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.


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 .
