    Looks like they will also feature rotating pics on other (smaller bills). One silly local news gal was carrying on how Tubman risked her life to help slaves yada yada yada yada well didn't Old Hickory risk his fighting for our country?????

    "While Hamilton would remain on the $10, and Abraham Lincoln on the $5, images of women would be added to the back of both — in keeping with Mr. Lew’s intent “to bring to life” the national monuments depicted there.

    The picture of the Treasury building on the back of the $10 bill would be replaced with a depiction of a 1913 march in support of women’s right to vote that ended at the building, along with portraits of five suffrage leaders: Lucretia Mott, Sojourner Truth, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Alice Paul and Susan B. Anthony, who in more recent years was on an unpopular $1 coin until minting ceased.
    Here Are the New Faces on $5, $10 and $20 Bills

    The Treasury Department announced new designs for several bills that will incorporate women, including Harriet Tubman, Susan B. Anthony and Eleanor Roosevelt."

    There was talk of them choosing Helen Keller, I'd have been okay with her.

    Otherwise, I'm pretty much in the same camp as CPJ about not really caring.

    I've got a feeling that the bills in question were going to be changed anyway... Treasury Dept. seems to be changing bill designs often due to counterfeiters. So I'd imagine that the money spent on making new plates and whatnot would have been spent anyway.

    Put me down in the "don't care" column.

    Only time I get paper money is to pay for the public range or for communal pot type stuff for work (i.e. everyone chip in $XX.) They don't use credit card at the range. Rest of the time I got no cash.

    Who the hell uses paper money anymore? There was a time I wouldn't think of walking out of my house without a few hundred $$$s in my pocket. Now $20 in cash will last me a few weeks in my pocket, many days I'm walking around with less than $5 in cash on me. Unless they start showing dead presidents faces on the transactions on my Amex in Apple pay, I really could not give a rats anus who's on what bill anymore... :uhm:

    I like a little green in my wallet, I use debit cards/credit mostly and get my cash back at the grocery store/Walmart or at the banks ATM with no extra fee.

    Some places I don't like using any type card, especially gas stations at the pump (been compromised before) and if I don't have a Shell gas card I get from Publix $50 in gas fer $40 bucks with grocery purchase of $50, I'll pre-pay inside.

    Paying cash sometimes has its advantages. Especially if you don't want an electronic-paper trail of your purchase. You still can get a receipt from retailers.

    Besides, you ever decide to go on the run/disappear turn to being an Outlaw:guns::guns: , first things to lose are all cards/phones. :jester:

    Wambli,
    I'm thinking you're running in circles the rest of... don't. I can't think of a single place that I've been to that doesn't accept cash.

    I'd be all for it if they used the image depicted here (although it's been pointed out after the fact that this is Mary Fields, not HT)...

    Can you imagine the number of aneurysms suffered by the Moms Demand Action types and the Bloomberg sycophants if this was on the $20?

    My gun fund is CASH to hide it ... both from the wife and partly government (outside of the 4473 trail).

    Wambli,

    I have to agree with He of the multi-hued visage and inflamed scarlet backside. The ONLY time I run into a 'debit/credit only' issue is paying my water bill online. For making purchases, cash is king in the Mason household. I suppose that makes me a Luddite but, as a Luddite, I figure you put too much trust in the technology demon!:tooth:

    Keeping a cash stash has resulted in getting some pretty nice bargains at times, guns and otherwise! There's something about offering a few C-notes that tends to close a deal in a hurry!

    How about they put one of those hologram thingies on there that changes images depending on how you tilt the bill?

    I'm a little weary of using some of those "Plug-in" ATMs on wheels you see in gas stations and truck stops/ yep I've seen portable ones at Gun Shows too. Cash back at the grocery store/Walmart usually works for me or I use the one in front of my bank or go inside.

    I like having a little "Mad Money" around just in in case.................

    I don't know... maybe. The fact is that if managed properly paying by card has great advantages. At the end of the year when I dint out all my reports from American Express I just hand them over to my accountant who then makes sense of them for tax purposes with some input from me. If I worked in cash I'd miss out on many legit business tax deductions.

    This makes a lot of sense.

    I don't know why Jackson ever got the honor of getting his face on US currency. He reneged on his promise to the Cherokee nation after they helped him win the battle of New Orleans. He was about as sorry a person as we've ever had in the white house.

    Like Bil O said last night The Bern is in the top 5% income bracket in the US (200+ thousand ?? reported annual income) and must have a good tax accountant because he pays less than 14% after campaigning to make sure everyone pays their "Fair Share".

    I think ita a good idea.

    Replace a Democrat with a evangelical, gun toting Republican. I dont see a downside.
