i dont think anybody really likes it, but its a lot better than $2.50 that they were planning on raising the fare to.

The shape does not authorize fiat money and actually demands States to pay bills purely in gold or silver. Gold and silver oftentimes variety in value. it is fairly a mirrored photograph of variability in our money's value. evaluate some thing so you might purchase in the present day it is been interior the flow of commerce "invariably." i like to think of of a great extra healthful. no longer a "suitable shelf" clothier one-off or something, yet a great adapted extra healthful. One or 200 years in the past, a extra healthful like that would run relating to the comparable as an oz. of gold. in the present day, a extra healthful like that runs relating to the comparable as an oz. of gold. to assert gold oftentimes fluctuates in value is to assert "i do no longer understand what money is."
