    I'm not sure what I think. When they new bill comes out, somebody send me a bunch of both the new and old ones and I'll examine them closely and let you know.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Jackson is still going to be on the back. Kick him off entirely!

    So much hate for Jackson. It's not like he's the only president on our money that owned slaves or committed atrocities against ethnic groups.
    Trust is knowing someone or something well enough to have a good idea of their motivations and character, for good or for ill. People often say trust when they mean faith.

    Re: Go Harriet Tubman!

    Nope, he's not, but he didn't like paper money and he directly violated a Supreme Court ruling for gold. The only thing Jackson believed in was Jackson. Unlike Jefferson (I'll use TJ because I like his house) he had few redeeming qualities and almost no acknowledgement of his failings and hypocrisy. Jackson is one of the worst presidents ever.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Re: Go Harriet Tubman!

    A) it's about time a female showed up on cash

    B) it's about time ant-slavery heroes were shown public respect

    C) if a face on a bill that a regular person is going to touch has to be replaced to acomplish A and B, that face should be Jackson

    This summary constitutes my total feelings in this evolving debate.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    You mean in addition to Susan B. Anthony, Sacajawea, and Lincoln. No respect for coins these days.

    I read some pretty extreme reactions to this. A lot of white people complain about the destruction of their history.

    I hope they send their twenties to me in protest.

    Seems that you are engaging in selective reading. Pointless to respond to that form of thinking.

    I'm just pointing out how none of the reasons for getting rid of Jackson and/or bringing in Tubman are without precedent.
