Trust us, things are much better now aren’t they?

Cyprus is the fifth Eurozone country (out of 17) that has needed a bailout — and the fifth that is having austerity drilled down the throat of the poor and middle class.

Huzzah!

As announced on Saturday, depositors in Cypriot banks with balances of more than €100,000, or $129,500, would have to pay a one-time tax of 9.9 percent on their holdings. Those with balances below that threshold would pay 6.75 percent.

Sorry wealthy people screwed up your economy, give us a big chuck of everyone else’s money.

Sounds as fair as usual.

UPDATE:  In completely unrelated news.  Nice job Tucker Carlson.  Waaaaa-waaaa.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
