    Computers know too much about me already. I stopped using my CVS, Staples etc. cards last year. This is only the latest “thing” of the 21st century, into which I am being dragged kicking & screaming all the way!
    I’ll stay with cash.

    Excellent Ted Rall today! I’ll stay with cash were ever I can when I don’t want my purchases tracked.

    I’ve never been afraid of my government, but walking in to a Walmart is pretty creepy with all of those cameras looking down at me. The government hides them, mostly.

    The government hides it because they want you to think they aren’t watching when they are so you can be caught. Walmart puts them out in the open so you know they are there and hopefully won’t do anything you don’t want to get caught at.

    The trouble is that, as long as there is cash, some people will engage in illegal purchases (like the traitors who buy Mr Rall’s books). The government must ban cash completely, and make sure there is no way to buy anything except by card or phone (we also have to get rid of the cheap burner phones). That way, when someone tries to buy anything the government has banned, the computer will automatically reject the transaction and put out an APB on the criminal.

    I love standing in line at Walgreen when the person in front of me goes through the sale paper to try to find one of their purchases, then they can’t find their rewards card, then it takes three tries to get a debit card that works, and then they have a five minute conversation with the clerk. I have a rewards card but pay cash and the whole thing if over with it about a minute. Sometimes I get lucky and the woman customer uses cash but then it takes a couple of minutes for the to paw through their purse for exact change.

    Ah, “modern” life. At time it sucks.

    So-called ‘conservatives’ are incensed, just incensed about government spying.


    And they are perfectly comfortable with giant multinational (patriotic) corporations spying on citizens and sharing information with each other.


    But, of course, It’s OKAY If A Republican Does It.

    Other than Google who did get punished for taking pictures for something everyone loves to use for free anyway, name a corporation who has forced you to use their product?

    I just don’t want corporations assembling a dossier on me!

    One of the best things about living in Mexico is that it is a cash economy!

    What bothers me are those who squawked when Bush did it, yet silent when Obama not only continues, but gets more deadly with drone based LRKs.

    i got my first credit card 51 years ago. never had a problem, ever, until 2 years ago: first it was somebody charging me monthly for a single purchase; then our local supermarket was hacked, several unauthorized charges; home depot, target, same problem; then, the latest, we get a recurring charge from some place in florida we never heard of. the credit card started out so well, now bit coin wants you to use ephemeral money. the end is very near.

    Thanks for supporting my point.

    BTW, for example, I guess I’m not forced to buy water from my water company. I could buy bottled water. Taking showers might become fairly expensive, but I guess I’m not forced.

    And I’m not forced to buy gasoline, unless I want to drive somewhere.
