A woman was arrested for counterfeiting in Tennessee after she tried passing off a fake five dollar bill at a market. The clerk called police, who arrested her after discovering she was trying to make a purchase with a counterfeit bill, both sides of which appeared to have been printed with a home printer and then pasted together. She was also in possession of a fake hundred-dollar bill in her purse that had been glued together with one side upside down. Authorities subsequently found in her home a printer, reams of printer paper and thousands of dollars in fake bills that wouldn’t even be believable as monopoly money.
Her defense was that President Obama had passed a law making it okay to print your own money. According to CBS Washington, she told police, “I don’t give a ****, all these other b****** get to print money, so I can too!” She was apparently referring to an article I wrote for TheSkunk.org in 2009 titled “Obama Wants Citizens to Print Their Own Money.”
It’s sometimes nice to see how far a reach my influence has.
