Mint the coin
Screw the nattering nabobs of conventional wisdom. The platinum coin is a valid idea well worthy of discussion:
It's not that there's no value in knowing what's possible or likely, it's that it isn't an argument against the value of the proposition. Most things which should happen don't. We talk about them anyway.So what if it's tied up in the courts for years? It's a legal solution. It would shut down the extortionists. Somebody has to do it. Clearly Boehner isn't up to the task.
