    Citi does not have a monopoly on your means of purchase or credit.

    Being the elected representative of a bunch of dumbass ghetto Jungle Monkeys doesn't take intelligence. It take a ghetto dialect and a promise to get them more welfare. She does that well.

    However, normal to most humans she is dumber than a door knob.

    Would you like for me to post some of her intellectual quotes?

    Well, play it out for me.

    Because where I see this ending is you tell Citi to fuck off, and go get credit elsewhere.

    You say we can never fix the prejudice problem. Then we will always have to have PA laws, I guess.
    The government doesn't stay up nights thinking up ways to take your freedom. There are reasons for PA laws. In this country, based on the principle that all men are created equal, we have established laws to give everyone a fair chance. If someone doesn't have the "freedom" to deny another person their rights due to their race, religion or something else, I say tough shit. The laws don't say you can't personally be a bigoted asshole, you just can't practice it when you are offering services to the general public. Fighting discrimination is not an evil thing, Bootney. I'll never believe that.

    Go get a different credit card. How simple is that? That is what Bootney would say--let the market decide.

    1. The government has an agenda to eliminate cash so that all transactions can be traced.
    2. Digital financial services are an oligopoly with a great deal of regulatory capture.
    3. Politicians will pressure the financial services firms to carry out their political agendas (i.e., gun control).
    4. Citi will not be the only one to censor commerce - just like the big surveillance media have moved in lockstep to censor conservatives.
    5. This will end up being very similar to China's social credit system.
