George, we don't like you

by Volker Weber

We don't like that for your visit we needed to shut down major highways and two rivers for hours on end, one city, a huge hospital, lots of businesses including one automotive plant. That people had to remove their mailboxes, to clean out their garages and have them sealed. That they were not allowed to go onto their own balconies nor open their windows, unless they wanted to be shot by your sharpshooters. Children could not go to school, people were unable to get to work. Police broke into a private home to remove a banner stating you are not welcome.

You said, you would like to return to this beautiful country. Please don't. Or if you must, please visit here. It is much safer. And November would be a good time.


....kann eine AirForce-Number-One auf Helgoland landen ? ...oder muss er dann Aviator-like "Spruce Goose" reaktivieren..... :-)

You forgot the bit about having almost all German domestic airspace shut down for hours, even for flights going nowhere near his destination. Not that I'm still bitter or anything.

Sorry about that. If it is any consolation, many of us don't really want him to come home, either.

I forwarded your comments to the Office of Homeland Security (Bald German Division). Good luck getting in on your next trip to Fla.

Ron, you put the finger directly into your wound. Land of the free.

Volker Weber, 2005-02-28

Just having a little fun Volker. Still land of the free, just provide the proper paperwork.

Ron, I don't think this is very funny. In fact, your original post reminded me of a well known saying in Germany: "Das größte Schwein im ganzen Land, das ist der Denunziant".

I don't care what you think is funny. I respect Volker and know he likes coming to the US despite his feelings about our President. Your original post reminded me of a well known saying in America: Ich hab noch einen Koffer in Berlin!

Volker: Please ban me again from posting on your site again.

I was a little surprised by George W. taking a walk through a crowd and shaking hands in Bratislava just a day or two after the shut down of Mainz and the wider (widest?) vicinity...
