The March Of The Lemmings - Election Wrap-Up

The SPD / Greens and The Left parties have a majority of votes, but Peer Steinbrück (SPD) stands by his word to decline a collaboration with the Left party and forfeites the opportunity to become chancellor - fair enough. So my bets whistled west, however it is a lot worse, that we have to deal for four more years now with Angela Merkel (CDU) and her neoliberal politics meaning happy days for big enterprises, the money glitterati and the markets, whoever they are, and extended lines before soup kitchens. She was mostly elected by women and elderly people, who completely ignored the shortcomings of the last four years and follow her blindly like lemmings, because of her friendly demeanor. We all know, how these critters eventually come to grief. For me it was a certainty, that the AfD would jump over the 5% mark to enter the parliament after strong internet support. The first projection had them at 4.9 % !!! and they ended up at 4.7%. Assumed the elections were not fixed ( i am suspicious by nature and really not shure about it ) a great chance was wasted to steer politics to a in my humble opinion right direction, because they offered a real alternative to those spineless nodders in the parliament. However the good news is, that Bernd Lucke keeps on pushing - his time will certainly come, because the Euros crisis will sooner or later fall on our feet. I dearly hope CDU and SPD voters, who sniffed at the AfD and tried to defame them as right-wingers will get hurt most. This video shows Nigel Farage (foto) having an argy-bargy with Martin Schulz, president of the EU parliament. Farage is the British pendant to Bernd Lucke and meanwhile famous for his speeches as he is as Bernd not mincing matters - something we will never experience from A.Merkel. That bloke Martin Schulz used to be an book dealer, before he became mayor of the provincial town of Würselen, where he ruined the finances with a waterpark. Usually parties send politicians to Brussels to get rid of them and how he made it to the top i don't know, but his staff comprises a head clerk, an assistant head clerk, a number of assistants and advisers, four spokesmen, translators, a speechwriter, a commodity pool operator, a valet and a chauffeur - all in all 38 people. This illustrates, what a money devouring buraeucratic monster the EU in Brussels is and i certainly don't want to be governed by them - period. As i write coalition talks are still underway and i don't care with whom Angela Merkel goes to bed.
