    Will Americans use them?

    Canada dropped both the one and the two...the $2 bill was our great little secret....and other than suit pant pockets wearing out sooner it's been fine, sure makes a difference in doing laundry!

    But then we have phased out the penny now and have also brought in polymer weave bills they say will last 50 to 70 years, can be washed for cleanliness and have all the cocaine removed....

    so do that, it's kind of cool having money you can see through...the only problem is it disappears from your wallet as fast as ever

    Only in a sea of cash users. These days any big ticket purchase without a credit card would be easy to program a flag. The sales staff would be far more likely to remember cash customers in a sea of credit cards. cameras everywhere... getting cash would be on some security cam... tighten up that tin-foil bonnet...

    But fear not- as long as hookers, strippers and drug dealers abound so will cash...

    It's the little purchases that matter.

    Well they only take cash. Not so much of a need, more of privacy thing, corps don't need to track, follow, categorize and track every single thing I purchase. I refuse to use store "reward" cards too.

    I am all in favor of a dollar coin but it would have to be a different size than a quarter. It was the size of the Susan B. Anthony dollar coin that killed it. Now a dollar coin about the size of an old 50 cent piece just might fly. I am also in favor of doing away with the penny. When I was stationed in Germany, we did so. The prices remained the same in the PX, but when one checked out if the last digit or cost ended in 1 or 2 it was rounded down to 0, 3 and 4 upped to 5, 6 and 7 down to 5 and 8 and 9 up to ten. No pennies.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    The last time I was in Alberta, someone joked the toonies weight too much to be popular with the strippers.
