nothing to add. What to say. It4s my beloved Germany.
Here asylants are getting golden teeth for free while fee-payers in the
social insurency only get plastics.
If I had a chance I would go elsewhere but I have a job closely connected to
my mothertounge - copywriter.
And I have my son of first marriage. Won4t be able to come with me legally.
So I stay and hope it won4t get worse too fast.
I can stand the situation here as I am married to my lady of dreams.
But still most people over here think of german cars as best, our people are
poets and thinkers (haha!), americans are undereducated (guess where I was
offered Bruckner and Furtwdngler music for italian diner? Texas!), our
machines are most wanted and there is nothing why people might not like us.
Well, look at our economy and politics. Our people in general are weak,
yellows and cowards, don4t have an own oppinion but are the best mobbers you
can think of. Oh yes, the missing backbone I forgot. Really don4t like my
own "fellow citizens". Next will be the realization of the plan "speed limit
80 for motorbikes". Latest then I will have to think about my future
location more seriously.
Not to moan, there are positive things as well. Sorry, don4t have one in
But for the collection in your area, that4s an opportunity to keep in mind.
I4ll come back on that. Spring 04?
