THE SCHNAUZER'S DILEMMA
News Item: Chancellor Angela Merkel visits the U.S. which wants to tighten Russian
The Grand Ollama has a big smile and large even masticating teeth. Now, now my
little Schnazzi, we have been friends a long time and my people have protected you.
Ja! and now it has become an insane protection racket look at this letter ... Daimler
-- you like Mercedes cars don't you? Siemens -- all ze power stations and everything
electrical; BASF -- all ze chemicals; Volkswagen ... they are all the biggest in German
industry -- the Dobermans and Rottweilers. They do not want your sanctions. I am
just a little Schnauzer. I have to listen.
But don't they see the bigger picture. Isn't Ukraine a prize?
Prize? It's bankrupt. It's backward, and the Nazis are their enforcers. We went

Don't worry. We get rid of them when we don't need them.
That's what you think ... anyway, 300,000 jobs and our economy needs all the help it
can get. We have enough problems with all the East Europeans as it is. Why can't
we keep making money off the Russians as we have been doing?
You just don't see the big picture ...
Ja! The big picture ... the big picture is, like Ukraine, Greece, Spain, and so on, you
too are broke ... Prost! Let's go eat. You got good sausages or are you going to
give me leaves from your wife's garden again ...
