Alexander Hamilton To Be Removed from U.S. $10 Bill for “Some Woman”


Exactly who, they have not decided yet, but ‘the powers that be’ say it HAS to be a woman.

Will it be Susan B. Anthony or Harriet Tubman? Eleanor Roosevelt or Rosa Parks? Or another important woman from American history?

These will be among the names the nation ponders after the Obama administration’s announcement late Wednesday that a woman will be featured on the $10 bill, the first time in well over a century that a female portrait will grace the United States’ paper money.

The redesigned bill will be unveiled in 2020 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the right of women to vote. The Treasury Department is launching a massive public campaign to solicit suggestions through social media and town halls for what the bill should look like and who should be on it. The only requirements for candidacy are that the woman be deceased and embody the theme of the bill’s new look: “Democracy.”

“America’s currency makes a statement about who we are and what we stand for as a nation,” said Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, who has the authority to make the decision.

The debate over who should be the face of the new $10 bill could become part of a wider conversation about the social and economic progress of women. Selecting just one person for such a symbolic role may involve trade-offs, forcing officials to decide which major milestone in American history to highlight.

As it proceeds, the Treasury Department could also face backlash over its decision to kick off the current face of the $10 bill, Alexander Hamilton, the country’s first secretary of the treasury, who advocated for a national currency. As discussion over placing a woman to appear on U.S. currency began to heat up this year, some had suggested replacing Andrew Jackson, the controversial seventh president, who is featured on the $20 bill.

    Poor Alexander Hamilton. Shot dead in a duel, and now tossed in the trashcan of history for the sake of Political Correctness.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      The Presidential Candidate who says this is madness wins the election.

  • Tom Forsythe

    Phyllis Schlafly? Or maybe the first woman president: Jimmy Carter.

  • andycanuck

    Rachel Dolezal!

  • El Martyachi

    In fairness, not all women are stupid horrible cunts wholeheartedly engaging in the destruction of civilization.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      No, not all.

      • El Martyachi

        … does this make me a feminist?

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          No, just a cunt. 😉

      I say most aren’t.

      Sadly it’s usually the shrill bitchy harpies that get all of the press.

  • DVult

    How about Lindsay Lohan for the $10 bill?

    • G

      She’s not worth that much. Bring back the Half Penny then maybe.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        The Hapeney is too good for her.

  • Canadian

    How about that guy Jenner who is now that gal Jenner?

    • pdxnag

      caitlyn jenner

      • Canadian

        Yeah, that.

  • Why don’t these people just be honest? Liberals couldn’t give a crap which woman (even Margaret Sanger if they wished) was on a dollar bill. They just want to push their stupid ideas on people so they can get back at Dad.

    Put Barbara Bush on that bill and see what happens. They wanted a woman, didn’t they?

  • Norman_In_New_York

    I favor Martha Raye, who set aside her Hollywood career to serve as an army nurse in three wars.

  • Brett_McS

    Surely it has to be two-spirit “throws like a girl”?

      I ain’t going to touch that cereal.
      What a waste of fruit loops and milk.

      • Canadian

        She`s transracializing.
        Dolezal did it with cocoa-puffs.

  • Dana Garcia

    If the government wants to do something positive for women, it could end the immigration of misogynous cultures, particularly Muslims.

    That policy would be good for everyone else also. Nobody like Muslims, except a handful of Democrats.

    • Tom Forsythe

      That leaves Britain, Canada, and Australia.

    • El Martyachi

      Sorry, but misogyny is fast going from bug to feature.

  • DVult

    Is there some symbolism to the fact that that is a $20 bill above? And why is that football player on it?

  • Uncle_Waspy
  • Clausewitz

    Why not. I read somewhere that the remake of Ghostbusters will include only female Ghostbusters with a guy playing the Annie Potts role. Yeah I really want to see that piece of crap.

    Don’t worry it will end up being Michelle Obama,she’s the black 1st trany in the white house so they have to use her/him/it…

  • Xavier

    Why don’t they put Caitlyn on a $3?

    • Raymond Cameron

      Or Hillary?

      • David Murrell

        I was going to post your joke, but you beat me to it…

  • Hard Little Machine

    By law it has to be a dead person, so Hillary.

  • Liberal Progressive

    It should be someone who has done more for women than anybody else in US history so that would be Oprah Winfrey!

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      You know, I’d commission a special $3.00 bill just for her.

      • JoKeR

        Sorry, that one is reserved for Caitlyn!

  • just a thought

    Regardless of who it ends up being, they’re sure to put Obozo on it with her. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if…
    “You know, while we’re changing the picture, we might as well put the president on it, as well.”
    The change may well be just an excuse to do exactly that. Then we’d be stuck with it.

    Also, whenever someone arbitrarily alters long established tradition, he has no respect whatever for that tradition.
