOD WE TRUST' IS GONE!!! If ever there was a reason to boycott something, THIS IS IT!!!!
DO NOT ACCEPT THE NEW DOLLAR COINS AS CHANGE
Together we can force them out of circulation.
Please send to all on your mailing list!!!
Per Snopes, it’s false: http://www.snopes.com/politics/religion/dollarcoin.asp
Is this a joke?
NOT THIS AGAIN!
They are all hoping we can use their godless fiat currency excuse for money to buy the government’s new green fiat car.
Like a bad penny, it keeps turning up...
It’s printed on the edge. People should be more worried about the fiat “value” of said coinage.
It’s on the rim of the coin.
Was this story issued by African Press International?
You really shouldn’t believe everything you read in an email. Please, some critical thinking is called for. This thing is a couple of years old and debunked so many times it’s not funny, yet the naive continue to fall for it.
A Moose bit my sister, she lost her cheese.
LOL!! It is HUGH!
I didn’t check all previous coins but the 2009 release certainly have it http://www.usmint.gov/mint_programs/$1coin/index.cfm?flash=yes .
Use my tag line as a back up if needed.
Shower on, LOCK AND LOAD!
Dang it, you can’t trust Scopes to spell “is” right.
Don’t care one way or the other.
What is printed on money doesn’t affect my faith in God in any way at all, ever.
There are two ways to take a particular form of currency out of circulation... by not accepting it, and by not spending it.
I would say that the former would be an ineffective means of protesting the new coin for two reasons...
1. not enough people would do it
2. the person owing you the money could legally claim the debt paid for your refusal to accept the US backed currency.
The latter method could have a more lasting and more profitable result... by hording these coins and not spending them, we could keep them out of circulation.
If enough people did that, the same impact would be felt at the treasury, the policy would be changed, and those who horded the coins might even make a little money on them down the road. As long as they are kept out of circulation, and enough people refused to SPEND them, the same result may be possible.
Here’s another idea....
We could alter the new coins by imprinting “in God we Trust” on them, and then spend them.
poor noob, not to worry, it won’t be the last time...I still get caught once in a while..*LOL*
Instead of “In God We Trust,” it says, “Obama Doesn’t Like Competition.”
I also heard the Iranians were going to destroy the value of the dollar by pricing their massive oil exports in Euros. And China is going to dump all US securities. And the US is going to respond by getting rid of US currency in favor of a joint, multinational currency of the Americas. Oh, and Jerry “The Beaver” Mathers was killed in Vietnam.
Wow! A believer who isn't an hysterical ninny.
Probably more common in the "real" world than on the 'net. :)
This was discussed about 3 years ago. It was also believed at the time if the iranians did this it would be all over for them.
