New American Federal Reserve Tokens (AFRTs)

pawnstorm12's post on the new "Gold-Backed" $100 bill reminded me of this little piece of protest art I made back in 2006, before the Daily Paul was even a twinkle in my mind's eye:


I hope you get as much of a kick out of it as I did making it.

Friends, life is short. Enjoy it to it's fullest. Every day find something to be grateful for.

I am grateful for this life, and grateful to all of you, and these serendipitous connections we have made.

Ha ha! That is awesome!!

So clever : )) lol


Michael's brilliant creation (pun intended) brings up an...

...interesting point...Since all U.S. paper currency says "Federal Reserve Note" - why don't coins say "Federal Reserve Coins?"

I used to save all my coins thinking they were somehow different or might hold more value than paper, but I've mostly given up on that idea.

Except for certain coins like U.S. States and State Park quarters or nickels.

I keep all nickels because they're still made of 75% copper and 25% nickel.

Recently the copper content in a nickel is actually worth more than the face value of a nickel itself and it costs the mint a dime to produce a nickel.

How long will the U.S. Mint let THAT go on??? Not long - they are planning on changing new nickels to a worthless steel very soon.

More interesting nickel details here:

we will all talk about this

we will all talk about this in the spirit world. at the same time we watch the evil doers in the lower realms and make sure we do not let them into the upper.

Sheep's clothing covers ravenous wolves well enough, but banksters need to clad their tokens with pretty metals so their ravenous appetites will be hidden beneath their shiny-surface image.

Thanks Michael, for keeping this Liberty Torch shining brightly. Much love and prayer for the good of you, and those near you; to be bathed in abundant, warm, healing light, love, and sound.

Didn't you share this on your financial blog at the time?

EDIT: DUH! I just noticed the bullnotbull link below the pic! LOL

When I was initially scrolling down the main page and saw the pic, I scrunched up my nose and said I've seen this somewhere BEFORE.

WOW. A lot has happened since you 'coined' that pic. What a grand mile marker it is to see it again.

I will not comply

One Infinite Note is on par with one trillion F.A.R.T.s

Not at all - that was my intention

I am wondering if Zinc and Copper are 'too rich' for these

How about Chinese drywall coins covered with pyrite?
