Solution for the government shutdown

Earlier this month our "so called" elected federal government shut down. This shutdown has affected a wide variety of different issues across this vast country of ours. The shutdown of our federal government has forced people to postpone their vacations to our nation's National Parks, which are now currently closed. The shutdown has affected many different federal jobs, which has sadly resulted in lay offs. The list from the shutdown also includes Social Security, Military burials, and it goes on and on just like the little Energizer bunny rabbit does in the commercials. (I really do like that expression from that battery commercial.)

It's really a little bit unclear just how much longer this sad episode might continue and go on in this country. However there's one thing out there for certain and that is that money is the basic reason behind all of this mess as it is also responsible for a lot of the evil in this world. If the person who invented these little green pieces of paper, I'm talking about paper money here, knew all of the trouble that they would create one day down the road and throughout time, then maybe they would have created something else instead. However that's not the case here, so we must come up with a different and alternative solution other than little green pieces of paper that everyone calls money.

So after giving this federal government shutdown some thought, maybe the solution to this problem is as simple as changing the color of money, and mixing up the colors some. Also a change in the theme on our paper money might not be all that bad of an idea either.

So for a change this big you have to look at what's hot in this world, and what's not. Right now at this moment in time the federal government along with it's politicians aren't exactly hitting on all eight cylinders, and aren't on the top of everyone's hot list. However on the other hand online video games like "Candy Crush" and "Angry Birds" are certainly on a lot of peoples list of hot things. So let's all journey in that direction.

Now Candy Crush certainly ranks up there in popularity today, however it would be much better to replace a former U.S. president with another life form of some sort on money. Candy Crush is full of plenty of colorful tasty candy types, however the criteria of a life form of some sort isn't met here.

So next walks in the cast of characters from the very popular online video game "Angry Birds". There certainly are more than enough of these characters to fill up all of the different denominations of money, and add plenty of color as well. The coins pictured here are Rovio's creation, but the prototype of the paper money is solely out of the vaults of my mind. The postage stamp is the next target for Angry Birds. Wouldn't it be great if life was only this easy. Like the Food Lion says, that's my two cents on this government shutdown business. Which brings up another interesting thought, and that is if the government is shut down then why are they still taking taxes out of my weekly paycheck?

Do you know that in Argentina, people created their own currency in the nineties. I think the bank closed and people couldn't access their money... but they still have to live and they found another solution! But it was not the angry bird money ;-)

Angry Birds currency would be the perfect replacement, THS, especially since our current money is becoming more worthless by the minute. Trust me!

No I wasn't aware kidscrafts that the people in Argentina created their own money. Thanks for the quick history lesson. And drbj, colorful Angry Bird money might not be worth more, but the bills would certainly be more colorful and eyecatching. And by the way Mystery Beer Question #45 has been waiting on you drbj.

I think you should talk to the American eagle first. He may look at these guys like low-life immigrants and not want them in the neighborhood. Not only that. Michelle Obama would not approve of the candy and would want it replaced with a tossed salad. How 'bout the characters from Futurama?
