To keep President Obama in office or to send him packing for a poor job performance might be the question leading up to the Nov. 6 election, but what about all those $100 bills that were stolen this week from the Federal Reserve?
Doesn't anybody care about that? Like someone in the government, by any chance? Or is it like that Robert Palmer song: The lights are on, but no one is home?
Philly.com says the FBI cares about it and that they are looking at the airport employees and the courier used to transport one million dollars of newly designed $100 bills during a Dallas commercial flight to Philadelphia and then on to New Jersey, where they were first missed.
The $100 bill thieves are in for a bad surprise, because they can't use the money without attracting a lot of suspicion, since the different-looking bills aren't even going into circulation officially until 2013. So the crooks have basically risked their freedom for money they can't even spend right now.
How's that for proving some criminals are just plain stupid and destined to be losers?
Only $20,000 was alleged to be stolen of the one million shipment, so the person who committed the crime obviously didn't think they could get away with that much money undetectedÂ—or didn't have enough advance notice of the shipment and its contents.
But how did security of America's money become so lax that a public airline employee had access to itÂ—and the FBI hasn't caught them yet? Doesn't the White House have any concerns about it at all? They haven't spoken up about it in public if they do.
Maybe it is time to replace the current administration? They don't seem to be protecting U.S. Ambassadors abroad any better than the Federal Reserve money at home. And they should care about $20,000 taxpayer dollars as much as they do all the other trillions of dollars made and spent.
Anyone with any information on the $100 bill theft should contact the FBI at 215-418-4000.
