Sascha Lobo tritt nochmal dorthin wo es weh tut.

"Spätestens mit dem Polizeiaufgabengesetz und dessen Verteidigung durch Joachim Herrmann steht die Frage im Raum, ab wann "CSU-Innenminister" zur justiziablen Beleidigung wird."

And there I was thinking that password managers exist that are not ridiculous and shield me from the ridiculousness of password strength requirements. Except that LastPass wants me to have a number in my password. But why!? It's long enough.

Damit ist alles gesagt.
Warum Satire es in Deutschland so schwer hat?

Weil Leute ernsthaft so etwas wie im Artikel sagen. Satire lebt von Übertreibungen, aber wie will man so etwas toppen?

Man könnte es probieren mit "CSU schickt Delegation nach Rom um Papst über Christliche Werte aufzuklären", aber ich bin mir ja noch nicht einmal sicher, ob es nicht in der Partei schon ein Gerangel über Plätze in dieser Delegation gibt.

Wenn man Werte wie Christentum und die Familie fördern will, dann könnte man diese ja einfach mal vorleben. Aber damit hat der Herr ja dokumentierte Probleme. Stattdessen verlegt man sich auf das Getöse und Christentum als Macht-Vehikel.

Same in Germany. I don't know when I started going to Kindergarten by myself, but I'm pretty sure I did that by the end. Same for all my time at the elementary school. Sure, both were a 5-10 min walk through a small village, with no way to get lost. But it's not like residential areas look different in the US, except that the distance are likely to be longer. (And hah, did they build sidewalks?)

And sure, there was a parent (my mum) coming home at roughly the same time, so there was someone who'd have noticed if I had not returned. But that's about it.
In Switzerland we got a letter when our first 4 year old went to kindergarten that they were really supposed to walk the route by themselves before the fall break (4 weeks later), and parents are unwelcome at the school doors (there is no gate, they don't look like the prisons they look like in the US).

In contrast, when we lived in LA, our 2 daughters, in 4th and 5th, grade were 2 of the 3 of a school with 400 students in total that walked their 5 minute commute. Our arrest being a matter of time, we fled the country and moved back to where kids learn from a young age about responsibility and what constitutes an acceptable risk.

In the US children are structurally raised to live in fear, and by the time they are adults they don't even recognise it. This explains everything about the internal and external politics of the US.

Just watching Trump on TV telling people that he's distributing military equipment to police forces. And so it starts?

As he says: This is a public safety issue to ensure that vampires don't serve in the state government.
The regional government says the crosses shouldn’t be seen as religious symbols. Sure they're not. They are vampire repellent accessories :)

Nein, doch, oh. Captain Obvious war mal wieder zu Besuch. "Die homöopathischen Mittel hätten keine größere Wirkung als ein Placebo.". You don't say. Aber immerhin vermutlich die gleiche, was manchmal ja etwas bringen soll.
Erstaunliche Erkentniss: Unwirksamme Mittel helfen nicht"

Huch. Trivia-Fakt des Tages: Bayern hat das Grundgesetz damals als einziges Bundesland abgelehnt. (Mit salvatorischer Klausel "wenn die anderen alle mitmachen, sind wir auch dabei".)
