If so, and if there is proof, why not prosecute the thieves instead of the government becoming thieves themselves?
Ok, let's look at your questions logically. First - but in no particular order - what if the "government" is complicit in the theft? what if both "the government AND the depositors are both thieves? contrary to popular fiction there IS no honor among thieves and they will freely steal from one another given the chance or to escape some necessity. It might sound like I'm answering a question with a question but it is, of course, rhetorical.

In the case of Cyprus, a glorified military base with a few banks stuck in for local color, the country has no other industry or means of income than banking and the military bases. That's kind of a red flag right there. I think I saw one of you blathering on about all the natural gas under it, which, given the nature of banking in the country, is not all that hard to believe, however, it would appear that fracking out the natural gas would cause the island to sink into the ocean thereby defeating any advantage the gas might have provided in the first place so let's discount that alternative. Plus, it would likely flood Greece or someplace and that would only serve to energize flack who's always alert to the possibility of a new crisis and we don't want that, do we? Good GOD I forgot about the impact such a a disaster would have on carol!

The proofs you mention are myriad. But foremost among them is their location. Why would a depositor keep his or her or their money in a bank 3,000 miles from home? So you could get a tan on your way to the ATM? to share the wealth with the less fortunate? No, no, no, Cyprus is a tax-haven; a place where even squares can have a ball, so to speak. If your suggestion is that Cyrus, or Aruba, or the Caymans, or that island chain in the Pacific where there are literally no human beings just a shed with some servers in it,(less than the predicted 34.5 we've heard so much about, is just a nice place to keep your cash then I think even carol can see the weakness in your argument.

Those places exist for crooks. Crooks like you possibly? There is no other reason for them to be there. Now, I suppose it could be argued that since each "country" gets to make it's own laws, and since the laws those places made don't actually forbid tax evasion, that those unlucky depositors in Cyprus were robbed. But who robbed them? The Cypriot government? Obama? There IS no Cypriot government, save the banks, and doubtless the Obama's are too engaged spending taxpayer dollars in the Bahamas to care much about it all.

You'll need not only learn how to write complete sentences, I'm afraid, but also how to frame an argument so you don't just appear utterly stoopid.

Rand Paul has introduced that as a Bill in Congress.

Hell with Americans on food stamps. Take that money and give it to Israel!!

The nitwits want us to become the protector of Israel, as the Jewish State commmits crimes against the Palestinians and continues to steal their lands.

What was it George Washington said about avoiding foreign entanglements??

""“a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification”….
“And it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens (who devote themselves to the favorite nation), facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country,”
“such attachments are particularly alarming to the truly enlightened and independent patriot. How many opportunities do they afford to tamper with domestic factions, to practice the arts of seduction, to mislead public opinion, to influence or awe the public councils.”

Jay Rockefeller Wants The FCC to Regulate The Internet “For The Children”

In a pathetic attempt to push regulation onto the internet and the alternative media, globalist Jay Rockefeller has been hosting events and political discussions to promote FCC regulation of the internet.

As many have been predicting he is using “the children” as cover and disguising this power grab as a preventative measure against “cyber bullying”.

One can only imagine how long it would be after FCC regulation that a Rockefeller would accuse various youtubers or bloggers of being “cyber bullies” and force them to remove their content until there is no more negative press left about them on the internet.

Let's try and limit the conversation to one or possibly two subjects. How about... finance and politics. You'll notice that wasn't posed as a question? I'm afraid I'm going to have to insist that this not become an abortion, or retard, or the evil that is the internet thread.

TV and Radio are regulated.

As content moves to the internet, regulation is required.

If they force content providers to deal in the truth, you'll see WND and many extreme right wing sites forced to shut down, because all they deal in is hatred, racism, and mysogyny.

It will be the end for Breitbart and the sort of antiAmerican sites that you and your fascists buddies enjoy so much.

America is quickly becoming a left center nation.

The right wing is dying off, and you along with it, old fella.

The new majority is far more progressive and inclusive than that of the GOPigs.

It doesn't matter how much you right whiners try to deny it & blame others. History will always cal it the Bush recession.

It will ALWAYS have started under Bush.

It will Always be the fault of Bush & Republican policies.

It will always have caused millions to lose their jobs.

It will always have created the trillion dollar deficits.

It will always have cause the record numbers on Food Stamps.

The Bush Wars will ALWAYS have cost this country trillions in unfunded spending.

The Bush tax cuts will ALWAYS result in the loss of trillions in revenues.

No matter how much you try to rewrite history, no matter how many racial slurs you sling. These facts will for ever remain true.

I don't think I'm being too tough trying to squeeze out the religious right chatter in here, it looks to me like many on the right are trying to do the same thing. I think I'll let the Israel stuff slide, since, though it is framed as a religious argument, it's really all about the money.

So, let's see... just as a fun exercise can anyone suggest ways to starve the government, any government, of the cash it needs to pay the... um... SIX TRILLION DOLLARS the two wars Bush started and then hoplessly lost? I refer you to today's article in the Washington Post which, for some reason, is on Page A7?

You let her off on the R45, which she got dead wrong. There is no refrigerant called R45.

Cars previously used R12.

Nowadays, it's R134a refrigerant that is used in cars.

I think we should repeal Obamacare along with all of its unknown costs, taxes and punitive fines preventing businesses from hiring.

I think we should tell government to step off and let the people and the free market regulate ourselves with minimal oversight.

I think we should let the private sector grow by increasing jobs by building a pipeline and tapping into our own natural resources.

I think we should tell government to stop wasteful spending, reform entitlement programs and clean up their own mess.

Then there would not be a 70% surge in government dependency since 2008 to need food stamps.

You just want to treat the symptoms. I want to treat the disease.
