Who among us has not played Monopoly? Remember the many-colored, funny money that had value only in the game? Well that is what US currency is rapidly becoming. Only the very wealthy have enough of it for it to have some value. The rest of us work for small amounts of currency that buys less and less as we try to survive paycheck to paycheck. And the wealthy who have plenty of it can treat US currency the way it should be treated, as funny money. Only the joke is on us as we sit idly by and allow our legislators to pin this joke on our backs. This and future generations will bear this sign, “I’m down and out. Kick me.”
