    I love the MT tea party member who "wants to be paid in gold or silver coins", you know something with "intrinsic value".  He apparrently is too stupid to realize that essentially "value" is a social construction...Things only have "value" because we as a society say that they do...That includes U.S. Treasury Notes (i.e., dollar bills) as well as gold and silver coins.  Its like the "wealthy" who belive that their success exists in some abosolute sense (and, therefore, they owe nothing to the systems/society that assisted in creating the mechanisms for that wealth to occur).
