Liberals in the USA who enjoy spending money the government doesn’t have should read carefully the March 19 newspaper article, “Plan to raid Cypriots’ people’s savings rattles Europe.”

They should get their savings ready, now that people’s savings have been mentioned as a way to bail out a financial troubled government.

We can well believe our politicians read this as a way if necessary.

Let’s just hope interest rates the government pays on borrowed money doesn’t jump back to normal rates — consider the rising national debt, $17 trillion, times 5 percent or 6 percent interest. That’s so scary I don’t want to know the answer.

Must I consider my mattress a safe hiding place from the government’s legal reach?
