The E-Sylum:  Volume 10, Number 37, September 16, 2007, Article 12

MORE ON DANIEL CARR'S AMERO COINS

As we noted in last week's E-Sylum (September 10), talk show host
Hal Turner has been misrepresenting Daniel Carr's Amero coin patterns.
Jeff Starck of Coin World was already on the trail of this story, which
was published in the Coin World issue of the same date.  I read the
article when I returned from London.

Starck noted that Hal Turner is branded an Anti-semite/racist/bigot by
the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center, which
called him 'the host of hate.'    Starck contacted Daniel Carr and
learned that he tried to contact Turner to correct the record but his
e-mails were ignored (and he couldn't get through via the telephone
number listed).

 CONSPIRACY THEORISTS HOME IN ON AMERO FANTASY COINS

The Dallas Morning News picked up on this too and presented the
truth in a September 11 article:

"There's a phony story going around about a mythical currency
that's supposed to replace the dollar called the 'amero.'

"New Jersey blogger Hal Turner says a friend in the U.S. Treasury
smuggled him a 20-amero coin made at the U.S. Mint in Denver 
evidence, he writes, of a conspiracy to unite the United States,
Canada and Mexico in a North American Union.

"Well, you can get as many of these 20-amero coins as you want for
$9 apiece  which would be a steal if it were a real currency.
Just check with Daniel Carr at www.dc-coin.com."

"Mr. Carr said he decided to make amero coins to be provocative
and get people thinking about the issue.

"He said he was not asked by the U.S. Mint to design the coin
(and Mint spokesman Greg Hernandez agrees).

"Meanwhile, Mr. Turner stands by his story and says he has now
heard from an anonymous ATM maker that the government is starting
to provide specifications for amero paper bills.

"What will this guy sell next? Mexican shares in the Brooklyn Bridge?"
