Weak Work Week With Waning Wages

With a wealth of wayward pupils — out of town or out to lunch — and Prague’s transport strike set for tomorrow, I’ve had some time to get creative.

Prague Metro

Prague’s largets union is striking tomorrow, in advance of a gov’t confidence vote, trying to move these ruling Bozos into dissolving the coalition, and thus ending the present government and forcing new elections. If new elections happen now, it’s likely the socialist party (CSSD) will win, and taxes will become astronomical, debt galactic, and the fall of the country is easily possible.

On the other hand, if the present gov’t makes it through the end of June, then the “cucumber season” begins for the newspapers/tele, which means little coverage and no great scandals shall be exposed (as 2-3 have broken each week since before Christmas!). And if they make it through July & August, then the gov’t will likely cruise into the end of the year.

The problem with all this is that nothing is getting done, not least of which is health care reform and pension reform, without which the country will be bankrupt in 2 years. So really the Czechs are damned if they do and damned if they don’t.

Meanwhile, I’m about to make Spanish tortia !!!
