Americans' money is safe in banks? Yes and no.

The U.S. government is very unlikely to just seize money wholesale from people's bank accounts, as is being done in Cyprus. But does that mean that your life savings are safe?

No. There are more sophisticated ways for governments to take what you have put aside for yourself and use it for whatever the politicians feel like using it for. If they do it slowly but steadily, they can take a big chunk of what you have sacrificed for years to save, before you are even aware, much less alarmed.

That is in fact already happening. When officials of the Federal Reserve System speak in vague and lofty terms about "quantitative easing," what they are talking about is creating more money out of thin air, as the Federal Reserve is authorized to do — and has been doing in recent years, to the tune of tens of billions of dollars a month.

When the federal government spends far beyond the tax revenues it has, it gets the extra money by selling bonds. The Federal Reserve has become the biggest buyer of these bonds, since it costs them nothing to create more money.

This new money buys just as much as the money you sacrificed to save for years. More money in circulation, without a corresponding increase in output, means rising prices. Although the numbers in your bank book may remain the same, part of the purchasing power of your money is transferred to the government. Is that really different from what Cyprus has done?

AFTER ALL THE YEARS OF BEING DEMOCRATSBoston’s black community leaders are sharply divided over whether any of the city’s current cadre of minority politicians are ready to step up to the mayor’s office — should Mayor Thomas M. Menino step down — with some saying none are ready for prime time yet.

“I’d like to see a mayor of color, but I don’t see anybody that I would go all out, gung-ho for to try and get them into office,” said Minister Don Muhammad of the Nation of Islam.“At this point, I’m reluctant to support anyone very heavily.”

The Rev. Eugene Rivers, co-founder of the 10 Point Coalition — who told the Herald he plans to endorse Southie Rep. Nick P. Collins in the state Senate race — said of the mayor’s race:“There’s $1.6 billion in economic development in the city, and I don’t see a black politician that demonstrates that he or she can do the deal. It’s all about the business. That’s what this town is about.”

Black activist and political strategist Joyce Ferriabough Bolling, meanwhile, said those in the city’s likely pool of minority candidates would be “formidable,” but they would face stiff fund-raising challenges.

“I think all of them would have a tough time getting to the million (dollars) needed to play in the card game,” she said.

THIS IS WHAT YOU VOTED FOR OBAMA FOR BLACK AMERICA Ministers sound political alarm for Emanuel over school closings Black ministers whom former Mayor Richard M. Daley counted among his most loyal supporters broke with Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Wednesday on the volatile issue of school closings and warned that the political firestorm could burn Emanuel’s re-election chances.

African-American voters helped put Emanuel in office after President Barack Obama’s pivotal endorsement of his former chief of staff, but the ministers say they are bitterly disappointed in Emanuel’s performance on school and crime issues.

Calling it a “land grab” that puts children in danger, they urged Emanuel to call off or scale back his plan to close 54 elementary schools, but the mayor didn’t budge.

He’s done negotiating after starting with 300 schools, eliminating high schools and the best-performing, under-enrolled schools and further reducing the hit list to ensure that displaced students go to a better-quality school no more than 1.5 miles away.

A whack on the hiney with an open palm of the hand when it's well-deserved avoids violence further down the road.
Children discipline themselves when touching a hot stove. They never do it again.
When it comes to teaching right from wrong, they need a loving parent to teach them the same hot stove analogy.
You stole that analogy from me Queen Bee__you may not remember__but you did and by the way it's a hot electric range.

Violence aside, "one way parents" can inflict more damage on their youngsters with unkind words thank they ever could with hiney panks.

You already know what a one way parent is right?

Reminds of Al Gore inventing the internet with you claiming to have invented the hot stove/hot electric range/whatever analogy.

At any rate, no one has said anything about or disagrees with parents who never praise their children and have only unkind words and criticism.

But what does that have to do with discipline and teaching children right from wrong so they don't grow up to be self-absorbed and/or violent adults?

Well, wouldn't that depend on how many times all parties have been to London? You people really need to stop saying shit that you have no idea whether it's true or not. I guess I see your point, however; I imagine an Irish potato farmer, upon returning to Connacht after his family died in the famine might be inclined to brag to the other remaining potato farmers about how well traveled he is? The difficulty here is, that there's not a lot of reason to envy you for it? But that's your point, isn't it? You want desperately to be envied?

So, um, Waxy, if you're a big man in the metropolis, and it's... oh.. 7:45 in the evening... why are you here on an anonymous chatroom on the internet? Can't afford to stand your mates a pint? Oh, I see, you're there for some sort of operation only the Brits can provide... on your teeth or something?

The mass murderers at Columbine and Newtown were probably never disciplined by their parents.
Like the parents who take their urchins on an airline flight and let them kick the back of the seat in front of them for hours without saying a word, then get offended if you complain.
Sad but true. Guns, ammunition and all the plans to carry out that massacre were in one of the boys' parent's basement. They had no clue.

It's gotten so bad that I often identify rude people as "probably a liberal". Not that conservatives aren't rude too. It's just a knee-jerk reaction.
