If credit card ads were honest

From the good people at "Cracked" the reality of the credit card business explained.

Ever heard of "digital money"? If you've got and use credit cards you're already digital.

Real cash? The powers that be would like to eliminate it entirely and go 100% digital.


Here are three bogus reasons:

1. "Only bad people use cash"
2. "It's good for the environment"
3. "It's more convenient"

Here's the truth:

Credit cards are optional.

Once the entire population is forced to go 100% digital it will become even easier to enslave the entire population.
