Video - Woz's $2 Bill Note Pads - The Engadget Show
Woz discusses his bit of creative currency manipulation, and swears that his custom $2 bills can get you "arrested, but not convicted, and that they have been approved by the Secret Service on 3 different occasions."
Anyone have any idea how this is possible and not considered counterfeiting? He claims he has been spending them for 20 years in his hometown of Los Gatos, California.
Fifty years ago, the four most valuable U.S. companies employed an average of 430,000 people with an average market cap of $180 billion.

Video - Obankster on jobs and the failed stimulus from yesterday's press conference
The stimulus was a resounding joke, supporting politically important states at the expense of everyone else, and expanding the deficit. $800 billion that accomplished nothing outside of burying your children under an even greater debt burden.
