Germany raises taxes....

  1. If you were European and forced to work in the German labour camps you have to pay 17% taxes on your years working there to the German state.

    If your grandfather died 3 years ago? Doesnt matter. Pay up.

    Thousands of people got their letter in the mail these last weeks.

    Lol at Germany how shameless can one act.

    That's like Uncle Sam calling in property taxes on the Indians that used to own the land.

    link ?

    @Debaser, in another thread you wrote "Germany's refound respect after WWII is their biggest asset."

    You might be right, relatives of mine and people I know, old enough to remember WWII, have very unpleasant memories. Then they earned true respect.
    But I'm afraid they are already losing it, very, very, very fast.
    Their actions already do have consequences on my own behaviour.

    Sorry for linking the Telegraph to provide examples, I know it's anti-euro, but these news should be true anyway.

    Germany's secret plans to derail a British referendum on the EU

    EU says 'regrets' Irish budget leak to Germany

    Britain 'will join euro before long’, says German finance minister

    insisted that the survival and eventual stabilisation of the euro will convince non-members to join the currency club. “This may happen more quickly than some people in the British Isles currently believe,” he added.

    And you considered Berlusconi a buffoon ? :D Then what is Schauble ?

    Stability... LOL, ECB and Germany are bankrupting and throwing half europe in a depression, and they call for more countries to join ! Come on everybody, join the euro and get bankrupted by Germany !

    This is the joke of the century. I would laugh if this wasn't tragic.
  4. How can German tax office have jurisdiction in belgium
  5. They got payed for the time they worked during WWII, and they received all these years retirement from those years they worked.

    So that's why Germany is taxing them, just like they are taxing the other retirements.

    Germany also almost repayed all the money of all the damage they have done all over the world because of the bombing. Yes indeed, got bombed by the Germans and your house is gone? Or some military base was gone ? Or some church was gone? Germany payed it completely to rebuild it. Worldwide.
  6. sounds like BS to me
