The most secure currency in U.S. history was introduced into the economy today, as a newly redesigned, colorful $20 bill was issued by the Federal Reserve System.
The new $20 note issued by the Treasury Department includes peach and blue colours and the greenback even has a copper tinge when tilted in the light

Great...more confusion from stupid grocery clerks, requiring a manager to come over and verify my $20's.... Thank goodness for ATM cards.....

Jeez... Garzok, you are absoutely correct. I remember being in an airport shortly after the current 20 and 50 were released. It took nearly 30 minuites to retrieve my 30 dollars that the clerk claimed I hadn't given her.... I almost missed my plane.

She finally opened the cashbox and realized that she had a $50 in the $20 drawer. "Oops, sorry...."

the reason they did the 20 first because it is the most common bill, and commonly used. Either way, id agree, now it just going to take longer at the store, when they have to look at the fuc_ing bill for 5 minutes!

oh God i wish we just went back to the U.S. Government Gold Standard.
But no, thanks to FDR, we have the Federal Reserve Board, a private bankers group who prints fiat money. Read my quote from Jefferson, it's quite true.

How wonderful, "Colorful and Fashionably Conscious Money for the Metrosexual's of Today"

Typical (NWO) American Mentality when more time and attention is paid to the beautification of the Currancy than to the Country for which that Currency is made for. I guess the simple plain green $20's that the Rich Fat Greedy Bastards Stole from the Majority of this Country Causing Further Economic Failure just weren't good enough for em so they had to make prettier one's. Glad to see our priorities are being addressed properly!

Hey, JFK wanted to go back to the gold standard...look where he is.... Doesn't seem to be a popular opinion of the NWO....

The irony is that Andrew Jackson fought against the idea of a federal reserve bank tooth and nail and now look where he is chosen to be remembered. On a note issued by the very people he detested.

"Your a den of vipers and by God, I'll route you out!!"

-Andrew Jackson refering to the advocates for a federal bank.

Perhaps they want to confuse people

If you think thats confusing you should see the Euro notes. Your wallet would look like a rainbow. Each countries notes and coins have there own images and landmarks on them, and they'll eventually be swapped about through all the countries. I think thats pretty cool though, history and geography lessons from your money!
