Hey Gipper, ME FIRST!
Perhaps you've heard of the effort supported by many conservatives to name everything, everywhere after Ronald Reagan. They were going to try and replace FDR on the dime with Ronnie, but Nancy said that was a dumb idea because FDR was Teflon Ron's hero.
Now they've moved on to the $10 bill, I guess making Aaron Burr fans very excited.
The bottom line here is this is a terrible idea, mainly because Reagan only died this year. I died in 1862 and I barely have shit named after me. Sure a few counties, some high schools, the occasional street -- don't get me wrong I like it, but I'll be damned if a b-movie actor gets some money before me.
Ronnie however, has a lot of living rich friends and crazed disciples -- in short resources. I've got a shitty free blog.
Subject: Reagan on the $10 Bill
President Martin Van Buren is way cooler than Ronald Reagan, even though they are both quite dead.
Some people think Ronald Reagan brought communism to its knees, but then again it could have just been their own bloated and corrupt infrastructure falling in on itself and he could have just slept through the '80s.
So why bother naming anything after Ronald Reagan? Especially when so few things are named after Martin Van Buren, who as we noted before is way cooler than Reagan.
I do think America must make sure that future generations never forget what President Reagan did. Make monkey movies; sell arms to Iran, Iraq, and the Afghanistani mujahideen who became Al Qaeda. Oh yeah, he also took lots of naps.
But that can be done over email or with encyclopedias; you don't need to re-name schools, airports or currency with his picture to remember that.
The time is right to not put Reagan on our currency. FDR, Eisenhower and JFK were all on currency less than a year from their deaths. But they were good Presidents. Martin Van Buren died in 1862, and still hasn't gotten his due -- WTF?
Please don't support the effort to put Reagan on the $10 bill! Instead lets make a new bill like, $12 or maybe the $500 so that Puff Daddy can still carry crazy cash but have a lighter wallet. Oh, don't forget the new money should totally have Martin Van Buren on it.
That would be awesome.
If we all get together with one voice as Americans we can build up my ego at the expense of another dead President!
