So the German president resigned yesterday over questions regarding his earlier ties (i.e., before he was president) to wealthy people who apparently loaned him money.

He was in office for two years, and the presidential pension plan is roughly 200,000 Euros a year.

So I'm planning to run for president of Germany. Of course, I'm probably not qualified. Germany has some pretty strict rules regarding citizenship as a requirement for public office ever since some crazy Austrian was in power. But I figure that I can get really popular first and then ask them to change the law.

It's not a sure-fire plan, but it's a plan.

If you run into any stumbling blocks, I can run with you as my VP then resign myself. Since I was born there I might be able to claim citizenship through some malformed loophole. As you said, it's a plan.

Some folks in here don't believe in retirement.
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.
