    i guess germany has to get the US first amendment implemented into their society,
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    u should remind , the history of the USA,
    do u know till today the imigration german background of US citicens is around 20%
    and at 1700-1750 around,the germans was the biggest group in the USA
    do u know how big the german impact was in the american civil war?
    do u know how big the impact was from the so called "Forty-Eighters" in USA
    do u know for example the names : von Steuben,or Carl Schurz
    (many many other could named here)

    maybe u should reconsider ure statement [​IMG]

    so,the 10 or 15 years,in germany we had this "dump abscess"regime
    say nothing,absolutly nothing about the german history
    let me say a "dark-age" u can find in every country of the world

    Uh, I didn't state that line you quoted. Someone else did.

    And I am WELL aware of the Germanic influence on the US. My grandmother's maiden name is Sibert (an americanization of Seibert). Other family members have a last name that is a corrupted version of "Jaeger" (Yeager). There is a sizable community of German descended folk in the region, and an even larger group of people that are of German-speaking Swiss descent.

    And, I was a minor in History in college, until I ran into a professor who spent his entire time in a "US History 1787-1826" course ranting about the great right-wing conspiracy, including such villainous ultra-right conservatives as Lyndon Johnson and Jimmy Carter (What the ****???).

    Apology, please?
