În urmă cu un an, ministrul federal al muncii, Ursula von der Leyen, afirma că "sistemul german de pensii este aproape de colaps". Estimările arată că, în aproximativ 20 de ani, persoanele cu un salariu brut de 2500 de euro şi o vechime în muncă de 35 de ani vor primi o pensie de numai 680 de euro. Dată fiind situaţia, mulţi vor solicita ajutor social.
Nuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu! (Nota votacului imbecil)
Anyway, we learned that Germany's GDP contracted by a steeper than expected 0.6% in Qu.4, France's GDP contracted by 0.3%, Italy's by a hefty 0.9% and the entire euro area's by 0.6% (note that these are q-o-q numbers in the euro area, not the quarterly annualized numbers generally used in the US. So to in order to get the annualized data, one has to multiply these by four – just to put the data into proper perspective).
Nuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu! (Nota cui?)
Greece is well known for its deep-seated tangle of corruption and bureaucratic inefficiency. Just as a reminder, here are a few examples: there was e.g. a state-financed hospital in Athens that employed 45 gardeners, but actually had no garden. (Vezi vreo asemanare cu Romania)? It was once worked out that if the Greek government were to shut down the state-owned railway system completely and were to simply pay the taxi fares of commuters instead, it would save a fortune. (Dar aici Nasule?) A USB stick containing the prominent names of the biggest Greek tax evaders provided to the government by the IMF simply 'disappeared' in a drawer of the finance minister's desk - too many of his political friends and cronies were apparently on it (the journalist revealing this fact was promptly charged with a criminal offense, (Si aici? Aparatorule a statului de...care?) charges that were only dropped after intense international protests). Vreo asemanare de mentalitate, poate? Am putea spune una identica? Parul lovit de capul celuia care demasca adevarul. Protejarea hotilor devastatori.
Cum? Mentalitatea de hot, furtul si coruptia, duc la faliment? Nuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu! Nota aceluiasi votac.
Cum? Noi platim furtul celora care ne "salveaza"? Nuuuuuuuuuuuu, noua ni s-au marit pensiile si salariile cu 5%, dar si taxele la dublu, sau la triplu. Jos Basescu! Dar stai! Taxele le-a marit actualul guvern. Aaaaa, asta-i altceva dom-le, ei sunt antibasisti. Dar stai putin, se pare ca nu prea mai sunt! Se reevalueaza. Nu-i nimic noi suntem, pana ne vor spune ei sa nu mai fim. (Nota din Teleorman)
