Signs of the times. At least here in Germany. Three stories popped up all in my face today. Made me wonder about this and that. And the other thing, too.
1) Germany’s main Staatsfunk news channel ARD originally failed to report the killing of a fifteen-year old German girl by her fifteen-year old Afghan ex-boyfriend.
When pressed for an explanation, mind police management explained that they don’t usually cover murders having to do with relationships. OK. If you say so. But do you honestly believe that this would have been the case if she had killed him?
2) Berlin’s Green justice minister wants to see that Berlin’s civil servant teacher, police and judge ladies are allowed to wear hijabs (headscarves) on duty. And this despite a recent court ruling to the contrary. Damn. Next year the Greens will most likely be passing legislation to force these women to wear them, I figure.
What, me wonder? Hell yeah, me wonder. But not really. No, to be perfectly honest. Not anymore.

PS: As seen on Twitter… The hyperbolthalamus is responsible https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/759327 for the progressive brain’s steady production of liberal hype, alarmist rhetoric and hysterical doomsday forecasting.
