For my entire life, German governments have lit money on fire with great abandon. The pandemic was a particularly insane period of spending. Among the final acts in this spree was a supplementary budget pushed through by Merkel’s government in April 2021, allocating an additional 60 billion Euros for pandemic extravagances. The money was to come from debt, and it ought to have violated our constitutional debt ceiling rules. Because Covid qualified as a scary emergency, however, these rules did not apply.
I just wanted to mention my very first impression of the three guys in front of the flags: they seem to be standing each one behind a trash barrel.
Someone needs to make a downfall video meme of this. “Mein fuhrer... the windmills...” “We cannot pay for the windmills with covid funds. Our government is kaput.”
It is good to see reality catching up with the climate cult. I can only hope and pray that the same occurs in USA. We, unfortunately, do not have the same debt limit regimen that you have in Germany so our ability to spend on almost anything (open borders, green fantasies, etc..) seem virtually unlimited.
So nice for you to be a bringer of joyful news for once Eugyppius. 😁
No surprise here. Covid was the warm up for climate change. Had to see how far the fearporn would push the sheeple. Very far.
Is it any wonder AfD is gaining in polularity? another 2 years of this clown show and they may not need a coalition partner, they could win an outright majority
I'm surprised the funds didn't go towards Zelinski's real estate investments.
Excellent news! In the UK we have public administrators that openly defy the elected politicians! Those elected politicians have incurred vast debt with half baked ideas, on the basis that some things - like EHCR, 'net zero(?)', railways from nowhere to nowhere and other unicorns - which can never, ever be changed.
Still, it is just tax cash. Who cares? Not Government!
it is "their cash" to do as they please.
We, the little workers, have no say. If we complain, we are racist or violent or spreading hate.
"All of this sounds boring, I know..."
life's most basic truth is "what goes around, comes around."
what a cheering humiliation story. not boring one little bit. i'll gladly read tidbits like this every day, if you get 'em. sure hope you do.
Even worse, Germans will also pay for the illegal eurobonds that the EU will issue to fund Ukraine.
You are stuck with these guys till 2025??? That sounds cruel almost
Thanks for this - would never see it otherwise, and it's an important one.
I think this is where the great meltdown of the American Empire begins: money. There are already signs of much tighter purse strings in the UK, although the targets so far are easy ones. The knife fight is inevitable, however. As the Empire has only one justification, i.e.: money, this is a very serious problem for our rulers.
As bad as this predicament may appear, I’m sure they’ll find a way to make things even worse.
Aaah, the sweet, sweet schadenfreude. My heart is warm.
Not to worry - I'm sure some new emergency (war, pestilence, Skynet taking over) will appear, providing a convenient opportunity for more unlimited spending
