Post subject:  Tubman and the $20 Bill... debate

I don't normally find myself in agreement with either Donald Trump or Ben Carson on anything, but I find the whole idea of changing who's on which currency to be a bit whackadoodles. I understand that a main reason was because of an increased focus on preventing counterfeiting, but there are so many other ways to go about doing that.

I mean we live in an increasingly paper-moneyless world anyway but I guess there's still a need for it. I would be in favor of different colors for different currencies, color patterns that are difficult to precisely duplicate. Or rotate the existing faces every year to make counterfeiting harder.

I was kinda surprised when I heard about it. Seems a bit unnecessary. But, I can't say that I really mind it either. Entire thing seems kinda trivial to me.

Obama has stated he wants more diversity on US currency - hence the change. Andrew Jackson owned slaves as well so those campaigning for a move for the past few years wanted him replaced. Someone it then turned to replacing Hamilton on the $10 but now we're back to the $20. The whole thing seems unnecessary to me given all the other issues this country has.

George Washington and Thomas Jefferson owned slaves, too. Why aren't they being removed??

Lame reasoning.

Time for the bad joke:

Is the Harriet Tubman $20 only worth $14?
