Obama's Trillion Dollar Platinum Coin

Tuesday, January 8, 2013 - 5:20 PM
We today glimpse the precise form of Obama's inflation sceptre.  It is a trillion dollar United States of America platinum coin . . . a mere coin . . . but worth (supposedly) a trillion US dollars.  With one (or several) of these coins Obama can destroy all our CDs' purchasing power and, for that matter, all of our savings of whatever nature.

Just a few such coins can bring the end of America.  And it's all completely legal.

Are we back to the doom and gloom Nostradamus predictions?

Geez, get a grip of yourself, will you? Just because it's conceivable, it doesn't mean it's going to happen.

Obama hasn't said anything about the trillion-dollar coin idea. But during the 2011 debate on the debt ceiling, he rejected a similar "escape clause" proposed by former President Bill Clinton to simply cite the 14th Amendment's language that the "public debt ... shall not be questioned."

Shorebreak:  Are you determined to make my ulcers even worse?  Where is Dr. Kevorkian?  Maybe we can get a Group rate! :)
