A little contest called the Dollar ReDes$ign Project has been launched on the web and I have to say the dismal design offerings being foisted on the public are a wonder to behold. But the worst ones are by Dowling Duncan.
The designs offered by Dowling Duncan envision a one dollar bill featuring a giant photo of Barak Obama and the 100 dollar bill featuring a photo of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Imagine that, huh?
The two presidents that hated capitalism and wealth most are on these prototypes! FDR and Obama are the most anti-wealth and anti-capitalist presidents we've ever had!! Obama and Roosevelt both made money the root of all evil in their presidencies. Well, except the money they were able to funnel to their pals, supporters, and party members, that is.
Roosevelt constantly kept the nation agitated against "speculators," even as he stole everyone's gold and enriched his pals. Obama has followed suit with his outright hatred of evil "bankers" and his constant attacks on that "greedy Wall Street" while at the same time taking millions in donations from the very people he tries to gin the public up against.
Yet these fools want to put the two most anti-capitalist presidents in history on a re-design of our money?
The irony is just thick, isn't it? Or maybe it isn't "irony"? Maybe it's just leftist hero worship and outright stupidity?
