Speaking of Lincoln, what we need now is a John Wilkes Booth. Lincoln needs to die.
Obama says he would seriously consider killing him. And he’s the one that is in favor of change.
Kill the Lincoln penny. Kill the penny. Period.
I think Old Honest Abe would want it that way. He was a frugal guy, he didn’t like copperheads, (Democrats who opposed his policies.) Prawley didn’t like the snakes either.
He’s already on the fiver, has a wonderful monument in the District of Columbia, a nice likeness is carved into the side of a mountain.
I don’t think he’d mind if the U.S. pulled a Booth and killed the Lincoln penny. It’s scheduled for a “rear” lift to commemorate his birthday. I guess they are probably already being minted.
What do you do with your pennies? Save (hoard) them? So you got 1,000 pennies in a jar someplace. That’s 2 1/2 gallons of gas. OTOH, it’s 10 McDonald’s hamburgers. But we really don’t need the penny anymore.
You know who loves pennies? Zinc and copper miners, and the coin counter makers.
It’s time to J.W. Booth Lincoln.
And the nickel too. (costs 7 1/2 cents to make.) July 4, 2009 (he died on July 4) would be a great time to kill Jefferson.
Obama has it wrong, we need is less “change.”
