Hello blog world and hello friends, hier bin ich wieder (here I am again). Pasensiya na kayo at hindi ako nagkaroon ng panahon para mag bloghop lately. I would like to thank everybody who visited and left messages kahit ako invisible. Sunod-sunod ang dating ng aming mga bisita kaya ako naging busy, as infact our last guest from Unter Franken region just left this afternoon. I’m so exhausted dahil kuwentuhan blues kami til early in the morning at namasyal naman buong araw in four consecutive days. I desperately need a lukreng-byuti rest :crazy: so I can clearly think whom to vote this Sunday. Yup, you hear it right — election, err general election pala.
The word election means nothing to me and can not even arouse my enthusiasm to go out and vote. Honest to goodness politicians whether here in Germany or in the Philippines are the same – they are all LIARS and LEECH . So whom should I vote? The weak female leech Angela Merkel (Christian Democratic Union) or the greatest liar male leech Gerhard Schroeder (Social Democratic Party)?
The country is in trouble. Unemployment is high, the economy seems to be locked in a long, slow decline, and there is widespread unrest, especially in the depressed areas.
Things have to change, a fact that most citizens acknowledge, but who’s going to make those changes happen? Reckoning on the popularity of the man in charge and the mixed public attitude towards the female leader of the opposition, the governing party has decided that its only real chance is to call elections earlier than expected. With elections fast approaching, however, it looks like it may have made a big mistake.
Sound familiar? It should. It’s a concise description of the choice facing Germany this Sunday as the country votes between an unpopular government run by Social Democratic Chancellor Gerhard SchrÃ¶der and the only slightly more palatable prospect of a government run by his Christian Democrat (CDU) challenger Angela Merkel.
Whoever wins the general election on Sept. 18 faces some daunting economic tasks, including bringing down unemployment and tackling Germany’s burgeoning deficit. Either SchrÃ¶der or his conservative challenger, Angela Merkel, will need find a way to get people back to work in the eurozone’s largest economy to help rekindle moribund domestic demand, which has been in the doldrums for years.
