While talking about foreign currency

(Apologies for thread drift)


But heres something to think about. The AMERO


I first heard about it via this You Tube clip

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sourc...E4OtZdwXAmeyfw



Anyone heard about it

Quote:
The North American Currency Union is a theorized economic and monetary union of the three principal countries of North America, namely Canada, the United States, and Mexico.[1] Implementation would probably involve the three countries giving up their current currency units (Canadian dollar, U.S. dollar, and Mexican pesos) and adopting a new one, created specifically for this purpose. The hypothetical currency for the union is most often referred to as the amero.[2][1] The concept is modeled on the common European Union currency (the euro), and it is argued to be a natural extension of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP). Conspiracy theorists contend that the governments of the United States, Canada, and Mexico are already taking steps to implement such a currency.[1] No current members of any country's government have officially stated a desire to implement a "North American Union."[3][4]
Found articles back in 2006 talking of US dollar collapse and the AMERO

Analysts: Dollar collapse<br> would result in 'amero'

U.S. Ships 800 Billion "AMEROS" to China; prepares to De-Monetize U.S. Dollar


The US Secretary of the Treasury has informed the China Development Bank that the US has shipped $800 Billion of a new currency called the Amero, which is to be based upon the merging of the economies of The United States, Mexico and Canada into what is termed as The North American Union.

The current American debt obligation to China, currently based on the US Dollar, is now estimated to be More..the staggering sum of $2.5 Trillion, and which this new Amero will be exchanged for $400 Billion of this debt as the current American currency is set to be devalued by 50 percent before the end of the year. <snipped>

Theres plenty of info on it getting around and that you tube clip added (some) credibility I thought.

What about the "claims" of U.S. Ships 800 Billion “AMEROS” to China; prepares to De-Monetize U.S. Dollar

Bold Claim that.


I liked the line in that snopes link about Hal Turner being a conservative radio host

Heres what Wikki has to say about Hal Turner

Hal Turner - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quote:
Harold "Hal" Turner is an American white nationalist and white supremacist from North Bergen, New Jersey. He ran his program, The Hal Turner Show, as a webcast from his home once a week and depended on donations by his listeners. He quit the show in July 2008 for good. In August his website also closed down though he retains a blog.
Turner has often made news for his extreme right-wing views. He promotes antisemitism (including rounding up and killing Jews)[1]) and opposes the existence of the state of Israel.[2] He also denies the Holocaust.[3] In 2005, Turner organized what he billed as a "rally against violence" after a white student was beaten by a black student at a high school. In 2006, he got in a fight with Jaime Vazquez, a former Jersey City deputy mayor, after Vazquez called him a racist coward. Turner has made numerous threats against political figures on his website and in other forums.
Sounds like a real sweetheart (not)

A very kind offer. I will be a fair way inland for XMas itself (Narembeen), but will be returning via Mandurah before I leave to return to the ice and snow.
