As I was paying our credit card bill online today I noticed that it is called the “Chase Freedom Card.” How ironic is that? This is the card that has a balance that goes up when you make the minimum payment (I know all cards are that way). Really it is a way we enslave ourselves. Using the freedom to get what we can’t afford only to be bound to our debt for years. That “freedom” is what we’re trying to work our way out of now.
I think the “Chase Slavery Card” would fit better, but I suppose it wouldn’t be quite as appealing though.
