“C’mon, Helga – From Now On, We Do It In the Dark!”

| November 29, 2014

Be glad you’re not in Germany, folks. Let’s just say that the Environmental minister has some, um, interesting ideas about how to “save the planet”. Oh, and in case you’re wondering: yeah, she’s a Socialist.

The comments to the linked article make good reading.

    So, Germany’s Environment Minister is a radical Socialist? So is the head of our EPA, and they’re both nucking futz.

    Geez, did they dig up Nixon’s gas rationing idea, too? And turn down the city lights after dark to save energy? Why not just go back to a world lit only by fire?

    Someone should tell Hendricks a few things:
    A – it really won’t save the planet. The planet will just roll over and wipe us all out with some amazing disaster if it wants to.
    B – The price of oil is dropping rapidly, which will drop the price of gas at the pump (check gasbuddy for your area), because the Saudis are determined to compete against US oil shale production by undercutting US prices. They may return to 2004 levels. One financial analyst has said that’s entirely possible.
    C – That euro-cash could have been better spent on planting trees.

      Adding to #1, The planet will do what it wants, when it wants.
      To add to your #2, the Saudis are also undercutting the Russians, who are the supporters of the Iranians. What they’re doing takes $$$ out of the pockets of both.

    I’m married to a German. I really, really like the country. And the people, if you make the effort to get to know and especially if you learn the language, are some of the most generous people on earth.

    Just don’t start talking to them about politics.

    I seriously thought about retiring there after the military. It’s beautiful (pictures do NOT do it justice, especially the Alps), not a lot of crime, people respect their neighbors, etc.

    The problem is with the bat shit crazy liberal ideas and most of all, the fact that your life is run by some faceless bureaucrat in Strasbourg.

    My frau is talking about going back to Deutschland to be with the new granddaughter. I say, “safe trip…make sure you send me a postcard.”

    Sergeant Schultz…I see nothing!

    I lived in Germany as a military dependent many years ago. We had a ball, loved the place, and were absolutely delighted to go home.

    Beauty is only a light switch away.

    I dunno about the rest of you fellas, but (were I a single man, of course) if I was to find myself engaging in carnal activities with a fräulein like, say, Diane Kruger, I would insist that all the lights be on, all the windows be open, the heater running full blast, and cameras rolling to document the event. And Barbara Hendricks could (figuratively) blow me if she didn’t like it.
