www.google.ca takes the time to commemorate the Canadian penny as it officially heads into retirement starting today.
There’s still about 6 million in circulation so there’s no way of knowing how long until they are phased out completely, but the government estimates scrapping the coin will save them about 11 million dollars a year.
Congratulations, Canada, for acting rationally.
You are not just America’s hat. In this way and many others, you are America’s wise and resource-rich uncle whom just as a reminder we could conquer at any time.
Why don’t you burn your dick off you arrogant, American fucknugget. Maybe you guys could conquer us whenever but you know what? When you look at your medical bills in horror; when you sigh as the barista has to give you 4 pennies instead of just 1 nickel; when you turn 19 but have to wait another 2 years to legally drink; I will be laughing. Drinking bagged milk, eating Ruffles All Dressed chips, bathing in your blood… and laughing.
Think before you belittle my country again. *hops on moose and rides into the distance*

History isn’t one straight line progressing towards a liberal society.
Look how much Americans attitudes have changed between 1980 and today. 1980 was the first time most very religious people voted, they abstained before that at the behest of their churches. Now they dictate policy at every election.
In my family photo album there are pictures from the 20s of a woman called ‘uncle bob’. She dressed in men’s clothing, and had a ‘companion’. This was a rough industrial town, they were working class, nobody cared. It was her business.
This is why politics is important - the moment you think everything is better today than it was in the past, you let other people take control of the direction society goes in - with you sitting back presuming we’re going forwards.
