George, another great snapshot of WWII and the warning about the “non-assimilation problem” associated with uncontrolled mass migration. Thank you! Bring home some photos to share of "the problem".

Thanks George.

I spent a lot of time in Europe during the Cold War.
Your words have dredged up some wonderful memories.


I would love to see a post on this, when you get back.

“As the young Europeans have demonstrated, it’s easy to breed out such entrepreneurial spirit in a generation or two. In the meantime, everyone here agrees that the social programs are unsustainable and wringing out their economies.

The bottom line of all this is a feeling of hopeless inevitability.”

Bravo George.

Really really interesting George. Keep the stories coming/

Your insights confirm what has already happened in England...the western migration will eventually arrive full force in the U.S.. We have already seen too many "home-grown" terrorists radicals in America. We are following the same pattern of the last 20 years....sticking our head in the sand.

What a great journey George. I look forward to talking to you about it. And by the way, it's ok to be unconnected once in a while.

Bob Hobert

An excellent remembrance. Thank you George.

Merkel says German multicultural society has failed. German Chancellor Angela Merkel: "lmmigrants should learn to speak German"

Attempts to build a multicultural society in Germany have "utterly failed", Chancellor Angela Merkel says.

In a speech in Potsdam, she said the so-called "multikulti" concept - where people would "live side-by-side" happily - did not work.

Mrs Merkel's comments come amid recent outpourings of strong anti-immigrant feeling from mainstream politicians.

A recent survey showed that more than 30% of Germans believed Germany was "overrun by foreigners".

The study - by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation think-tank - also showed that roughly the same number thought that some 16 million of Germany's immigrants or people with foreign origins had come to the country for the social benefits.
