Scoring & Annotations

I think we should just get rid of the penny. All it is is just one cent and nothing even costs one cent. I mean I would understand if something costs one cent but nothing does so why do we still have it? Its the most pointless thing in the world it would help get rid of some of our odd prices. We need to just eliminate all penny from our cash registers to give it more room for a different coin like a fifty cent peice. We should just get rid of it because it is the most pointless coin that there is. If canada is willing to get rid of their pennies we should to. the pennies are what is giving us odd prices so if we got rid of them the only odd price we would have was a nickel, then we could soon and hopefully get rid of them too. And we could have everyone scrap the pennies to get themselves some cash. And that is what i think we should do with the penny we could get rid of them any way and get them out of our registers.
