Hey guys, This is my first post. I thought I would start out with a question/debate. I have always used a wallet, but recently started carrying a money clip. I was just wondering what other mens…Continue
"I use a money clip when I'm just bumming around on my treadly or motorbike , never more than fifty bucks and my licence , but when I go to work , shopping or out where I could buy a meal ill take a small leather front pocket wallet with a…"
"Not much use for a money clip here as we don't have those nice 1 dollar bills. Money get's back to you in heavy chunky coins, so you need to keep those somewhere. It does have the advantage of being able to keep you house/bicycle key in…"
"I use a bifold with an ID window on the outside so I don't have to open it up just to buy drinks, ammo, etc., and keep it in my front pocket. I use cash as my primary means of transaction, but for no particular reason, money clips just never…"
"I tend to carry both. My wallet is a bifold zippered from Alpine Swiss, and it holds ID, credit/debit cards, insurance cards, voter registration card, CPR cert card, duct tape card(old debit card wrapped in 3 feet of duct tape, JiC), Private…"
"Hello and welcome to the forum! I, like you, started carrying a money clip this year and I really like the freedom from the large tri-fold that I carried for years. I carry the "Smart Money Clip" by Storus. It is designed to hold credit…"
"I carry a wallet, no more than $20 in cash, however.
Wallet goes in back right pocket. I'd try a money clip or a front pocket wallet, but I'm kinda OCD with my pockets. I've got my phone in right side pocket, my Zune in my left side…"
"WHERE do you carry the case tho? I use a wallt becasue when I sit on it, it doesn't dent. Can't use a money clip cuz it's inconvenient to carry plastic. Personally, I carry very little cash. Mostly just "iou's"."
"There are still a few cash only restaurants around our area, for one example. For another, there are hundreds of hot dog stands, kebab stands, produce stands, farmers' markets, and the like scattered all over Manhattan, the majority of which…"
"Cash is a liability, that’s why a lot of business, apartment complexes, daycares, the Apple Store until recently, wouldn’t take cash. If banks and convenient stores didn’t have cash they wouldn’t get robbed. If you loose cash…"
"One of my friends carries one of those money clip and every time he takes it out I tell him that carrying one of those is so pimp (with style, not in a bad way)... I think it's really cool but personally I wouldn't carry those, I'll…"
"I've always carried a wallet, but it's been slowly decreasing in size as the years go by. I used to carry so much junk around, a la George Costanza. I realized that I was taking it out of my pocket all the time, for reasons of comfort.…"

"And that's totally understandable. But that doesn't mean you may not be subject to social repercussions, even if misguided. Buck the system all you want, but it is much more likely to hurt you, than the system. I choose to pick my battles…"
"It has to do with how it is used.
A non-jewish person saying "Oh, you know Peter, he's a real Jew..." often carries some negative connotations. The way the term has been used by some, nearly puts in in a pejorative category -…"
"Censoring, in some cases, is a strong word. But it is a strong word when it applies to political correctness as well. At the least, those fixated on being PC will shut you out or label you for using the word that isn't "in," or…"
""if there needs to be a change, the leaders of the change should be members of the group. For self-appointed guardians to decide for other ethnicities what they should be offended by seems pretty demeaning."Of course. By the same token,…"
"Although my main concern with PC is the other uses of it as discussed above, there's an ugly underside to the terminology for groups, that we need to be aware of. Maybe we already are. Let's see.
Consider a few groups that have PC updates…"
"If PC is to be defined _only_ as using language to be kind to minority groups, then it's not conflation to link kind language to minority groups to other uses to influence political opinion. Let's just be sure we don't limit it to…"
