I had no idea European Bison were even a thing... Their current range is practically a pinprick of a map...

 

I've always heard that Bison were unique to America, and they got the nickname Buffalo because it was the closest thing people could associate with them. But this changes everything. This is the real news of this thread.

The former only without Merkel, the latter maybe without Merkel...

 

Edit: No, the Greens will never join a coalition with the CDU/CSU without Merkel...

Hope you guys have more luck forming a coalition than we're having. We're approaching record time without a cabinet - which suits the largest party just fine since now they don't have to justify saying "no" to any reform that helps people instead of corporations with anything but "we can't make this big decision right now, we're only the decommissionary cabinet!" despite them still being the largest party.

It's decided. SPD doesn't want to rule, so the only remaining option is CDU-Green-FDP (due to party colours this is called "Jamaika"-CDU black, FDP yellow, Green Green).

Good luck then, weed excluded, Jamaica is mess, economically and socially

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

So this is pretty interesting. German youth made also a vote (though meaningless), above the results. SPD gained even less percent than in the actual vote. It appears that of the SPD doesn't get its own Corbyn, it will be doomed to disappear

the problem seems to be that he isn't a commie. The main issue of the SPD is that they are so centre that they have become a worse CDU (Merkels Party). If they want to gather more votes, they'll have to shift to the left Edited by Ben No.3

Germany (and most western countries) are third world countries in the making.

Sharp_one you do realize if Germany collapses Poland will be following it shortly afterwards down  the economic maelstrom   :geek:

 

The EU offers the best economic future for a  country like Poland, there  is no realistic better alternative

Based on past results, that seems like he's over qualified :p

Reminds me of a few years ago when we had a wild brown bear on the lose. There was a huge media panic and they just couldn't find and catch the bear. There was lots of back and forth until the decision was made to shoot the bear. Suddenly - what a great coincidence - like an hour later, they were able to find and kill the bear.

 

Made me so angry, someone pretty much just wanted to shoot a bear. It was impossible to prevent.

I wonder what the record is (non-monarch) for length of ruling a modern European country. Putin and Merkel have to be close, if not haviing set the record already.
