    Ponder this for me if you will. IF social liberal goverment is such a great thing, why then was NOT our country founded on those principles and if it were, where would we be today?

    Success in this world is always punished, as those that sit around and achieve nothing always want to punish and persecute those who strive to excel. With obama in office something like the Cyprus situation could easily come to America. obama has no respect for success either.

    obmama is a professional campaigner and doesn't believe that all your hard work matters, he believes that you didn't build that.

    Umm, we already had this situation with Citibank, Bank of America, Chase etc. No deposits were touched and Obama didn't even use taxpayers money , but Bush did. Granted they were all paid back

    I have little or no confidence in our congress to do anything other than steal what is not theirs. They are unable to pass any laws that actually do anything other than please their special interest groups or oppress minorities. When things get bad they will seize assets but only from individuals they deem enemies of the state not themselves or their rich friends.

    Hard for the us congress to seize the wealthy's cash when it's all in switzerland and the caymen's.. They'll be spared should it ever happen here.

    @frigginhell now you understand why it's in Switzerland and the caymans. People naturally want to keep their money safe. Duh.

    @EzraBlade How would you rate the Caymans as being "safe"? Cyprus is the russians cayman and this happened. I had some money offshore that I pulled instantly once I heard of this. Money is not safe anywhere today. I'll just keep it on a paper chase for a while until we see how the dust settles.

    This is the type of shit that stems from a social liberal mind set. When someone is too stupid or too lazy to do for themselves they steal from those who work for a living.Sound familiar?

    This already happened in the US before. The Progressive-Liberal-Democrat President FDR back in 1933 signed Executive Order 6102 and had the IRS steal peoples 'Gold'. ____ The difference between Cyprus and the US is that the US can print/digitise all the money it wants to and Cyprus can't. The US will just print the Dollar away and make what you have in the bank less valuable (reduce your money's purchasing power) a.k.a. Hyper-Inflation.

    Cyprus is nothing more than a drill for the banks. They're all intertwined throughout the world. They want to see if the public outrage turns violent and how violent and who are players they might not have calculated their response well enough. They're doing it on an island so they can control the people better. This is a drill. Coming soon to a bank near you. When the ultra rich can't figure another way to legislate their corruption, they'll simply take your money.

    As long as a-holes Like Obama keep ruining our country, it's more than likely to happen. Actually, it already has. Obama taxes you when you sell your house now. That's a tax on assets, not earnings, just like what's happening in Cyrus. Only difference is, Obama is a sneak and a bastard and doesn't bother explaining what he's really doing. He's just a sneak and a freak taking advantage for the gullible, stupid, masses. we now have for American citizens. It's embarrassing to associate with the Obamaphone crowd. I think I'll go back to the old country and die where my real family is from. To hell with America now. We are no different than the European saps anymore. Screwed by our own President.
    Ain't that sumpin'?

    The only difference between this and the American bailouts are semantic. One takes a percentage of everyone's "money" and gives it to the banks. The other takes a percentage of the value of everyone's "money" and gives it to the banks.

    Anyone that reads my posts probably knows that I'm no fan of the wealthy. Most of them equate success with wealth. They tend to be bums acquiring their wealth through the work of other people. Seizing bank deposits from anyone, even wealthy bums, is theft and should be punished. If there were any justice in this situation, our government would break relations with the European Union over the seizure of the monies in those bank accounts.

    That last sentence is of great interest (no pun intended). Just how IS the U.S. responding to all this? I haven't heard a peep.

    Sure it can happen here. Why do think we've had nothing but gov't. infringement from Bush,Sr.- Clinton - Bush, Jr. & now BO ? They have the same final plan & middle class , working Americans are their target . When you see billionaires dumping stock, like now - the shyt is bout ready to hit the fan. Somebody has to pay for obummacare & the illegal alien invasion life support meant to water down the American poulation to achieve that 3rd world status these 'World Elitist Lords ' are aiming for .

    There's a precedent in President Roosevelt confiscating Americans' gold in the 1930s. We keep printing paper money to cover deficits and make interest payments just like post World War I Germans did. That resulted in a nightmarish inflation rate for Germany.
    The action and reaction rules still apply even if we're operating under a different language.

    Cyprus Bailout Is on Again, Funded by Asset Seizure
    Obama and the liberals push for this in America.
    Its called fundemental change, re distribution of wealth.
    This is what liberals call fairness

    @Vance1 - My head fits nicely right here on my shoulders, as always. I never said it couldn't happen, I asked you to name me one political leader who is advocating for it. I just don't understand people like you, who seem to see something to fear in every topic. I don't "just expect" anything, Vance. I pay attention, I plan, and I work my plan.

    @Denizen_Kate
    YES Kate... I fear, I fear for my grand children, they are going to get passed on a very shitty American life.
    Because people like you wanted things.
    People like you pushed a bankrupting gay moral less agenda.
    Yes Kate, I do blame people like you, who always want more laws and more government interaction.
    Rather than self reliance and living within your means.

    @Vance1 - How would you know whether or not I was self-reliant? How would you know whether or not I lived within my means? What makes you think I want more laws, more government?(I'm actually more Libertarian in that regard.)

    What makes you think you know the least thing about me? Your assumptions are both arrogant and rude, Vance. Have I insulted you? I thought I was being quite civil.

    All the more reason to get your money out of banks and keep cash, gold, or keep your money in overseas banks that won't submit to invasion of privacy or funds. Used to be that was only for the rich or the crime lords, but now even everyday people are realizing the benefits.

    It already happened in the US by President Roosevelt (FDR) when he signed Executive Order 6102 on April 5, 1933. FDR had the IRS confiscate 'Gold' from US Citizens. ___ Do I believe the US fed. gov't will take Federal Reserve Notes/digital Federal Reserve Notes from peoples bank accounts.....NO. Unlike Cyprus, the US can have the Federal Reserve just print/digitise more money and that in itself will devalue whatever money/Fed Notes you have saved in the bank. It is just as good as stealing though.

    What is that chance that any of these people will have a cent in the Cyprus banks every again? This is a short turm fix that will end their banking system.
