    Why's the government so stupid?

    Is it safe to say the government makes everything way too complicated?

    I'm in a cash based business, every day upwards of 10 thousand dollars cash, mostly in small denomination, pass through my hands. It seems like every time I flip a switch there's a new design for a bill. It used to be that I could spot a counterfeit no problem, but now I don't even know what the real money is supposed to look like. Who the hell are we keeping in business by changing the money every 2 years?

    You can thank North Korea for it... their #1 export is US currency.

    Agreed. We have enough money problems without rogue nations counterfeiting it.

    If they did a true counterfeit of a 1 dollar bill, it'd actually be a quarter, a nickle, and 3 pennies. I mean if were talking 1:1.

    Thats myth, but Bernanke is a counterfeiting fool, and there was a story of counterfeit bonds. I cant remember the exact details but the story fell off the radar real quick like. i believe it had to do with Madoff's people.

    Still feeling this story up Sparta, but if you think those bills wont be in circulation somewhere, I got a bridge for you.

    So the government is giving a 2% tax break to small business'. A 2% tax break for most doesn't mean very much money, and by "not very much" I mean very little. What a 2% tax break does is force you to update your software, so any small business who's software is expired will have to pay quickbooks $375, which is more than "not very much" for a lot of small business'.

    What a racket.

    From what I have read, the NK export of fake dollars is real. No data on whether it is #1 export. I also rcently read that a major CF issue is people bleaching $1 bills and printing other denominations on them. Mostly Franklins. All bill "check-points" still there but denomination is higher. Anyone else hear about this?
