#2 Yokay, I'll bite, did I just read that DepTreas Spox Coley said "the Coin" is to be used only for purposes of increasing the US Debt [indexation?], NOT to lower the US Debt OR to AVOID RAISING THE US DEBT LIMIT???

#10 As others have pointed out already, why not just make it $googolplex and solve all of our money problems forever?
