Its funny that the thought of someone taking 10% of our money invokes such a strong and horrified response. I wonder if the response to the last Iraq war was as strong? Or perhaps the Tsunami that killed 250,000 people.... Don't get me wrong this situation is utterly deplorable but isn't it interesting how we respond as humans? Money has such grasp on us all, its almost as if its been designed that way. I wonder if people are more likely to fight their government to keep their money than they were to stop an illegal war?

Time will tell.........................

This is International Socialism and it has pretty much taken over the world. I've been yelling and screaming on this site since I joined and just have people telling me I don't know what Socialism is. Well this is it, so everyone can decide if they like it or not.

I don't want to be off topic here, but the Senate approved the resolution for the Iraq War, thus it was legal. Was it justified? Maybe not. But illegal no.

Now the Libyan bombing was not approved by Congress.


On topic, the activities of the International Bankers and Money Changers and International Socialism has created this monster.

I just can't get past the fact that Germany is calling the shots for the other EU Member States.


Yes, it looks like National Socialism never left Germany, it just stopped directly murdering people for the cause.

Those of you who think this is a great idea, do you realize that the citizens are being forced to give up their hard-earned money that has already been taxed at least once? (and yes.... the rich work hard too. Most of them didn't get rich just sitting around doing nothing. There are exceptions, just like there are poor people who are lazy, but also those who work very hard)

Do some of you realize that these people are literally getting robbed by their Government, having their assets seized forcefully in order to bail out their Government's bad spending habits??? Why should it ever be acceptable to have a politician spend your taxes irresponsibly, go bankrupt and then force him/herself into your bank account and take your earnings to pay for the debts he/she has created?! My God..... what's next? Will they force you to house and feed their troops? Nationalize your farm and force you to work it for next to nothing? It is incredible to me what some people find perfectly acceptable.


The directness of the theft should be a rude wake up call as to what they have been doing since the Bolshevik Revolution. After all this is what Socialism is, public theft of wealth from private citizens. And to think so many people think it's a grand idea.

I am actually pretty sure that the majority of those who cry are the little guys, those with a few thousand or so savings on their accounts. The big boys (russian mafia!!) who have BILLIONS on Cyprus accounts will in all likelihood not complain, they know already where their money comes from, it's (literally) dirty money.

The mistake they made in Cyprus is to take money from ALL people, including those little savers with their savings accounts. It was a bad and silly move, IMHO.

But...as you so nicely point out, GREED, again, is the mother of all evil.

Yeah I really love how "Socialism" is used as a swearword by certain people.

doom porn is so teasing it tickles the mind with possibilities only to leave you feeling unfulfilled and morose.

its coming...its coming....its coming...aaaaaaaaaaannnyy second now.........

there will be no bang....the world will end in a whimper. Like a dirty homeless man curled up in an alley way freezing to death in the cold.

Billie from predator said it best " we're all gonna die.." so dont stress baby. its only money. If you spent your sunny days cooped up in an office slaving for the man because you thought you were playing a different game and just woke up and figured out that you were running in the wrong direction well...thats just bad judgement on your part isnt it?

I work for a financial institute so I know all about the corporate world. There are more people with something to lose in the lower end and middle part of the pyramid to let it fail.

if they are taking these measures its because things are drastic and they are trying to stop the collapse not speed it up. Anybody that thinks the banks want the economy to collapse is missing a piece of the puzzle.

Do you even have a clue?

The IMF (including US taxpayers money btw) and the EU give out credits for failed banks and states. If the credits aren't paid back the poeple of the countries who gave the credits have to work harder or earn less to get out of the non-selfinflicted depth.

It is a natural thing, that if you lend a buddy 50.000 dollars, you may ask him if he still got his job or why he spent 5.000 on dope and hookers the other night.

Corruption and Deregulation of the financial industry have caused the mess we ALL are in. The politicians and institutions, just want to make sure, that the money and trust they lend won't go south AGAIN.

This has nothing to do with germans or history or nazis. Come over man visit Germany, have a beer.

This is kinda like a fat kid taking a sandwich from the other kids. Sandwiches are running out, so the fat kid tells the skinny kid, "Hey don't worry, I'm gonna take some sandwiches from the angry, mean kid." (The hated kid).

So the Gov says "We're gonna tax the rich!" and people say, "Good! I hate those rich bastards for having more than me! Treating us all like dirt..."

Problem is, once the rich people's sandwiches are gone, the fat kid is going to start looking at the scraps you barely have to call your own.

Don't let fat kid's steal sandwiches, put them on a diet.

As I said in the Cyprus thread, once one gets hit, they all do. That is the very nature of the Euro and the common failing across all Euro nailed countries. If there is anyone on this board from a country that uses the Euro, I'd get your money out now before they announce a bank holiday, freeze transactions and steal your hard earned money. If you have a lot of savings and taking it all out is not an option, transfer it to Share Centre or similar scheme, do not leave it sitting in banks. Buy up Gold is always my advice, Gold will be a winner here, but that's for another thread.

They've been doing this in Britain for a few years now, keeping interest rates at near zero and pushing up the rate of real inflation, it is simply the same thing, a hidden tax, just with more stealth and easier to get away with. The EU Mafia are already known to be criminal and detest individual countries, let alone individuals living in those countries, so they don't care how blatant they make it, what is anyone going to actually do about it?

For every country nailed to the Euro, good luck, but you signed your own death certificates years ago when you signed up to have your economies controlled by the EU Mafia. I honestly think burning a country to the ground would be a better option than to have those b*****ds in control.

It's perfectly natural for money to have a grasp on us. Money = survival in this day and age. Most people don't know how to hunt or grow food, so without money they would waste away.

So I can sort of understand taxing deposit accounts of millionares and billionares, but not the average joe. When rich people put money in the bank they are basically taking out of the total economy, its much worse than when I put an extra $200 back for a rainy day.

I would definately not be cool with it until they reigned in the spending and stop borrowing forty some cents of every dollar we spend.

The other thing is that I don't trust TPTB to use that money to pay down the debt. They already spend our tax dollars on all kinds of stupid things that make no sense. ie: robotic squirrel.

I don't understand what you mean. It looks like you are German, and I know that a lot of people like the system Germany has today, but then why is it ok for Germany to intervene in Cyprus and tell them they need to tax the wealthy to pay for it's govt overspending?
America is spending too much now and creating a debt crisis. Will Germany tell us what to do next? Taxing the Taxing the wealthy is redistribution of income and redistribution of income is Socialist, and that may be fine for you, but there are still Americans who understand free enterprise and entrepreneurship.

Perhaps you believe that the International bankers are not tied to Socialism. I would then observe the activities of the monied elite and see who promotes Socialism. George Soros is one that springs to mind.

It was the only option or Cyprus would erupt, it will be interesting to see the EU Mafia's next move. Putin will be pleased, I do believe that many Russian "Businessmen" close to Putin hold substantial sums in the region of tens of billions in Cypriot banks....but I'm sure that didn't sway the Cypriot government's vote one bit...

It is a person's right to save the money he makes. The wealthy spend enough money without being taxed. They get taxed more than the poor. The graduated income tax is a Socialistic device meant to punish the bourgeoisie, and reward the poor proletariat.
Taxing the wealthy is not a way to prosperity for all, and Socialism in general is not a way to prosperity. It is not even fair, though it's proponents like to say that it is.
The Super wealthy have their money in trusts and tax shelters, and thus, it is always the middle class merchants who pay the price, no matter how many times the Warren Buffetts of the world say they want to be taxed more. They could always just write a check to Uncle Sam if they feel so much like paying for govt overspending. Why do they have to promote higher taxes for the rest of us?

Also, in speaking of prosperity, there is a gold mine in the Yellowstone area, which the owner cannot develop, and why? Because Yellowstone is considered a Heritage Site by the Socialistic environmentalists who want the human parasites off the land to keep it pristine. I've often thought about why people would not want more gold to be mined to add to the general prosperity of mankind. The only answer I can come up with is control.

Whether or not I had millions, if 15% was taken from me I would probably fire or lay off two workers so I could earn it back the same year.

Doesn't seem like a solid master plan. If you take liquid assets will it encourage people to slash bottom lines. If you take hard assets (old money) real estate, etc... Is that fair? Will it affect housing prices? etc... etc....

Seems to me know matter what the gov takes it's going to have consequence.

On the other hand, if the government stopped taking/spending.
