Digital Currency - Mark of the Beast - End of the Republic
Had a layover at JFK in New Jersey earlier this year. As I usually do, I went to a bar to grab a quick beer before the next flight.
Was presented with the only option to purchase was to download the bar's application to my phone to place the order. OK, not convenient, but I guess I could go along with it. Before I downloaded, I asked a waitress if I could pay with cash or a CC. She said no, I had to pay through the app.
I told her I never put any financial or banking information on my phone, so how can I buy a beer. She said I could order and then pay online with a CC. When I mentioned again that I never put financial or banking information on my phone, which would include a CC, she (30ish?) gave me a blank look as I got up and left.
Had the same thing happen to me Sunday at MSP.
Sadly I enjoy a beer between flights, and as this country goes down the Orwellian path, I will have fewer and fewer, I guess.
Not a big fan of boycotts, but if you do not like the slippery slope we are on towards a US Federal Government Digital Currency, I would suggest no buying from these types of places, and telling the people there why you are refusing your patronage.
