      Image on a bill can't be broke. However we can change them because the is no fundamental reason not to do so periodically. The current ones were not the original images that we started the nation with. So how did they get there? Someone wanted a new one. No reason not to.
      “The time has come,” the Walrus said,
      “To talk of many things:
      Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
      Of cabbages—and kings—
      And why the sea is boiling hot—
      And whether pigs have wings.”
      ― Lewis Carroll

        Never heard of it and wonder how many votes were cast.

        BTW, think you mean "won" not "one". Personal comment deleted by ACG Staff.

          When they do this, the government will then presumably move to put an Irish person on another bill, and a Russian, A Czech, a German, a Pole, etc. on all subsequent bills. We must honor ALL Americans equally.

          Might be a better idea to put national monuments, landmarks or some other neutral subject on them. How about American Nobel Prize recipients?

              You're a very disturbed person. You should get help right away.

                  The list is lengthy but distinguished.

                    My worst jump story:
                    My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
                    As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
                    No lie.

So let's finally say good-bye to Andy Jackson already.

                        Somehow, " I see your Hamilton and raise you a Tubman. " just doesn't sound right.

                          Still, the schwartzer didn't try to eradicate the bank as an institution. Tubman 1, Jackson 0.

                              If any African American belong on a dollar bill it's George Jefferson. The man came from poverty to build a dry cleaning business in new York City. He is a true inspiration to us all.
