Happy Fourth of July to all out there who, despite our elected congressmen and women screwing up our country/economy, still have faith that one way or another the middle class will come back from being sheeple and stand up to these same elected and get them to get our shit straight, stop making pennies, stop bailing out banks and stop fucking with the Healthcare system to help the ‘elite’ line their pockets with more taxpayer dollars. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Andy Griffith died yesterday, as I am sure you have heard. I can remember watching the Andy Griffith show. I don’t think there is anyone in this country over the age of 35 who cannot whistle the theme song. Never got into Matlock, though. I always thought of Andy Griffith as being the down home NC boy. To my knowledge, he was wholesome trustworthy and was never associated with any wrongdoing. I always thought Andy and Bill Cosby would be good buddies. I am sure there will be a movie about his life in the future.
While in Myrtle Beach last week, I was elated to hear that the restaurant CreekRatz does not even use pennies. They just round up. One small step towards getting rid of the modern monetary economic oxymoron. To be fair, here are the arguments, pro and con for the 1 cent piece. Canada will stop making them this fall and we should be doing the same.
