Someone my husband used to work with thought this up.... at least he presented it as his own. Smile

Read recently that it cost 2.41 cents to make a cent; and our government is making cents so there must be a need. Employing the “what goes around comes around” principal of macro and micro economics I have developed a procedure which could do much to bolster our nation’s economy:

Step One - Every American goes to a bank and buys 100 pennies; that is unless you have a jug of them sitting somewhere in the house.

Step Two - We then sell the pennies to the US Treasury for 1.41 cents each; which allows each American to make a forty-one cent profit for every 100 cent investment; and the government could save 100 cents for every 100 cents made simply by buying rather than making.

Give or take a few there are 311,592,000 Americans so if each bought and then sold 100 pennies - in the first week they would have an extra $127,752,720.00 of discretionary funds to spend on Step Three; and the government would have saved $311,592,000.

Step Three - take all those discretionary funds plus their initial investment of 100 pennies each and buy more pennies and sell all of them to the government; which would mean that by the end of the second week we would have an additional profit of $180,131,330.00 to reinvest in more pennies to be bought and sold in week three. And by the end of the second week Uncle Sam would have saved $750,936,720.00.

Keep repeating the process for fifty-two weeks and Americans would have so much extra spending money they wouldn’t know what to do with it all; and the Government would no longer have to buy oil from Venezuela - they would have saved so much money that they could afford to just buy Venezuela, lock, stock and barrel - for cash; no need to get China involved.

Some people seem to enjoy being so depressed about the state of the country they can’t come up with creative solutions - Me - tomorrow I’m going to send the treasury a proposal to sell them a hundred pennies - and see if I can save this great country of ours.

Food Intolerances : Gluten, casein, soy, and avenin, (avenin is the prolamin in oats, which is equivalent to the gluten in wheat), beef, grapes, peanuts, cashews, almonds, (but nut butters seem OK except for peanuts), citric acid, chocolate, and agar.

It is suspected that some of the hardest material known to science can be found in the skulls of GI specialists who insist that diet has nothing to do with the treatment of microscopic colitis.
