There is a move afoot in congress to add the face of Ronald Reagan to the monument at Mt Rushmore.What is your opinion do you feel his accomplishments warrant such an honor?

Can't we just have a special commemorative red, white, and blue Jelly Belly molded in the shape of his face instead?

Won't that be less expensive to the taxpayer and pump up the candy industry, thereby improving the economy at the same time?

Can't we be satisfied with the Ronald Reagan Collector's Edition coin, and plate, or maybe a big copper-coated lifesize bust available on the Home Shopping Club for $349.95 or five easy payments of $69.99?

Consider this proposal


Reagan the new face of the $10 bill?

Published report says conservatives will push for image of 40th president to grace $10 bill or dime.
June 8, 2004: 7:34 AM EDT


NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Ronald Reagan's face could soon adorn the $10 bill or half the dimes minted in the country, if fans of the late president get their way, according to a published report.

USA Today reported Tuesday that Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., plans to sponsor legislation to have Reagan replace Alexander Hamilton, the nation's first treasury secretary, on the $10 bill. The proposal has the support of Ronald Reagan Legacy Project, which is headed by Grover Norquist, an influential conservative activist.
The paper says Democrats in Congress are not a ready to embrace the idea, though none would come out opposed to the idea in the wake of Reagan's death Saturday.

The decision about who is on currency is up to the secretary of treasury. A spokeswoman for current Treasury Secretary John Snow said any discussion of putting Reagan on the bill is "premature." But the paper quotes Norquist as saying that he has already had discussions with Snow and senior White House staff about the idea and found no opposition.
If Reagan is not put on the $10, an alternate proposal is to have half the nation's dimes carry Reagan's face, with the other half continuing to honor Franklin D. Roosevelt. The idea of removing Roosevelt from the dime altogether in favor of Reagan had enough opposition, even from Nancy Reagan, to be dropped, the paper said.
One person opposing removing Hamilton from the $10 bill is Ron Chenow, author of an acclaimed biography of the revolutionary war hero and founding father. He told USA Today that he believed Reagan would have objected to the snub of Hamilton.

As there really isn't any more room for heads on Mt. Rushmore, maybe we can remove Teddy Roosevelts head and put Reagans on there instead! Of course, it should be a fist-term pre-dementia, pre-Iran-Contra Reagan. Actually, I would rather have FDR's or Kennedy's head up there before Reagan's. As for GW Bush, the only place I'd like to see his head is on a stick.

I just watched all those proposals on CNN.
You Americans are hilarious. It's always great fun to witness you guys getting swept away by media-hypes of any kind.
If I ever get into a powerful position at an American TV channel, then I'm gonna start hypes like "Hail to the cows baby - If the cow wasn't there we wouldn't be able to enjoy OUR PATRIOT BURGERS!!".
You betcha it won't take long and cows're gonna be holy animals just like in India, with every cow having an American flag attached to its genitals.

Hey NickFun..relax baby.
Are you kind of referring to some of my posts? Cuz I can't remember having written anything about those gay-sounding Brits in their London palaces...well OK I think I once mentioned the birthday of some Queen but that wasn't inteded to praise her or anything.

BPB, I can see that exact same dish. How 'bout adding some mashed peace, freedom, and liberty?

Personally I would like to see Bill Clintons penis on Mt. Rushmore.

It has certainly been the topic of more conversation than anything in political history.....

I had a devil of a time finding any images from the old video.

Good Lord, Bear!
Didn't we learn anything from Nippelgate?
If you put a penis on MT Rushmore than the Americans would simply go crazy, burn down their churches, slaughter little girls with blond hair, burn women because they are witches, have slavery returned, declare war on Upper Canada, attack the Spanish Armada, declare war on Great Britain because they don't let them sit in the British Parliament, attack the British colonies in India and Persia, declare war on Prussia because Willhelm II. stinks, have the Russian Zsar assassinated because Orthodoxy sucks, and last but not least have themselves a freakin masturbation-orgy that would leave the economy totally wrecked behind due to lack of available workpower.
