Pennies, for a majority of people, are just little worthless pieces of mass that are left basins collecting dust, being thrown into water fountains for luck, and at times are refused at supermarkets because of how little they are worth. Along with what the average American does with their pennies, the smallest United States currency is costing us more than seven million dollars a year, in the retail business alone. The Department of Defence doesn’t think that pennies are even worth it. As stated by Chris Ward in paragraph one of Source #2, “Pennies are too heavy and are not cost-effective to ship.” As well as, according to Source #2, “The U.S. Congress is considering eliminating the penny from the United States currency system.” We believe that pennies should be eliminated from U.S. currency because they cost more to make than they are worth, a large number of countries have already rid of the penny with great success, and there is already a system in
Boo frequently highlights this issue in her book providing numerous examples. Firstly, free municipal education hardly ever is efficient. According to the author, almost 60% of the public school teachers do not have even an undergraduate degree (Boo 85). Mirchi and other similar schoolchildren are not likely to acquire necessary education that could have potentially helped them and their families to escape poverty. Moreover, they risk learning nothing at all since at public school they mostly “play, take recess, play again, then have lunch” (Boo 85).
On average, businesses in the United States pay around $3.7 trillion on their payroll each year. Experts estimate that businesses lose around $148 billion because of inefficient time card punching processes. How do business owners lose so much money to time card punching?

When an interview is conducted on the subjects, the amount of time and money they claim to spend on shopping is surprising. A large number these people use credit cards, where half of them are not able to pay every month. Cases of bankruptcy increase as citizens are more consumed with spending other than saving. Finally, the film Freedom Fries: And Other Stupidity We’ll Have to Explain to Our Grandchildren tries to offer solutions to the negative methods used by the government.
I make this statement, because the service he provides me with, I could use to accomplish a lot of the other services that the other miracle workers offer. For example, making millions of dollars would ensure me popularity, which is the service “Pop” Larity offers. Also, the service Dwight D. DeGawl provides, which is ensuring that I would be looked up to, listened to, and respected by others around me, would also be solved by Rocky Fellah’s service. Although I do not want it to be true, with money comes a lot of respect, and most people who are rich are looked up

Training costs money, so who is going to pay for it? The Government, who would also pay a year of living expenses to this person. About 63 million Americans volunteer each year, and excess of 300 billion dollars are donated each year. Americans on their own see the good in giving and volunteering their time and/or money. I feel like knowing you are forced to do a service most people aren 't going to want to do is going to create a lot of emotional problems such as depression or anxiety, suicide would be a factor too.

And while this may have been the norm in 1959, in 2015 it takes two paychecks to even come close to this idea. Source E states that “the American dream costs approximately $130,000 annually.” The American dream will not only take over two paychecks but also the entirety of your human spirit and the well- being of the household. Once you sell your soul to gain material items, the dream has already zoomed by you and on to the next bigger and better good. This constant feeling of inadequacy talked about in source F fuels a drive to be the best among all and prompts Americans to dust off the boxes of love and integrity just in time for their next garage sale of used and unneeded items to make room for the latest and greatest car that you have to have. Martin Luther King gave his ‘I have a dream’ speech in 1963, a time when the American dream was being equal with fellow American, now that dream has twisted into one of greed and self-indulgence.
