I’ve become a real fan of the Swiss. Seriously. First they rejected the Olympics, and now a high-pay cap. Amen. Europe needs more of this.
Meanwhile, a town in Seattle, just passed a $15/hour minimum wage law. I’ll watch with measured amusement:
Spiegel: Merkel demands EU Treaty change to give Commission control over national budgets
Der Spiegel reports that, in a meeting with EU Council President Herman Van Rompuy last week, German Chancellor Angela Merkel set out her proposals for giving the EU greater powers over eurozone members’ national budgets, a move which would require EU Treaty change. Merkel will reportedly insist on legally enforceable contracts between the Commission and individual member states, setting out their obligations for maintaining budgetary discipline and improved competitiveness. In return, Germany could agree to a eurozone budget which would amount to tens of billions. Finally, the President of the Eurogroup would become a “Euro Finance Minister”.
Spiegel Online cites Axel Schäfer, deputy-chair of the SPD’s parliamentary group as saying that “the SPD will not support any settlements if Merkel conducts parallel negotiations with Britain’s David Cameron over the transfer of EU competences back to member states.” Schäfer also warns that the SPD will not support an EU Treaty changes that trigger referenda in individual member states.

At what point can we speak about immigration and race without being denounced? We’ve been trained to denounce one another. It’s terrifying, reminiscent of how the communists trained the populations they enslaved to denounce one another as capitalists or saboteurs.
When a German public school only has three German students left, is that a good thing? And what should we think when Peter Sutherland of Goldman Sachs says that European ethnicity must be “undermined” through mass immigration?
Most American’s don’t know that there’s a backlash underway in Europe against the mass immigration imposed on them by the EU, and the paralyzing political correctness imported from the United States. Some MPs voice the backlash starting at 26:00.
