No escaping this house of horrors

We belong to a member-only credit union that had a set of rules. A few months ago, "they the powers to be" decided to change the rules about how their place is run.

We the members had to pay $5 to join so they got their funds straight away. How can I help that they cannot manage their funds the correct way?

Not everyone wants a 12 percent loan or to carry their insurance or even finance a vehicle with them. Now my membership is diminished, but I am stuck until my IRA CD comes due, which is not until December 2012. In the meantime, I have to jump through their hoops, which is very upsetting. Mind you I have been a loyal member for more than 25 years.
