The Unaccountable Nature of Credit Cards and Consumerism in America

American Expressed, by TSN_

Why credit debt works– it’s not your money, it’s not your loss. These cards and card holders aren’t accountable.

If you were losing 19.24 % on your investment, you’d most likely change. Perhaps we don’t think of it like that.

The connection between your money and your credit card is non-existent because their is no symbolic transaction:

Give your money, get something. You get their product. They keep your money;

With a credit card it’s like a pacifier. Give your card, get it back. Get their product, get your card back. There is a safety.

Never lose physically, tangibly.

A deception. People can’t connect the interest lost. They don’t see it as theirs. Because it’s the cards’ rate, not theirs.

Perhaps that is why there exists an Unaccountable Nature of Credit Cards and Consumerism in America.

BREAKING NEWS: Trump Draws With Sharpie on a Map

Trump embattled with Dorian

09/07/19 America, USA–The most important news in the world today is between a president, a Sharpie, and the guestimated path of a storm, now forever infamous, on a map.

That means there isn’t much else to report on in the world today. Trump used a Sharpie to draw on a map to prove his point on a forecasted storm path. That is worth the headline.

And it doesn’t stop there. Trump memes have turned to Sharpiegate all over social media. An even more important event than Hurricane Dorian itself, it seems, but not really.

Trump, a Sharpie, and a storm on a Ross Perotesque map, front and center. That’s the most important information to read about between the prescription pill ads and the ads promoting mass consumerism.

We live in a wonderful world. When the aforementioned is the worst news. The news media can disparage and distract and still run ads.
