As the current crisis in Cyprus continues to unfold, it would behoove Americans to stop and take a look around at what is truly happening. The "troika" which is composed of the European Union, the International Monetary Fund, and the European Central Bank has effectively ruled that it is legal to usurp funds from depositors who hold over 100,000 euros in Cypriot banks. Cypriot patriots are protesting this action of saving the banking sector due to the banks' own foibles. Long gone are the days of a country's sovereignty. Good thing this is so far away from the bubble most of us live in.
