Funny the last time I bought gas I paid $3 (DOLLARS) and 38cents (FRACTION OF A DOLLAR) not $3.38FRN. Silver is still bought and sold on the open market in US dollars. Not US FRN account dollars or whatever you want to call them. You post was a waste of time, however I am not surprised that was the best response you could muster after 4 1/2 days (or should I call them US calander accounting units?).
And it is good to know you consider your candidate a baboon.
OK let's see. It seems as though you and I get caught up on semantics and definitions.
How about if I clarify where I am coming from?
The following is an example of one of your sentences, and the definitions of the terms I use when conversing on this subject.Funny the last time I bought gas I paid $3 (DOLLARS) and 38cents (FRACTION OF A DOLLAR) not $3.38FRN.
If you used the common green currency you used FRN's and their factional denomination "coins". FRN is clearly printed by our Treasury Dept. on the Feds Bills. Top line; Take a look.
The US Treasury and ONLY the US Treasury is allowed to "coin" the currency of the US of A, period, end of discussion.
Article 1, Section 8, Clauses 5 and 6.
If you really spent US Dollars, which I doubt, you made someones day and hosed yourself.
Since US Dollars have not been in circulation for so long I'm surprised you were not arrested for attempting to pass fake currency.
US Dollars look nothing like their currently kited FRN counterparts!

U.S. Federal Reserve Note= Federal Reserve Unit of Account Dollar
Note=DebtDr. Edwin Vieira, J.D. holds four degrees from Harvard and practices law before the United States Supreme Court. I highly recommend reading Dr. Vieira’s entire essay, What Is A Dollar?, which is quoted only in small part here:
Unfortunately, the present monetary statutes do not define the “dollar” in an intelligible fashion.
a. Federal Reserve Notes. Most people associate the noun “dollar” with the Federal Reserve Note (“FRN”) “dollar bill,” engraved with the portrait of President George Washington. This association is mistaken.
No statute defines – or ever has defined – the “one dollar” FRN as the ”dollar,” or even as a species of “dollar.” Moreover, the United States Code provides that FRNs “shall be redeemed in lawful money on demand at the Treasury Department of the United States * * * or at any Federal Reserve bank.”4 Thus, FRNs are not themselves “lawful money” – otherwise, they would not be “redeemable in lawful money.” And if FRNs are not even “lawful money,” it is inconceivable that they are somehow “dollars,” the very units in which all “United States money is expressed.”5http://www.fame.org/HTM/Vieira_Edwin_What_is_a_Dollar_EV-002.HTM
Unit of Account=A unit of account is a standard monetary unit of measurement of value/cost of goods, services, or assets.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unit_of_account
Or, you could say Value vs. Cost of goods.

Many private currencies use the word dollar as their unit of measurement.
