BREAKING NEWS: Farewell To A Pro-Slavery, Genocidal Monster…

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew Lew announces that  Andrew Jackson will be removed in favor of a female representing the struggle for racial equality.

Hamilton will remain on a redesigned $10 bill. and  a mural-style depiction of the women’s suffrage movement — including images of leaders such as Susan B. Anthony — will be featured on the back of the bill.

This  happened only after millions protested the removal of Hamilton while Andrew Jackson, a man honored as a slaver and murderer of indigenous Americans, remained on the $20.

“When we started this conversation not quite a year ago, it wasn’t clear to me that millions of Americans were going to weigh in with their ideas.  We’re not just talking about one bill. We’re talking about the $5, the $10, and the $20. We’re not just talking about one picture on one bill. We’re talking about using the front and the back of the bill to tell an exciting set of stories.”

In a letter to Time magazine,  the  group Women on 20s objected to being relegated to the Jacksonback of the bill.  “It will take a microscope to see who those individuals are, and we’ll be left with another decade or more of woefully inadequate representation of women and their worth.  Nobody looks at the back of the bill, and that’s not likely to change.  A vignette without a woman’s portrait on the front of the bill (even if she must share with Hamilton) will be seen as a token gesture and an affront to Americans of all ages who are expecting you to reveal your choice of a singular woman based on their input. As a friend of ours put it, relegating women to the back of the bill is akin to sending them to the back of the bus. The Rosa Parks analogies are inevitable.”

As for the twenty, that is going to take 15 years!


“The soonest that a new $20 note will be issued is 2030,” a source said, citing a lengthy process convened by the Advanced Counterfeit Deterrence steering committee, which includes representatives from the U.S. Secret Service, the Treasury, and the Federal Reserve. That process isn’t likely to be sped up by the Federal Reserve, which issues the currency, given the work that goes into designing secure technology to thwart counterfeiters.

“The blue security ribbon on the $100 note took over 15 years to develop,” the source said. “This level of technology is why our counterfeiting remains at less than .01% of currency in circulation. We should not expedite the issuance of any currency for political purposes.”


The $5 bill will retain Abraham Lincoln on the front, with plans to change the back to include a mural of prominent activities that have taken place at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington.

    Not really. Jackson’s still on the twenty. All they did was move him to the back side.
