Lilli Marleen

Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

You look for the Song Lilli Marleen?

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Pensions sink
Oh really? I mean, how come?
Okay - we have more older people and less younger folks.
Okay - we have contantly decreasing numbers of newborns.
Okay - we have a lot of unemployed for the last 10 years and no idea, how to handle them.

But pensions? Why do they have to sink, I did pay for it month by month.

Be serious, please! As I heard last Saturday: Has anyone, besides Norbert Blüm (Die Renten... sind sischer), really believed that people of my age (born 68) will get any pensions paid by the state? I beg your pardon! I remember saying from my earliest youth that I will have to save money for my own pensions since state won't give me any. So - did anyone really believe, they were safe?

And now? Now we're punishing the government for telling us the truth. Great move!
I mean, I could work with wanting to punish them for not having made a better plan the last 20 years.
I could live with punishing them for trying too much and doing too little, but punishing them for telling the truth?
Folks, that's ridiculous.
