Default Redesigning our currency?

– Fri Sep 17, 5:24 pm ET The American dollar is in bad need of a makeover. Thanks to the Dollar ReDe$ign Project, we may now have some options.
Organized by creative strategy consultant Richard Smith, the Dollar ReDe$ign Project is soliciting ideas for the dollar bill of the future. "Our great 'rival', the Euro, looks so spanky in comparison it seems the only clear way to revive this global recession is to rebrand and redesign," the project notes on its website.
Fisher started the project in with the intent of "trying to find a catalyst to restart our economy" he told Fox News. The recent competition is now closed, and voting ends on September 30. "This has touched people's hearts," Fisher said, and "people feel the dollar touches their lives."
The leading vote-getter for this year's competition (pictured below) was submitted by British duo Dowling Duncan, which features a unique vertical design.

Why a vertical format? "When we researched how notes are used we realized people tend to handle and deal with money vertically rather than horizontally," they note on the Dollar ReDe$ign Project's website. "You tend to hold a wallet or purse vertically when searching for notes. The majority of people hand over notes vertically when making purchases. All machines accept notes vertically. Therefore a vertical note makes more sense."
Mark Gartland submitted the entry below, entitled "America Today." The $50 bill features (pictured below) Sacagawea, the native American Indian who acted as Lewis and Clark's interepreter and guide. Noting the "cosmetic drabness" of the current dollar bill, Gartland selected various historical icons from including Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln and President Obama to represent the "diverse fabric" of the U.S.

Self-taught web designer Sean Flanagan submitted "Moving Forward, Looking Back," (below) which hews to many of "base color, size and orientation" of the classic dollar bill, but offers more than a few pleasant upgrades. Flanagan also utilized only American-designed typefaces and says his design would require at least "three different layers of solid ink," a preemptive strike against counterfeiting.

If these money makeovers weren't enough, The Dollar ReDe$ign Project has even circulated a petition to get the U.S. government to seriously consider their ideas.

The end game for the Illuminati/Mystery Babylonian thugs is global government with satan in the flesh at the end.(ie-from what I understand, they are anticipating 'lord maitreya' to be the guy)

However, it's not exactly going to last the "1000 years of age of aquarius peace" that they think it will...

Rev 14:15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
Rev 14:16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.
Rev 14:17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
Rev 14:18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
Rev 14:19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
Rev 14:20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.


Rev 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
Rev 6:13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
Rev 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
Rev 6:15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
Rev 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
Rev 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?


1Th 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
1Th 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
1Th 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.


Mat 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Mat 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Mat 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together hiselect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.


You should listen to William F. Cooper's 42 part audio Mystery Babylon series he did 10 years ago. It is mind-blowing stuff.

History lesson:
Back in the late 1800's, there weren't many schools or education programs about history, science and art, so there were US dollars (notes back then because gold was still the currency) made that had specially designed art that signified certain historical events, or science and let people appriciate art in general. This redesigned of currency is not a terrible idea and obviously these people are doing it for reletively the same reason.

But, you can't put a presiden who's only been in office 2 years and has very low approval ratings on any dollar bill. He could turn out to be the worst president ever, its like that school that named itself after Obama when he was elected, what if he turns out to be a really bad president, they'll be embarassed lol.

Even James Buchanan has a high school named after him, and James Pierce even has a law school named in his honor. It doesn't really get much worse than those two, except for maybe George W. Honestly, Obama is looking worse than his predecessor to this point, and the future doesn't project very well considering his apposing party will probably make up ground in the mid-terms.

Nevertheless, Obama is the first black president, which is historically significant. Personally, though, I would prefer to put Martin Luther King on our currency than Barry, since MLK has really only helped this country, while the majority of Obama's 'solutions' will wind up hurting the U.S. in the long run.

I can't remember where I read it, but I believe that you can't put a living president on currency. I could be absolutely wrong, but it would make sense.

I don't want to see Obama's face on a bill either though, believe me. I do like the up and down look of the bills though, and the fact that they are different heights. Would take away a lot of confusion of someone giving a wrong bill.

Pierce was a really good lawyer and lived by the law, when he was sworn in he did it on a law book instead of the bible, the school probably isn't named after him for being a president but a great lawyer.

Buchanan is actually viewed as a great president, but the problems between the North and South which led to the civil war overshadowed his presidency.

There is a George W Bush elementary school, I think they named it that when he did the whole child left behind act. Only one though, and I don't think anyone cares because more students go to it than any other elementary in the state.

I think the school only did it to have some recognition. The first school to be named after Obama. Like if he became the best president ever, the school would be famous, but if he fails, everyone is just gonna be like "tsk tsk tsk"
