Right On Schedule! More Money-Monkey Business!

Judge Orders Treasury Department to Make Paper Money Recognizable to Blind People!

... Paranoia can be described as seeing threats and organized evil where it's not present. What do you do when the paranoia becomes real? The "Europeanization" of America marches on.

"Of the more than 180 countries that issue paper currency, only the United States prints bills that are identical in size and color in all their denominations," Robertson wrote in his ruling. "More than 100 of the other issuers vary their bills in size according to denomination, and every other issuer includes at least some features that help the visually impaired."
"Day Al-Mohamed, director of advocacy and government affairs at the American Council of the Blind, said that most of the world's currency is distinguished by color, size, perforations or tactile symbols. The Euro, for instance, can be determined by the length of the bill — the higher the denomination the longer the bill."

To paraphrase Tolkien, "One money to rule them all and in the darkness bind them." Smells like one world "order" to me!
