    Ah, but those are damnes Socialists. Never mind that their citizens in many of the nations of the EU now have a living standard superior to that in the US. Never mind that they are graduating more engineers and scientists that is the US. Never mind that there balance of trade is far better than ours. They are {{{{{SOCIALISTS}}}}}}, and all bound for hell.

    Our nation, the US seems no longer capable of recognizing success.

    Germany belongs to a European Union that is collapsing before our eyes. The Germans are expected to bail out other EU members but they make fun of us?

    The world has been digging our graves for as long as I can remember and it hasn't happened yet. While we are in dire straights, we have the mechanisms to "right the economic ship", the Krauts don't. They're chained to the Euro.

    Germany Eases Restrictions on Skilled Foreign Workers | Germany | Deutsche Welle | 16.07.2008

    The cabinet on Wednesday, July 16, decided to ease restrictions on highly qualified workers, effectively opening its borders to those with university or higher qualifications from 10 new EU countries from the beginning of next year.



    German employers will from then on no longer have to show that there are no suitably qualified applicants from Germany or older EU nations in order to hire a suitable candidate from a new member country.

    German businesses have long complained of a chronic lack of highly trained workers such as engineers and computer programers.

    "Germany must take part in an international competition to attract bright minds," Labor Minister Olaf Scholz said.

    And what is the EU's balance of trade compared to ours? The number of engineers and scientists that they are graduating from their universities? The number of new patents given to their innovators? Care to go on with this?

    The number of German citizens servicing debt for other EU nations? If the Krauts are smart, and I'm not saying they are, but if they're smart they'll throw the EU overboard otherwise the rest of the EU will just drag them down. From the "Evil" Huffington Post:
    EU Debt Crisis Is 'Systemic,' According To Official's Warning
    Looks like the big European Socialist Experiment isn't working out too good is it?

    But that's probably what you want for us right? The North American Union? :lol:
