By now, you must have heard that there will be a new face on the twenty-dollar bill in a few years. Harriet Tubman was a great lady, don’t get me wrong. Fought for what she believed in and all. But the ire about this change is real… and it’s justified.
If It Ain’t Broke
No “regular” citizen is on any other paper money, and with the exception of the failed Susan B. Anthony and Sacagawea dollars, the only faces gracing U.S. money thus far have been past (and deceased) Presidents and founding fathers.
Deviating from that time-honored formula makes absolutely no sense. What’s next? Mickey Mouse on the $5 bill? A washing machine on the 50?! You can’t go around making sweeping changes like this, just ‘cause a bunch of fat, white suburban housewife sluts decided to create a non-issue and cause an uproar.
Turn Back Time
I sincerely hope the next President will reverse this asinine decision before it’s too late, and the American people have been forced to pay through the nose to change the dies, ink, and every other expense that goes along with such a ridiculous move. If things go as planned and ol’ HT does get on the money, I’ll never touch a $20 bill again. Enough of this horseshit!
