Wow, German Chancellor Gerhard Schr?der's party lost in the elections held last week, in his own state! That's gotta suck for him. The Christian Democrats picked up the majority vote in Hesse and Lower Saxony at 48% I believe. Schr?der is from Lower Saxony, and when he was elected Chancellor, his two biggest supporters were Hesse and Lower Saxony. Apparently while the Germans approve of what he is doing regarding the war in Iraq, unemployment rates have been going up and the Germans don't like what he is doing to stop that.

Go here for more info on German government... they have one similar to the US but it is a multiparty system.

i dont like germany. when they talk it sounds like everything they say is a curse word...cause of the dirty way they speak.

How does every word sound like a curse word? They don't really have curse words (well they do but they use them so much that they are not really offensive). How exactly do they speak dirty?

I'm German... am I cocky stuck up and condesending? You haven't met the right Germans man... Germans are such nice people. Well, friendlier than most Americans anyways (my opinion there). And we don't spit a lot... at least not my accent... the southern dialects are very hard and lots of hocking and gagging, but the Northern German dialects are a lot softer. Try the dialect around Koeln...er... Cologne. The dialect there is very soft. For example... ich... in the southern dialects ik. Cologne, ish. All depends on which part you are in my friend.



Oneforthemoney... :" :D You are right Germany has had a colored history... but if you really know about Germany's history you'll realize that it's not really the individual's fault. Just because Hitller was evil doesn't mean all Germans are.
