Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
Join Jim and Greg as they welcome news of at least one prosecutor willing to file felony charges over rioters tearing down a statue. They also discuss old timer’s night at the Democratic National Convention with a special focus on John Kerry’s dishonest history and Bill Clinton still being invited to speak despite his #MeToo history and yesterday’s Epstein revelations. And they have fun as the woke left even tries to cancel suffragette Susan B. Anthony.

I liked the Susie B.’s. They were Constitutionally legal, unlike those Federal Reserve Notes.
I dislike the term “Junk Silver” to describe old coins that are melted because their silver is more valuable than their face value. I would prefer “constitutional silver” – but that doesnt seem be catchy.
As I recall, the S.B. Anthony dollars were originally supposed to be polygons instead of round, so that visually impaired people could tell the difference between them and quarters by feel.
But then, to save money, they decided to screw the blind and make them round anyway.
BTW, the Sacajawea dollars carry a generic Native American woman, because she died shortly after the expedition, and before anyone could paint her portrait. By contrast, we have nine portraits of Pocahontas.
