So, when did Amazon or Ebay start accepting cash?
Try renting a car with a debit card let alone cash.
Try getting a hotel room with cash.
Cash may be required to be accepted for all debts. However, they
can just prevent you from incurring the debt if all you have is cash.
Right to refuse service and all that.

Really? If you don't travel outside of the country you have no need of
passport. Getting a passport requires many weeks.
The only reason I have a passport is for I-9 (employment eligibility)
when I start a new job. The passport substitutes for the driver's
security card combo. In addition, nobody recognizes it as ID in spite
fact that it is illegal not to. Try using it in a bar sometime; 2 in 3
will reject it.
San Diego may be better than that given the amount of military folks.
