Government confiscation of private property is government confiscation of private property.Hey carol, I looked up Cyprus on the internet and it turns out we were both wrong. Yeah, it's in the Meditterranean. Remember I told you that's where Sicily was?
Turns out it one of those tax shelters where capitalists, Russians this time, hide their money from homeland taxes and the banks that hold the money, well that's the only industry they got over there, Cyprus is just a shelter for those eight "banks" so when the government had to pay its bills they kinda had to raise the money from the banks. I guess they can't complain too much, huh?
I mean it's like Sicily in that it's run by the families but in this case the families are all bankers. Ha ha it just occurred to me what they mean by family values.
I wouldn't worry if I was you, honey, it looks to me like they're just going after the real crooks so your $3,200 ought to be safe there. But I'm only guessing?
When the US government confiscates your retirement account to "protect" it, the game will already be over.
