Angela Merkel has announced that she will force all private German companies to hire a certain number of Syrian Refugees. Is this a good choice?

Ok, so she will strongly "strongly urge" them to hire refugees instead of force them. Big deal.

No, that's not at all what's going on. In the future you should read articles instead of seeing a headline from Breitbart and immediately posting a poll. Angela Merkel isn't forcing anyone to hire refugees. She's merely meeting with major companies to encourage them to hire refugees. There isn't any coercion.

You need to take this poll down.

There is no link that can satisfy this lie. What I think happened was CA read the sensationalist headline "Merkel Demands All Big German Companies Hire Refugees" on Breitbart and proceeded to not read the article. If CA actually read the far-right newspaper, then he would find that literally the first sentence says, "Chancellor Angela Merkel has invited executives from some of Germany’s biggest listed companies to attend a summit next month where she will urge them to hire more refugees, the newspaper Bild reported on Saturday."

There's no coercion here. This is merely a meeting where Merkel will encourage companies to take advantage of the cheap labor force at their disposal.

Yeah, that is a big deal. That's the difference between force and a lack of force. I can ask you to eat broccoli or I can hold a gun to your head and tell you to eat broccoli. To say that there is no difference between the two dialogues is nonsense.

Take it down.

I surprisingly hate Merkel more than Clinton and Obama! She is a complete idiot! I'm glad one by one those leaders in Europe are falling! First Cameron , next François! I'm hoping Hofer beats the Independent leader in Austria! And I'm glad Merkel's party is losing more and more power! Let's go Le Pen make France better! I'm sorry , I pay lots of attention to European politics!

She is an idiot but she was elected by the people so they get what they wanted.

It must be really interesting living in a world where there is no difference between a request and a demand. Every single thing that is asked of CA is a demand, which must be really fascinating.

Skinner... You're spending a lot of energy on someone who isn't going to budge. Not sure it is worth it, and it doesn't look admirable from other user's standpoint (even though I agree with you).

I'm not the one who should be embarrassed. At least I am literate enough to read an article. At least I can determine the difference between coercion and voluntary transactions.

Skinner: Hey, CA, your poll is incorrect and if you applied this same standard of logic to other dialogues, then you should see that this poll is a lie that you should delete.

CA: So what if it's a lie? "Big deal." Stop pointing out my deceit. *Begins torrent of illogical alt-right insults.*

The thing that really works me up, CA, is that you know this isn't true, but you won't take down the poll. It would be one thing if you were being misled, but you're purposely propagating false information, and that's wrong. I'd be a "beta male" if I let you get away with it.

Acting whiny, obnoxious and rude is not how you get someone to do something for you.

There's no disagreement here. You just spout off before you know facts and then refuse to take personal responsibility for it.

Angela Merkel: I would strongly urge all you to hire refugees.

CA's logical interpretation: Angela Merkel is forcing all German companies to hire a certain number of refugees.

-----------------------------------------------

Donald Trump: I would strongly urge all of you to vote for me in November.

CA's logical interpretation: Donald Trump is forcing every American citizen to vote for him in November.


And you say the media is biased.

CA's logical interpretation: Help! My friend is robbing me!

It's no doubt that a good minority of German people are seeing Merkle on par as Hitler because both have aims for genocide. One aimed the Jews, the other aims German people, in their own country, elected their own leader, who betrayed them... America is next.
