Will this really do women any good?
Bills have pictures of presidents and/or founding fathers of our country. The proposed new $20 bill will have a portrait of Harriet Tubman. She will not only be the token woman she will also be the token black.
Should they put a picture of Michelle Obama there instead? at least we will know who she is?
Look they call it history, they don't call it herstory. Women have not been allowed to get the highest ranking jobs. It is not their fault that they have not been as important in American history as men. This $20 will make a visual statement which is not unlike " Hariette Tubaman ,whoever she was, did something more historic than any other woman."

Tubman shouldn't be on the $20, but then Jackson shouldn't be on it either. I guess I can't complain too much. I would have liked to see Frederick Douglass or Cesar Chavez though. Eisenhower would have been a good pick too.

Well Jackson was a war hero and President, he evicted the Cherokee from Georgia. so maybe they should put a picture of president Woodrow Wilson's wife there. Wilson had a stroke shortly before his term was to expire and his wife acted as the president until inaugaration day.
look we put a woman on both of the dollar coins, isn't that enough?

So we can conclude that putting a woman on a $20 BILL is a dumb idea.
They tried a woman on both of the $1 coins, it didn't work.
People who are opposed to total separation of church and state should ask to have the blessed virgin Mary be the woman. The liberals could not oppose this, because they would have to shut up or appear to be anti-woman.

The $1 coins didn't work because their were women on them, lol, they didn't work because they were never meant to replace $1 bills, which is why the bills weren't phased out.

I agree that Harriet Tubman is a weird choice. Eleanor Roosevelt is probably the most iconic historical woman in American politics, and would be far better suited.
"Whatever else is evil, the pride of a good mother in the beauty of her daughter is good. It is one of those adamantine tendernesses which are the touchstones of every age and race. If other things are against it, other things must go down. If landlords and laws and sciences are against it, landlords and laws and sciences must go down. With the red hair of one she-urchin in the gutter I will set fire to all modern civilization."

Uh no.
I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations.
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection,
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.
