For a guy who claims to understand economics and monetary theory, you're sure failing to grasp the most simple concepts here.
Yeah, it's that or you missed something. Either I, and everyone else who has commented on the legality of the coin approach misunderstood a simple fact that you inferred with no actual knowledge of the mechanics...or...you missed something.
Let's reiterate the "everyone else" includes former Treasury secretaries, Nobel Prize winning economic theorists, constitutional scholars (Larry Tribe at the diploma factory I hung out at, for instance) etc.
We're either *all* incorrect....or you missed something.
Occam s razor and all that, obviously we're all wrong. It's weird how you can pinpoint when you start to go to crazytown, and in some ways so disappointingly easy to manipulate.
