    Maybe everyone should be concerned in general about the rising cost of copper and other mined ores and minerals that we rely on for many things in life - and then figure out how to bring it down.

    If they focused on the source of the issue they'd actually get somewhere. . . simply tyring to get rid of the penny won't make copper cheaper

    If you're not going to do a real poll, I'm not even going to bother with the thread.

    I though this was a serious poll.So as a result I failed to read both options and accidentally voted yes.

    Someone else did a real poll on the subject

    We should keep the penny.I use pennies, lot of people I know use pennies. When you have have to stretch that dollar out every penny counts.

    "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"

    We are way past the age of pennies. They are a pita.

    That is penny wise pound foolish. Just keep a donation box at the cash counter and all the pennies can go to charity.

    pennies are made out of zinc since 1982, Problem is whatever you make them out of they will still cost more than they are worth. As time and inflation continue to fly by they will be worth less and less and cost more and more, At some point they will have to go. Looks like Canada has reached that point. May take the US longer but eventually they will have to do something.
