Shutdown Scrip?

I got to thinking about the current government shutdown and what would happen if  there were no debit cards, on-line banking, Paypal, or Bitcoin. I bet there would be some pretty interesting "Shutdown Scrip" cropping up around Washington, D.C. Maybe even some "Build-The-Wall Bucks"?

Build-The-Wall Buck = Peso, or so we're told.

Let's hope we get this budget settled long before build-the-wall bucks hit the register tills.  
 It's a good statement but my answer would be more political and misunderstood. Still I would like to share it but I know I would get in trouble my story coming to this country is very involved  all political. Someday I will write about it you wouldn't believe it. Thanks mike

It is terrible, my dad has been furloughed since the shutdown, money is really tight now. Although you bring up a good point. If this shutdown continues will the mint eventually shut down? If it does it will be interesting to see what happens and if hard-times tokens come back.

I just realized the mint does not run on government funding, so unless trump issues an executive order it will continue to run. Had this happen 25 years ago this would not have been the case.

Welfare will run out soon though, that may constitute some wall-scrip.

Sorry to hear about your Dad, Big Nub.  I retired from the federal government last February a little earlier than originally planned because, among other reasons, I was concerned about just the kind of thing that is happening now.  Hopefully they will settle this soon to everyone's satisfaction and, more importantly, they pay all the furloughed employees their missed pay.
