Not April Fools

Idiot congresswoman wants a constitutional amendment that says "The President may not enter into a treaty or other international agreement that would provide for the United States to adopt as legal tender in the United States a currency issued by an entity other than the United States."

This isnt about preventing burger king in NYC from taking Euros... or the Starbucks in Laguardia from taking CAD... or Proctor and Gamble from making coupons for toothpaste you can use at the Piggly Wiggly... it's about keeping the the govt from giving the power of the federal reserve to a foreign power.

Umm... last I checked the largest percentage taking govt paper were foreign nationals already... so dont they control that situation now as it is. Are you suggesting the use of basket currencies by US firms should be illegal? or that the US set a fixed exchange rate for the dollar? What exactly is she trying to accomplish with this constitutional amendment... and why arent other equally important issues put into the constitution as well - i'm pretty sure the nation is equally in dire need of a constitutional amendment banning the president from entering into an international accord allowing human/raccoon sex.
