Those whom the gods would destroy.

Germany shows signs of shifting left, if the article linked to here is correct. Who knows about that but the one thing you CAN be sure of is that the moronic German electorate will not vote for anyone remotely interested in advancing their interests over those of a gazillion Africans and Muslims who are slowly but surely turning the Muttiland into a Viking version of the caliphate. The Vikings came from Germany, didn't they?

Anyway, here's a sample of what made Hans and Hilda swoon:

The surprising swing to the left for Germany's (formerly) centrist and fiscally prudent Grand coalition threatens to trigger a prolonged phase of political uncertainty in Germany, because as Bloomberg notes, "the victory of Walter-Borjans and Esken, who favor taxing the rich, boosting welfare spending and abandoning Germany’s long-standing policy of a balanced budget, will certainly weaken pro-government forces."[1]
So it looks like Germany will soon join the ranks of arithmetic-challenged nations like, oh, the United States. Party like there's no tomorrow, kids. Universal franchise = fiscal stupidity. This is the fiscal version of what sailing ships sometimes encounter, namely, being "in irons" or "stuck." At least with sailboats there's a way to break out of this state; in modern, welfare-state polities there is not.

The purpose of this post is to point out that this pie-in-the-sky garbage is straight out of the Cinderella School of Political Economy that will transform German to the state Greece was in before it sold its harbors and the Acropolis to Huawei and the No. 5 People's Liberation Army Savings and Loan and Steam Tractor Factory. Most deliciously of all, should anyone suggest that this stupidity should be abandoned, what cry will echo through the lands but that of "austerity!!"?

Crazy stuff is adored by the leaders and the voters alike. However, taking away the punch bowl at 0600 after a loooong night of partying is, well, being a real killjoy.

Well, what can you expect from a nation whose chief executive says out loud in public that freedom of speech will have to be curtailed in order for Germans to stay free? To strong applause from her peeps in the Bundestag, let it be said.

And that, pilgrims, sad to say, is not a genius stroke of satire on my part. State of the art Western political leadership. Complete swill. Turbocharged betrayal.

What are they putting in the water???

Shifting LEFT? Their cities are becoming migrant sh*tholes, their women assaulted and raped, their kids beaten up... and they're shifting LEFT?

It's stupefying. Confucius spoke of the need to call things by their right names. Needless to say, NOTHING is called by its right name now.
