DnD Central / Re: Credit union waste of time no income!

Your "payments" buy shares in the institution, RJ. When it doesn't do well, neither do you... Hope for better times!

DnD Central / Re: Everything Trump…

We shall see... But there's always 2024! And Trump's effect upon the Republican Party will not likely wane; specially after four years of Biden/Harris, he'll seem a breath of fresh air -- tweets and all! :)
(I thought it was cute, that Xi accepted the proclamations of the news outlets...as final. Perhaps he doesn't understand that the media here can't be jailed for not toeing the party line?)

I was under the impression that you, RJ, were in favor of the Nanny State... It's Ye Olde Slippery Slope, it is! :) (I recommend settling in with a mug of hot spiced cider and reading Robert Frost's poem "Farmer Brown's Descent"... :) )

DnD Central / Credit union waste of time no income!
Last post by rjhowie -
For years I have been a member of the Glasgow Credit Union as had been a City Council employee. was not so interested in the benefits of loans (people who take a loan pay no extra and it comes out their monthly paying in). For a while it was a great 5% annual sum you got back and in due course started to decline but even routine bank situations had been worse! So last year i increased my annual monthly payment but now found out we are getting damn all back this December!

DnD Central / Alex Salmond situation being well controlled!
Last post by rjhowie -
The Scottish parliament appropriate committee is being stopped from getting access to information over the recent mishandling of a case against the former First Minister Salmond. We taxpayers lost hundreds of thousands in the court matter and he was declared innocent of accusations. Since then the government has blocked internal government actions and the Deputy First Minister continuing to be control freak.  :down:
