Things that piss my mother off

Today we have a special feature. Since she does not have her own blog and doesn't have enough to say to have a blog (her words, not mine), my mother decided she could occasionally rant here. So, from time to time I will now have special input from my mom. Here you have it.....Things that piss my mother off.

The United States Mint, financed by our tax dollars, spends millions of our tax dollars each year on television advertisements to get us to buy coins that the manufacture of is paid for by our tax dollars. People who collect coins do not need to be told how to get them. They already know. This is a flagrant waste of our taxes.

Honestly I thought this would be longer.....

Google found me the U.S. Mint's 2002 Annual Report. It made just over $33 million on "collectible" coin sales that year.

Not to rain on your parade SM, but it saved you a few tax dollars. I'm trying to figure out how to end this on a humorous note, and am failing.

That's very interesting. That is not what the US Mint told me when I called them. Perhaps I was asking the wrong questions of the wrong person. Thanks for the input.
