I say we put Ronald Reagan's face on the Trillion Dollar Coin

I'm reading about the so-called 'Trillion Dollar Coin', something Obama could do if the Republicans piss him off enough with this debt ceiling/budget stuff.

Now all the right-wing screeds are taking what was kinda a joke and making it sound like the government is seriously considering making one of these coins.

So I figured if Obama does do it just to spite the republicans they should put Ronald Reagan's face on it. First, because Reagan really did fuck our budget over big time and second because the Right-wing has been screaming forever to put Reagan's face on currency somewhere.

BTW

5. The law regarding faces on coins requires the person so depicted to be deceased.

 

Regardless of the state of his brain, Mr. Bush si still quite alive.

19. DAMN IT!!! Totally forgot that. OK, how about...

A scene on the back of the Reagan coin depicting Dubya's "Mission Accomplished" moment complete with embossed "Mission Accomplished" banner at the tip.
Maybe paint the back for extra tacky cheese and classless cheese.

20. I still prefer Reagan on the obverse and a depiction of the Boston Tea Party on the reverse.

 

It's like closing a circle in my mind.

14. reagan-bush connection


when Reagan left office I doubt he could have gotten elected as dog catcher in his home town- the myth took years to take hold that he was a great leader! now who was in charge of mis- information way back! ya got it BUSH SENIOR!
When you put the two together you got the combo who wasted the wealth of america! from the richest nation to the largest debtor!

29. I say we pay tribute to Reagonomics by having a picture of a CEO peeing on his workers.

Because after all Reagonomics got us in this mess and the damage has been done for decades, maybe a century.
