    And you need to pay people to take the bills out of circulation, and collect the bills, and determine if the bills are legit, and so on and so forth. That takes resources.

    How would you know sir? Burning American currency is against the law the last time I checked, so if you're burning it you're a criminal. Cue Desi!

    I burn piles of American currency, dance around the flames, and sing karoke in my front yard.

    By the time they get finished with this, $100 won't be worth 50.

    This looks hideous. America easily has the worst paper currency of the industrialized world.

    They don't have strips in the paper and it isn't watermarked to fuck. Ben Franklin is wearing a lavender pimp suit and is surrounded by a bad acid trip.

    I'm not comfortable that it says 'special men' all over it, too.
    It's hardly subtle, and its going to piss off the women.

    What? That's Australia's first Prime Minister, the great Jim "Eucalyptus" Coon himself.

    They are obviously adding more color to the bills wonder if they will go the same route as Canada, Australia or using plastic instead of paper/linen.

    Laugh at the wacky colors but a lot easy to keep track of what cash you have when the bills are different colors.

    I have no problem if they want to go to plastic bills, but just DO IT ALREADY! Every 3 years they take one more expensive baby step towards it, so just do it.

    Now the liberal democrat way would be to print an extra $3.79 million in redesigned 100's to cover that cost. Problem?
