A dismayed ex-American wondering how to process the embarrassing actions of whiners.

I find all this whininess too irritating.

Is it legal in Switzerland to shoot them all, and if so, with what?

It is not (legal).
Too bad actually as it is about 90% of the population - imagine the space we would suddenly have

I recommend a Sig P226.

You may need to buy more bullets.

Sure, but then the boat wouldn't be full anymore. Imagine the political turmoil that would create!

The boat was not full in 1942 (sorry, German) and it is not now.

My exaggerated craving for space is a personal flaw .... which I suppress more or less successfully

The boat has never been full, despite claims to the contrary by various parties.

No, you didn't exclude the possibility of the boat being full between 1942 and now.

Agree, all this whininess is so very irritating. POTUS recommends to retract to a safe and special place.

Here is a similar statement to yours:
"Germany was not at war during the Weimar republic, and it is not now."
Question: was Germany never at war between the Weimar republic and now?

I'm not tired, I'm pedantic.

No, you compare things that have nothing in common. How ever, read into my statement what ever makes you happy.

Re: A dismayed ex-American wondering how to process the embarrassing actions of whine

Agree with OP, TRump is whining far too much - Mexican Judge, wrong Judge, woman Judge, that blooming Constitution, bad photos on CNN or the Press, 'unfair' Protestors, etc, etc, etc. He really should stop whining indeed Whining at questions over multiple voting registration for his family - next he will be whiing about being expected to pay tax ... or first to show his tax returns, etc, etc, etc.

I was making an observation about the sentence construction which you used. I was not comparing pears and apples. The sentence construction you used, and the one I used to demonstrate my point are about as equivalent as two sentences can get.

I wasn't making a political statement about Germany, nor refuting yours about Switzerland. I was trying to point out that your sentence could have been a pit more inclusive.
