- Government Confiscation And Lifting The Veil On “The 401(k) Scheme” (ZeroHedge, April 6, 2014):
From Presidential edicts of ‘MyRA’ being for your own good and “will never go down in value” to Poland’s ‘precedent-setting’ confiscation of public pensions funds for the good of the nation’s debt load; and from the IMF’s “one-off” wealth tax ‘idea’ to Europe’s recent consideration of ‘wholesale savings confiscations and enforced redistribution’, it appears Marc Faber’s warning that “from now onwards, the bailouts will also be at the expense of the asset holders, the well-to-do people. So if you have money I am sure the governments will one day take away 20-30% of my wealth,” is becoming more likely every day.

- George Carlin: The American Dream (Video):
