Warning: This is not a piece about cute dogs!
Read the text here before clicking through.

The piece below is not a cheerful one. It started out as a comment on an earlier post, but it grew into a piece in its own right. I was trying to answer +Enclosed Grand Dad's question of why certain groups are particular targets of the Trump regime; that, in turn, grew into discussing what might be coming down the pipe next.

I come from a family for which thinking these things through, and knowing when to jump, has been a critical survival skill. The things in this post are the sorts of things people talk about quietly, while doing silent calculations about their options, but rarely talk about in public.

Why the picture of the puppy? Because I stuck several pictures of cute animals, and links to even more, inside this article. They make this easier to deal with.

I'm going to go pet my dogs now.

"Wir gehen auch davon aus, dass die Summen, um die es dabei geht, niemanden veranlassen, sich krank ins Geschäft zu schleppen."

Ja, hm, warum denn dann wohl!? Was soll der /incentive/ denn dann bringen? Dass man sich weniger krank meldet, wenn man nicht krank ist? Warum wäre das dann dafür eine Motivation wenn ich pro Tag schon so viel bekomme wenn ich nicht krank bin, daheim sitze und mein Arbeitslohn bekomme?

Mein AG will ja, dass ich gefälligst nicht komme, wenn ich krank bin. Die Kosten werden dadurch ja auch nur größer.
