    I think Marcus makes a very valid point. Being against the Paycheck Fairness Act does not mean you are not also in favor of equal pay for women. There is a great deal more in the PFA than equal pay provisions.

    •  The federal corporation issues our currency. (1+ / 0-)

      Ipso facto, the federal corporation has a right to determine and define how that currency is used and by whom. Prisoners, for example, could be precluded from using any and, IMHO, should be. Regardless of my personal preference, logic argues that anyone who doesn't want to comply with the rules governing the use of our currency, should simply not use it. Households don't need to. Indeed, in most intimate relations, the introduction of currency, official certificates of obligation (IOUs), is more of a hindrance than a plus. The dollar provides a rationale for the public having a say in what's going on (think pay for intercourse).

      A reliable currency is one of our basic public utilities. But, it's a free country and, like the nuns in a cloister, we can choose not to use it. Indeed, that's one of the main reasons church properties aren't taxed.
