About the Nothing Store
As Obama and crew print and borrow more and more money, the U.S. dollar faces an uncertain future.
But three cheers for our Unmighty Dollars -- print as many as you like. They're already worth Nothing, so they can't go down in value.

The Smell 0f Money
Rumors are flying about the new Scratch 'N Sniff currency being developed by the Treasury Department as the latest tool to stimulate the economy.
Some say that marketing specialists high up in the Obama administration are directing the Scratch 'N Sniff program, and that chemists at the Mint are toiling away on embedding several new smells that will be released when bills are handled. Details are hard to come by, but a sure bet is that lower denominations like ones and fives that will give off the aroma of a Big Mac and fries. The hope is that inner city youth will waddle over to their nearest Micky D's and put this money in circulation.
Larger bills, 50s and 100s , will have that new car smell, just enough to subtly remind "consumers" how good it feels to drive the latest Gizzmobile.
Not to be outdone, some in Congress are planning an amendment to Obamacare to make all the mountains of new health care forms smell like chicken soup.
The bond folks are hot on this since the Chinese are no longer buying as many of our IOUs. New Treasury bonds will stimulate the senses with the gentle scent of jasmine flowers. We understand that the tempting Egg Roll T Bills were dismissed as politically incorrect.
Our only worry is that the organic molecules in the new currency will attract microbes, and our unspent money will begin to give off the odor of decay. Maybe this is part of the plan, a new way to prevent saving. Who wants to sleep on a mattress that sits atop a pile of rotting money? Yuk.
Upon reflection , we think we'll trade our smelly money for gold and silver, unscented and durable, as the Founders intended.
