    Some folks in Congress want to replace Grant with Reagan. I don't believe this is going anywhere, but I just want to point out my opposition.

    We can put Reagan on a $200 bill, which we may need soon, with inflation set to increase with the huge deficits we are running.

    But Grant is a great hero, and should continue to be honored for his accomplishments.

    In the grand scheme of things, Grant was a MUCH better president than Reagan ever thought of being.

    No.........that Alzheimer's addled asshole does NOT deserve to be on the 50.

    I really don't care one way or the other. We change our currency all the time.

    Back when Nixon was president, Mad magazine printed a $3 in the magazine. folks tried spending them, which lead to an educational visit to the magazine by the Secret Service. The magazine argued that you can't counterfeit what doesn't exist.


    I like Reagan too. But he shouldn't supplant Grant.

    I was all for keeping Grant until BikerLoser chimed him with his characteristically stupid opinion.
    But I think we need to bring back the $500 bill and we can put Reagan there, on the big daddy note.

    Bernanke had stated back in 2008 that he was considering having the $500 and $1,000 bills reprinted again, but I don't know where it went from there.

    I would not be surprised if the banks started changing to $50s from $20s soon.

    I almost never use cash for anything. The ATM card is removing cash from the system.

    Why would they bother switching from one corrupt President to another?

    I thought we already had a 500 and a 1000. The 500 has Cleveland and the 1000 McKinley. Is that no longer the case?
