    There are two other questions/choices that top my list first though:

    1) how would world wide markets and ratings agencies react to the TDC?  Our fiat currency and financial systems are  all based on trust.  The debt ceiling vote is a ridiculous bit of theater but is the world ready to see the ridiculousness called out even more?

    2) What images would appear on the coin?  I was thinking Bo's head for "heads" and Boehner's butt getting spanked for "tails".

    •  If you are any other country, the US dollar (0+ / 0-)

      effects you no matter what and even though we are well past Bretton Woods. A stable US economy is essential for international economic health. If PPCS is how we get there, I don't think they care. I think they just want to know that we aren't going to default and we are going to stabilize and grow.

      As for the face on the coin, people are already saying Ronald Reagan and I'm sure I don't have to explain the irony there. LOL! I know I would love to see Martin Luther King on a coin...or a rabbit, but that's just me.

        To honor American Ingenuity, I suggested Bugs Bunny on the platinum coin's obverse, a long time ago.

        And Yosemite Sam on the reverse, to show our enemies we mean business!
