It's all about the rents, part one million and eighteen
Oh, and "plastic" includes supermarket "loyalty" cards.* Yes, the goverment is tracking supermarket loyalty cards.
So that's all the thanks you get for enabling the rent seekers! As we keep saying:
1. Get off the bankster's grid, and avoid plastic whenever you can. Why pay the fee, and especially why pay the fee and be surveilled?
2. Get off the corporate food chain, and buy local. Why risk e. coli, all for the sake of eating bio-engineered food-like substances full of weird chemicals, when you can buy locally, eat better, and help build a sustainable infrastructure?
NOTE * I always thought that "loyalty card," as a phrase, was Orwellian. But I didn't think it was this Orwellian.
