The party must go on. First and foremost – you realize don’t you – the federal government will be spending billions of dollars more than they did last year even though the so-called “devastating” sequester is in place.

By Steve McGough | March 18, 2013 |

The plan put forth by European finance ministers is to outright confiscate 9.9 percent from any person with a Cyprus bank account with more than €100,000 ($129,000 US).
