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.
