That this happens in a statist government that supports a welfare state funded by stealing the wealth from others and redistributing it to the rest of society, shouldn’t really come as a surprise now should it? I’m always amazed and amused when people express surprise and outrage over government excesses, the same government mind you, that involves itself in just about every aspect of your lives. KGS

Belgians deported to Nazi Germany in World War II to work as slaves for the Third Reich have now received tax demands from Berlin.
Belgium’s finance minister Didier Reynders has vowed to confront Germany over the ‘morally indefensible’ tax demands which have been arriving in the mailboxes of elderly war survivors over the past few weeks.
‘It is shocking that people who during World War II were forced to work by the Nazis have now received tax demands from the authorities related to the compensation eventually paid for that work,’ he said.
