My question is, if they put a woman on the $10, will it only be worth $7.80? ;)

I'm glad they spared Jackson and are getting rid of Hamilton. Hamilton and his ideological spawns are part of the problem in America.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

Jackson killed a bunch of people quickly and relatively humanely. Hamilton created a system by which wealth disparity would ensure the slow and agonizing early deaths of millions stuck in poverty.

Paul Robeson. The greatest American yet gets far too little recognition.

i don't like the lack of 1, the weird sizing, and the art could be differently done but the themes are good

argriculture, commerce, uh uh uh oceans, space, nature


those are awesome. I never got why we put people on money...seems a bit monarchist for my taste. We should put value, ideals, accomplishments on them as they better reflect what makes our nation unique and great than a bunch of guys from the 1700's.
Pun intended for the plebes on here who don't get a joke
