  •  I used my Credit Union card . . . (11+ / 0-)

    so I'm making monthly payments with interest on a lawnmower and etc.

    But it's money that's never going to leave my community. It gets loaned out like it was to me, and people build with it, go to school with it, buy houses with it, all right around here.

    If I'd used a Citibank or BankAmerica or Wells Fargo card the money would have instantly been siphoned out of my community to go cut down jungle to build more palm oil plantations in Sumatra.

    Somehow I don't mind the vig when it gets spent in my town.
