Comments on: Flush with jobs — and potential workers — Germany is stymied by this cultural quirk http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/09/30/flush-with-jobs-and-potential-workers-germany-is-stymied-by-this-cultural-quirk/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: mrkingtut http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/09/30/flush-with-jobs-and-potential-workers-germany-is-stymied-by-this-cultural-quirk/#comment-1107450 Sun, 04 Oct 2015 15:16:59 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=43813#comment-1107450 I thought German was very simple and easy language to learn the basics of. Much easier than Spanish or French, for me personally.
Everybody is different I suppose.

Then the German companies can have messages on their phones saying “Press one for German” and “Press two for ‘whatever\'”. Signs in stores with Arabic, too.

The German economy has been strong, but not for long now. It will take a lot of taxpayer money to support the “refugees” for quite a while.

Plus, the main problem will be the so-called “peaceful religion” of Islam, which may lead to changes in the attitude of German citizens when the thousands of “refugees” start DEMANDING that their sharia laws be followed according to their religion. So long, Oktoberfest!!!!!

Those looking for work and a life in Germany are expected to learn German. And the writer (or Reuters editor) deems this a “cultural quirk.”

Ever try learning Arabic?

For the past 300 years, there has been no reason for anyone outside of Germany to learn German. Asking the global economy to learn German now…. is like asking Google users to learn Fortran if they want to search for cat videos. No point.

Does Reuters make a habit out of hiring people that made a living writing headlines and photo captions for the Sun? Just wondering? This articles strikes me as ethnocentric, written by someone on the “inside,” an English-speaker who dismissively looks at the study of other languages. That is rather sad, considering that she is working on assignment in Berlin as a journalist. Rather “insular.” How does the author communicate? May I suggest working on assignment in Bainbridge, Georgia.

What a wonderful conspiracy of left-wing writers and analysts we have here! Working to destroy yet another European culture? Sarcastic clap.

How’s that for a turn around for you?
All of these lazy cowards leaving their country because they don’t have the will of the people to overturn their corrupt countries and get rid of those making their lives terrible. Change your own countries. Amazing how the Western countries seem to thrive so much better than the rest of the world. Just a bunch of coward economic opportunists are busting down the gates of countries which have made themselves great. Fix your own countries, and these stories become something historical, and never seen again.
