Ext, I find it amusing that CHINA might threaten companies who have thus far, bent over for CHINA.
China will allow economic consequence to occur so long as they think that they can OUTLIVE the TRUMP admin.

GOOD RUCK WITH THAT CHAIRMAN MAO.

Jane

InterestingGus. I was talking to someone this week who lived in Germany for 20 years and said the West and the East had a hard time assimilating. OTOH I had a German boyfriend for 20 years born while his parents were escaping, and he never mentioned it.maybe that was too early.

Do you think it’s still going on?

Captain Hate

Around here the bucks drop their antlers around February and already have good sized velvet covered nubs several inches long.

Because of all the rain, the scrubby brush beside the park paths is overgrown. Walking Teddy on one all of a sudden a young buck with about nine inch nubs raised his head about five feet away and stared at me. Teddy was sniffing on the other side of the path and I just surreptitiously kept walking.

Buckeye

Been home since 4:30. Mrs. Buckeye bought some items to help me get around for the next few weeks, seat for my shower, raised toilet seats and so forth.

Was pretty sweet of her.

Poogan notices that I am moving more slowly, and have some pain.

Gives me that look that says "you been rumblin' buddy?" :):)

Jane, it was very true through the ‘80s and ‘90s in Germany.

The Ossies resented the wealth of the Wessies, and the Wessies resented the increased taxes they were paying to subsidize the upgrades in the east. Lots of complications working out land ownership issues for property confiscated by the East German government. Etc.

It was a bumpy road. Don’t know how bad it is today, but presume it’s getting better over time.

Captain Hate

Looking at both sides of the Berlin Wall, it was hard to imagine the East Germans not having slothful work habits which wouldn't change overnight.

Captain Hate

Welcome home, Buckeye.

You nailed it, CH--No work ethic.

Narciso

Add to that an influx of mostly Turkish workers into parts of the eastern sector although we discovered some were Syrian as well as egyptian

The Infamous Ignatz

--Anyone know what their beef is?--

Yeah, they're still owed 988 years on that Reich of theirs.

Narciso

And the EU gave then what they couldn't acquire by force of arms.

GUS

Narciso, this is FULL COMMIE to the MAX.
If we don't win, we shit on you and our country.
You are unreasonable and you hate TRANNIES or sumptimg.
We need another vote.
And TRUMP IS HITLER.
You hate GAYS and queers or SUMPTING.
Trump is a mysoginist and he hates homo's or SUMPTING.
We need to RE-VOTE until we win.
Trump is unfit to serve, it doesn't matter that he won.....ETC ETC.
And the blithering fools and FULL COMMIES march along.

Jane

Hang tough buckeye
!

Jane

AB,

It certainly wasn’t obvious in the few hours I was there. Interesting as hell, especially with what Gus said about Merkel.

GUS

East Germans no work ethic. What were they supposed to be working for. RUSSIA??
What products and lifestyle choices did, would or could they have if they were good COMMIES???
UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE????? Free COLLEGE.
It is the OBVIOUS RECIPE for LOSERS.

LIBERALS LOVE THE CONCEPT, so long as they are on the recieving end of POWER.

Jane

How are you looking at it, Cpt Hate?

Narciso

Trabants mostly, Russian tanks and other armaments,

“Looking at both sides of the Berlin Wall”

After the wall came down, there was no mistaking what was east and what was west.

I was there in 1991, and made a point of browsing east Berlin. In the east, the buildings that survived the war were pockmarked with bullet impacts, those built after were the same dirty and unimaginative construction.

Captain Hate

I'm not sure what you mean, Jane, but houses on the East side of the wall were slums with no pride of ownership. It was like night and day compared to the west. Since the stereotypes of Germans, which exist for a reason, was of being hard working and industrious, it could only be the system that led to the anomaly.

Let me put it this way: when I did contract work for the feds I was miserable because it wasn't real work. Since the money was pretty good, there was the risk of getting trapped into thinking that was normal. But the project ended and I was outta there with no desire to return.

Narciso

That Sykes is a fool, but we knew that already.

Narciso

Despite 1968, Prague had a different feel to Berlin is that about right, then again it didnt suffer the same level of bombardment as cities in the east

henry

Buckeye, glad to see you are home!

GUS

So when the COMMIE BERLIN WALL came down in 89-90, which direction did ANGELA MERKEL migrate???

EAST?? Fucking absurd.

Another Bob

The Prague center was did have a very different feel to me Narc.

But the drive in from Munich still revealed mile after mile of the same dirty apartment blocks seen outside Berlin in the outskirts.

Narciso

West, like max zorin, the scenery chewing villain of a view to a kill

Captain Hate

According to Timothy Snyder in Bloodlands, the further east you went, the more brutal were the concentration camps. Since he wrote that he's gone full Patterico, which is really too bad because unlike the loon, he produced at least one item of lasting value.

Narciso

Where do maduros nephew's party in Spain, where do the sons of top officials in the Cuban government by property well Spain but also Tampa florida.

GUS

One item of lasting value, and tons of horse shit that destroys that one item.

Jane

ABob,

When were you there last?

Narciso

Like eith vollmam Europe central is a master piece, his follow up work from meh to ridiculous like that screed against the carbon apocalypse that includes nuclear power.

MissMarple2

I was an Air Force wife in West Berlin from 1967 to 1969. (My son was born there in the US Army hospital.)

Because my husband was a Russian linguist for the Security Service, we were required to leave West Berlin on the US Army Duty Train. It left West Berlin and went through East Germany to West Germany.

I have never forgotten looking out the window and seeing a farmer plowing his field, and his wife was pulling the plow!

That is how far behind the East was from the West.

Another Bob

Germany? About ten years ago Jane. (My personal and business travels have been focused elsewhere since.)

GUS

Still is Miss Marple. There is no comparison.
What the dumbest dumbfucks among us seek, is something that CANNOT EXIST, nor would it EVER exist in a system that had soviet style over lords with their SHITTY CHEAP GOVERNMENT BOOTS on our necks. So long as an IDIOT-OLOGY exists that makes heroes out of CASTRO, GUEVARA, CHAVEZ, KIM et al, we cannot co-exist with THE FULL COMMIE in AMERICA.
Who lives in LUXURY in any SOCIALIST/FULL COMMIE NATION???
Pelosi and her husband. Feinstein and her husband....etc etc etc. IT'S ABSURD.

What is BILL AYERS net worth???

Captain Hate

narc, have you read any Danilo Kis, to whom Vollman dedicated Europe Central? A Tomb for Boris Davidovich and The Encyclopedia of the Dead are highly recommended; like relocating Borges to the Bloodlands. His other works are good too but are strangely autobiographical that can be confusing.

I hate correcting my own daughter, but @PressSec should mention the "no help" from the Senate GOP as well. @POTUS & his team did all the lifting. Many GOP Senators actually pulled in opposite direction.

I told you guys Governor Huckabee was fed up."

Yah know. If VP Pence doesn't step up after PDJT terms out ... I feel myself warming up to former Gov Huckabee.
Never saw his appeal before but I am 100% in line with what I hear him saying these days.
Plus, maybe we'd get Sarah doing a reprise on her role at Press Sec'ty of the US.

I'm sure his utility executive daddy left him a huge pile, like when he'd spring him from jail while all the brothers he agitated were stuck. Very rebbolooshunary imo.

Ah revolutionaries like Guevara mao ho chi Minh all common men sarc.

GUS

Capn, I checked on the INTERWEB as to Ayers wealth.
It's comical. You and I certainly remember the first kerfluffle about FACE BOOK, TWITTER, and the My Space shit 5,6,7 years ago.
Anyone DUMB ENOUGH to believe their HORSE SHIT, should never breed.
There is NOTHING on the NET, that I believe, unless I can triangulate and verify.
THE FULL COMMIE is in control. It's about the BENJAMINS, and Not, THE LENIN'S.
The most disgustingly rich among us, have NO CONCERN nor any FEAR of ever being held accountable.
They have paid off far too many politicians.

Prague was untouched by the boms and remains a beautiful barog=que city. I was there just after the Russians left and the economy was dismal. The top gastronom in the city displayed with pride a can of pineapples. we had to have reservations a week in advance to eat a salad in the only decent restaurant in town. There was beer and bread and not much else. Even the good hotel we stayed in had dreadful food--breakfast was instant coffee, some dry rolls obviously left over from the previous night's dinner and some jam so denatured it looked and tasted like gelled kool aid. It took hours to get permission to get gas for the car so we could leave. Today it's full of coffee shops and restaurants and consumer items.

clarice

s/b bombs and baroque.

Narciso

Ortega that creepy bidenesque figure now running Nicaragua was of working class but fonseca the founder of the sandinistas was not, some suspect Ortega found a way to get rid of him.

GUS

Take a stroll down MEMORY LANE. This is ABC FULL COMMIE CRAP of course, but look at where Obama stands, and look at where ROMNEY is a limp wristed pussy.
All of this in retrospect. Note how ABC, mentions that ROMNEY doesn't explain how he will MAKE UP REVENUE from lower tax rates.
IT'S AS IF THOSE AT ABC are completely deluded uninformed, misinformed and economically illiterate.
It's scary as POTUS DJR has shown the CLOWN COMMIES.
They FULL COMMIE LEFT and the MFM, (same thing), will not recognize the TRUTH, because of their IDEOLOGY/RELIGION.

Roosevelt and Truman, had no problem with RUSSIA.

We were out at dinner and I was reading the deer stories, and heading back home a bit later, I started to turn into our driveway and two deer jump out of the bushes on the right and run across the grass and into the woods on the left. If I hadn't been paying attention, I would have had a deer/car collision IN MY OWN DRIVEWAY. Just dayum.

Another Bob

Agree about Prague Jane. Budapest wasn’t bad either IMO.

I’m curious about Bucharest. A Romanian friend and I had a combined business-pleasure plan to go in the late-90’s, but it fell through.

Narciso

They don't like leftists in Guatemala, that's been made quite clear that's why the prog kangaroo court that dispatched the last administration was sent packing.

Jane

Oh I loved, loved loved Budapest.

Captain Hate

I used to work with a programmer from Romania; she had no desire to go back and visit. Her response was "are you kidding me?"

My pal Peter, the drummer in my band for nearly 40 years, is the son of parents who escaped the 3rd Reich, getting to AMERICA through BUDAPEST.
They are German by origin.

Captain Hate

No wonder Pelosi and Shecky want their "asylum seekers".

Another Bob

My friend still had friends there Cap.

He had an interesting story about how his family got out of Ceaucescu Romania when they learned the Securitate was interested in his professor father.

Was also arrested for wearing his hair too long. Once in America he grew it out to shoulder-blade length and kept it long. EE grad from Case, as it happens.

Narciso

What happened when the civil war was over, in part because someone granted Jennifer harbours beau's request 'I want to be like che' that last chapter is problematic. Not a few of lower level soldiers who had certain skills joined the Zetas particularly those from their ranger equivalent the kaibiles

GUS

It just continues to spiral toward a complete melt down for the FULL COMMIES.
The notion, that asylum is a RIGHT for anyone to claim residence here is silly.
VERY SILLY.

Captain Hate

AB,

You should read Revolution 1989 by Victor Sebestyen. It starts out with when they Swiss cheesed the Ceaucescus. The soldiers paid money to be part of the firing squad. The original Danube of Thought was scared shitless but Elena was a bitch to the end, calling the soldiers sons of whores. To paraphrase Augustus McCray, she's the type of woman that's easy to hang. Kind of like how I want the Clinton Crime Family to terminate.

The whole book is good.

Narciso

Of course there was collateral damage from torricelli's stunt to impress Bianca Jagger. At that time. John Deutsch who would later prove to be extraordinarily negligent took that opportunity to purge hundreds of our assets.

Mueller’s presser gave Democrats the false impression that more information = their political advantage.

It’s the opposite.

Soon Americans will learn more about the report’s corrupt origins and deeply flawed conclusions. If our media decides to dig deeper, they’ll learn too.
============================

I am not holding my breath on our media deciding to dig deeper, unless they decide it might keep them from indictments.

Narciso

I should have put that in quotes be had scads of classified documents on his home computer, like it was a lending library.

From Prague we went on to Budapest--tons of food, beauty shops and gastronoms and wonderful restaurants . Nicely dressed women everywhere..and this was just after the Russians got out. The contrast in life between Prague and Budapest was startling.

MissMarple2

I hadn't heard about thisL

Jailed for killing an Afghan insurgent who was trying to take his gun. President Trump pardoned him and he is now a free man.

Another Bob

I’ll look for it Cap thanks.

Through this friend I became acquainted with some Romanian expats. One couple left after ‘89, both were part of the Timisoara uprising, she ended up getting shot, but survived it.

Almost to a person, they’d all have wanted to be part of the firing squad.

Narciso

We had hoped Fidel would go the same way but thanks to the Europeans who tended him a life lline, hugo boas who used to design suits for the nazis set up shop there.

Nope. But then I was too startled to really notice.

We see them in the woods frequently but eating up my bushes in the front yard - not so much. They devoured an entire eunymous(sp) bush in the back yard. It never recovered. I haven't inspected to see what they were munching on tonight.

I just thought that it was a coinky dink that y'all were talking deer and voila get home to... deer. God is the ultimate jokester.
