What can I get...

...for a penny these days?

If I could get a penny's worth of everything just maybe I'd be cool and secure.

On the real though, the price of everything needs to be lowered down into 99 cent worth of pennies unto one cent worthy a penny. Wages should be inside that range of a pennies only era. All types of homes should be in that range of pennies. Then, we'd all be better off. We could get rid of dollar money all together, and burn it. The pennies worth would rise and the value of things would also rise inside the penniship money reign. Then also, no one can short change you, because everything would have to be paid in exact change. Not to say you'd have a lot of pennies from the left over, because the penny we'd use would change in design. And so, you of course know you wouldnt get paid much in pennies, which means you dont have to carry all that change. You'd prolly work for one penny, say, every four hours worth of wage work. That one penny should be able to buy you, say, a whole meal with beverage for one. So all in all, we'd be buying most common things in bulks or in packages/boxes of whatever mixed or the same. You couldn't buy just a soda/pop can alone anymore. And this means whatever you dont need from a sold together package you can just give to someone else in an act of kindness unless you owe em back after they broke you off something from what they bought. So also it would be a world of sharing even, where there is no must that someone owe you back, depending of course. When we were young we were taught that we were supposed to share.

The penny days would be sweet instead of these in dollar amounts of money which only act to make it look like you got a lot. True major value comes packed in less. Less is more like that Charmen Toilet Paper commercial. Big things come in small packages, remember?

In a pennies only world I should be able to get me an average computer for the same amount in pennies as a modern average house or modern average jet boat or modern adverage car should cost. See how also value would raise in my point when it would maybe, say, have average computers on the same level as average vechiles? All these bundles of paper money is like a big blown up ego just to show off self-worth.

What do you think?

At least with pennies they could be all backed by pressious metals as we compact worth into those lil things and in turn raise the value to certain things we'd buy with it. It only makes since.

Another example:

That arcade video game would cost you only a penny for, say, six sure attempts just in case you lose five, knowing you could have bought, say, a meal with beverage with that one penny. So yes, the price to play a video game arcade machine would raise in value. And you even get bulk it in your attempts at playing, too, which should account for something with the costomer, to make them maybe feel it is worth the one penny just as much as the wanted meal with beverage is when hungry.

Why come it couldnt have been like such already instead of having to have all the extra counting and sorting in monies, and having to have all that excess extra money (that could blow in the wind) to transport or put in some bank account? A bank vault wouldnt have to be that big under the whole 'big value put in' pennies era.

Yes, i think, but, if you notice all pennies made lately are not copper, but lighter nickel or aluminum or something.
not a one-liner!

With a one cent unto 99 cent price range cap on everything being sold (goods or services) ppl can still earn or save over 99 cent.

Like Pac said: "I know you glad to see the strategy of making these chips come so easily."--Soon as I get home

Who would have thought lil pennies we can make pack much worth? Who would have thought that goods and services we can make, also with doing that, pack much value?

The Fed, the economist, the anybody else behind the monitary system cant see pass the ego of self-worth that makes it so the money and money price has no cap. The money cap is the penny as only legal tender coinage currency. Nothing more. Nothing pass the penny, as in, no nickle to no dollar. The money price cap is the range of cost: 1-99 cent and nothing more per service and per good. And not a you have to have 99 cent toward some continueing monthly loan. If there is a loan or a monthly service it must not exceed 99 cent for the year. So you can pay as low as 1 cent up to 99 cent toward a service fee or a loan. So the cable bill would be, say, 24 pennies a year... You should be able to pay 2 pennies monthly till you complete a full 12 month year to where you will have paid 24 pennies. This is just an example. Loan return and service fees must not exceed 99. Different services may have it you may pay up to 99 cent each time the service is used whereas others that are a continuence type service you may pay up to 99 cent per year. The convieniant services like cable may or may not switch from a yearly costing service not to exceed 99 to a 'pay as you watch' type service (where it could then be you pay 1 cent, say, per hour you watch).

^^All in all then there would be no economic problems where you get a bunch of years to pay off something or where you get to get something you cant afford within a full year.

Flip the 6s to 9s, and you get 99. No coincidence to the 99 cent price cap:

Rev 6
6And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

^^Anything outside the penny era, how I speak with the bible, goes into ruin.

So squish that ego, and come into the best side. I'm the brain which can teach a whole nation. Though before you hear me you'd keep the ego and rather go into ruin with the whole world. But no sweat off my back if you knew who I am. I can make you screw yourself with your own B.S. ego.

If you aint willing to compact worth into lil things and raise value in many things, then watch yourself.
