Home Truths (author unknown)

  • You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

  • What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

  • The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

  • You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

  • When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

STOP BLAMING THE GERMANS

Southern Europe lies prostrate before the German imperium

I have rarely read such a load of drivelous, rancid, nationalistic bilge. Can you pls get something straight:

A) Germany has GIVEN BILLIONS AND BILLIONS of euros to the poorer regions of Europe over the last four or so decades.

B) Nothing OBLIGED us to do it; it was a compulsion driven by guilt from the war and a desire to bind Europe together so it would never happen again.

C) NOBODY LEFT ALIVE is now guilty for the war. They are ALL DEAD.

D) The Germans are FED UP paying out vast sums to feckless, idle, non tax-paying and usually venal governments. They have put their OWN house in order and humbly request that the rest do the same.

E) Of course the rest can do what the HELL THEY LIKE as they are sovereign countries (Ha, Ha – see Greece, Italy etc) but IF these feckless, idle people want OUR money then there are CONDITIONS.

F) They do NOT HAVE TO TAKE OUR MONEY. They can do their own thing and leave us alone. Now THAT would be a fine thing for us.

G) IF you are going to continually take our money then you accept the conditions. Otherwise get on with it yourself. Stop whinging and for God’s sake stop this “Nazi” stuff. It is INCREDIBLY MORONIC. The Germans would like NOTHING MORE than to stop having to give you money to bail you out of your own greed, idiocy and incompetence.

H) The Germans have sod all oil and other raw materials. All they have earned is through their own EDUCATION, WORK and DOING THINGS RIGHT. We are not Supermen: just humans like you. DO AS WE DO IF YOU WANT TO SUCCEED. If not, then DO YOUR OWN THING but NOT WITH OUR MONEY.

In other words, Mr journalist, your article is a load of drivel. We in Germany have NO WISH to impose ANYTHING on ANYONE, but IF you want our money then there are conditions. Do you know of ANY giver of money who does not attach some conditions, except a doting parent? Do you want us to give billions with NO conditions? Is THAT it?

This crisis has been caused by IDIOT POLITICIANS. For example, France has not set a balanced budget since NINETEEN-NINTY-FOUR. It is no wonder they are bankrupt, but it is NOT GERMANY’S FAULT.

That plebian Greeks and/or Italians can be moronic, I can understand. The real culprits are their own feckless, greedy and incompetent politicians. But the latter manage to deflect the blame elsewhere of course, and Germany is a good scapegoat. But YOU, Mr Journalist, YOU should know better than to peddle this drivel.

I am a banker and I deserve shooting.

A banker has no answer …….

Nice to see a journalist refusing the usual bullshit from the guilty.

Great stuff.

Crisis? What crisis?

Why don’t politicians tell the truth?

You can blame Osborne if you like, but the British public also has to take some blame. They didn’t protest while Brown was pursuing his moronic borrow and spend binge and at the slightest sign of “austerity” they whinge even more.

“Cuts”? The “cuts” are insignificant compared to what is really needed. VAST sums have to be cut from benefits and indeed from most other areas: quangoes, advisors, consultants, H&SE, the EU and so on.

Otherwise we are finished. Why are politicians unwilling to do this? Because the public A) understands nothing about national economics (despite knowing you can’t endlessly spend more than your income) and B) expects a magic solution and therefore C) Any government doing what is really necessary (which is going to be VERY painful) will be politically punished, and in the UK’s case involve handing back power to the very same party that caused the problem in the first place.

The British (and above all Scottish Labour Party voting fodder) public will vote Labour in at the next election in the hope of the latter, and things will get WORSE.

It is not looking good, but it will be even worse elsewhere, in France for a start.

 The bizarre thing about about this crisis is the endless stream of ministers and unelected morons in Brussels claiming the crisis is over or improving whereas MUCH worse is yet to come.

SCAPEGOAT GERMANY – AGAIN

Germany’s prudence is Europe’s poison – Telegraph (Jeremy Warner)

AMAZING!! How everyone wants to blame Germany! SORRY MATE – Germany put its house in order 10 years ago and is NOT obliged to pay for everyone else’s idiocy. We in Germany are ALSO ordinary people, not supermenschen.  What WE have done YOU can do, but you need to start borrowing less, paying your taxes, studying and working harder and longer and retiring later.  WE do not expect anyone ELSE to bail us out and therefore SO SHOULD YOU NOT.

“The spending cuts planned in Berlin by finance minister Wolfgang Schäuble to balance the budget a year early will make it impossible for others to grow.”

TOUGH. So they don’t grow. Let the economies stagnate for a bit; they are still FAR above the level of billions of people in the world. There is NO easy answer to this problem of decades of binge borrowing by moronic politicians (see France -> NO BALANCED BUDGET since 1994). If you abandon “Germany’s” remedy, you borrow even MORE, which will lead to hyperinflation and massive civil unrest.

If you want to do a Greece, Italy, Spain or Portugal, Jeremy, I suggest you go there and do it and leave us in Germany alone. We DO NOT WANT more inflation thank you.

“it would be hard to think of a country in ruder economic health than Germany. Buoyant exports combine with record-low levels of unemployment to produce something close to a model economy. Furthermore, it’s the only major advanced economy expected to see some fall, as a percentage of GDP, in gross national indebtedness this year.”

You’d think this would be a model to COPY not to CRITICIZE, wouldn’t you!!!!

And as it happens, all is NOT rosy. Wages and incomes are depressed compared to five years ago; many people are stuggling to pay the bills; more jobs are temporary and/or part-time and so on. We are having to cope. OTHER Europeans must LIVE WITHIN THEIR MEANS, not within GERMANY’S means.

As for “hard to think of an economy …” you clearly have not heard of Switzerland. NOT in the EU, FREQUENT REFERENDUMS by the moronic plebs, MASTER of its own fate, HARD-WORKING, LIVING WITHIN its means and so on.

The EU is destroying Europe and I hope to God the Germans start realizing this soon or we are finished. And the MEPS refuse to cut costs!! STAGGERING.

The Queen’s Question

“Why did nobody see it coming?”

Many DID see it coming, especially those involved in it.

So your question, M’am, is indeed naive.

“Why didn’t anyone do anything to prevent it?” would be a better question, to which the answer is:

– Those creating the problem were doing too well out of it to give a toss.

– The THREE THOUSAND people working for the FSA are presumably idiots – one has to ask what their point was – or is. Or did one or two raise doubts and then get told to keep their gobs shut?

– Gordon Brown studied history at university and had not a clue about management, finance, economics or indeed much else.

– His fawning acolytes, including the fairly odious Balls, did nothing either during thirteen years of binge, boom and humungous bust. This total failure  was a combination of not daring to stick their head over the parapet, being cowards (the same thing) and incompetence.

I have my own question: “What % of the truly guilty have been punished in any way?”

To which the answer is – at a guess (and probably vastly inflated) – 4%.

The Lurcher ….

I will not lurch - yet .....

I will not lurch – yet …..

I read this morning that some Muslim women medics are refusing to bare their arms in accordance with the new NHS guidelines about preventing the spread of MRSI & e-coli. It is apparently against their religion and culture to bare any part of themselves apart from their face. And it seems that they are “getting away with it”.

What is Cameron doing about THAT? Or must people’s risk of picking up lethal infections in hospital increase even more than they are already? Will people die on the altar of lunatic PC?

One bit of good news: Theresa May intends to take us out of the ECHR. Fine, but I’ll believe it when I see it.
