NEW YORK (Reuters) - In the latest example that the U.S. dollar just ain't what it used to be, some shops in New York City have begun accepting euros and other foreign currency as payment for merchandise.Its bad enough that China owns more than 30 percent of the United States' debt (that only happened under Bush). Now we have shops in New York City, supposedly a part of the United States, accepting Euros for purchases.
"We had decided that money is money and we'll take it and just do the exchange whenever we can with our bank," Robert Chu, owner of East Village Wines, told Reuters television.
This all happened under Bush's watch. Can we expect, now, that the Repignofascists in the House and Senate will call people who accept money that actually has some value (the Euro, the British Pound) "unamerican" because they have chosen to do business in a currency that isn't worthless as the American dollar has become under Bush?
And to think that Bill Clinton was impeached because he lied about a blow job. Wake up, sheeple.
