Coming to a bank near you...


People with bank accounts in Cyprus were shocked Saturday to learn that as part of an agreement reached with international creditors, the government has imposed a tax on all deposits to help bail out the nation and its banks.

While the island nation may be small, it’s an international favorite for offshore banking– particularly for wealthy Russians. The tax will range from 6.75% to 9.9%, depending on how much is in the account.

“This is a clear-cut robbery,” Andreas Moyseos, a former electrician who is now a pensioner in Nicosia, told the New York Times. Iliana Andreadakis, a book critic, further added: “This issue doesn’t only affect the people’s deposits, but also the prospect of the Cyprus economy. The E.U. has diminished its credibility.”

Rumor has it that they're moving it up to near 12% now.

Gold was confiscated here in the 1930's... We're not at that point yet but I can see it coming.

These are the final steps in the socialist economic/political model.

Demonize the "rich" and lie about your intentions of "only taxing the rich"

Then they STEAL/Confiscate/Tax the private accounts, ALL private accounts, not just the rich.
Where does that money go? Toward repayment of bailouts already made.

Uh oh....
Still spending, still high unemployment, still lack of revenue......
We need more money!!!

There is a run on the banks.... Banks can't cover.....Government steps in and confiscates the whole shebang in the interest of "our own good and fairness". Now you have a government imposed economic martial law on private money.

The socialist model of theft is complete.
All that is left is to crush the inevitable uprising of the citizens against this theft by government force.

The follow up/ final stage is oppression using government sponsored terror and murder to keep the people in line and the elite in power. Tyranny.

Unfortunately, that is not the final stage. The final stage is when the US sees how miserably the socialist model has failed and copies it line for line.

Is there a bad idea we are NOT ready to implement in the US?

HeY SoCilissim iS a PaRRRR-T !

Socialism is a heck of a fun ride when it starts. It's like a pretty girl showing up at a Gang party uptown. The first hour or two is a hoot, free Jello Shots and Tequila for everyone!

Its only after you wake up naked, violated, and beaten to a bloody pulp that you realize that you made some poor choices.
