Can Credit Unions Undo the Damage That Banks Have Done?

Can Credit Unions Undo the Damage that Banks Have Done?

Having learned something about credit unions over the years, and heard Thom Hartmann saying that he had moved all of his money to credit unions while recommending that we all do likewise, I have wanted to start utilizing credit unions for years.

Washington is crafting a truly hideous society.

This from CREDO:

Making public college tuition-free would only cost our country $62.6 billion, according to a recent accounting taken by the U.S. Dept. of Education. That's less than one-10th of this year's $631 billion defense budget.

We can not continue to let those that feel OPPRESSION is the way to gain power over us. It is a feeling that someone feels when they are abused, raped, whipped, taken advantage of, paid low wages, denied healthcare, denied a proper "golden age", and etc.......

Don't let the oppressers win at any level. Its not just WRONG, but in some cases, illegal or in violation of OUR constitution.

Move forward and just say NO to Republicans!

Today's presidential address

Now if you could apply the principles. The present Obama has laid out in his new initiative for securing the constitutional rights of the citizens of United States. If he were to apply these principles to corporations as he would apply them to Al Qaeda. We would not have a Pacific partnership that would undermine the constitutional rights of the citizens of this great country.
