When You Welcome Such Masses of Refugees, You Sure Need A Surveillance State


It’s time for a political rant again. Today I went to my bank because I saved money and since it’s easier to count 100 Euro notes, I wanted to exchange my remaining 50 Euro notes. The idea did sound easy, just go to the bank with 300 Euro in 50 Euro notes, and ask them to give me 3 green 100 Euro notes.

I suffered from depression and anxiety disorder but the problems waned over the years as I have read a lot about it and as I developed strategies to reduce the interval of my panic attacks.
