My Dear Friends,

I am informed that the new one dollar coins to be released have dropped "In God We Trust."

Maybe the mint should keep them if you believe in that trust.

Respectfully,
Jim

Patrick takes this period of ushering us in 2013 to remind you that since this speech was given, the dollar’s problems have multiplied by many orders of magnitude. For your sake listen to this and contemplate that.
