Here’s one for the Euro-readers who may have no idea how truly nuts half the political structure is in this country.

Fresh from the Washington Times, the DC paper of the GOP, on where I live:

“Mexifornia” is a case in point. California once was the symbol of the American dream. Today, it is sinking into a Third World abyss. Among large parts of Los Angeles, English can no longer be heard. Some neighborhoods are no-go areas. They are occupied by Mexican gangs and drug cartels. In the Golden State’s public schools, from kindergarten through the third grade, almost 2 out of 5 students have English as their second language. In the Central Valley, the state’s agricultural region, one can go for hundreds of miles and hear only one language: Spanish …

Yet Americans remain strangely silent. We are witnessing the emergence of a multicultural, multiethnic and multilingual Tower of Babel. Unless it is demolished, it will tear America apart. Today, Texas students are being told to pledge allegiance to Mexico and sing its anthem. Tomorrow, they may be told that the U.S. flag and the Constitution of our Founding Fathers represent a foreign regime occupying foreign soil.

Welcome to the United States of Mexico.

They really would like to see Hellfire missiles on the Predator drones at the border.

    Well the point isn’t so much, that seen from Germany your country doesn’t seem “nuts”.
    I have developed an increasing distrust towards the reliability of our media. Therefore i try not to simply pick up their depiction of things and accept it as true.
    Of course one sees all the potential presidential candidates of your conservative party and thinks that there must be a good deal of irony involved to call those facists the “Republicans”, while they appear clearly antidemocratic.
    But still you hope that this is only some cheap trick to promote the own program/newspaper/etc. and that in actual fact people are more sensible than they are shown.
    Then again you put on your nose clamp and dive into the comment swamps of The Register, to see opinions regarding nuclear or so called green technology and your mind boggles. It is devastating to witnesss how aggressive people defend simplistic views without ever actually listening to what other people have thought about.
