Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last?
After firing the air traffic controller, they rename an airport after him.
After ballooning the national deficit and debt, they want to put him on our currency.
Next thing you know, when AIDS is cured, they'll name the drug that does it after him.
I'm going to be sick to my stomach.
Figures one of the jokers behind it would be Mitch McConnell, the fish-lipped senator who tried so hard to get Bill Clinton impeached.
I agree completely with FatTony. Maybe they could introduce a million dollar bill, something almost nobody would be able to use, and put Reagan on that.
Or, if you're in a more impish and ironic frame of mind, put Reagan's picture on food stamp coupons.
(BTW, a Marvel No-Prize goes to the first person who can identify Don't panic's quote, above.)
We could rename Alzheimers after him. "I'm sorry, but you have Ronald Reagans disease."
Or perhaps we could rename the SOA after Reagan.
Or we could build the largest federal building yet and name it after him in homage.
That would be chief attorney for the Army, Joseph Welch, at the Senate McCarthy hearings. Do I win the No-Prize?
Yup. I didn't think anyone would get it so fast!
Here's McConnell's web e-mail contact form: http://mcconnell.senate.gov/contact_form.cfm
Here's Rohrabacher's e-mail address: Dana@mail.house.gov
Let's let 'em know what we think of this idea. Probably won't help, but at least we'll know we tried.
And don't forget to contact your senators and representative as well.
This is ridiculous! I mean, if your gonna get his face on a note, at least make it the 100 dollar bill, not the 10. That way, only rich people who benefitted from his econimic policies would see him.
Thank God there is nothing serious going on like a war and social programs such as education, social security and health care are all completely flawless I was afraid this was a waste of time.
Also.. Hamiltion was only a revolutionary war hero, the founder of the Treasury, chose Washington DC as the site of the capitol, and an architect of our take on the capitalist system... of course an actor who traded missles for hostages from CA is a better choice.
It could be bigger...
my feeling exactly.
I actually choked on my coffee when I first read it. missed my PB by an inch.
i might be coming around in support of this idea. this country is so money-focused these days, i think it's appropriate to start replacing founding fathers images w/ those of modern day presidents, especially those for whom economic concerns, whether running huge deficits, adding to the welfare rolls, catering to big business and the rich, or greatly increasing the cost of living were goals and/or accomplishments.
whereas money featuring the founding fathers represents freedom, the new bills and coins could represent profit.
for starters, let's get reagan and gw bush all over the currency asap.
i think waiting would be a good idea....perhaps in 5 yearsyou don't want to have reagan anymore on the bill
was he really that good that you have to look at his face everytime you pay something ?
What Joseph Nye Welch's said to Senator Joseph McCarthy?
(Gotta phrase it in the form of a question, don't cha know?)
Perhaps Reagan should be put on the $1 bill...because with inflation, that will be the first to become relatively worthless...so his placement could be a reminder that he fights inflation from beyond the grave...
(the penny might work also)
I think its a bad idea to have Ronald Reagan replace Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill.
Alexander Hamilton is a Founding Father, that makes him bigger than a mere President.
If Ronald Reagan is going to replace anyone's portrait in US currency, it should either be in the $1 coin (Sacajawea), or dime (FDR).
I think a president should have to be dead for 100 years before his/her face goes on money!
i've decided that each president should get their own bill, the denomination of which is which president they were. so that would put reagan on the $40 bill.
we wouldn't have to replace the singles, and all americans would get better at arithmetic.
Speaking of bills... who stiill uses them? I prefer a Visa Check Card!
Reagan on the $10 bill? Why?
Hoperfully this silly idea will blow over in a few days. As soon as Reagan's out of the news, the idea will fade out. The average news channel's coverage attention lasts what, 7-10 days?
That is, of course, excluding celeb sex scandals and/or murders.
Don't worry, the day you guys get Reagan on the $10, we'll see Keith Moon on our £20.
It'll never happen. It's all trying to put the Republicans on the front page for positive reasons.
I hear Maggie Thatcher is going to be on the new £10 pound note. They said "Who the hell is this Charles Darwin fella? Let's get that mad old bat on there!"
$1 coin works for me.
