    Ah, that’s why you Anglo-Saxons are calling it the “stock market” — because you give your employees the stocks if they don’t multiply your stocks by buying and sellings stocks, or stocks of stocks, raising the value of your stocks and then, all they can afford to eat is vegetable stock …

    In most countries of the world, only their Federal Reserve Banks are allowed do make money.
    The citizens and the companies take or receive money …

    Yes, jerks do come in all political stripes and I am also sure that every political party has some jerks as active members. But that is not the point.
    Neoliberalism demands less rules and less controls. Nothing should stand in the way of someone on its way to success.
    How does this thinking impact the driving style? Well, most of the people on the roads are in a hurry on their way to somewhere. Because of that, there must be rules to keep the traffic flowing and to avoid accidents. These rules are the same for everyone, because everbody has the same rights.
    But with neoliberalism, those rules hinder my personal success, because I have to get to some very important place for my career. Those rules are unfair to me, because I am a superior driver and the others are stupid, because my car can go faster than the other’s cars, because I am more important. I am the American Dream, I am successful on my way to getting rich, but all the other stupid, lazy losers are in my way to my personal success. Therefore it is my right to ignore some rules. I may, no, I must be an egoistic jerk, because my personal success is more important than any other’s success.

    This driving style can be found all over the world in most cities. It is the neoliberal one, formerly known as egoistical behaviour. Thanks to the big companies and their stooges Ronald Reagan, Margret Thatcher, and others around the world for morphing the society to monetarism. There are many more stooges today supporting the dictatorship of the rich, so you have a large number of #%&§!s to be thankful to for living in this kind of society.

    “There was something called %#&!§” does not help me, I need it now …

    Wrong.
    If half of the new born babies dies in their first year and the other half dies at the age of 60, then the average lifespan would be 30, too.
    1+9=10 and 5+5=10, but you can not revert the conclusion by saying “when the sum is 10, then the two summands must be 5”.

    I like measuring temperature in Celsius: water freezes and ice melts at 0°C. That number is easy to remember, and when the weather report says “temperature will fall below zero”, everybody knows what that means to the roads and ponds. The other fixed point is: water boils at 100°C. That is also a number easy to remember when cooking or making coffee.

    And by the way: snowgirl neither said “Celsius” nor “Fahrenheit”, just “32°”, so you are all just guessing about Mark’s joke … Maybe, she ment 32° Kelvin?

    Why should 180.0000000 be more “precise” than 100.0000000?
