LOL.  Very symbolic.  You know how there's a spider web on the old 20 (haven't looked in a while)?  This is a sign.  The FRB is crapping on our liberties and laughing about it.

Did you notice the "it's" is spelled "its"? i guess they're not big on attending to the details there. I wonder what other errors there are.

The only thing I know, it will be plastic to discourage all those critics of paper currency.

it will be dispensed in roll form and perforated. the big question is whether it will be moistened with oil to keep from scratching delicate posterior areas.

To ensure long-term value, they should use weed rather than traditional paper/fiber.

Where is the Hussein $3 bill?  I know they got ink to print that baby!!  LOL

 

Just think, if I put one Obama $3 bill, with two George $1 bills,  I can rent me a Lincoln from Timmy "Treasury" Geithner for .005% interest.  Sweet!

Traditional way, results not guarantied. You can use bidet for final finish.

And please remember the sage words of singer Sheryl Crow to only use one Federal Reserve Note to wipe that ass so that you can do your part to help save the environment.

Can't have folks counterfitting currency, and passing it on to us 'rubes.  Unless you are the Fed of course!

Just got off the phone with the FED,  they said they can't make the $3 Obama bill, because they don't have any BLACK ink, all they got is RED!!  LOL

Um, what is the point of this new money??  To prevent counterfitors? HA!! 

 

I am not the least bit worried about my neighbor printing money, but I am pissed about the Federal Reserve/Governmnet.

 

Know its features, know its real?  WTF is real about it? 

Trying to instill confidence in the sheeple and its disgusting. 

 

Obey the money masters.

They can put all the saftey features on it they want, won't stop the check-out girl at K-Mart from marking it with a black felt tip pen every time you present it to her for payment of store items.

This yahoo article says,

"It's part of an effort to stay ahead of counterfeiters as technology becomes more sophisticated and more dollars flow overseas..."

Would the overseas dollars have anything to do with the pallets of money we sent to Iraq? (someone help me out and post the picture)

"It's part of an effort to stay ahead of counterfeiters as technology becomes more sophisticated and more dollars flow overseas..."

With over two thirds of all US currency already overseas, what's the point?.

"It's part of an effort to stay ahead of counterfeiters as technology becomes more sophisticated and more dollars flow overseas..."

 

This is a very misleading statement...  They are the counterfeiters, the people are the ones who should decide how to store and exchange their labor/productivity, HELLO!?

All of us at zero already know this, but out in the real world we have a very long uphill battle to change the minds of the majority out there.

You statement carries so much truth. It is a terrible mistake to assume that two people exposed to the same information will assimilate and regurgitate it in the same manner. We all have the tendency to use what information fits our hopefully ever changing world view and discard the rest because it doesn't "fit".

I talked about this in my article about the consciousness, about the need to hold our world view gently like a butterfly rather than a heavy sack of potatoes, which we must hold tightly. If we are light with our touch, we can quickly and easily let go of our worldview for needed modifications and expansions and then just as easily pick it back up again to be used to further our understanding. We would all be surprised how much we miss/block on a daily basis. Alas, even this idea will be blocked by most.

CD, the what if.. question comes again.

The US may impose substitution and retiring of the old notes with a deadline. Oh Shit! moment arround the world.

Think of all the problems. How do you explain to your bank about the suitcase with 100k?

Turn all cash into silver and gold now.

Beat me to the obvoius comment: The Feds are the only ones who are counterfeiting...much worse than any [other] gang could...

I do not see where that's a viable explanation, since 2/3rds+ of all printed US Currency is OUTSIDE the USA now.

Am I just being picky, or should someone at this level of government know the difference between "its" and "it's?"

Doesn't exactly inspire confidence in our financial overlords, not that anybody should be feeling any.

This is a recurring PR confidence-building stunt that Treasury does to show people just how "special" their "money" is.  Pure theater.  See not the "message", but the embedded message: "Your money is special!  It's sophisticated!  It's modern!  TRUST IT!"

As Sheryl Crow says, one square a day makes the hemmorids go away.

Actually, with a $100 USD, you'd have to cut it in have to save money.

And there you have it.

I love how the $100 is printed in "GOLD"!!!

Oooooooooooh!  I'm mesmerized.  So shiny...it makes me want to OWN and HOLD Federal Reserve Notes for the power and prestige they will bring to me when the SHTF.

Anyway, this is all for naught, as long as the old $100 bill without all the fancy bullshit is still accepted as legal tender.

And they know this.

This is panic.  Desperation.  Pathetic.

Ahh, it is a nice looking banknote, but now I will be forced to flush out my old ones for gold (and get new FRNs from the bank when available).

Wonder how much longer the OLD $100 bills will be good for.

They saved the best for last.  Wish they did like Europe, printed 500 Euro (for us $) notes, save some space...

Well, when I'm back, it's off to the gold store again...  At least I now have my wife on board.

I am in Italy for now.

And you are not.
