You got that right.

Why stop at two?  Just think what this government could do with 300 or 400 of these things.

Good times!

Why stop there?  This Fool could just commission to coin just over 300 million of these things and then give them out to all.  Problem solved.  We would ALL be Trillionaires!

So we. An arbitrarily designate a coin as having a value of 1 trillion?

Not quite.  Sigfried and Roy knew what they were doing.  Obama's Administration....not so much.

Sigfried and Roy had presentation and showmanship. Geithner and Bernanke lack both.

Why go through all the trouble? Just write 2 trillion in the checkbook ledger. Just say we have the money.
