Merkel: Multiculturalism is a failure « Hot Air - Meanwhile, immigrant-bashing and pro-right rhetoric are not the province of America alone. In Germany, Chancellor Merkel says the country is being made "more stupid" by Muslim immigrants. "We feel tied to Christian values," she said. "Those who don't accept them don't have a place here," she said.
According to Dr. Karen Weatherby, a gerontologist and author of the study, gawking at women’s breasts is a healthy practice, almost at par with an intense exercise regime, that prolongs the lifespan of a man by five years.
She added, "Just 10 minutes of staring at the charms of a well-endowed female, is roughly equivalent to a 30-minute aerobics work-out."
(Note: the study has not been replicated on American men - someone want to volunteer? There are links to the "study" from various times in 2009 and 2010, and speculation it is a hoax. Information? Meanwhile, stare on!!)
A new study published this week in the German magazine Der Spiegel revealed far-right thoughts are common in Germany today. One-third of Germans said they would send foreigners home if there were not enough jobs to go around. One-sixth of Germans said Jews have too much influence.
A recent survey showed that more than 30% of Germans believed Germany was "overrun by foreigners". The study - by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation think-tank - also showed that roughly the same number thought that some 16 million of Germany's immigrants or people with foreign origins had come to the country for the social benefits.
If you enjoy getting gourmet products like tiramisu and virgin olive oil at Trader Joe's, then you might enjoy this piece from the NYT blog: Trader Joe's Secrets - NYTimes.com
They did a former piece called Do You Know Who Owns Trader Joe's? - NYTimes.com in which it was revealed that Trader Joe's is owned by a HUGE German discount grocery outlet. The company is called Aldi. Given their funky image (Hawaiian shirts etc.), this seems a bit strange.
It's American women, like this Professional Class, clueless dolt, that make my life here in Germany much, much, harder than it has to be.
This breathless 'can't see past the nose on her face' astonishment thing of hers over the the fact that the rest of the world does not see America as The Sun that Planet Earth Revolves Around is exactly why the 95% of rest of the world has come to not have much, if any, respect left for We The Peoples of the USA.
And she's one of the smarter, better educated, and better traveled Americans.
Which, I guess, if Google is right, and she's a Product of GWU's MBA Program, majoring in, get this:
Business Administration Marketing & International Business is yet another indictment, (of a long line of them), of America's Higher Education System.
As well as the Elite Business School MBA Class. When I worked at Andersen Consulting in the late 1990s the place was rife with these idiots. You'd have thought we'd have learned our lesson over the course of this past decade, and started to produce better and more competent people, but I guess not.
And if Google is further right, and this is actually what she does for her Career, then things are even worse than I thought.
I'm so embarrassed by this I don't even know where to start.
BTW, I had a devil of a time finding a can of Campbell's New England Clam Chowder this past winter in the Marienplatz because American produced foods are, rightfully, not prominently displayed. Especially in the nicer German supermarkets.
And why should they be, when the other 95% of the world's people have so much better food to offer than America does?
