"The american dollar is loosing value by the minute, and trying to protect the ones in circulation against being further devalued isnt important? What is?"
Shoddy reasoning above. The value of the American dollar isn't lessened by defacing or even destroying individual bills. In fact, just the opposite argument could be made: every dollar bill destroyed is one less bill in circulation, making the remaining ones that much more valuable. It doesn't exactly work that way in reality, but in principle you have things reversed: destroying actual bills of currency is actually a selfless act whereby I lose a dollar of spendable currency to help increase the value of everyone else's currency by x trillionth of a percent. So help the economy, burn every "wheresgeorge" dollar you come across, out of respect. Kinda like a flag that's touched the ground.
