Stunning.  Simply stunning.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Makes you wonder doesn't it?

Sent the Cyprus thing to a friend Saturday morning and he said this may be the reason the government is buying so many bullets. 

Math-R-Hard for the one, but it shouldn't be for the rest of us.

And trying to take away as many guns as possible. I had this sent to me on another site. I can't vouch for the accuracy, but it makes me wonder:

"In 1987, a little known piece of administrative law was enacted via bureaucracy labeled Emergency Banking Regulation #1. It provides for American banks to give depositors the same kind of haircut proposed for Cyprus and New Zealand in case there is the potential collapse of the banking system. You will get a Form 1099 for the money you lost, and you can claim it on your income taxes. This was enacted via administrative law because there would have been massive protests had this been done in Congress in the light of day.

In 2004, the St. Louis Fed published a scholarly paper on how the government could seize 401(k)'s and IRA's in the event of a financial collapse. This has been in the works for some years. "
