A Nation Of Idiots

I have said it before but it appears the USA is a nation of idiots.  I might could have overlooked the stupidity of the clerk but the manager?  No.  The police officer?  No.

    I've heard of it happening before.  $2 bills are pretty scarce, and everybody knows $3 bills are phony.  True story though, I was at a drug store in DC where the cashier gave a customer grief over a check.  In DC, checks from Virginia and Maryland are considered local, but require a manager sometimes.  Anyway, as the wise ass next in line, I asked her if the store accepted Federal Reserve notes, and gave her a new $5.  She looked at it, and had to call a manager over again.  Who also spent some time deciding.

      There are one billion $2 bills in circulation which accounts for only 3 percent of the total volume of notes, according to the Federal Reserve.  The problem is that cash registers don't have a place for them in the register; the same for $1.00 coins.  It will be unlikely that you will get a $2.00 note from a shop because they will stick them under the till and they go to the bank at the end of the day.   A Federal Reserve note is legal tender for all debts; so if you owe someone a debt, they have to take any legal tender.  However, in a sales situation, they can refuse to accept certain forms of payment; like 5000 cent coins to buy some item.  I think I will go to my bank and get some $2.00 notes to see what happens locally when I shop.

      Thank you for proving my point.  The last Treasury note was issued by Kennedy and they were promptly destroyed after his assassination.  I am sure that the majority of Americans have a Federal Reserve note in their possession so should know what one is.

    I would certainly agree that this shows extraordinary ignorance of those responsible, and there are likely others who wouldn't have known any better.

    Perhaps it was meant humorously, but to include the whole USA is an over-generalization.  There's a valid argument for around 35 to 40% being idiots, having voted for Trump and not yet realized how wrong they were.

    I suspect most countries in the world have their share of stupid people.  Maybe elsewhere they keep them better hidden.

      The idiots that did not vote for Trump voted for Hillary so that is a good indication of the stupidity of Americans.
