Reunification Day: the Aftermath

While Maria wonders why the Germans don’t celebrate their National Holiday and Steffi wishes they would, I have an answer to why they don’t: they can’t. They’re too busy whining about it. People my age that were teenagers or worse, kids, when the two Germanies came back together just can’t quit complaining about having to pay for rebuilding the East, supporting all those worthless Ossis, blablabla.

My advice: sit back, crack open another one of those soon to be disappearing German beers, and shut the hell up. Really. Eighteen years later, nothing’s going to change. If you think you wished you were living in the good old days, you have no idea how much I wish you did. Then you wouldn’t be here now boohooing. The government will always find new and innovative ways to steal your money, and they’ve just recently added a few new ones. The solidarity fee is nothing compared to the current attempts to fix a broke system. Whine about that.

And pretend for once that you’re an open, friendly and tolerant people when it doesn’t relate to Fussball.

  1. My goodness you’re blogging early! I do agree. It’s time for the Germans, perhaps all western nations, to evaluate themselves and their governments and take action to make real changes. The time for whining is past!

    It´s been ages that I have heard someone whining about this topic. So I can´t really agree. 🙂 And we went to the OKtoberfest on that day and there was enough celebrating going on. 😉
