§ Two Strikes You're Out: The "Debit-card" Rule

{Rule #1 « Rule #2 » Rule #3}

§ ≡ One of an ongoing series of posts in which I promulgate, in my not-so-humble opinion, sensible rules for a society gone mad. Feel free to offer constructive dissenting opinions. But be advised: if your opinions aren't sensible, it's two strikes for you, and you're out of the gene pool.

If I only had some charisma I could rule this world-gone-mad at least as well as any community organizer. Quite possibly better. At least my legal system would be transparent, simple, and swift: if you are a stupid f*ck and do something that doesn't make any sense, your first offense earns you a reasonable penalty that fits your transgression. Your second offense earns you a one-way ticket out of the gene pool. No exceptions.

Rule #2: The "Debit-card" Rule

So you traded in your credit card for a debit card. Whoop-ti-do! You think this entitles you to bounce checks with impunity? Maybe in The Obama's world it does. But here on planet earth, we still don't get free lunch or free credit. You charge something with your spiffy debit card but your not-so-spiffy checking account can't cover it, your handy credit company will charge you whatever the f*ck they feel like charging you, provided such penalties are specified in the agreement you signed when you got your debit card.

Oh, you neglected to read your credit agreement before you signed it? Tough shit for you. Read the next one before you sign.

You say you can't read? Tough shit for you. Don't sign any agreements before you learn to read.

It's not fair? Don't make me laugh. Life is not a bowl of cherries that have been pitted by your Mom. Get a grip.

Penalty for first offense: A hefty fine for being an irresponsible f*ck.

Penalty for second offense, or whining about the first: A one-way ticket out of the gene pool. No exceptions.
