“We do not want to pay into a big pot”

(Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel and Finance Minister Peer Steinbrück)

I guess some people have some sense left. Despite calls for now international socialism, Germany’s government said: enough is enough.
We as Germans do not want to pay into a big pot where we do not have control and do not know where German money might be used.
Good for them. Now, if only individual people everywhere said the same thing, and their governments listened to them… Yeah, keep dreaming…

Update: Not that Germans are immune to absurdity.
