You know what we should do? Put all of the union generals on the dollar notes instead.

Today Mnuchin announced that Harriet Tubman was no going to even be a possibility under a Trump presidency; the soonest would be 2028.

Harriet Tubman on Twenty Dollar Bill Delayed to 2028 At Least-00dc-tubman1-threebytwosmallat2x.jpg

What's more interesting is that the above example of how the bill was going to look, is far different from the photo originally proposed.

While common for people of that era to not smile while having their photos taken, they didn't all have RBR.

So it seems they've added a smile to Ms Tubman, which (to me) removes her from the "hedgehog" category.

What happens when the woke crowd find out she gasp.......heated and cooked with wood thereby contributing to air pollution and climate change? Will there be a movement of #woodnot good to hit twitter lol.

Until our society can accept that not every part of a person's life is being celebrated but rather an accomplishment of part of that life is celebrated, portraits on currency should be our National Parks. But I am sure the media will find one person who feels oppressed by trees or rock's and run the story incessantly.

Poor dear must not be able to read. A penny is not a paper note.

So you somehow think that coins aren't legal tender and have no significance? Or what?
