i just want to throw something on here that i think you should see because i feel like it's to important to go unnoticed. . it's a vid of a journalist snooping around in the european parlement. it shows what really happens there.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lyPK_8YcuY

it's in dutch but there are english subtitles. (and it's not mine btw)


especially people from greece and other country's that are an economical mess at the moment, seriously, watch it. that is why we suffer.


(American's, i'm sorry for the title. very bad choise of the one who put it on youtube i know)

It's sad that parliament members can vote for this amongst themselves. I'll never understand that. It's like having the parliament members voting themselves a pay raise (which actually happens).

status quo: those who make the rules will skew those rules in their favour

that being said... this was some shitty journalism - sensationalism at its best/worst.

they made a huge deal of things like preferential treatment of parliamentarians at the espresso bar and various lines, when really that's just a logistical need instead of something sinister. you don't want people who are supposed to be spending their time in the caucus to be caught up in massive lines getting a coffee. you'll see the same setup for diplomats at the airport (as far as security lines are concerned).

the 300 euro sign-in thing was actually a legitimate concern but again, the journalist (i'm hesitant to call him that) went about it in completely the wrong way. he acted like a tabloid reporter instead of a professional. if he had acted with some class then he might have gotten somewhere with his line of questioning.

i don't know why anyone is surprised that people in power are corrupt. its good that its being reported on more, but for some reason its forgotten about the day after its brought up. we're all comfortable with subjugation. hooray.

no, the EU is not as bad as the US. The EU is still europeans, i.e not scumbags.

I enjoy that the lack of trollface is now an acceptable form of trolling. Also, I'm interested in becoming a member of parliament

Plus, I am dutch and this poor excuse for a news organization is famous for its sensationalism and one sided reporting, kind of like fox news without the influence and money.
