Randam Ron Paulism

Mr. Speaker, I once again find myself compelled to vote against the annual budget resolution for a very simple reason: it makes government bigger. […] We need to understand that the more government spends, the more freedom is lost. Instead of simply debating spending levels, we ought to be debating whether the departments, agencies, and programs funded by the budget should exist at all. My Republican colleagues especially ought to know this. Unfortunately, however, the GOP has decided to abandon principle and pander to the entitlements crowd. But this approach will backfire, because Democrats will always offer to spend even more than Republicans. When Republicans offer to spend $500 billion on Medicare, Democrats will offer $600 billion. Why not? It’s all funny money anyway, and it helps them get reelected. […] The increases in domestic, foreign, and military spending would not be needed if Congress stopped trying to build an empire abroad and a nanny state at home.”

Greek publisher Yiorgos Trangas has captivated a €25,000 excellent for referring to German Chancellor as a “dirty Berlin slut.”

The radio presenter used a derogative tenure on Athens-based Real FM not once though twice, in Sep and Oct of final year,the Athens News website reported.

The Greek original, “ξεκωλιάρα του Βερολίνου,” means literally “girl with an open a**hole,” according to a English-language site, though can also impute metaphorically to someone who has no shame.

After listeners complained, a Greek broadcasting authority, ESR, reprimanded Trangas this week for abusing a Greek denunciation and creation pornographic characterizations about a German chancellor. His hire will have to compensate a ensuing fine, that amounts to some-more than $33,000.

Wrists duly slapped, Trangas did not seem to be repentant.

“At 63, I’m being told that I’m a standard Balkan southerner, who is idle and a schemer. Really! I’ve been operative given we was 16! I’ve worked night and day for a half a century. So because are we told we’re idle and crooks?,” he asked on morning TV.

Trangas is good famous for his rancour of what he perceives as German imperialism over a struggling euro-zone neighbours. Back in 2010, months after a start of aroused demonstrations opposite Greek purgation measures, German magazine Der Spiegel reported on Trangas’s calls for a protest of German products and diatribes opposite “German corruption.”

More recently Trangas has resorted to Nazi stereotypes, accusing Berlin of creation Greece “a German dependency of a Fourth Reich in southern Europe,” the Spiegel noted.

Germans have been famous to Greek-bait back, however. Last year German repository Focus ran a front cover featuring a iconic Venus de statue, center finger up, a stained Greek dwindle turn her waist, underneath a headline: “Cheats in a euro family.” Ten reporters were sued for defame in Athens over a offending issue.

Yet a fight of difference might good be cramped to a media. Hundreds of Greeks a day are signing adult for German classes in Athens, Reuters reported this week – definition that they’ll shortly be means to offer a accurate interpretation of what Merkel‘s critics are job her.

This post creatively seemed during GlobalPost.
