PC Run Amok

In the 240 years of our nation, no more egregious politically correct act has happened than the announcement of a new picture on our twenty dollar bill. First it was determined that it had to be a woman. Then if that wasn't enough, how about a black woman abolitionist?

My objection isn't that she is not deserving of being honored, it is the degree. Today's announcement that former slave, Harriet Tubman would replace Jackson on the $20 bill. As a famous black neurosurgeon said in his remarks, why replace a famous former president? Why not re activate the $2 bill. Discarding Jackson was unnecessary and a rejection of our past history.

Every time I use a cash machine, I'll be reminded of the severity of how far the Obama administration will go to revise our past. His legacy will definitely linger, but not for good reasons.
