    Default German politician quits over wine stunt

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/4547227.stm

    A German politician has been forced to resign after pouring wine over the head of a homeless man.
    Peter Gloystein, Economy Minister in the state of Bremen, doused a stunned Udo Oelschlaeger during the launch of German wine week last Wednesday.

    "Here's something for you to drink," he said as he poured the wine. "Who are you? Why are you doing this?," a tearful Mr Oelschlaeger retorted.

    Mr Gloystein said he had met Mr Oelschlaeger later and apologised.

    Not funny

    Mr Oelschlaeger was standing next to the podium at the public, open-air event from where the centre-right Christian Democrat poured the wine.

    Mr Gloystein said he had not intended to insult the homeless man, who did not find it "funny", police said.

    "I had a long and intensive talk with Mr Oelschlaeger the same evening. He explained his difficult life. We departed on friendly terms," the politician said.

    "If possible, I would like to help out Mr Oelschlaeger," Mr Gloystein said in a statement.
    Why did he it in the first place?

    That's hilarious. I hate how the politicians with the stones to do something funny or audacious are forced to resign.

    Saw it in the news, they mentioned that the homeless guy might have said something before.
    I don´t really care about that, it´s strange, just like most politicians

    What's funny is that politicians resign for something like this, but not for messing up the budget or causing an international incident. No, wait, it's not funny at all.
    If you're fighting fair you've made a miscalculation.

    I guess they should be glad that you would not kill them together with the HIV-infected people in your own happy little utopia.

    I'm kind of getting tired of your hateful comments on this board ... don't you have some people at home who you might annoy with your statements instead of speading your joy here?

    Anyways I don't see why I have to stop making my hateful statements when they ARE my opinion. I mean that's the point, right?


    You pay taxes right?
    Yes although I haven't had much to pay as of now. I'm still pretty young but I always do my tax report.
    Guess what though, I would hope those homeless bastards would start doing some work for themselves. You have no idea how easy it is to get a great job where I live. With 3 courses at the college you can get a career that has a salary of 18 and up dollars an hour. Pretty funken easy ain't it? But no these people like smoking dope, drinking heavily, and picking garbage. I say f'em.

    BP, I believe it's irrelevant to you whether homeles people can afford three college courses, or is it a world where every bum has a master's degree?

    I would expect more sensitivity from an immigrant. Talk to us about you BP, what kind of baground equipped you with such beliefs?

    Idomenea no immigrant I have ever known has ever tolerated homelessness, and I know a lot of immigrants. Immigrants come here with nothing and make something for themselves in a manner of months. Why? Because they choose to work hard. Where they come from is poor by nature and they still made a living and now they come here(the most prosperous place in Canada and indeed N.America) and they see people that are worse(unnecessarily IMO) then the ones back home wherever that is. I can tell you most are pretty disenchanted.

    So first HIV positives, and now poor people. Anyone else that you'd like to purge? Mentally disadvanteged people? The old? Minorities? Ugly people?

    Homeless people are not poor, they choose to spend every cent they have on booze. Every time you see them they are either drunk or high. If it wasn't for you liberals cutting them so much slack they would actually become constructive members of society.

    Or maybe the homeless would just die? I am sure that would be fine by you.

    Some homeless people are as you described them, lazy alcoholics. But many fo them are productive members of society who by chance were dealt a rough hand. After becoming homeless it becomes extremely hard to get a job, who wants to hire and unwashed person in rumpled slept-in clothing? I suggest you wear one pair of clothes, and not nice clothes, for a week and try to apply for a job.

    I was homeless for a while in the 1980's ( the X-wife and I split the house 50-50 ....she got the inside and I got the outside )....so by your reckoning it would be ok to assault me. Is that right BP?......

    Sometimes things can happen in your life that you have little or no control over. Homelessness is one of them. If some of them do have problems with alcohol and/or drugs then they need medical treatment. I will take your young age into account here....you sad child
    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    Why do you guys even give him the time of day? Everything that comes out of his twisted little mouth is a troll. Of course he doesn't believe in exterminating homeless people, but he's desparate for attention and you've now given it to him.

    I think this politician should have been shown the door, if for nothing else he's clearly stupid and incompetent or unable to resist the urges coming from a dangerous temper. When you make your money by begging & stealing from the population at large (the politicians, not the homeless) arrogance and pride are not your friends.

    Somehow, I don't think it is particularly wise to run around the board claiming that you have the right to be hateful. Not only are you wrong, you look like a(n) _______________ (Fill in the blank) for doing it.

    You aren't seriously asserting that you have a right to be hateful, are you?

    Sure, he can be hateful; he just can't do it on the forum. Neither is he forced to cease his ignorance. Without it, he couldn't be vehement or shocking anymore.

    In any case, I see nothing wrong with being homeless. If they really are choosing to be homeless (which is the most insane thing I've ever heard), they're living a much more stoic life than anyone, including BP, is. Think about it. With no shelter, no money, no food, no respect and no way out, being homeless is worse than North America's prisons.

    I'm not talking about people who might be living outside a couple of months here anyways. I'm talking about chronic alcoholics who are the vast, VAST majority of people who are homeless. That's what i don't feraken like to see! We have plenty of really good looking homeless shelters in my city, and guess what? Hobos actually PREFER it outside! They hate those places, and only go there to eat.
