CAYMAN ISLANDS (The Borowitz Report) May 3, 2012 - In an uncharacteristically emotional scene for the presumptive GOP nominee, Mitt Romney today paid a surprise visit to his money in the Cayman Islands.

Speaking in a bank vault surrounded by stacks of cash, Mr. Romney praised his money for "the brave work you have done in the never-ending fight for freedom from Federal income tax."

"Thanks to your hard work, losers around the world are envious of me," he added. "For that I salute you."

Stressing that his money's mission in the Caymans was "far from over," he refused to set any timetable for withdrawal.

In a reference to his bid for the Presidency, Mr. Romney told his money, "It would be an honor and a privilege to have my face on you someday."

After plunging into the stacks of cash to touch many of the dollar bills individually, Mr. Romney boarded his private jet to pay a surprise visit to Switzerland.

All Borowitz fun aside, Switzerland is where the Rothschilds' conceived International Bank of Settlements is located in Basel. Romney is paying tribute to the Rothschilds world Federal Reserve System. Basel is the Federal Reserve's Federal Reserve. Our money goes from labor to Wall St. to the City of London to Basel. And there it is converted to hard assets, real things, and the cycle starts all over again because these are the guys who print and control the money supply the world over. They know it's worthless and that is why they buy hard assets with worthless money and we buy into their scheme because we are sheep that have been educated in their system.

Oh wait, this post was supposed to be funny. Sorry about that.

That is the problem with the left they hate money or people that have money.

Romney can visit his money, throw it away, or anything else he wants to do with it. It is his money he earned it

The chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, Jason Furman, recently wrote in the Washington Post that "Last year saw the largest single-year reduction in poverty since the 1960s."
