Those poor Europeans…

May 2, 2010

Wow.  Now vacations are a human right!!  Unreal.

Europeans taxes will go up even more now.   Just to pay for vacations.  Talk about a redistribution of wealth!!!

I can actually see this happening in the good old USA.  Take,  take,  take.

I’m so sorry but vacations are most definitely NOT a human right.

Only GOD gives human rights.

The world has gone mad.  Absolutely mad.

The European Union has declared travelling a human right, and is launching a scheme to subsidize vacations with taxpayers’ dollars for those too poor to afford their own trips.

Antonio Tajani, the European Union commissioner for enterprise and industry, proposed a strategy that could cost European taxpayers hundreds of millions of euros a year, The Times of London reports.

“Travelling for tourism today is a right. The way we spend our holidays is a formidable indicator of our quality of life,” Mr. Tajani told a group of ministers at The European Tourism Stakeholders Conference in Madrid on April 15. Mr. Tajani was appointed to his post by Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.
