“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.
