I don’t know if there is any truth to the rumor but apparently the Treasury Department wants to put a woman on the $10 in place of one of our Founding Fathers so I thought I would take this moment to list all of the women who had as much effect as Alexander Hamilton did on the formation of the country and crafting it into the successful entity it once was (before we decided to become a failed social welfare state).
There you go – as comprehensive a list as you will ever see on that subject and it was provided to you free of charge.
Sure we just outsourced our government personnel database to a contractor in China and gave him root access but look — our tens have breasts now! If Stalin had only done that when he had the people who fell in disfavor wiped out of all official records and photos he would be hailed as a visionary by the three year olds we have running the US these days.
OK, maybe that isn’t fair, but at best we are ruled by a bunch of tweens who are obsessed with who is popular and what is cool while the country burns. I mean social media has fresh content everyday, why can’t our currency? Oh look, a white woman who wants to be black — and there are some kitten videos — and wouldn’t it be cool if we could put Beyonce’ on the ten dollar bill? And of course there were some on the far left who wanted to pick a woman who loathed blacks and promoted eugenics.
They pander because they have no solutions. All they know how to do is give things away — including our legacy, our liberties, our money and our hope for a better future. And the incurious bastards who are our journalists are fine with it because — YAY, TEAM!!
I think Harriet Tubman will ultimately be the pick and she is certainly worthy of being honored. In a very real sense she helped finish the work the Founders started and that we are so busy dismantling today. But I think it is an insult to her that she was picked because the pool was limited to women. You can’t insult someone and honor them at the same time. “Oh yeah, Tubman, she was pretty good for a girl.”
Either her accomplishments were worthy of her attaining the honor regardless of her sex or they weren’t. This business of dividing everyone up by race and sex is the very antithesis of what she fought for and what the Founders envisioned. In fact, we have wandered so far off the course of late that I think Hamilton might consider it more of an honor to be removed from the tissue we call our currency as to remain upon it.And to add further insult, the original plan was to put a woman on the $20 bill in place of a guy who gave us the Trail of Tears. But obviously, you can’t remove a Democrat and bring up the fact that the Democratic Party has been on the wrong side of the racial issue from the beginning and continues to be to this very day. Better to remove one of those old white guys whose existence is so inconvenient to the narrative and hope people forget about them.I also think it is a completely cynical distraction in a long line of cynical distractions (hey did you know Romney has a pet carrier and keeps stuff in binders) and is timed to coincide with Hillary’s run as a means of propping up the tired old “war on women” libel. I am sure the old biddy has dreams of being on the trillion dollar bill someday herself. And if she is elected there will certainly be a need for one. Hell, Obama owes us 9-10 of them since he basically doubled the debt as part of his vote buying efforts.
