LOL...look on the bright side, at least bonus spending on "questionable" internet purchases has been excluded, in case Amex wants to offer a new VR (Vice Rewards) Card.

Clearly, this card appears to be specifically targetted towards the male demographic.

Would you feel differently if the card offered a high CL, 0% APR for 24 months, 0% balance transfer fee, and $150 statement credit after first...er..."qualified" purchase?

Well I do not do any of those things and I am okay with life. To others, it may seem lame to read a novel/encyclopedia or watch nature, instead of getting drunk or something. I, however, like it very much. Anyway, just saying that you do not need to like the things you mentioned to have a happy life. You are more than welcome to participate in those things, though.

Maybe an ATF co-branded card.  Like 1% on basic purchases and you get to pick two bonus categories: Alcohol, tobacco or firearms.    Your AF could be an NRA membership renewal and your anniversary bonus is a 100 rounds of your choice, a BevMo card or Joe Camel bucks.

I don't smoke, very rarely do indulge in alcohol, guns on the other hand are a hobby of mine....  i also like to study history.... my point was that if you go around hating on smokers, drinkers, and shooters you have bigger problems and most likely hate life in general

Well, unless we repeal the 2nd Amendment, your hobby is safe.  

 

Interestingly enough--keeping in theme with this thread--the only Amendment ever repealed was the one prohibiting alcohol.
