The U.S. Quarter Shortage

There are many things that Congress does or does not do that anger most of us Americans regardless of our political affiliation.

Failure to pay us the long-promised stimulus checks is but one of those angered emotions at a time many Americans are suffering financially.

President Trump offered to sign a standalone stimulus check to speed the delivery to all Americans qualifying for the $1,200 stimulus and additional money for dependents weeks ago.

No one in Congress seemed to be motivated to do just that, create a standalone stimulus check bill that would deliver many hurting Americans relief.

Instead political bickering and strongarming continued from both sides and everywhere in the middle. The media added fuel to the flames of blame while accusing opposition sides and blaming whoever is in their path of political rejection.

Nothing has been accomplished and WE THE PEOPLE have continued to suffer from our poorly performing elected officials.

The U.S. quarter shortage seems to hold the same fate as the stimulus check, no resolution to a pressing and growing problem and concern across America.

The stores are out of quarters and refuse to give up their merger supply. Even to their most loyal customers. The banks will not provide quarters for customer use in rolls. The banks and stores blame the armored car business. The armored car business is but the messenger, the carrier, not the producer of U.S. coins. The U.S. Mint is.

The Covid-19 virus is the fundamental basic blame for the quarter shortages. Likewise, as it is with every dysfunctional, mismanaged company in the world that uses Covid-19 virus for blaming its underperforming business and inability to manage, the U.S. Mint fails to perform with skilled management.  

A good manager will improvise and find ways to adjust to any change, any threat to its business. A great manager will improve on what good managers do and create systems that bring progress for their company no matter what the threat or negative force is.

Unfortunately, when the government—politicians and bureaucratic powers—with zero risks or investment in the business, and most often no business experience, force business to close, to operate under restricted rules, to reduce their normal business hours or to interfere in any way, even the best business managers cannot successfully lead or succeed.

The U.S. Mint is a government operation, not a private business.

David J. Ryder is the current director of the U.S. Mint.

Ryder is a holdover from the days of George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton. He is not someone who should be in the Trump administration although Trump nominated Ryder in 2017 and he was confirmed in March of 2018.

Ryder needs to be replaced, removed entirely from the U.S. Mint and from the United States Department of Treasury and the United States Department of Commerce.

To allow a coin shortage for any reason is valid proof of David J. Ryder’s inability to manage under adverse conditions.

Ryder may very well be tied to Deep State operatives due to his linage and history.

George H. W. Bush and his family, including George W. Bush and Jeb Bush, have made it known publicly they were anti-Trump disgruntled politicians. They added fuel to and led the Never-Trump movement. Anyone connected to the Bush dynasty should never be in the Trump administration as it is not in the best interest of Americans, no matter what political affiliation that American has. We all suffer the blows from failed government.

The poor suffer the worst. They suffer from the U.S. Mint quarter shortage and they suffer from the failure of government to deliver their second stimulus check so they can deal with the hardship they endure.

No one wants to address the problem other people created.

Certainly, the powers in Congress, inept and incapable of even tying their own shoes cannot solve such an easy problem to solve.

We the American People, should call upon our individual Congressional representatives, in Congress, both in the House and the Senate and demand they get off their lazy butts and stop acting like schoolyard bullies and do their job. The job they were sent to Washington for, to represent their constituents, the American people of their district.

A quarter shortage is caused by none other than the U.S. Government, and that does not blame any political party but holds BOTH parties responsible.

People need their quarters to do laundry, paying cash due to lack of credit, paying parking meters, to purchase items from vending machines, to pay bus fare and other necessities.

Congress do your job or get the hell out of Washington and go to some freak show where you would perform best. You certainly are not fit for Congressional representation of your constituency. Collectively, you are non-performers and that does not work for America.

Stop the nonsense. Get the $1,200 stimulus checks in the mail and the U.S. quarters readily available to anyone who needs them.
