Is It Really Over?

Finished? Endlich vorbei? Finito and all that? For real?

 Das Votum der Bürger in Baden-Württemberg ist eindeutig: Stuttgart 21 soll gebaut werden. Das führt zu Erleichterung einerseits, Ärger andererseits. Und Politikern, die sich die Sache schönreden.

I don´t have to hear about Stuttgart 21 demonstrators anymore? I don´t have to wonder anymore about why I´ve never understood how people can go ballistic about rebuilding a city´s freakin´train station underground as if it were some unspeakably important social issue? Honest? You´re not shitting me here? The war is finally over and Johnny can come marching home?

Well then let us all stand and sing together!

Mine eyes have seen the glory
of the coming of the Lord;
he is trampling out the vintage
where the grapes of wrath are stored;
he hath loosed the fateful lightning
of his terrible swift sword;
his truth is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

  1. It’s a classic case of the media and elite trying to lead opinion. Put to a vote, the public wanted precisiely the opposite of the think being amplified by the self-declared “pupulist” Greenies.

  2. Hermannator,

    Not so fast, young man.

    At the end of the article:

    “Critics of Stuttgart 21 say protests against the project will continue.”

    It ain’t over until that 40% also say it’s over, I guess.

  3. Green Dreams of Stuttgart 21 nights:

    Come back
    Baby come back
    Baby come back
    Baby come back
    This is the first time until today
    That you have run away
    I’m askin’ you for the first time
    Don’t really know if I can stay.

  4. When will those jokers realize that there IS NO NATURAL ENVIRONMENT in Europe to “restore”? Even in the wild, you’re not likely to be more than a 10 km hike to the nearest town or train station. In global environmental terms, the continent is basically a parking lot.
