America's rich tradition

America has a rich tradition putting our most honored leaders on its currencies.

George Washington, our nation's first president and leader of the American Revolution is memorialized on the one dollar bill.

Abe Lincoln, our most honorable leader, pulled our nation through its darkest time is memorialized on the five dollar bill.

Alexander Hamilton, founding father, first secretary of the treasury, and leader of the constitutional convention is memorialized on the ten dollar bill.

Andrew Jackson, "Old Hickory", fought the British in New Orleans is memorialized on the twenty dollar bill.

Ulysses Grant, Union army general, lead the North through the Civil War is memorialized on the fifty dollar bill.

Ben Franklin, genius inventor, political theorist, and leading author of the constitution is memorialized on the one hundred dollar bill.

Finally, George W. Bush, who lead America into an unnecessary war under false pretenses, and who turned America's national surplus into its record debt is memorialized on the food stamp!

Wouldn't that be a fitting tribute to the mess W has left behind.

There is always this assumption that men on American currency were presidents. So many people have thought Franklin was a president. I always used to think that the important pesidents were always put on the bills that were highest in circulation, like the $1 bill.

The same string has also been sent with Obama's pic on the food coupon.
