It seems that German welfare queens have been enraging their hard working fellow citizens by driving expensive cars while on the dole. The Christinan Democrats in parliament, however, have come up with a solution - force those receiving benefits to sell their cars (above a certain value) in order to contribute to their own upkeep. The plan has been thwarted in the past, but appears to be moving forward.
On the minus side of the ledger, German attorney Jens Lorek is encouraging citizens who believe they've been abducted by aliens to apply for government compensation originally set aside for kidnap victims. "There's quite obviously demand for legal advice here," Lorek told
Reuters. "The trouble is, people are afraid of
making fools of themselves in court." Enough said.
