Wealthy Russians stand to lose billions of euros in Cypriot banks under draconian terms being hammered out on Sunday night in Brussels to prevent the Mediterranean tax haven becoming the first country forced out of the single currency.

Negotiations got underway amid a hardening of the stance held by the International Monetary Fund and Germany, who insisted that depositors must take the hit for bailing out the eurozone's latest crisis economy.

There were signs of panic in Cyprus as a €100 (£85) limit was imposed on ATM withdrawals, with more stringent capital controls to follow if a deal is reached.

The European Central Bank has threatened to cut off funds propping up Cypriot banks on Monday, precipitating the island's exit from the euro if agreement was not reached on Sunday night at the emergency meeting between eurozone finance ministers, the president of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades, and the bailout troika of the IMF, European Commission and the ECB.

Mayor Bloomerberg Takes His Guns to Gun-free Bermuda
Do as Hizzoner says, Not as He Does
HAMILTON, Bermuda — At Greg’s Steakhouse, the power lunch spot on this sun-soaked island, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg is such a regular that he has his own booth, with a view of the Parliament building. The waiters have memorized his order: coffee-rubbed New York strip steak.
The cabdrivers in Bermuda know Mr. Bloomberg by sight and jockey for a chance to drive him around town.(The billionaire mayor, they say, tips well.)
Members of the Mid Ocean golf club, where he plays up to two rounds a day, can rattle off the strengths and weaknesses of his game.
“He’s a bit slow, to be honest,” said one of them, who found himself stuck behind the mayor’s foursome recently.
Mr. Bloomberg, who owns a waterfront estate here, has walled off his life in Bermuda from voters in New York, arguing it is none of their business. He steadfastly refuses to say when he is on the island, and to blindfold prying eyes, he has blocked aviation Web sites from making public the movements of his private planes.
The mayor also takes along a police detail when he travels, flying two officers on his private plane and paying as much as $400 a night to put them up at a hotel near his house; the city pays their wages while they are there, as it does whether Mr. Bloomberg is New York or not. Guns are largely forbidden in Bermuda — even most police officers do not use them — but the mayor’s guards have special permission to carry weapons. A spokesman for the Police Department declined to comment.
The dirty elitist pig!

That's great Dupont. Now instead of worrying about paying for insurance and feeling good you received that socialist state type entitlement, you can instead worry about if your son will be able to find a job after college.
I would rather pay the insurance.
The opportunity cost difference is quite large between paying for insurance for a couple of years and not being able to find a decent job for several years or at all.
Are you going to celebrate your perceived win?
I'm not getting some kind of entitlement moron, my wife and I are still paying the same insurance carrier we always have. I'm not worried about the kid finding a job. He's been upgraded from an unpaid intern to paid status and that's a good sign that he'll be offered a position when he graduates.
I'm sure that a chemo patient who gets to continue their treatments without going bankrupt don't really care that you think they're getting some kind of "socialistic" entitlement.

Palestinians accuse the Jews of depriving them of their home when the vast majority of them moved to Israel after the Jews reclaimed the land from desolation and ruin. The Arab/Islam world owned over 1,000 times more real estate than Israel.
In 1991, thousands of Palestinians were expelled from Kuwait after they were found conspiring with the Iraqis in selling out their host country.
They were also expelled from Jordon in 1971.
Your full of crap as usual Carol, Palestinians have been living in the area now know as Israel for generations before they were forcibly expelled.

What reason is there for registering guns unless the government wants to ability to locate them for confiscation?
Sure stupid, that's why we register cars too. Guns like cars should be registered and insured and anyone who wants to own a gun should be required to show that they have the requisite skill and competence to handle one. Just like we don't want just any yahoo out on the roads we shouldn't have incompetent people with a device that can kill or injure someone from a mile away.

I guess I missed the part in the bill of rights where it states that driving a car is a right.

As always you demonstrate your ignorance and inherit disregard for our rights and liberties. The right to bear arms is just that a right. Your ability to drive an automobile is not a right but a privilege.

Cyprus clinched a last-ditch deal with international lenders on Monday for a 10 billion euro ($13 billion) bailout that will shut down its second largest bank and inflict heavy losses on uninsured depositors, including wealthy Russians.

The agreement emerged after fraught negotiations between President Nicos Anastasiades and heads of the European Union, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund - hours before a deadline to avert a collapse of the banking system.

The plan, swiftly endorsed by euro zone finance ministers, will spare the east Mediterranean island a financial meltdown by winding down Popular Bank of Cyprus, also known as Laiki, and shifting deposits below 100,000 euros to the Bank of Cyprus to create a "good bank".

Deposits above 100,000 euros, which under EU law are not guaranteed, will be frozen and used to resolve debts, and Laiki will effectively be shuttered, with thousands of job losses.

An EU spokesman said no levy would be imposed on any deposits in Cypriot banks. A first attempt at a deal last week collapsed when the Cypriot parliament rejected a proposed levy on all deposits.
