Money Memes

Not long after it became official that Harriet Tubman would be replacing Andrew Jackson on the U.S. $20 bill, some folks felt the need to show their displeasure at the move.

A photo appeared on Facebook, showing the current U.S. bank notes - from the $1 up to the $100 - with the words,

"Like and share if you think only presidents should be on our money".

Let's be sure to take note that the man on the $10 (Alexander Hamilton) as well as the man on the $100 (Benjamin Franklin) were not Presidents of the United States. If we were to eliminate non-POTUS from U.S. currency, those two would have to go.

The following day, a photo of a $20 with the face of Sitting Bull on it made it's way onto Facebook - along with the words,

 "How about a real American on the $20?"

So much for the "only POTUS should be on currency" argument.

Do people even read the memes they post on Facebook?
