You know when they started changing the way American money looks after like 50 years of quarters and dollar bills to make them look more like foreign monies?
They were planning to devalue the currency even then.
Think about it, man. Suddenly, you’re looking at your pile of change on your dresser and you can’t tell your fifty different US quarters from Canadian money or your nickels from other silver coins, and suddenly your big, colorful five dollar bills have a 3-d image of Lincoln on them. You start thinking, this isn’t the money I grew up with. This isn’t real money at all.
Then, BAM! It ain’t.
