Heh. Y'know, just thought of something: We're probably going to start calling twenties something, and it's going to be spun out of the media's hands as a subtle racist thing. Never mind an "Abe," a "George Washington," a "Jackson," a "Benny," nevermind all those exist. But we'll start calling the new shit twenties something like a "Tubby" or a "Dubba Tub" or something and everyone's going to freak out about how super-dee-duper raycis it is. T-dubs, there, that's black-centric enough that it might fly. T-dubs. Yo, Jack, slip me a T-dub. Slip me a tubby my man. Yeah.

Off to work! Gotta earn those precious tubbies!

That's a bit too subtle and not racist enough. I'm definitely calling them nigs if they happen.

How about a "twigger" it's a combination of "twenty" and "nigger". What do you think about that one?

Good for him. Shame it won't work, because The Fed is a private entity and not a branch of the government, with all the benefits of both and none of the drawbacks.

Except it's the US treasury that still pays for printing and design of bank notes. So if Congress can defund it, it won't happen.

With everything else going on in the government? This is a monumental waste of fucking time. This is why Trump is taken seriously because we the citizens are tired of this fucking shit.

Yeah... I was going to ask, if they're private, how can the government make specific legislation regarding their activities. I mean, they do that in practice to universities (see all the rape courts) but they have to disguise it by calling it a "withdrawal of funding," and no US government will ever defund the fed over some artwork.

Other than the false story of him inventing peanut butter, what did he invent? They only ever taught us peanut butter in school.

His active efforts as a agricultural professor in the south to try and improve conditions for farmers, especially black sharecroppers, were some of his actual achievements. Back then agricultural extension systems didn't even exist for many states, and such basic things like alternative crops and scientific agricultural advice was previously unavailable. Among those alternative crops were peanuts, of which he had a particular obsession for, and now in popular culture he's pretty much only known as the peanut guy.

Jacob Lew is a Jew.

Jew's names echo from the past, like the untold suffering of the six bazillion.

In another 100 years Tess Munster will be replacing Ben Franklin on the $100

Actually, I see it going on the $1,000 bill, as being the first "model" to reach 1,000lbs.

MLK would have also been a good choice if they wanted to get a black person on a bill, but I think they specifically wanted a woman, this is kind of limiting because the most influential woman of color in American history is probably Oprah Winfrey.

hope this amendment succeeds, I sure don't want to look at Tubman's face on the $20 bill, and Andrew Jackson was not only a great President, but a war hero as well

We need to elect some jujitsu masters in congress. What he SHOULD have done was insist they use a photo of Tubman holding a couple of flintlock pistols.
