has any one ever noticed that if you lay a quarter,dime,nickle,and penny next to each other and all facing heads up, that the PENNY, "the lowest amount", "the only brown one", and "he is facing the opposite direction of all the others". of course Abraham Lincoln is the president on it, and isn't he the one who wanted to abolish slavery? why is his coin dark and all different? or am i just blazzzed, but foreal wtf?! lol

The penny is not brown it's a bright copper when it's made. And how about this, the penny is the only coin that costs more to make than it is actually worth.

First of all Lincoln had to intentions of abolishing slavery, do your research. His only concern was the well being of a united country. He had actually started shipping slaves back to Africa before he was killed.

The penny is copper (brown) because its the only material that would be somewhat cost effective to make pennies with

They should just get rid of pennies. Just round to five's and zero's and make my life easier i say

*Take a hit*

The reason Lincoln is facing the other way is because he was the only one who wasn't a Free Mason.

And because he was shot in the back of the head. He's still paranoid

Whoa. Well I noticed the same thing man. I actually came up with a conclusion. No it's not racist because of the penny color.
Why Lincoln is the only colored one and facing a different direction from all the other coins is because Lincoln free'd the slaves and alot of people think that he tuned his back against America, hence him facing the other direction. So in a sense it is racist, but I don't think because of the color.

I thought all of that like 2 days ago yeah i thinkits racist and pretty fucked up and also if it costs more to make the penny then what the fucks the point the government is just wasting more of our fuckin money i totally agree with that guy above it does make it alot easier to round of to 5s and 0s and the best part about this idea is the government can melt to copper and we could all get a little more money back on a tax rebate or something. Shit we need to get this done cause that means more weed for all of us

Ok guys, riddle me this. if the owners of the reserve charge the govt 1% per $1 made, how do we get out of debt. We have to go to the reserve and ask for more $, and they charge us 1% off the top of that. so the fact that the penny takes more to make than its worth matters not. the govt pays 1.1 cent for every penny made, the only people that loose out on the cost of craft is the fed reserve.....
