A lesson from history

by Volker Weber


These kind of pictures became unpopular where we live almost sixty years ago. They had the same claim, and were red instead of blue. In Iraq they became unpopular last year, and they are rumored to be removed in North Korea right now. Libya still has them.


I'm still amazed living here, how billboards for "God" exist. Surely if he/she exists, they can do something more impressive than a billboard?

OK I'm going to hell, I know, no need to tell me.

Frightening. As is the Constitution Restoration Act.

Scary, but not really surprising, unfortunately. Things have been headed in that direction for the last couple of years.

You know what? I wouldn't even be surprised if Dubya and his cronies were to remove the two term limit for the presidency. Project "no more verifiable elections" is almost completed already.

What I like best about this president is that his administration has the guts to tell others (in this case Ukraine), they would not accept their election results due to missing international standards. They were right in this, but I think I have heard the exact argument from international observers attending the vote in the US.

well, we should not complain about someone who's only mission on earth is to spread God's word and have all Americans (!) be free - or should we?

Clearly (most, or at least slightly more than half of) Americans really have no verifiable sense of history, and therefore deserve what they get. Unfortunatley, they drag the rest of us down with them sometimes.

As Andrew Pollack says, they should rename the Dept. of Homeland Security to the Department of Fatherland Security, which is at least more accurate, if not truthful, in some ways.
