Speaking German in Texas
« on: January 22, 2012, 08:46:29 PM »
In Texas there is a town called New Braunfels , where there is a large German-speaking population.
One day, a local rancher driving down a country road noticed a man using his hand to drink water from the rancher's stock pond.

 

The rancher rolled down the window and shouted: "Sehr angenehm! Trink das wasser nicht. Die kuehe haben darein geschissen." Which means:  "Glad to meet you!  Don't drink the water. The cows have s#*t in it."

 

The man shouted back: "I'm from New York and just down here campaigning for Obama. I can't understand you.  Please speak in English."

 

The rancher replied:  "Use both hands."

American blood spilled to protect the freedom and peace of people all over the world.  320,000 USA casualties in WWI, 1,076,000 USA casualties in WWII, 128,000 USA casualties in the Korean War, 211,000 casualties in the Vietnam "conflict", 57,000 USA casualties in "War on Terror".  Benghazi, Libya, 13 USA casualties. These figures don't include 70,000 MIA.  But, the leaders of one political party of the United States of America continue to make the statement..."What difference does it make?".

"We can't expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism."..."The press is our chief ideological weapon." - Nikita Khrushchev
