Quote of the week
'I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
Thomas Jefferson 1802

Banking is merely organised crime that is better organised than most other crime.
It's so well organised that it is actually legal.

             ...Hi Guys...

This was a story on The Scottish News last night...

A Polish Truck Driver who was delivering 300 new Shopping Trolleys to the new Lidl store in "Shiskin Avenue" in Maryhill, Glasgow actually delivered them to the tiny Hamlet of "Shiskin" on the "Island of Arran", around 30 miles further West...The Trolleys were being brought from Eastern Europe...

This journey involved an extra  Return Ferry Fare of 400.00. which the driver paid...On arrival in "Shiskin" he found only a few houses & not even a village shop...never mind a Supermarket

He later realised his mistake & delivered the Trolleys to "Shiskin Avenue", Maryhill, Glasgow a day or two late...

The shops spokesman said..." We are Opening another new store in Barbados Drive, Glasgow next week...I hope the driver doesn,t get it wrong again"...

Dont you think that the shop got it wrong in the first place by buying their new Trolleys from Eastern Europe & not from a Brittish Manufacturer...Or is there nobody in the UK with the facilities to make these complicated peices of machinery...

Maybe this explains why a Shopping Trolley doesn,t go where you want it to go...It doesn,t understand a Bloody Word that you are screaming at it...

...Best Regards...Norry...
