These 112 House Republicans voted against Ukraine aid
  • Is this supposed to be some kind of public shaming? It's not as if there weren't any reasons not to issue a blank check to Ukraine.

    A comprehensible way to view this war is: One corrupt shit-hole country, formerly part of the Soviet Unions has attacked another corrupt shit-hole country, formerly part of the Soviet Union.

    I am German and I am happy with giving the Ukraine plenty of funds and other means in order for enabling them to stop Russia expending in my general direction. I don't really see that much benefit for the US so. But thanks, every US dollar spent is about 1€ less we have to spend. Go for it.

  • Germans: what genocide?
  • As a German: I think it really is not our job to criticise Israel/the jewish people. There are about 200 other countries that are capable of voicing their opinions. I seriously doubt Hamas left Israel much of a choice, though. They are still keeping and mistreating hostages. What is Israel supposed to do? Passively standing by and watching their hostages being impregnated?

  • Greta Thunberg detained at The Hague climate demonstration
  • I always ridiculed her, although secretly I admired her determination and also agreed with her aims.

    Then she started her pro-Gaza ramblings. She clearly has no idea about history of the middle east and also can't classifiy current events. To noone's surprise as she has hardly visited school. She's also 20 now, so a full adult, she does not have this young-innocent-girl Jeanne d'Arc bonus anymore.

  • JK Rowling, Joe Rogan and Elon Musk are fuming over Scotland’s hate crime law
  • Why should Rogan and Musk be concerned about a law in Scotland? I can't be botheres to look up if Rowling lives in Scotland, but she's at least on the same island.At the minimum Rogan and Musk should mind their own business. As a German I also don't judge US gub laws, for example. None of my business.

  • Egg Rule
  • Why? Cause shops are open on sunday? Having no workers rights makes that a lot easier

    Yes. Shops being closed on Sundays is a major PITA. I have 2 days off a week. So I have to buy groceries in overcrowded shops in the evening or in overcrowded shops on Saturdays. Or I drive across the border and buy in Luxemburg, on Sundays. So the VAT I am creating stays in another country. Which is just plain stupid.

    Also: workers' rights and shops being open on Sundays aren't mutually exclusive.

  • Have you ever been to a movie so terrible that you saw people leaving the theater? Which one was it?
  • Absolutely. And I was so in love with a student of history/culture studies that I went in there twice with her. Our relationship failed after less then 6 months. So I endured this abomination of a movie twice and suffered from real bad heartache all within a year. Life isn't fair.

  • Have you ever been to a movie so terrible that you saw people leaving the theater? Which one was it?
  • Iron Sky. A lot of young chavs grabbed their beers and left the theater. Apart from a couple of minutes you can mostly see in the trailer that movie is indeed pretty shitty. The sequel is even worse. It was pretty overhyped and I suspect it hasn't aged well.

  • Not buying a shaver from Philips again..
  • I have the cheapest Philips shaver. It is pretty mid. It came with its own charger. On the shaver's side it looks like a standard ungrounded 220V female connection. But it actually is some propriety DC thingy. Very annoying. Why not just use USB-C?

  • Trickflation
  • I am not discussing if soda of any kind is more unhealthy than tea or not. You can drink as much soda as you want. Just don't bullshit yourself or anybody else. You only have one argument: "I like soda, don't take away my soda from me." It is not a good argument but it is all you've got.

  • Die Euro-Uschi zur Lage der Union Press corner

    Highlights, press releases and speeches

    Press corner

    Sehr bezeichnend finde ich ihr Chinabashing. Es ist ja nicht so, dass es an der chinesischen Wirtschaft und Regierung (gehört ja eher irgendwie zusammen) nichts auszusetzen gäbe. Da gibt es KZs in denen die Uyguren eingesperrt werden z. B. Man könnte da ja etwas dagegen sagen. Aber nein, die Euro-Uschi prangert an, dass China den europäischen Markt mit angeblich subventionierten Billig-Elektroautos überflutet.

    Inzwischen verkauft VW den ID.3 dort für 15k und den ID.4 für 20k, in Versionen, wie sie hier das 2,5fache kosten. Aber DIE überschwemmen HIER den Markt.

    Und welches "Billigauto" soll hier den Markt überschwemmen? Das billigste E-Auto ist der Dacia Spring, in China hergestellt von einer europäischen Firma, Listenpreis in D über 20k. Es ist das 17.-populärste E-Auto in D. Wow, was eine Schwemme! Und wie billig!

    Die Frau kann wirklich NICHTS!!! Es ist so einfach Mißstände in China anzuprangern. Selbst dafür ist sie zu dumm.

    Chinesische Unternehmen im Hunsrück - Party schon wieder vorbei. Die Folgen der neuen China-Skepsis für ein Dorf im Hunsrück

    Die Kritik wächst, dass China eine skrupellos expansionsorientierte Wirtschaftspolitik betreibe. Der skeptischere Blick auf Investitionen aus dem Land macht sich auch in einem kleinen Dorf im Hunsrück bemerkbar. Von Peter Sonnenberg.

    Die Folgen der neuen China-Skepsis für ein Dorf im Hunsrück

    Es war ein großer Hype. Chinesen haben ihre Unternehmen, und sich selbst und ihre Familien, im Hunsrück angesiedelt. Standort war auf dem Umweltcampus Birkenfeld. Da steht jetzt fast alles, was vorher von den Chinesen genutzt wurde leer. Es sind nur noch wenige da. Im örtlichen Blättchen liest man immer wieder von gesuchten Personen mit chinesischem Namen, die Steuerschulden haben. Häuser, vermutlich auf Pump gekauft, stehen leer. Es handelt sich um relativ alte Häuser, die alten Leuten (oder deren Erben) abgekauft wurden. Die Eigentümer sind verschwunden, die Banken wollen die Häuser verkaufen. Wenn man sie besichtigt sieht man oft, dass der letzte Besitzer 0 Arbeit oder Geld investiert hat. Alles noch wie von dem Vor-vorbesitzer zurückgelassen.

    Die ganze Region hatte sich viel von den Geschäftsbeziehungen mit den Chinesen versprochen. Der Traum ist geplatzt.
