Re critique

11 May, 2010 (19:12) | media, particulars, parties, political trade | By: Aerar

(German version published on 31 March, 2010) I have to admit that a certain FDP bashing currently (not without course) is quite modern. Therefore one needs to be careful not simply to call “Boooh” by reflex if the party’s name is mentioned and of course should not believe in everything shown on TV. So I […]

FDP leader Westerwelle in favour of minimum wages

29 April, 2010 (11:54) | particulars, political trade | By: Aerar

(German version published on 13 February, 2010) “Man muss in Deutschland sagen dürfen, dass derjenige, der arbeitet, mehr haben muss als derjenige, der nicht arbeitet.” (My translation: “It have to possible in Germany to say that those who work need to earn more than those who do not work”) said Westerwelle at a greeting of […]

Still about 1360 days

28 April, 2010 (20:02) | particulars, parties, political trade | By: Aerar

(German version published on 4 February, 2010) At 27 Oktober 2009 the 17th period of the German Bundestag began lead by the parties of CDU/CSU and FDP under Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel. It is usual to evalutate the government’s work after the first 100 days have passed. This time should be enough for the partners […]

Three Strikes… and Jung is out

10 March, 2010 (22:57) | abroad, economy, federal states, media, particulars, political trade | By: Aerar

(German version published on 27 November, 2009) Currently there are some things which are happening in politics and some themes which already have been  discussed before have been decided now. Therefore most topics have already been dealt with intensely so beside of a short statement I rather link to articles I read somewhere else. (In […]

We can play it differently

3 February, 2010 (22:19) | particulars, parties | By: Aerar

(German version published on 24 Oktober, 2009) Now we know what the new Cabinet of the coming black and yellow government will look like. I will state comments of myself at the end of this post but there are overviews and comments for example also at SPON (German), Stern online (German) with a page for […]

The Tauss incident

6 March, 2009 (16:40) | homeland security, law & order, media, particulars | By: Aerar

Yesterday it came out that the Public Attorney’s Office in Karlsruhe has started an investigation against the SPD member of the Bundestag Jörg Tauss caused by the suspicion of owing pornographic material showing children. Here are some news topics: Kinderpornoverdacht gegen SPD-Abgeordneten Jörg Tauss (german) Büros des SPD-Abgeordneten Tauss durchsucht (german) Kinderporno-Fund bringt SPD-Politiker in […]

Boom: economic leaders

22 November, 2008 (14:44) | abroad, economy, particulars, series | By: Aerar

The economy is booming. In the near future a long and solid boom can’t be stopped. If you don’t jump on the train now you will loose contact very soon. And especially the train service has set the basics for future development. The management will abdicate higher salaries in the next year (german). This will […]

Pangs of conscience

4 November, 2008 (15:26) | elections, federal states, particulars, political trade | By: Aerar

Within a political system dominated by parties a delegate often is in the situation to serve his party and to give his vote for topics he disagrees to serve a higher goal. Nevertheless it is a good thing when a delegate makes use of his personal political mandate and in important cases makes decisions following […]

No X for Ms. Y

3 November, 2008 (15:35) | elections, federal states, particulars, political trade | By: Aerar

Now it happened. While the world of Andrea Ypsilanti still looked well in the morning and the CDU more and more worried (german) about a change of government in Hessen the house of cards she build as option for the coming change collapsed. There are now four delegates who announced not only to deny their […]

More like Peer

28 October, 2008 (16:07) | finance, media, particulars, political trade | By: Aerar

Yesterday night the German minister of finance Peer Steinbrück was a guest in the TV talk “Beckmann”. The cool strategian was quite convincing in the talk lasting about an hour. With his quiet and inarrogant behaviour he talked about the status of the ongoing crisis at the financial markets without unnecessaryly blaming others. Thereby he […]
