“Mankiller” On Money?

“WHOA HERE SHE COMES …”

|| By FITSNEWS ||  U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen doesn’t just want a woman on the $20 bill … she wants a “Mankiller.”

Because Washington, D.C. doesn’t have enough real problems to solve make worse, Shaheen has filed legislation aimed at putting more women on U.S. currency.  Shaheen is carrying water for Women on 20s, a group which wants to see a woman on the $20 bill prior to 2020.

This group has come up with four finalists for the honor – former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt, escaped slave turned abolitionist Harriet Tubman, civil rights figure Rosa Parks and Wilma Mankiller, former chief of the Cherokee Nation.

That’s right … “Mankiller.”

In addition to making tesicles shrink across the country, Mankiller’s selection would be ironic seeing as the current occupant of the $20 bill – former U.S. president Andrew Jackson – was known as “Sharp Knife” by the Cherokee for his brutal methods of removing indigenous peoples from their native lands.

We don’t really care who is or isn’t on U.S. currency … we’re far more concerned with efforts to manipulate it to the benefit of a wealthy few.

I think we should have Alfred E. Neuman on our currency myself.

Hmm….

FITS must be slipping…usually when he attacks someone for an idea – good or bad – he makes sure he denotes political party. And, since he only goes after Republicans, and anything they do is bad…it’s always a member of the GOP in FITS’ crosshairs…

I wonder why he did not mention Sheheen’s party affiliation???….

You people are Hilarious…and and so D*#n predictable…LMAO…you think no one is smart enough to see who, and what, you are….when it’s really pretty easy to see….

An easy joke to go for, about the testicles. But Wilma Mankiller was one of the greatest chiefs of any tribe in modern times. Indeed, it would be great irony for her to replace Andrew Jackson on the twenty.

That’s an interesting idea: $20 round steel spheroids that one can keep in a sock or small bag. … They would rattle nicely when they came out of the ATM, ready to smack upside the head of any thuggish type standing behind you. Got Satisfaction ….

You’ve obviously never lived near a reservation, if you had you’d be saying that the government should have finished the job.

I’ve lived in areas, or close to them, where there is extreme poverty. Including in major cities such as New York and Atlanta. Also high incidence of drug and alcohol abuse. Many of these areas were full of “white” people. (A phony identifier for a “race” if there ever was one.) Some of those “white people” were every bit as mean and vicious as anyone you’ll ever meet on or near a reservation. Who should have “finished the job” on them?

You just say shit calculated to piss people off, I think.

It’ll always be worth $20.

The question is, what will your $20 buy in 5, 10, or 15 years?

Right, those Susan B. Dollars are just clunkers in the bottom of the cookie jar now.

All inflation is caused by government, government prints the money and government can too easily print too much.

Out of that list, my vote goes for Wilma Mankiller. It would give the Native Americans some deserved positive publicity and recognition as well as the irony (poetic justice?) of her replacing Andrew Jachkson after the crimes he commited against the Cherokee Nation.

You just think it’s a good idea because then you could get the illiterate ones to trade the money with the Indian picture on it for a bottle of fire water.

A guy is sitting at a bar when he notices a beautiful woman
sitting at the other end. He asks her, “Hey, douchebag, can I buy you a drink?” She ignores him but tells the bartender that she’s insulted, angry and embarrassed by the guy’s remarks. The
bartender tells the guy that because of his insulting remark he’s kicked out of the bar. The bartender apologizes to the woman for the insult and offers her a drink on the house. “What can I get for you, ma’am?” “Thanks, I’ll have a vinegar and water.”

Mankiller

She’ll only come out at nights
The lean and hungry type
Nothing is new
I’ve seen her here before
Watching and waiting
Ooh, she’s sittin’ with you
But her eyes are on the door

So many have paid to see
What you think
You’re gettin’ for free
The woman is wild
A she-cat tamed
By the purr of a Jaguar
Money’s the matter
If you’re in it for love
You ain’t gonna get too far

(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Watch out goy
She’ll chew you up
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
She’s a maneater
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Watch out goy
She’ll chew you up
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
She’s a mankiller

I wouldn’t if I were you
I know what she can do
She’s deadly man
And she could really rip your world apart
Mind over matter
Ooh, the beauty is there
But a beast is in the heart

(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Watch out goy
She’ll chew you up
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
She’s a mankiller
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
Watch out goy
She’ll chew you up
(Oh-oh, here she comes)
She’s a mankiller

I think the Dems just don’t like having a paper reminder of the first, last, and only President to pay off the national debt and run a surplus (returning the surplus money to the states).

Lincoln had a war with the Indians too (the Dakota-US conflict, aka The Great Sioux Uprising), maybe we should replace him? While we are at it, lets get Washington, Jefferson, and Grant off currency as well since they were all slave holders.

All the presidents of that era have some baggage that people would be outraged about today. It seems that Jackson is an easy target for them because he’s from the South and, therefore, obviously the worst. Historians tend to forget that Jackson was revered by the North and the South almost on par with Washington (both sides even had stamps honoring him during the Civil War), it wasn’t until later that his accomplishments were forgotten and the only narrative in popular media seems to be his baggage.
