Essentially, it is getting impossible to spend your own money.

First of all, if you're using a credit card, it's not your money. You're borrowing from someone else. Second, WTF? Companies want to get paid, so spending money is only getting easier. NFCs, RFID keypasses, POS readers everywhere, even the vending machines take credit and debit cards now.

Suppose a bunch of thugs (you know who I mean) are in my house, and I need to call the police?

No, I don't. But if you want to call the police, on your and anyone's phone, just dial emergency. That's available on every phone with no login.

If these things are ever sold anywhere, by anyone, it will be the first step in a slippery slope by which the phone grabbers will gut the First Amendment right to call anybody I want, any time.

Whoah, which Constitution are you reading? The one written a hundred+ years before the invention of the phone? You do not have any right to call anyone you want any time you want.

You should be subject to criminal and civil penalties, forfeiture of assets, and having your own ass dragged off in the night to be tortured. Because you've clearly decided to enable to same things to happen to others.

And now you're trying to have someone hauled off to be tortured, so you should be too. Oh shit, I'm doing the same thing!
