I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M SUPPOSED TO TAKE THEM SERIOUSLY The House and Senate are wrangling over proposals that will do nothing to actually solve the problems we face with the pension system.

AND THE EU MONEY GRAB PERHAPS EXPANDS TO OTHER NATIONS At least one EU official says assets should be seized to prevent failure of banks. Not just in Cyprus, but in Spain and Italy as well. The upside? You should have the option of moving your money. He entire argument is that if you have your money in a bank or country in trouble, you should get a higher rate of return, but expect the risk that comes with that return. Is this a return to actual economics? Maybe. But how long before banks AND governments start to howl about high interest rates?
