Banks Threaten To Charge You For Saving Money

Banks Threaten To Charge You For Saving Money

Commented Nov 26, 2013 at 06:05:51 in Business

“Actually, two words, but two words of wisdom. Already did this. Glad I did. Savings rates are higher (just a smidgen, but still...), loan rates are lower and fewer fees. Still have some money in a regular bank, but that's also being moved to the credit union.
Bit of history -- the first credit union in the U.S. was formed in Manchester, N.H., by members of a working-class Roman Catholic parish who pooled their funds to help each other out because regular banks wouldn't invest in their community.
St. Mary's Credit Union is still going strong today, using money contributed by members to help other members buy vehicles, houses and start businesses.”

“Well, we're half the population, so that fact alone means there's a large pool of qualified (or, if you prefer, just-as-qualified) women who can lead large, complex organizations.
Not every male CEO is a shining example of smart corporate governance. It's just that way more men than women get a chance at the top job.”

“True. There are good women who can be great leaders but they are not the ones who are spewing their insignificance to the media and to the people it seems. The only women you see mouthing a lot of junk are the women you don't want to see in your white house I hope.”

“Is anyone really surprised? Maria has been Wall Street's biggest cheerleader as a "journalist" for CNBC -- which, in itself is nothing more than the propaganda arm for banksters and fraudsters.
Definitely a lateral move for her, from one bogus "news" operation to another.”

“Maybe that stupid and useless $24 billion shutdown -- that caused some private businesses to fold and cost some people their jobs -- that Cruz was so gung-ho for (remember his "filibuster" on the Senate floor, reading Dr. Seuss?) has something to do with it.
He's lying through his teeth when he said he didn't support the shutdown. He conspired with TP congress members to pull it off.”

“I actually watched the CBS report when it aired Oct. 27. About halfway through, when Davies was recounting his heroic scaling of the 12-foot embassy wall while carrying a rifle, then knocking out a terrorist with the rifle butt, I turned to my significant other and said, "This is BS."
See, CBS, coulda fixed it for ya.”

“How come you can spell "legalization" and can't spell "their" or use proper grammar? Are you deliberately dumbing-down your post, so you can fit in with your pals?”

Vicki Gunvalson Blames 'Real Housewives' For Her Divorce

Commented Nov 5, 2013 at 12:02:15 in Divorce

“I admit, I used to watch RHOC when it first came on TV. I used to cringe at how Vicki treated her husband and marvel at his patience. They renewed their vows, on one show, and I was struck by how genuinely Don seemed affected by that. I thought he really loved her.
I stopped watching (couldn't take anymore of that crowd) and then learned the marriage broke up. Can't say I'm surprised. I felt bad for Don. I thought it would take Vicki a while to discover that she tossed a good man aside.
Too late, Vicki. I'll bet some other lucky woman is thanking her lucky stars that you kicked him to the curb.”

“Where in my post did you read any criticism of Snowden?
I merely pointed out that the NSA failed to keep control of the massive data it is collecting, period. Outsourcing such vital and sensitive information to a contractor with lax controls puts that information at risk. To me, this proves that the "spymasters" aren't very good at their jobs.
Am I glad Snowden decided to let Americans know what our government is doing? Sure. Now we have to decide how we're going to handle this situation, going forward.”

“Actually "Snowden incidents" happen when our uber spymaster outsource their work to private contractors greedy for profits who then hire people without sufficiently vetting them first -- and then letting them handle top-secret material.”

“However it is oh so lucky for American citizens to get the true lowdown on the Military's NSA and the most illegal programs such as PRISM.

Edward Snowden is a true America hero and millions agree, some even Congressmen.
