Yes. These two men on August 23, 1939 had a deal.

So why was Frank-Walter Steinmeier invited to the memorial ceremony?

Because EU members cannot stop kissing each others butts. :-)

Maybe this could explain the Poland/Germany relationship.

Looks like a net deficit to me. Either they stored away a pile of euros for a rainy day or they are minting euros like gridcoins.

Since the gross national incomes are not stated how do you draw that conclusion?

I assume they normalized it as would be done in any legit study. Clearly, I was mistaken.

The chart does show the small and less affluent countries get a bump in their incomes and the larger more affluent contribute a small portion of their incomes to create that subsidy.

I don't think you understand how the EU budget works. But then who does:)
Simply put though. Richer countries pay more and poorer ones less and there is no deficit since all the EU member states share the same budget.
https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-48256318
Each country pays the same proportion of its national income to the EU budget, so richer countries pay more and poorer ones less. Some countries, such as the UK, pay less because they receive a rebate.
The EU also takes 75% of the customs duties, agricultural duties and sugar levies collected by each member state when goods enter the customs union.
The EU spends the money on a wide range of projects, but about three quarters of the budget every year goes to two main areas: agriculture and development of poorer areas of the EU.
So, poorer countries and those with a lot of farms get more.

Agreed. The chart, the way it is drawn, makes it seem the east is feeding off the west, probably its intent.

Another way to put is that the west/north pay the east/south to feed the west/north. Food would be very much expensive in the west/north if we didn't.

That is not the way I would put it. Re-phrasing: The intent of the chart, IMHO, it to make it seem like the east European nations are SUCKING THE LIFE BLOOD out of the west European nations. In reality, nothing like that is happening, it just looks like it.

But why do say that European Commision has an intent?
European Commision
It consists of one citizen of the Union from each Member State, also known as 'Commissioners'. [2] The functions and powers of the Commission can, in simplified terms, be similar to those that a government typically has in a state.
The Commission is responsible for drafting legislative proposals that promote the general interests of the Union, and for implementing the laws adopted at European level after being approved by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union.

Message 2010979 - Posted: 6 Sep 2019, 16:53:33 UTC

The Conservative MP for Lewes, Maria Caulfield, also tweeted: "Very disturbed to see the school turning away girls from Priory school because they choose to wear a skirt and calling the police on them.
"This is not how we should be treating the young women of Lewes."
It said pupils not following the new rule was "detracting" staff from teaching.
Did those teachers get their degrees out of a cornflakes box?
IMHO, the people at fault here is the police. The school should have been charged with wasting police time!

The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions: Address Before the Young
Men's Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois January 27, 1838

At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.

Priory School was formed from schools, including Lewes County Grammar School for Girls, which she attended.

Interesting article
This isn't just about the CIA, however. Look at many governments, law firms, army leadership teams, senior civil servants and even executives at some tech companies. We are unconsciously drawn to people who think like ourselves, but rarely notice the danger because we are unaware of our own blind spots.
Yep, that can be clearly seen on this board quite regularly. :-)

Making mountains out of mole hills again.

All a failure of the media and politicians failing to study the source, which was an incomplete academic study, and a complete lack of knowledge of statistics.
It's all about a crime, that very rarely gets prosecuted, so if in an area the average is less than one case per year, two cases in a year could easily increase the rate by 226%.
