No thanks to Poland. Not after their anti-EU rhetoric, religious craziness, CIA torture prisons and so on.
And why not? Greece does not belong into the Euro-zone because they have falsified their papers. Corruption, cheating, nepotism and tax evasion is Greek national past time after all. Greece does not belong into EU either - what other EU country does have 10% of its population as civil servants? Even Bulgaria is better than that. I think Greece better fits as a province of Turkey.
Personally, I think EU should consist of France, Germany, Benelux, Austria, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and maybe, just maybe, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. That's it.
What exactly makes curly brackets inherently not dumb? They are non-indicative and typing them on many keyboard layouts that are not en-US is quite uncomfortable.
Eckhard, die Russen sind da!
The majority of SED leftovers actually went to east-CDU. And now we have an ex FDJ secretary for propaganda as a chancellor. I'd take Gysi instead anytime.
led by the leftists, who were created from the remaining parts of the totalitarian SED that governed the GDR
The worst lie is a half truth. The left party was created as a fusion of PDS (itself a successor of SED, true enough) and WASG. Now WASG never had anything to do with DDR, being a party of disillusioned former social democrat party members from West Germany. This way the majority of the left party is just what SPD used to be once upon a time, but with the additional bonus of Gregor Gysi - a brilliant orator.
And no, Germany is not a colony. Germany is a vassal state.

Since Hobbits don't live in Africa, I guess they are fine.
It would be very short sighted too only look at the USA when it comes to history, even a relatively recent one.
We had this "better world" 130ish years ago. It was not better, addicts were becoming a huge problem for the society - the actual reason drugs became illegal. And yes, there still was a war in Afghanistan.
I can understand where you are coming from when you talk about Assange, but Kim Schmitz? That fraudster? Seriously? That guy started as a script kiddie taking the credit for work of real hackers and later stock fraud and other investment scams. And all the time he's been an attention whore of the worst kind.
Mod parent +1 "Manly".
Yes, and it is basically one of the very few examples where prices actually went down over time. The other example would be air fares but I can't really think of anything else that actually became cheaper.
