What fricking bullsh1t.
Why dont they save time and rename the country, hand over the keys, and stop pretending there’s still a true Europe in the historical Anglo/Germanic/Nordic sense.
It’s a good thing the throngs of invaders to the US actually contribute more than they take. That way we don’t have to use taxpayer money for their freebies. /s
How true dat.
So the whole ‘we’re importing them to work to replace the Europeans who aren’t having babies’ argument falls apart if you HAVE TO RAISE TAXES TO SUPPORT THEM!
At least they’re being honest enough to admit it.
We just borrow/print fake money to cover the cost.
So I guess these people will be sincerely and eternally grateful for the handouts that they will get and that the Finns have their own truly needy (seniors, veterans, the disabled, the mentally ill) fully looked after or am I mistaken on one or even both fronts?
Total self destruction....insane.
That’s a neat trick. Governments and politicians screw up the world then go pluck money out of citizen pockets to cover their failure. Politicians/governments should be paid according to job success and fined for failure.
Is there any manhood left in Europe?
“In return for the trickery u indulged in in order to succeed, you must hereby finance the invasion of your country.”
What’s weird about it?
They’re admitting up front that the ‘refugeed’ won’t be able to pay their way. Which destroys the ‘we need them for economic reasons’ argument right out of the gate.
“Politicians/governments should be paid according to job success and fined for failure”
That’s why many (regardless of alleged political affiliation) are scared sh#tless of Donald Trump as he would very much do something like that if President.
When u tax behavior, u get less of it.
By taxing success, they’ll get less of it.
Meanwhile, when you finance behavior (like invading a country) you’ll increase the incidence of that behavior.
So they’ll have less success, and more invaders.
Funding the Jihad against them.
The sad thing is it is so avoidable. But then, we in America are nobody to talk about it and criticize what they are doing. We are falling into the same trap.
Very disappointing. The Finns have been so tough fighting off the Soviets.
And now this.
Dhimmitude: the Islamic system of governing populations conquered by jihad wars .. dhimmi taxes until they get bored and kill you.
The invaders of Finland have it easy.
No cities to sack; no warfare. The Fins just surrender and hand their wealth to the invaders.
Sweet gig for the invaders!
