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

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.

Pension and other cuts
Hey you - we don't have any money left. We have too little young people paying for too many older people. We don't have any money for paying medical support for everyone at highest standard and people who are today working won't get as much pension as todays pensioners get.
What's the news about this?
I mean, for what - exactly were people running on the streets? Here in Cologne I could hear the demonstration chants in my flat. I know many people who were out protesting. I can understand them.
But I also can understand the government, because they don't see any other solution that cutting where cuts are possible. And as long noone is able to have a better vision (or to at least have a vision), I can't protest against what they do since I see it's necessary to do a lot of things.
I can protest for them not doing the right things, for not doing all the things I wanted them to do, but I can't protest as long as I don't have any idea of a better way.
I'm not speaking about the single individuum, but about the unions who failed to show me their way of how to solve the problem. Just shouting is the wrong way and I can't support that.
