COURT RULES OUR MONEY DISCRIMINATES AGAINST THE BLIND 05/21/2008


The AP reports: "Close your eyes, reach into your wallet and try to distinguish between a $1 bill and a $5 bill. Impossible? It's also discriminatory against the blind, a federal appeals court says.

"Since all paper money feels pretty much the same, the government is denying blind people meaningful access to the currency, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled Tuesday. The decision could force the Treasury Department to make bills of different sizes or print them with raised markings or other distinguishing features. The American Council of the Blind sued for such changes, but the government has been fighting the case for about six years."

After all these years, why could money be changed so radically? It is because people use to deal honest and sympathetically with the blind. But stealing, which is forbidden in the disposed "Ten Commandments," is now so prevalent the blind are crying for protection.

A change in our morals, not in our money is what America needs.
