Unhappy?

Who cares? You didn’t vote for me. As a matter of fact, nobody did. Other than non-elected officials like me, that is.

Unhappy

You can’t fire me. And I don’t quit. I’m not a quiter. I’m a loser maybe, but I’ll quit when I decide to, thank you.

Germans unhappy with EU’s handling of vaccine scheme – Roughly half of Germans believe the EU has handled the coronavirus vaccine rollout badly, according to an opinion poll. It comes as separate research finds a majority want an end to the country’s lockdown…

The United Kingdom has given at least one jab to 31% of its population, while Germany has so far at least partially vaccinated 7.63% of its population (that actually means more like 3.5, of course), according to figures compiled by Our World In Data.

That is marginally above the EU average of 7.60 people for every 100.

Give The People What They Want

Not. “Never ever,” as the Germans like to say in English. It’s what Merkel & Co want that counts.

Laschet

Or maybe they used Dominion voting machines to select this guy? Jeez. This is almost as bad as back home in the Banana Republic of America.

Germany: Poll shows low support for new CDU head as Merkel successor – Armin Laschet, just elected to chair Angela Merkel’s CDU party, seems little preferred by Germans as a candidate to succeed her as chancellor in September. One pollster puts him on 12% with Bavaria’s Markus Söder on 43%.

 

As Long As The Other Third Goes First

More accurate polling results just in!

Vaccine

Coronavirus: Two-thirds of Germans willing to receive COVID vaccine – A poll has shown a large majority of people in Germany want to receive the vaccine which is due for rollout on December 27. Nevertheless, more than half of the survey’s participants were concerned about side effects.

Yeah, right. Nice try, though. Try less than one in five willing to receive the vaccination and more than 80 percent concerned about side effects instead.

More than half of the respondents — 57% — said they were concerned about the potential side effects of being inoculated.

The Polls Have Never Been Wrong Before

So don’t hesitate to believe these results.

Merkel

And if you’re interested, I’ve got some wonderful Florida swampland I can get you for a real steal. But seriously folks, the wording below is very important. “Germany’s leadership has never been higher in many countries…” The country of Germany was clearly not among those polled.

Merkel Set to Leave Office With Germany on Top of the World – As German Chancellor Angela Merkel prepares to leave office after nearly two decades in power, approval of Germany’s leadership has never been higher in many countries.

Across the 29 countries and areas that Gallup has surveyed so far in 2020, a median 62% approves of Germany’s leadership, up slightly from a median of 59% for this same group in 2019. Approval ratings are at, or top, previous record highs in 18 of the 29 countries.

 

Never Forget: Europeans Would Overwhelmingly Vote for Joe Biden

And we want to be just like them.

Europe

A majority of 11,000 residents across five countries in Europe—Germany, Italy, Spain, France and Great Britain—say they are watching the U.S. presidential election closely, and are very much in favor of Biden taking the White House Tuesday. The BVA pollster group found Germans are watching the U.S. contest most carefully, with 85 percent saying they are very interested in the the November 3 outcome compared to about 70 percent in the other four nations.

Only 8 percent of Germans said they would vote for Trump if it was them casting ballots across America in four days.

Always Look On The Bright Side Of The Worst Recession In Post-War History

A $256.15 quadrillion zillion stimulus package of their own money taken from them by their government and given back to them as a gift (to be paid back to the government by their grandchildren and great-grandchildren and so on should they ever have any) has lifted German spirits.

Berlin

Sort of. But just keep smiling through the Coronavirus stimulus party anyway, Germany.

German consumer morale improved less than expected heading into October, a survey showed on Wednesday, putting a damper on hopes that household spending in Europe’s largest economy will be strong enough to drive a quick recovery from the COVID-19 shock.

The GfK institute said its consumer sentiment index, based on a survey of around 2,000 Germans, edged up to -1.6 heading into October from an upwardly revised -1.7 in the previous month.

Trump Derangement Syndrome Vs. Coronavirus Anxiety Syndrome

Which syndrome has Germans more disturbed?

Trump

Like, duh. TDS wins hands down.

Germans fear Donald Trump more than coronavirus – Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Trump tops the list of things Germans fear the most, a new survey found.

Trump ranks number one this year on Germans’ list of fears at 53%. The US president has topped the R+V fear scale as early as 2018.

Germany Tired Of Being Admired

“China and Russia vying for second” pretty much sums this “global” poll up, people.

Germany

With runners-up like that who needs first place?

Germany by far most admired country, with US, China and Russia vying for second – global poll – Annual Gallup survey casts doubt on Mike Pompeo’s claim that the US is ‘perfectly positioned’ to lead the free world in rivalry with China

I’ve been with 1000’s of men
Again and again
They sing the same tune
They start with Byron and Shelley
And jump on your belly
And bust your ballon

Aye!
Tired, tired of playing the game
Ain’t it a freakin’ shame
I’m so…
Let’s face it everything below the waist is kaput!

Zero-Sum Red Alert: Number Of German Millionaires Rising!

Germany is not only 1) a society based on envy, 2) Germans think that anyone else’s gain is automatically someone else’s loss and 3) they expect the wealthy to be punished for being wealthy. If they failed to be punished, then that would only encourage others to become wealthy too.

Money

World Wealth Report: Germany’s dollar millionaires on the rise – The number of Germany’s dollar millionaires rose by 100,000 in 2019, according to the World Wealth Report. The US had the biggest upturn, although the coronavirus crisis could change the upward trend.

PS: A new groundbreaking study published in the American Psychological Association Journal Emotion has just discovered that, on average, the more income someone makes, the happier they are.

Just Like In The Good Old USA

Opinion: Germans rally behind Merkel amid coronavirus crisis.

Corona

A recent poll shows that Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives have seen a spike in popularity as Germany battles the coronavirus pandemic. This illustrates that our democracy is stable, says DW’s Jens Thurau.

It’s the same in the US, right? Everyone in America rallies behind the President of the United States amid the coronvirus crisis there, don’t they?  It’s just what one does. Citizens forget party politics, petty personal hysterics and even the Trump Derangement Syndrome ITSELF at times of great need like these to support their government and solve a real problem. That’s just what Americans do. And that’s what’s happening in America right now, right? Right.

By the way, the same Germans who supposedly rally behind Frau Merkel still jump at every opportunity they can get – today – to continue bashing Donald Trump with as much vehemence as they can muster. So much for today’s Sunday School sermon, Deutsche Welle.
