Eat More Rich People!

Germans should be ashamed of themselves. Again, I mean. The amount of personal wealth just keeps on rising here – another 79 billion this past quarter – and has reached yet another historic level. The Germans, it seems, have never been richer. And this, as we all know, is a bad thing.

Haven’t you people ever heard of Umverteilung (redistribution) over here? What do you need all that damned money for? It’s not like it’s yours or anything. Well it is but it isn’t, if you know what I’m sayin’. And who says it doesn’t stink? It stinks that you still have it. What you folks need is leadership like we have now been graced with in New York City itself. You’ve already got all the tax loopholes you’ll be needing so roll up your sleeves and let’s get this party started!

Im vierten Quartal 2013 wuchs das Vermögen der privaten Haushalte in Form von Bargeld, Wertpapieren, Bankeinlagen oder Ansprüchen gegenüber Versicherungen im Vergleich zum Vorquartal um rund 79 Milliarden Euro oder 1,6 Prozent auf den historischen Höchstwert von 5,15 Billionen Euro, teilte die Deutsche Bundesbank mit.

  1. While it MAY be true that the average wealth is rising, that may not be true of the median wealth nor the mode. People below the median may well have NO, or very small, savings. And the number of homeless is on the increase; Utah decreased the number of their homeless by over 70% just by offering them accomodation. Way to go Utah, and a hint to the rest of us.

  2. Stu: Massachusetts’ solution was to put the homeless up in welfare hotels at $100 per night. They got 20,000 applications, most from out of state and Puerto Rico. At least one applicant was a level 3 sex offender from New York. The legislators are quickly passing an amendment to the law, adding that an applicant must reside in the state for six months and not be on a sex offender list.
