The Drudge Report has a link to this Dallas Morning News story:

Dallas-based food chain to accept Mexican pesos

Starting Monday, patrons of the Dallas-based Pizza Patron chain, which caters heavily to Latinos, will be able to purchase American pizzas with Mexican pesos.

Restaurant experts and economists said they knew of no other food chain with locations so far from the Mexican border offering such a service.

"We're trying to reach out to our core customer," Antonio Swad, president of Pizza Patron Inc., said Friday.

"We know they come back [from Mexico] and have pesos left over. We want to be a convenient place for them to spend their pesos." ...

David at My Point:

I am almost had it. Almost fed up enough to scream! Now comes a story of an American resturant located in an American City, now will accept Pesos from MEXICO, a foriegn country as currency to pay for goods in America.

Stop the freaking madness. Take back America! This is ridiculas as....illigels getting Social Security that I have to add too each pay period to give to illgels aliens of my country. Thsi is not Europe a shithole.

What Will We Get for Illegals Overrunning America? Pesos. I Mean Literally, Pesos!

Accepting Pesos at Pizzerias in DALLAS -- This Should NOT Be Legal!

... Pizza Patron is -- in my view -- owned by (to invoke radio talk-show host Michael Savagesque terminology) greedy, unpatriotic, subversive, pigs.

As the battle for securing the Nation's border with Mexico begins to heat up again in 2007, we need to look no further than Dallas, TX to see how far down a slippery slope we have fallen. A restaurant chain in the Lone Star state's shining star city has decided to accept Mexican pesos in payment. It makes one wonder; today Dallas, tomorrow New York?!


There's another country on our border. It's called Canada. It has a currency -- the Canadian dollar -- and plenty of U.S. businesses take it. In fact, some take it at par, one Canadian dollar as the equivalent of one U.S. dollar, even though it's not worth a full U.S. dollar.

Here's a Web site dedicated to helping Canadian golfers find New York State golf courses that take Canadian dollars at par. At this site, Canadians learn about Disney World travel packages that allow Canadians to use Canadian dollars at par. Many Vermont travel destinations take Canadian dollars at par. The Cedar Point amusement park takes Canadian money (at discount). This bar in Maine takes Canadian money at par (but only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Houghton College in Houghton, New York, takes Canadian money at par. The toll plazas at Niagara Falls bridges take Canadian money. I could go on and on.
