That's no surprise coming from someone who is a "lawyer" yet rents.

He got that line from a million Canadians over the past 35 years.

Paco, you rent your house from the government, it's called property taxes. How about growing a pair and quit paying them, you'll find out you really don't own your house.

There are a couple of larger points here both of you miss.
1. The more control the government has over things, the more favors are doled out through the crony system.
2. Whenever the politicians bleat on about "fairness" and everybody doing their fair share, it's always the middle class and the moderately wealthy who end up taking it in the shorts.
1. The rich have been looting society for years, inequality has been on the rise.

2. Cyprus is sticking it to the Russian mobsters who stored their stolen wealth there, today's kulaks.

Little wonder a bright boy like you has never heard of equity and the mortgage interest deduction. Oh, and those property taxes are deductible, too.

Poor people create jobs, right?
Oh, wait...of course they do for leeches like social services "lawyers" and other government parasites who call themselves "professionals."

Subsidies for the upper middle class whites that don't need them.

Yet you people freak over Section 8.

The rich hoard wealth, and when they do spend it, it's on conspicuous consumption.

Cyprus is about as socialist as they come.
Much like Comrade Hugo Chavez, government control of the economy gave Comrade Nicos Anastidies ample opportunity to get his family money out of Laiki Bank before the haircuts had to be taken.
He got his money out and the middle class got bigger haircuts.
Same in this country. Taxing the "rich" equates to taxing the farmer, or the restaurant owner, or the doctor or lawyer with a successful practice.
It's a fraud to buy votes.

There was a poll mentioned on NBC not long ago that showed the average American thought "small business owners" (no definition given) NETTED an average of $250,000 annually.
Those are the kind of uneducated, low information morons voting in elections.

I suppose those who work in shipyards and their suppliers don't need jobs, either. Nor does government need the taxes Allen pays on such a vessel.
You're too easy.

And again, no thought to the building industry, the furniture manufacturers, the landscapers, the home renovation and repair businesses...

Perhaps they could be working on something that will benefit humanity, not a few parasites.

I argued this on another conservative board. I argued that everybody should have sucked it up and taken the original deal, which was a 7% to 10% haircut on ALL accounts was the most pragmatic thing to do.
Everybody benefits from the fact that Cyprus is an offshore banking haven. Without banking, Cyprus has virtually no economy and they go back to goatherding. By taking a modest hit amounting to a couple of years' interest, they keep the very profitable golden goose alive.
As it stands now, the golden goose has been cooked. It is estimated that Cyprus will be in an economic funk for the next generation or so.

you are correct..........

to an idiot like yourself........tax deductions are equal to section 8 housing.

problem with your absolute idiotic opinion is that taxes pay for section 8 housing.

taxes are paid on earned income, and section 8 is FREE housing for someone with no income to tax.

duct tape was invented to cover your mouth.

Who the hell are you to determine what benefits anyone in a free economy?
Does the entertainment industry benefit humanity? I may rail against some of its output, but it employs millions. Even scummy rap artists pump millions into the economy and employ tens of thousand of people in one capacity or another. That's called FREEDOM, douche.
You are really f'd in the head.
