No Rhymes About Wealth

A translation of two posts I wrote in german, „Ungereimtes Zeug“ and „Reichtum“ (the links to other sites are only there).

No rhymes… oOor better said (prosaic) no lyrics

That’s the only thing coming to my mind, when I think about the actual politics of my home state. Because I am not as artistic in rhetoric*… as our chancellor usually is, I’m not able to hold endless lectures about issues of naturalness. Charity, in this case: „Nächsten-Liebe“ , the german word can be translated with „love for your next person“, is an issue for instance, held pretty high by the christian (conservative) parties of our government.

There she was probably a little over the top shot.

Mrs. Merkel’s next persons… she forgot to think about the people of her state. Looks fine here, but there are problems with priorities. Before we can think about helping the others effectively, we should have solved some of them.

But for conclusions like that you need a little logic.

What we can not expect fom a woman, who has first studied physics… and then decided to enter a professional career, which had benefitted relatively little from what she once studied.

How about „Learning, for Life“ ?

*Angelas oratories are entertaining enough, so the audience won’t fall asleep. Refreshing, even when it takes some time to fill all those (word-) soap bubbles with warm air. Only, when we try to scan them for content… splash. Very fine mist**. Tiny drops of soapy liquid, and… air.

** we know the word „Mist“ in german too… but it doesn’t mean the same as fog here. Our „Mist“ is a mixed heap of crap from farm animals***.

***and: Yes, of course I recommend to read the book „Animal Farm“.

Wealth

While talking about relativity of issues (studies or statistics, who cares?), I should mention, that the growing capital of the rich people, as well as the growing numbers of the poor (the media had new statistics)… that’s an issue as old as the invention of money itself. Some people even predict the „Dying Bed Of Capitalism“ (dunno, if this is a good phrase in english, just translated the words 😉

Wealth is relative too, from the viewpoint of a broke refugee… a little middle class comfort looks like heaven.

Or, what our politicians receive as pension, a senior citizen can only dream of an old-age pension like that. What our government calls wealth is only peanuts, when I compare it with this political billionaire, Mr. Trump in America.

Everything is relatively relative.

The report which I linked with Donald T. shows us: He can not buy everything for his money, see Megyn Kelly. The star presenter of a tv channel already had a discussion with him, and he didn’t want to make this experience one more time.

Notice: She has studied political science. He however, is only a kind of political clown (= a clear sign for this fact is, that he has recruited Sarah Palin for his team))).
