It cost 1.7 cents to make a penny this year, and 8 cents to make a nickel
By Christopher Ingraham Washington Post


In essence, we're paying $100 million a year to make coins that nobody wants, so that people can take them to a Coinstar kiosk and pay again to get rid of them. Capitalism!

The U.S. Mint has some good news and bad news in its latest biennial report to Congress. The good news is that we're wasting less money on pennies and nickels. The bad news is we're still wasting money on pennies and nickels.

Production costs for all four major coin types fell in fiscal year 2014 due to the falling price of copper, one of the primary metals used to make coins. The Mint estimates it saved $29 million this year compared to last year on account of lower copper prices.

But it continues to lose money on pennies and nickels. It now costs $1.62 to make a dollar's worth of nickels, and $1.66 to make a dollar's worth of pennies. By contrast it costs only 36 cents to make a do…

Just Gimme Money

Here at the Underground we try to give you a different perspective. A different world view than you can find anywhere else. Usually this means that we are exposing some huge horrible crime that's taking place but being ignored. This article is not about any crime being committed by my own government. Here at the Underground we see the whole world differently from the rest of you. Here's the Undergrounds version of an old Beatles song. (Don't tell Google I'm doing this, or well you already know what happened to YouTube after Google got ahold of them.)

Your pussy gives me a thrill, why not take it out on the corner and pay my bills! Now gimme money. That's what I want! That's what I want! And if you ain't made no money bitch, stay out on the track and don't come back. Where's my money bitch? That's what I want! Put on your shortest skirt and your highest heels you're goin out tonight and every night. Now…

FBI Helps Shut Down Seattle Sex-Work Review Board

FBI Helps Shut Down Seattle Sex-Work Review Board
By  Reason


On Wednesday, visitors to TheReviewBoard.net were greeted not by the site's usual array of forums but a series of law-enforcement badge photos displayed prominently above the following message: "This website has been seized pursuant to a Promoting Prostitution investigation conducted by the King County Sheriff's Office, the Bellevue Police Department, the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation."

The site, which The Stranger's Sydney Brownstone describes as "an online mainstay of the Seattle sex industry," previously provided a space for clients and sex workers to dish on one another in the interest of lust and safety, as well offered a free-advertising venue. But like so many tools that make life easier for those in the sex trade, this one runs afoul of our government's new mission to "end demand" for prostitut…

the Truth about Russian hacks

the Truth about Russian hacks
By Christopher R Rice

Intelligent citizens know that these leaks were not "hacked" by Russia, they were delivered via a disgruntled DNC employee who had access to all of this information. This is a no-brainer and it is obvious that our government thinks that we have no brains.

With the evidence of hacking, that makes Trump's presidency as legitimate as Sarah Palin's grandchildren.

Trump was the one who kept saying the election was rigged before November...like the kid who stole the cokies and then tells mom it looks like someone stole the cookies.

Middle east meddling, media meddling, corporate meddling, Russian meddling, I must have meddled by casting my vote and voicing my opinion. It was all meddling and some meddled better than others. In the end only one person gets elected just as it has been in the past. Dem's are very sore losers exhibiting all of the character flaws that they accuse others of having and instigating civil unrest…
