    The leftist press and television in Germany has stoked the fires of anti-Americanism. The SPD runs on anti-American rhetoric and socialist fairy tales. For years, the SPD has purchased German elections with socialist promises that has made the economy weak and uncompetitive. Perhaps Germans would have preferred that America had lost the Cold War. Maybe Germans yearned for the military and economic benefits of the Warsaw Pact. Current German attitudes must mean that America wasted its time spending hundreds of billions of dollars across more than fifty years protecting Deutschland from the CCCP. Germans are upset about GM owning that loser Opel? Too bad. Opel would have long been belly-up if not for GM. Should Americans take the German attitude and moan about MB owning Chrysler?

    Pop Quiz Time!

    Question Number One:
    Which German administration in the last century dealt this heavily in conspiracy theories, came to power under these current unemployment conditions, hated America vehemently, and was characterized by rising levels of anti-semitism, not unlike today?

    I do trust I won't have to make this multiple choice.
