I am downing a couple of beers...hearing kids play basketball in the villa complex court. I hear a knock a minute ago and go to the door. I pause the movie "Superman vs. Doomsday"...better one than tv or the movie version.....Anyways back to the opening the door, and no one is there; I do see the kids playing (15-4) and as I turn to go back into my apartment, I hear and than see a cute, and danm cute 5-6years old girl come back up the stairs, and she asks me if I have 5 Quaters.

No joke. first thing that comes to my mind is what cash I have in the home. between the 4 adults who live here and the three that are here in the home have. And you know what I know for a fact all, as I am the eldest; metriarch(so to speak), we do not carry any cash. Mostly we have about a buck in under the sofas, car seats and etc....of change....most at a good day would be about $10.00 dollars. Why?

It's simple really, we have instant access to our money through Debit cards/Credit cards. which kind of remaines both if the bank gives you the card linked to your cash account. So I figure why even carry cash?...Except if you travel outside "safe countries". 

I realized that 10-15 yrs ago the walkie-talkie that captaine Kirk had was the future, as the cell phones came out. You probably realized I am a sci-fic fan with a little horror thrown in. And what the imediate future calls for is no real money(paper) to carry around but a money(card) every one has access through in some time with thumb verification, and the rich live dna etc., verification.

Which companies are hands down, into this future? Do you do the same? Which companies are on this path.... or will be?

Cash is still important for all the purchases and services we make that we prefer are not recorded. Whether it's buying drugs, prostitutes, paying the babysitter, holding a garage sale or hiring illegal workers, the need for cash is vital to our underground economy (aka Black Market). How terrible life would be if we only had debit cards!

As a Libertarian, I can tell you, if I may paraphrase a great American, Charlton Heston, "You can take my money, if you can pry it from my cold, dead hand."

V or MA.  These are not credit cards, but debit cards (basically replacing carrying cash).  V just came out with nice earnings too,
