I'll keep this short and sweet.  Today there is all this talk about Cyprus' debt issues and the fact the governmemt wants to "tax" bank savings deposits!  Heck Ben Bernanke been doing this to every American depositor in the coutry and all of us sit around and let him get away with it.  Why!

Here is what I'm saying.  It is clearly understood by all economists that Ben has been creating money out ot thin air.  And to add insult to injury, Bennie has been keeping interest rates near zero percent.  There is inflation - have you bought a pound of bacon lately? How about a gallon of gas?  So each year that goes by, our savings buys less and less product.  That's stealing our money folks, not unlike taxing our savings! And it is the direct policies of Obama and Bennie that are doing that to every one of us.  Does it hurt the rich, not a chance!  Does it hurt the poor, nope they have no savings.  So who's really being raped here, yes, you and me, the same middle class that we're told time and again are suppose to be helped by this administration.  At least Cyprus does taxes the savings openly. 

So why does Bennie want to keep rates low. We're told because he wants to stimulate the economy.  Has anyone looked lately, I certainly don't see a stimulated economy!  The real reason Bennie MUST keep rates low is because for a 1% increase in rates, our U.S. government now has an additional $170 billion of interest expense.  Rates go up 4%, that's nearly $700 billion more in interest expense to us tax payers, which by the way just gets added to the national debt.  

Can you see the fiscal declining cycle we're in?
