Avion: I am still hoping for CDU. All the red green coalition wil do is more taxes, more useless laws more social security.
Actually, the red/green government is lowering
taxes for the first time; The record increases
in taxation took place during the conservative Kohl administration
Strange but true.
Avion: Also they rescued MobilCom which was a big no-no.
That´s debatable, indeed; Although France Telecom´s role in the whole affair didn´t look too bright, either.
Avion: Another thing why is there that law that u cannnot lay off people?? It makes the economy slow and workers arent there where they are needed.
Yeah, that one has taken on a life of its own in conservative mythology. Of course you can fire employees. There just are several rules about it. Some financial, some procedural. Most of these have contributed to the relatively stable social environment. It´s not all just stagnation.
Jcs17: This is great! Nice job Herta! You ugly, old, senile hag! Actually I really am happy, I just saw an article projecting the election to Stoiber. Down with the Socialist entity!
Ahem... Sorry to burst your bubble, but "we" have actually made it!
There seems to be a relatively stable majority for red/green. The SPD will even remain the largest faction in the Bundestag.
Again... so sorry!
Jcs17: I cant believe that some of you actually voted for the Greens, they were the same people protesting the US presence in Germany during the cold war, and keeping West Germany safe.
Why can´t you stop falling into the same old trap over and over again? Even back then it was a dispute about policy
, not about nationality
Germans are still deeply sympathetic for America(ns)
, but at this moment also deeply critical of Bush´s policies
. I´ve heard of americans who appear to see it quite the same way...
