LEAVE OUR MONEY ALONE
What in the hell is the matter with this Country, can’t they leave well enough alone, they say the Euro looks so spanky in comparison to our money, I don’t care one cent about that FOREIGN crappy looking money, we have money that looks just fine, and has worked just fine all these years, we are not EUROPE and we don’t need money that looks like theirs, if you want money like that move there and leave our alone.
Our money has worked fine all these years we don’t need to spend money that we don’t have to have some one make new plates at, what does it cost now to make just one plate, if you the American people are smart, tell them to stick it up their ASS, but the way this Country has been going, the people are so brain washed, they will do any thing this Administration tells them to do, this just how STUPID America has become.
How will this put people back to work by doing this, it won’t, it will only put more Government to work, and who’s idea is this, Oh the one that does not like this Country and says he is not muslim but bends over backwards to help them.
This guy seems to like Europe, so lets send him and his kind and any politician who wants to destroy this Country packing across the OCEAN where they want to live, we don’t need their crap here

The American dollar is in bad need of a makeover. Thanks to the Dollar ReDe$ign Project, we may now have some options.
Organized by creative strategy consultant Richard Smith, the Dollar ReDe$ign Project is soliciting ideas for the dollar bill of the future. “Our great ‘rival’, the Euro, looks so spanky in comparison it seems the only clear way to revive this global recession is to rebrand and redesign,” the project notes on its website.
Fisher started the project in with the intent of “trying to find a catalyst to restart our economy” he told Fox News. The recent competition is now closed, and voting ends on September 30. “This has touched people’s hearts,” Fisher said, and “people feel the dollar touches their lives.”
The leading vote-getter for this year’s competition (pictured below) was submitted by British duo Dowling Duncan, which features a unique vertical design.
Why a vertical format? “When we researched how notes are used we realized people tend to handle and deal with money vertically rather than horizontally,” they note on the Dollar ReDe$ign Project’s website. “You tend to hold a wallet or purse vertically when searching for notes. The majority of people hand over notes vertically when making purchases. All machines accept notes vertically. Therefore a vertical note makes more sense.”
Mark Gartland submitted the entry below, entitled “America Today.” The $50 bill features (pictured below) Sacagawea, the native American Indian who acted as Lewis and Clark’s interepreter and guide. Noting the “cosmetic drabness” of the current dollar bill, Gartland selected various historical icons from including Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln and President Obama to represent the “diverse fabric” of the U.S.
Self-taught web designer Sean Flanagan submitted “Moving Forward, Looking Back,” (below) which hews to many of “base color, size and orientation” of the classic dollar bill, but offers more than a few pleasant upgrades. Flanagan also utilized only American-designed typefaces and says his design would require at least “three different layers of solid ink,” a preemptive strike against counterfeiting.
If these money makeovers weren’t enough, The Dollar ReDe$ign Project has even circulated a petition to get the U.S. government to seriously consider their ideas. Which of these designs is your favorite?
