Who is Kim Kardashian?
Parents who care, run for the hills, the world is coming to an end-righteous people all over the country are aghast!
Kim Kardashian has released a pre-paid debit card. It will ruin our children, as they use it to buy the latest iTunes Kardashian show, for their iPad.
I will have to admit, when a friend sent me this link, I had to google Kim Kardashian.
I had “heard” the name, and seen references in the media. But I had no idea of why she was famous.
KK, like most of the other celebrities/actors/drunks, and addicts that make up our current pop culture seems to be ubiquitous-once my Google search returned.
But I refuse to support their habits by watching their shows, or buying the mag/rags that worship them-like conjoined twins, sharing a heart. One couldn’t live without the other.
I live a reality show, why would I watch one….
But I learned a long time ago, you can’t fight or alter pop culture.
No it’s not fair, that a 90lb blond, drunk, drug addict makes millions just by managing to dress, (without panties) and go to a club.
And a 130lb blond nurse is doing CPR on a 1 1/2 lb preemie, trying desperately to save the life of a precious newborn, and gets paid less than the pop queen makes in a 15 sec commercial.
If you dwell on these issues, you will want to crawl into bed, pull over the covers, and cry!
I refuse to give in to those tendencies…
So I have my quiet protest-and refuse to support the celebrity driven culture-It does make finding a movie difficult. Finding quality actors that haven’t sipped the kool-aid of their own exploded ego is a challenge-but I try.
My other 5 jobs keep me busy anyway!
Whew, now I feel better-back to the subject at hand:
- It is a pre-paid debit card-so it has a self-imposed spending limit
- It is without overdraft fees
- You can get it with no credit check
- You can load the card with a call-and get text/sms messages or alerts-maybe good for parents who want to know if spending limits are breached.
- Kim’s Kleavage
- Supports a celebrity culture
- May encourage spending-showing off Kim’s Kleavage to your fellow hormonally challenged peeps-while you swipe your card!
- But most important-the damn thing is 10 bucks a month!
If you buy this card for your kid, and you limit their spending to 100 bucks a month-then you are paying 10% a month in fees-outrageous considering most checking accounts come with a free debit card.
Now that is something worth celebrating! Free checking ROCKS!
Have your purchased a pre-paid or debit kard for you teens?
Does it have a picture of a partially klad celebrity on it?
Do you think a kard kulture for your kids is a good thing?
