Republicans can no longer lie about the US economy bc it's going gangbusters & Americans are feeling it:

"The US is growing above trend .. wages are growing faster than the rest of the inflation basket, so real disposable income is rising .. alongside this is a MASSIVE wealth effect from the stock market & the housing market .. &, all of this comes on top of healthy HH balance sheets. .. US consumption is more durable than the bears believe."
-Goldman Sachs

@KimPerales And yet #US voters aren't that keen on #biden

Perhaps it has to do with lived experience?

An der Ampel stehende Autos auf der Straße rechts überholen - ja, oder nein?

Ich reihe mich lieber ein; halte rechts überholen für ein Sicherheitsrisiko.
Und merke zudem, dass viele Autofahrer nicht wissen, dass Radfahrende das dürfen - und dann allergisch reagieren.

Was denkt ihr?

Will this be reported in the German press? I doubt it.

Interestingly, Friedrich Merz, head of the German Christian Democrats, believes that:

'The continental Europeans were not entirely blameless when it came to Brexit... We lost patience with the special role that Britain always played in European politics. We didn’t do enough to help them come to a different referendum result'!

Bittersweet for Remainers, but an indication that their/our own campaigning failings were compounded by complacency(?) in the EU about the referendum.


@stiofi@troet.cafe avatar

@mina @ChrisMayLA6

Bullshit from Merz. Britland got countless exceptions. They were never enough for the Brexiteers.

Merz is shaping up to go into coalition with fascists in the next German government.

These allies along with the conservatives in the EU are working to neutralize all social benefits of the EU.

This is the context of his misinformation.

I don't think they'll have the numbers.

@stiofi@troet.cafe avatar

@ChrisMayLA6 @mina I was kind of of that opinion as well.

But the EU is moving rapidly rightwards even without the UK.

The German is playing a significant role in this.

seems to want an alliance with 's grouping.

    In all my years working in EU politics in various policy areas, I have always had this nagging sort of fear, Yes Minister style, that the officials and the lobbyists are sharper and better informed than the politicians they're working with

    Yet the main railway lobby in Brussels - Community of European Railways (CER) - is an awful association. Incapable of putting together anything coherent and sensible. But no-one else, with any scale, is either. It's really grim

    @stiofi@troet.cafe avatar


    But that's a symptom of a structural issue isn't it?

    I had such a crazy quarter at work that my drama-watching has slowed down a lot! However, I still managed to catch a few things

    Thanks for your recommendations for #CDramas !

    I'm trying to tune my ear to Mandarin.

    I'm not much into phantasy, preferring contemporary PRC and RC soaps. Especially those with social issues content.

    Anything more to recommend like Draw the Line?

    #Famine is unfolding in Gaza today. We should not have to wait until we count the graves of children to speak its name."
