Obama aims to follow Canada to ditch Penny

BY ALL MEANS! DO IT!
Why lie anymore to the American People? You already posited raising minimum wage much to the hooting and hollering of Belt Way insiders, this would be icing on the cake.

Obama went on to suggest the penny is a “good metaphor” for some of the larger problems facing lawmakers as they seek to reduce the deficit.

“This is not going to be a huge savings for government. But anytime we’re spending more money on something that people don’t actually use, that’s an example of something we should probably change,” he said.

The jokes are writing themselves these days.

You can sell me all your 1982

You can sell me all your 1982 pennies at face and I'll weigh and sort them for myself. I put anything 1981 or older in one pile, wheats in their own pile, 1982 in their own pile, and 1983 and newer in their own pile. Then I sort the 1982 pile by weight and they either go to the 1981 and older pile or the 1983 and newer pile.

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.
