The Irrational Actor

Rich Germans have too much money:
A group of rich Germans has launched a petition calling for the government to make wealthy people pay higher taxes.

The group say they have more money than they need, and the extra revenue could fund economic and social programmes to aid Germany's economic recovery.
Waiting to see if that one's a hoax, but the Germans have a thing for perversity.

Some Germans also have a thing for not having their heads up their asses.

Down at the end of the article one richie expresses surprise that their wealth-tax demonstration didn't draw more people.

If it's sincere, good luck Germans!

Welp, Peter Vollmer is a Twilight Zone character who is a Hitler wanna-be.

This P. V. (2/3 or so down) must be some sort of perf. art weasel.

The tossing of fake banknotes is a little Magic Xian-y though.

Or: The result of 60 yrs. of de-Nazification & anti-fascism. Maybe.

Is that subchli I smell?
