30 July, 2010 (19:01) | political trade, wiki | By: Aerar

(German version published on 5 May, 2010) In my first drafts for a political program (German) I have examined guidelines (German), which should give the program a direction and which could serve as a basis for concrete political answers. In the beginning there will be no complete set of guidelines and especially in special themes […]

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 […]

(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

(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 […]

Too good to be bribed

(German version published on 21 January, 2010) Somehow I consider my proposal to regulate donations to parties is getting more important. The taz writes in its online version: “Die Förderung der erneuerbaren Energien ist ein gesellschaftlich notwendiges, sinnvolles und richtiges Ziel”, sagt die Bundesgeschäftsführerin der Grünen zu den Vorwürfen, auch ihre Partei schrecke vor der […]

Bought, donated or funded?

12 April, 2010 (11:53) | parties, political trade, proposals | By: Aerar

(German version published on 20 January, 2010) In the end that is the question in the discussion about the donation of a hotel owner to the FDP (German). The suspicion of purchasability is weighting heavily as it is destroying democracy. And it is a problem for everyone involved and for the tax payer as well […]

Three Strikes… and Jung is out

(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 […]

Taking it easy

(German version published on 24 November, 2009) In the case of Nikolaus Brender (German), whos position as chief editor of the ZDF is put into question presumptive because of reasons of party related politics, shortly ago 35 leading experts of constitutional law wrote an open letter (German) in which they stated their concern against a […]

Political dolefulness parliamentarymade

(German version published on 30 Oktober, 2009) Today Christine Lieberknecht (CDU) has been elected as President of Thürigen but just in the ithird ballot (German). Naturally this reminds to the debacel of Heide Simonis in Schleswig-Holstein. That in both cases women have been affected seems to be accidently as in both cases the political situation […]

(German version published on 28 Oktober, 2009) In my quarter there are only few parking spaces and one of these few is since more than a month widely marked by two signs as an area of absolute parking restriction. Considering the lack of parking facilities the residents soon did not take the restriction too serious […]
