Wingnut wants to be paid in gold and silver coins

Montana state Rep. Jerry O’Neil (R) is spooked enough about the country’s fiscal picture to request that his legislative pay come in the form of gold and silver coins.

“Gaaargh, me Mateys,” O’Neil did not say, “pay me ‘n Doubloons,” as he hoisted his tankard o’ rum.

    And how to spend the gotten booty? I suppose the local WalMart could install coin-choppers to make change.

    Donate your pay to charity Jerr, no worries then.


  3. Suttree says:

    They always need something special don’t they. Well I would like to be paid with the tears of wingnuts but I guess I’ll keep taking cash and voting instead.


  4. Dimitrios says:

    Maybe Jerry would accept Confederate dollars.


  5. RWW says:

    He should be paid in Sue Lowdon chickens so he can barter them for healthcare and other necessities.


  6. Montana may have caught Teh Stupit from its western neighbor, Whitaho. At any rate, it’s one thing to have idiots in funny hats claiming that The Kenyan wants to destroy ‘Murica; it’s another thing entirely to have these dip-shits running our government.


  7. Maybe they can pay him in goods. Which republican senator suggested that people could barter for doctor visits by offering to pay the doctor in chickens?


  8. dk says:

    Do it. Pay him in ‘clad’ half-dollars (ca ’67) and large-mintmark nickels (ca ’40). Both have modest amounts of silver and can be easily purchased. His monthly salary would weigh about a ton. 🙂
