U.S. needs to review the IMF standards for national bailouts

The U.S. represents approximately 17% of the International Monetary Fund, which is somewhat like a global credit union that financially rescues countries such as Greece and others from default or loans them money to bolster the country’s reserves. It isn’t bad enough that the U.S. can’t bail themselves out of debt, but we use taxpayer’s money to give to foreign nations, which have lived beyond their means and who also believe that you solve your debt problems by spending more to stimulate the economy. Apparently, you can’t...

The Cyprus confiscatory policy to...

According to the latest issue of the Patriot Post, deciding whether to approve the Keystone XL pipeline has been one of the toughest challenges of the Obama presidency. However, Obama may have already made up his mind to sell out the tens-of-thousands of American jobs to the left environmentalists because it has been reported that the Obama administration is preparing to tell all federal agencies for the first time that they should consider the impact on global warming before approving major projects. Under the current National Environmental...

Cyprus could tax people’s bank accounts for EU bailout

The mainstream media always mocks conservatives’ caution about what big government spending can lead to. The doubters finally got to see what could result with too much progressive government. The European Union’s demands have pushed the Cyprus government to consider forcing Cypriot bank depositors to pay up to 10% of their bank deposits as a tax in exchange for a $13B bailout from Europe. Did the progressive loving Cyprus people gleefully accept their fair share? No, they swarmed the banks, forcing the government to shut them...
