Why is the US still minting pennies?

I mean, literally. It's useless. They dont even work as currency anymore. Parking meter, public tollbooths, vending machines, etc. dont even accept them. We're wasting millions a year minting on a coin that doesnt even work as currency.

Canada stopped the minting of their pennies recently and many other countries and they havent seen inflation or anything else.

its crazy cause it cost over 2.15 pennies to make a single penny. And we produce billions of pennies every year just to sit under our couches. 

My name is ASAC Schrader, and you can go fuck yourself.

Don't act like you fucking care about this shit, ur like one of them bandwagon fags who sees something about on the news and jump on it asap, i bet Kony's dick was in you when that shit was everywhere. 

Just stfu. we got no power in this game.

President is the Dungeon Master, we are just players in a game where we have to level up and try to out level each other as much as possible and feel better than the other. 

Fuck humanity and how it has turned into. 

Material things control our lives. We work for money. Money to live in a house. Money to drive cars. Money to show off. We live for fucking money so that we can buy things.

Fuck your penny. Fuck the social mentality.

Fuck it. Ima just live in a forest with box logos on me.

I believe it is because it will actually cost the US money to stop producing them. I am going to look it up now.
