I’ve been seriously mulling this over for many months now, the angst caused by the manipulation has me spitting nails! the vital commodities that are so needed to drive a positive market I believe are telling a story - what is it? either there is no demand or there is great demand because of the new green economy, either way something is seriously screwed up!

So why is MSM reporting on cash discounts?

NBC just did a piece on the popularity of paying cash to get a discount. Any clue as to why they are pushing this?
Small businesses are offering discounts because of the cost of processing credit cards- another predatory banking practice. But what does Goliath get out of telling people about it? Normalizing it?
Maybe I’m a bit cynical, but the only thing that comes to mind is that the next set of stories will be about small businesses using cash to avoid taxes (only for billionaires) or to launder crime money. Guess they will need to ban cash discounts “for public protection”. More ways to harass small business.
