    4. Are there German traditions in America?
    5. Do you know what happened on November 9th 1989?
    6. What happened on January 30th 1933?
    7. Who is Angela Merkel?
    8. What do you really know about my country?

    1. My brotherinlaw is German, still does business there and tells me that the Germany is very European Socialist with 6 or 8 week paid vacation annually. Nice deal if you can get it. The people are decent and honorable and if push came to shove I'd like to have them at our side rather than fighting against us.

    2. The only German that comes to me is the lady who sang 99 Luft Balloons, this is not a good question for me.

    3. American schools are terrible at teaching history including our own, the American Left controls the education establishment and all you learn about Germany is Kaiser Wilhelm and Hitler. But don't feel bad because I think that fully 90% of American high-school student would fail if they were asked to identify 3 of Americas Founding Fathers and that's with spotting them George Washington.

    4. Octoberfest, way cool!!

    5. November 9th 1989 -- The Day Reagan's call to "Tear Down This Wall" came to fruition. Do you study Ronald Reagan? The American Left teaches that he was only an actor who had no effect on the world around him. Hopefully, you're not that ignorant

    6. January 30th 1933 -- Probably something to do with Hitler, who was a Leftist

    7. Angela Merkel is the German Chancellor (no Googling!!)

    8. I know very little.

    1. What do you think about Germany and the people there in general? Its long past time to shed any lingering guilt over the 1930's-1940's.

    2. Do you know any German celebrities? I don't even know any celebrities from here.

    3. Do you learn something about German History at School or when you go to College? Only superficially.

    4. Are there German traditions in America? Do the yule log and Christmas tree count?

    5. Do you know what happened on November 9th 1989? Freedom for the East Berliners as gates were opened and the wall became irrelevant.

    6. What happened on January 30th 1933? National Socialists take over. A mistake on a nationwide level which the world will never let you live down.

    7. Who is Angela Merkel? Currently the leader of your government.

    8. What do you really know about my country? Your ancestors gave the Romans fits, stopping them at the Rhine, destroying them at the Teutoburg Forest. You make some excellent automobiles and beer, and set the world standard for engineering excellence.
