In reply to comment: uh no "bro" (see in situ)

What's the matter Dave? Cat got your tongue?

I see you have been commenting elsewhere but it seems that you are shying away from addressing the facts I directly challenged you to confront; why is that?

I was truly looking forward to getting the expert opinion of a bona fide lawyer on this subject.

I thought you were going to illuminate everyone on what you think James Madison meant at the constitutional convention when he said that "striking out the words cut off the pretext for a paper currency, and particularly for making the bills a tender either for public or private debts."

He was of course referring to the fact that the convention, by a vote of more than four to one, refused to grant to the legislature of the United States the power "to emit bills on the credit of the United States."

Perhaps I need to go get an economics degree to properly interpret his words? I do humbly admit that I am just a simple lay person but his stark language does seem quite lucid even to me, is there something I am missing? Please do tell; I am all ears eagerly awaiting your response.
