Visa is encouraging food related small businesses to stop accepting cash for payments and to instead accept only credit cards. Visa is calling the program “The Visa Cashless Challenge” and is willing to pay qualified small businesses up to $10,000 to make the switch.
Visa will be awarding up to $500,000 to 50 eligible US-based small business food service owners who commit to joining the 100% cashless quest.
I think this is a great idea. The sooner we move away from physical currency, the better.
The concept of physical currency is antiquated. Cash money is inefficient, dirty, impracticable, and prone to fraud. Cash is the preferred currency for criminal activity. Cash is used by both the terrorist and the drug dealer. Cash is used by people who don’t want to pay taxes or child support. Cash is king for all sorts of criminal enterprises.
Cash money is filthy. It’s rife with all sorts of germs and deadly pathogens. The herpes virus is most often passed from one person to another, not from toilet seats, but from cash. When someone tells me they have herpes, I assume they bought something with cash.
Donald Trump would not feel the need to build a gigantic wall between Canada and the United States if we had a cashless economy.
I think we’d be a much better country if we moved to a cashless society. As an added side benefit, a cashless economy will also make things easier during the End Times. In the Bible, it tells use that during the end of the world, we will all have to take the Mark of the Beast. If we don’t, we will not be able to buy or sell anything. According to the Bible, even slaves will need to have this mark. Once we switch to a cashless economy, we’ll pay for our purchases using the number on our right hand or our forehead.
Moving to a cashless economy just makes since.
