A Penny Saved?

I just have to! With things going the way they are in politics right now, I just have to renew this dumb debate. So read up:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penny_debate_in_the_United_States

And then, TO THE POLLS! Let's see what AK VOICE says about the little copper wonder. Is it a waste of time and money? Is the rounding that the Canadians now do the sign of the fall of Capitalism? Is using copper environmentally irresponsible and a good reason to ditch the penny? Do you make great artwork out of them by hammering them into fun shapes? Whatever, answer the poll and then take to the comments to give your...uh...two cents.

I think the fact that inflation has caused our money to be worth less than its physical representation is the bigger problem. Right now our money is just numbers that banks make up and the banks are owned by just a few individuals.

The rounding thing aa . I for one don't agree with it it sounds more like someone will lose in the end. And I have a hard enough time with the math as it is i go and mess with. But to to save metal by making one less slave coin. Is there a choice

 

You may be on to something...
