Take THAT, Andy

Harriet Tubman $20 banknote
The US Treasury Department announced that Harriet Tubman, a gun-toting African-American Republican woman (who found it necessary to arm herself to remain free) would replace President Andrew Jackson on the front/face of the $20.00 banknote.

As I understand it, President Jackson, will be moved to the reverse of the banknote. President Jackson was the last US President to balance the national debt and bring it to zero. Make of that what you will. 
Walking Liberty half dollar - a woman, potentially white
The news broadcast mentioned that women had never appeared on US money before. Not true.

Sacagawea dollar coin
There were standing and walking Liberty coins, a coin dedicated to an Indian woman who carried her papoose on her back to the Pacific Ocean. The vulture on the back of the coin allegedly followed her on her journey, hoping that she'd trip and fall...,and Susan B. Anthony, a suffragette.  

Susan B. Anthony dollar coin
Margaret Sanger was in the running to have her face on US Currency but her position in favor of sterilizing African American women turned off some in the present administration. Still, she was the first woman to make a solid case for birth control by abortion (for selected people), a popular cause for secular progressives now in control of the executive branch of government in the US. In any event, she didn't make the cut. If she was alive today, she wouldn't be the least bit happy that she was beat out by an old negro slave.

I thought that Oprah Winfrey would be on a US banknote before a slave, who frankly, accomplished little. Winfrey, for what it's worth, created a media empire and rose to be one of the wealthiest women in America. That a black woman, born into poverty can do that doesn't go with the progressive narrative of racism and social injustice. Some contend that Winfrey isn't dead and you must be dead to have your face on a US coin or banknote (somebody call Hillary, she can fix that).

The rumor that Barack's ugly mug would be pictured on a $3 banknote is just conservative propaganda. Disregard it. He's going on a food stamp, not a banknote.

I think that his face should appear on all ObamaPhones as well, but that's just me.

  1. Obie knows ow to pick'em. She was a soldier (scout), fought for what was right, and was Republican. But the most important things is... she was black.

    1. If they wanted to put a black person on a banknote for shits and giggles, they could have made a $30 bill or something for Harriet. It would have made more sense.

  2. You clearly need a Queen. Don't worry, Caitlyn Jenner will make it there soon! #MakeAmericaGreatAgain ;)

    1. Bruce Jenner for Queen? It makes some sense in a strange and twisted way.

  3. I think the news broadcast was paying fast and loose with the facts as they are wont to do. No woman has ever appeared on US paper money bill.

    The only paper Obama should appear on belongs in the bathroom and you must hang the roll so that the jug-eared head is visible.

    1. You can buy Obama and Hillary toilet paper here: https://patriotdepot.com/obama-hillary-toilet-paper-pack

      But don't blame me if using it causes a rash...

    1. I don't like the idea of her replacing Thomas Jefferson on the $2 banknote. Jefferson owned slaves, but he also "loved" slaves from all reports.

    2. I... choke, cough, agree with you...
      I should have said two dollar coin.

  5. Now, finally, our currency will be worth, er, something.

    1. A Federal Reserve Note is a promise from the Federal Reserve. It's sort of like a promise from Barack - and he makes lots of those.

  6. Bet what staffers came up with that and released the news are now receiving some intense "counselling".

    1. I like the idea of an armed and angry black woman (who was a criminal while she lived) is emblematic of the racial tensions exacerbated by Barack.

  7. There's a joke going around about the 18th dollar bill...

  8. I liked it better when we put people we knew on our currency.

    1. I saw Harriet Tubman down on 6th Street today between the liquor store and the rescue mission. She was pushing a shopping cart.
