EU to Cyprus: About that savings account - yeah, we’re taking it
The mainstream media likes to mock conservatives' caution about the regulations that lead to an overreaching government — wonder what the scoffers were thinking when they saw the news out of the EU this weekend? Eurozone finance ministers demanded Cypriots pay up to 10% of their bank deposits in exchange for a bailout. Did the progressive loving Europeans gleefully accept the tax? Nope, they swarmed the banks, shutting them down for two days.

How bizarre. ROFLMAO

You believe Indians who inhabited the lands of North and South America were not civilized and practicing a culture that benefited the people on the lands before Columbus?

ROFLMAO......

300 B.C.
The Maya adopt the idea of a hierarchical society ruled by nobles and kings.

100 B.C.
The city of Teotihuacan is founded and for centuries is the cultural, religious and trading center of Mesoamerica.

As you can see American Indians had an infrastructure in place some 900 years prior to Columbus stumbling onto America. The building of the Teotihuacan pyramids had to have required an advance understanding of engineering just as the pyramids in Egypt required.

Note also, Teotihuacan was the center of economic activity and culture?

600
An unknown event destroys the civilization at Teotihuacan, along with the empire it supported. Tikal becomes the largest city-state in Mesoamerica, with as many as 500,000 inhabitants within the city and its hinterland.

900
The Classic Period of Maya history ends, with the collapse of the southern lowland cities. Maya cities in the northern Yucatan continue to thrive

Capitalism was a practice in the Americas a long time before Europe was remotely organized into a single society itself. American Indian culture and infrastructure can be traced through archaeological findings back some 11,000 years.

What you classify as a jungle was actually a network of interconnected communities stretching from Mexico City to Oregon in North America.

Your claim to be an American citizen is suspect. Or, you are intentionally trying to minimize the people and culture occupying America before contact with Columbus. Your claims of what America was and it's people prior to Columbus are bizarre and misguided.

New York has in effect a 2% property tax cap you fcuking imbecile!

We pay more, but we also have a lower than national average unemployment rate, property values that are triple where you live azzhat, the highest average wage earners in the country, and the entire financial industry still parked right here!

Guess what you get when you pay shit?

SHIT!
Texas pays "shit" and created more jobs than any other state!

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)-- Texas has created a lot of jobs over the 10 years that Rick Perry's been governor -- there's no doubt about it.
Perry, who formally launched his presidential candidacy on Saturday, is making his state's economic prowess a centerpiece of his campaign. Already he's been bragging about his state being the "epicenter of job growth."

Texas has gained more than 1 million net new jobs in the decade Perry has led the state. And it's been going strong since the recession ended.
"We are home to fewer than one in 10 Americans ... but four in 10 new American jobs are in our state," he told a conference of state legislators from around the nation this week.

Liberals HATE Texas so much that they claim, in their fairy land imagination, that Texas created the less jobs in the world! LOL!!!

Where has there a Dictator existed in the last 50 years who didn't rise to power over the people of a nation that didn't have the support and backing of America?

here's a hint, look at the nations where oil is produced first...... ROFLMAO

America has always supported tyrants who maintain dictator so long as America's interest is preserved. America isn't interested much in human rights, we are strictly involved for the profit.

if you want to see Capitalism at work, Its China and their Government structure operates just like a Plutocracy where the citizens cannot interfere with economical policiy & conditions and the people have no say in Society just the Plutocracy.

How Capitalism Works

In this article, we'll explore capitalism: its roots, principles and effects, benefits and shortcomings. We'll find out how capitalism compares to the alternative method of doing business. Incidentally, the United States doesn't actually practice capitalism. No one does these days.

Which may be true, but the infrastructure of nations to host open market trade and the establishment of trade routes existed long before Columbus contact with America.

Due to its proximity to neighboring countries, the Arabs established trade routes to Egypt, Persia, and Byzantium. As Islam spread in the 7th century, mercantilism spread rapidly to Spain, Portugal, Northern Africa, and Asia. Mercantilism finally revived in Europe in the 14th century, as mercantilism spread from Spain and Portugal.

Sorry to burst your Liberal bubble but
the countries that produce oil had dictators, kings and SULTANS, long before America existed!

Liberals hate America, that is why they are Liberals first and never American patriots.

The Native Inhabitants of the Americas worked nothing like the system misrepresented as capitalism as you think you understand.

There has never been a period in America when the settlers came no matter where they had come from that was void of taxation. Where did you get that half wit idea?

Initially those settlers who came owed a tax to the kings of England, or where ever they arrived from. Those colonies were chartered either by corporations who paid the taxes or by the crowd who collected the taxes from the various individuals through the governors assigned by the crown.

You are revising American History to fit your narrative. Just as there has always been a program similar to Social Security for the benefit of widows, veterans and the disabled from the point of organizing the settlements. Social Security that republicans hate was derived from that very social safety net.

Is this the best you can do in answering the question, Where has there a dictator existed that American hasn't supported and backed in the last 50 years?

You think our Foreign Aid makes up for supporting tyranny around the world?

Our Foreign Aid usually greases the hands that supplies access to the natural resources we seek. Do you honestly think we would be in Iraq or Afghanistan if either of those countries didn't have resources we would like to slice and dice to produces good for a market?

Where has America been in conflict that didn't have some under lined purpose for exploiting?
