You are right. I just checked too. No where to be found. Perhaps a J Patterson conspiracy.

Man, people not knowing who Michael Ironside is makes me feel old, which I really shouldn't be feeling at 34.

I learned that if you're going to extort a mafioso kingpin for finances for your personal international incident misadventure you should: Kidnap him, .... knock him out?... tie him to a chair and suspend him off the edge of the building, lay out your extortion deal, and then leave him hanging off the building with no obvious means of escape while your contact information for your Swiss Bank Account (TM!) remains precariously perched on a ledge on a flimsy piece of paper.  I also learned said mafioso king pins are actually pretty easy to capture and get information out of.

And that he knows his brother-in-law is screwing him. At least, he thought he was. HE THOUGHT HE WAS!!!

I learned that if a young woman walks up to construction workers on the Brooklyn Bridge they won't call the man she's looking for to come down, or say he's busy and needs to wait or anything like that.  Nope, they'll just send her up the cable to talk to him herself.

What I didn't learn was what the deal was with the US reprinting their money in Red White and Blue, what was up with that?

I think it was just political satire about how meaningless politicians are.

I thought the suggestion might have been they were counterfeiting or something.

Nah, I'm with Darth. It was a commentary on how politicians have the tendency to concern themselves with meaningless domestic matters (especially over things like how Americans feel about their patriotism and money) when there's real world problems out there that are effect lives, livelihoods and, well, stuff that matters.

It's also odd. If not mistaken the US Mint and Federal Reserve have more to do with the printing of money, what it looks like, and such more than the Federal Government and the President himself do.
