    There's been "tons of women" on US banknotes already -- Lady Liberty, Lady Justice and a pile of various allegorical unnamed women. What's not been featured is an actual woman outside of Martha Washington on a few of the $1 notes in the 1800s.

    I'd love to see Admiral Grace Hopper on a bill, but there are many deserving candidates.

    AS a navy vet and computer lover, she would be my choice. She is simply so totally ****ing cool.

    Way back in the early 80's I was in a computer class at a community college and she was supposed to speak to our class, but got sick

    But, she was a true pioneer, the company I work for now does a lot of work with the Grace Hopper foundation for women in data processing and programming.

    Because he is the founder of the party pushing this kind of ****.
    Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
