The Rebellion spreads

Angela Merkel juicer by kaymoshusband at

Having seen anti-austerity votes take place in France, Italy, the UK, and Greece it is noteworthy that the voters rebellion has spread to the intellectual “fatherland” of austerity, Germany.

Support for the Christian Democrats dropped from 35% to 26% in North Rhine-Westphalia, with the Social Democrats set to return to power with the Greens.

It is the Christian Democrats’ worst result in the state.

Analysts say many voters rejected Mrs Merkel’s tough line on fiscal discipline as a cure for state debt.

If this has spread to Germany, the one state that is arguably benefiting the most from its widespread implementation one could anticipate the policy is going to be changing soon…well, maybe.

But by all means, feel free to demand the same changes here Republicans.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
