Groupon Celebrates Presidents Day by Honoring Alexander Hamilton (Idiots think he was president!)
Market Watch ^ | February 14, 2014

Posted on 02/15/2014 3:00:30 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Starting tomorrow, Groupon ( www.groupon.com ) (NASDAQ: GRPN) will be kicking off Presidents Day weekend by giving customers 10 dollars off 40 dollars when they purchase a deal for any local business. The $10 bill, as everyone knows, features President Alexander Hamilton -- undeniably one of our greatest presidents and most widely recognized for establishing the country’s financial system.

Beginning Saturday, Feb. 15 at 9 am CST, shoppers will be able to redeem this offer by using the promo code “10OFF40LOCAL”, which isn’t very catchy, but neither was President Hamilton’s famous saying, “nobody expects to trust his body overmuch after the age of fifty.” (continued)

He has elected president after he killed Aaron Burr in a duel. Jefferson only got one term.

One of the best presidents we never had. Ben Franklin was even better

How about no one at BusinesWire or MarketWatch catching on to this mistake? They are idiots for not noticing!

Someone came up with a promo idea, it went upward through a layer or two and was approved by a senior exec. How many sets of eyes missed the obvious? How many were university educated? Sheesh.

How many were university educated?

Most are liberal universities. So, there is your answer.

“President Alexander Hamilton — undeniably one of our greatest presidents and most widely recognized for establishing the country’s financial system. “

What’s next? Benedict Arnold being the founder of the CIA?

1912, when he defeated Wilson, Taft, and Roosevelt in a bitter 4-way race. He got on the nickel in 1913 right after he was inaugurated.

The reason Franklin is smirking on the $100 bill is that he was one Framer who was smart enough not to get elected president — and he knew it.

I think Bejamin Franklin was the best President. He is on the $100.00 bill. Doofuses abound.

President Steve Jobs invented the Apple. Without the Apple Issac Newton who was the Secretary of State under Jimmy Carter would never have observed gravity. Without the Apple no one would know who William Tell was, well he did write that overture. I love history.

Maybe I’m thick, but it sure comes across as a tongue in cheek joke to me. I think they are poking fun at the 1 in 4 Americans that thinks the sun revolves around the earth (urban Democrats with ObamaPhones).
