O no they din’t!!!!!!!!!!!
The motherland, Great
Grandma Britain, has screwed us all again.
Parliament passed the Currency Act to restrict the British colonies from circulating paper money, which they had started distributing as an “IOU” to pay for military expenses during the French and Indian Wars. Since more paper money has been issued than what has been taxed, the value of the money depreciated compared to the British pound.
So, the paper money is now only good for paying taxes, but NOT for buying personal things.
Guess we can finally make that papier-mâché mask of Bach’s face that we always wanted…
