Wasted Words

I see the U.S. Mint is going to try make the Dollar coin catch on, again. There's going to be a new Dollar coin in 2007.

The one mistake they keep making is they keep printing the Dollar bill. Until they get rid of the bill, the coin is never going to catch on. It is time we get rid of the bill and save the money from having to print the bill, the coins will last longer.


While we're at it, lets get rid of the penny. Round everything to the nearest nickel, I don't think anyone would mind. They been doing that already on U.S. Military bases overseas, and it has worked well. It costs too much to have to maintain the penny coin, and it will make counting cash much easier for businesses.


When the U.S. population was asked about this issue, the majority of the people wanted to keep the penny and Dollar bill. Why? Because they don't want to change? Why are we asking them, let the Mint and the Bureau Of Engraving and Printing make the decision for business reasons, do it because it will save money, our tax money.

They have yet to make a dollar coin that isn't often confused with the quarter because they keep trying to make them smaller. Only the old ones are easy to spot.

I'm tired of all coins myself, they wear out my pockets. I just end up with cans full of coins cuz I don't put them back in my pocket the next morning.

I don't think they should make another dollar coin. But those monkeys have to keep screwing around you know.

I hope this one is bigger than a quarter. Sheesh.

People need to accept the change... no pun intended... heh heh. It probably means there will be insane hoarding of pennies and dollar bills, plus money earrings and wallpaper.
