ALWAYS use American Express June 20, 2007

American Express won a customer for life in me.  I only use American Express now for any purchase where it is accepted.  The reason?  Outstanding customer service.  By excellent customer service I don’t mean nice CSRs.  They really saved my bacon when I was traveling and SAS lost my bag which they had charged me $235(US) in overweight fees, and refused to refund.  Because SAS was being completely customer hostile and refusing me any help at all I called AMEX travel services and told them my information.  They called all the airlines for me, and ultimately found my bag saving my trip.  I was blown away by the ease of using this service and the professionalism of the representative who really went above and beyond and took down all my information comprehensively and politely.  If I had used another card I wouldn’t have had this help when I needed it most and not have enjoyed my very expensive vacation.  Use Amex for everything, they stand behind their customers.

bling-blingI travel Internationally a lot. You know what I see out there? Not the hate you would expect listening to FOX news. The world loves American culture. Not the Disney kind either, hardcore gagsta’ rap. It’s true, everywhere I go, American “hip-hop” is the music of choice. Here’s the part I don’t get, this is true even in countries where they don’t speak English. They still like something about the “tone” of American hip-hop, even if they can’t understand the words. It’s funny listening to really hardcore gangsta rap, you know like “fuck you, mutherfuckers,” in an upscale bar. We won the world’s hearts once with Jazz, now it’s our turn again. We have to take advantage of this opportunity, this may very well be our chance at world peace.

If we put 50 Cent in the UN instead of Bolton, do you think anyone would fuck with our resolutions? I think not, who wants to have a cap in their ass? So I say crank up the export machine to high. Lets get our most precious natural resource back in the studio. Snoop would make a great ambassador, hell he started his own language. Instead of bombs lets drop “the bomb.”

Instead of sending troops, lets send Suge Knight and his posse, at least our rap stars have the latest in body armour.

After the world embraces us for our cultural heritage I predict the economy will improve, after all, America is the only place to buy real bling-bling. I can really visualize a ghetto fabulous world, can you?
