    Re: Pennies GTFO!

    any currency that costs more than its actual value, should be scapped.

    pennies...even nickels.

    its not that hard to round up at 5 and higher..and round down at 4 and lower.

    I do the same thing. Polls usually inspire the best debate on this website IMO.

    He's both - in and out. . . he's served in a variety of ways over the years - he started out Airborne - was out for a while and came back in - he's a specialist so he floats around a lot - he deployed with different units across branches so he's not pegged down. . . and now he's IRR

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    LOL - life of service, always waffling on whether he was to stay in or leave . . . he jokes that he's homeless without a unit.

    Re: Pennies GTFO!

    Getting rid of pennies is not "advanced". It's a reflection of how worthless currencies are due to the financial malpractice of those in charge. The annoyance of pennies should be a reminder of this and the more worthless a penny becomes the better it is for them to stay. To get rid of pennies is to prevent negative headlines about how much it costs to make pennies. To get rid of pennies is to take pressure off the state.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    no.. no... you dont get it weight vs value of the penny in transportation, cost of the coin in its materials... etc... economy wide.

    theres a trillion smart reasons to get rid of the penny.
