    "one-off" - lol

    Imagine waking up one morning to find your bank account ten percent less. This is how bank runs and riots start and societies collapse.

    Well it seems the cool trend this generation is to adopt everything 'European' so I wonder how much longer until this occurs here.

    It's clearly a "penalty", not a "tax"

    A buddy's parents put all their cash under the mattress and their house burned down a few years ago. Nothing is safe.

    I was just thinking the same thing.

    Don't act so sure. You're giving American voters too much credit. :eek: Hell, I've been involved in D&D arguments where I was lambasted by intelligent people for not bowing to European policies.

    This is how it's working over there:
