Re: Whining and complaining

If I'd find a job at home, I'd live there:


Side note: I am pretty sure Brusselles was chosen BECAUSE it is so boring. If it was a great place, it could give Europe some identity, something all national leaders really do not want to see. As far as I remember did the French insist it to be on French soil and everybody else insisted it to be "somewhere else than France", so the agreed on Belgium for half of the time and move several thousand people to Strassbourg every few weeks. Probably the most idiotic comittee decision in modern history.

Forgot to ask you, where did you get that info from? Among the 15 richest Swiss living in Switzerland, there is one car importer, and among the 15 richest foreigners living in Switzerland there is none, unless you count the Peugeot clan, but they own car factories abroad and do not import cars to Switzerland in the first place.

So we have one car importer among 30 richest persons or clans. Not exactly very much, don't you think? Definitely not enough to justify your sweeping statement.

Let's have a look at these priorities here
- modesty ---- CH people and modest ?
- friendliness --- CH people and friendly ... . YES
- self-objectivity ... CH people and self-objective .... not so much
- patience ... CH people and patient .... NO, not at all and never
- humour ... CH people humourous ... YES
- solidarity ... CH people and solidarity-feeling .... YES
- equality ... CH people and in favour of equality .... YES
- regretfulness .... ?????
this is of course your own personal definition as well as mine, as well as our own personal experience...if you're a Swiss you may not be so objective

NO, the car importers profit from ANTI parallel import laws, and so are absolutely against parallel imports !!!!! why do you turn things upside down ????
I didn't write who where pro or con, I just wrote "thanks to parallel import laws"...please re-read...

Re: Whining and complaining

Yeah, right, that's the one I found too. However, 1 in 30 doesn't mean, " ...also the richest 'men' in Switzerland are car importers," as you put it. I guess, for importing cars on a grand scale you cannot be a financial nobody anyway, no matter what your business practices and morals are.
