Venticello is Splendido!

By Ed Attanasio, published on Jan 3, 2008

...counterpart, a guy named Paul Henry. Paul who, you ask? Exactly. And as I have written in many of my past reviews, I truly believe that Italy has produced the finest cuisine in the history of mankind. People can make arguments for each and every culture’s food -- Asia, Spain, Mexico, Germany, Australia, Africa, Britian, Portugal, Russia -- every country has some amazing traditional dishes that have been passed down through the ages, and each is arguably superior to the next. The U.S. doesn’t really have a cuisine, unless you consider macaroni and cheese and meat loaf... (more)

...is reading Hitler's playbook to plan world domination - and that is the stated intent of both. From the Reichstag fire to the landing at Nuremberg to the motto of "Gott Mit Uns" to the unprovoked invasion and occupation of Iraq to the insistence that peace was the ultimate goal, the line is unbroken and unwavering. - It may not be Nazi Germany - it might be a lot worse.” http://www.truthout.org/cgi-bin/artman/exec/view.cgi/4/3201 http://tvnewslies.org/html/bush_lies.html http://www.memoryhole.net/kyle/2004/10/whybushmustgo100_facts.html Why Bush Must Go (100 Facts) (more)

When is interrogation considered torture?

By Amo, published on Dec 20, 2007

However, if you were Jewish and living in Nazi occupied Germany in the mid 1940’s, it would be almost inevitable that you would be tortured and perhaps murdered, and there would be no doubt as too its definition. However when we ask the same question of ourselves, the answer of torture becomes once again clouded in ideology, as demonstrated recently by the CIA’s foolish destruction of interrogation video tapes, foolish in that we’ve allowed ideology to once again drive the debate to the point of being unable to set an effective policy, and in so doing we’ve created another scandal and... (more)

So Long to Solo

By Ed Attanasio, published on Sep 29, 2007

...chemistry, especially if they’re winning. If the U.S. team loses to Norway with Scurry in goal, Ryan will look even worse. He had better pray for a consolation win, not that anyone cares at this point. No one remembers anyone except the championship team. Defending champion Germany will face Brazil in Sunday's championship game. The Brazil loss marked the second straight time the United States has fallen in the semifinals of a Women's World Cup, failing to repeat titles of 1991 and '99. Solo, 25, in a widely seen interview, said Ryan had made the "wrong decision" by... (more)

This Artist's Work is for the Dogs

By Ed Attanasio, published on Sep 1, 2007

...I recently ran into Gabriele Bungardt and her web site, www.ipaintyourpet.net. Bungardt, who lives and works in Alameda, Calif. is an incredible animal portrait artist. She is well-known throughout northern California as well as throughout the United States and Europe. Bungardt grew up in Germany in the ‘50s with dogs – lots of them. Her father trained hunting dogs and owned many wirehaired dachshunds and German pointers over the years. Gabriele’s fondest childhood memories include her adventures following dogs into the woods surrounding her home town. Their... (more)

Trump, O'Reilly, Grace and Carlson get show on Fox News!

By Shawn Norris, published on Aug 10, 2007

...when all is thought to be lost and the bar is set as low as possible, Nancy Grace crawls out of the bridge she lives under and blitzkriegs the streets of Los Angeles, spitting on homeless people, screaming psychotic life-threatening rhetoric and in one very special segment actually travels to Germany in order to find Hitler’s remains so that the good people at Fox can clone him and give him his very own talk show aptly named “The Aryan Agenda” with co-host Grand Wizard David Dukes. Of course everyone knows that they’ll have to dig up Joe Goebbels too in order to... (more)

Safeguards of Humanity and the Honor of a People

By Credo, published on Jul 22, 2007

... the messenger, as blacks and many other individuals call for such measures to be meet by the government. I am most unfettered to have to say this but the idea of reparations are not an entirely new concept, as Jews have been repaired and are still being given reparations for their holocaust in Germany, The U.S. has a history of paying reparations. They paid the Indians in the form of land, money, free taxes etc. In 1991, the U.S. paid $20,000 to each Japanese Americans that were put into interment camps in WWII. The United States and the allied nations paid more than $14 billion in... (more)

Americans a necessary evil

By lamarqueza, published on May 29, 2007

...with her friends, and on Saturday morning she was gushing like a schoolgirl to me about this great guy she met. We'll call him U. She said he was the sweetest, most decent guy; he's a doctor studying his specialty, and lives in the Medical Center. He also told her he was born and raised in Germany but his family is from Turkey and he considers himself Turkish. He speaks German and Turkish fluently along with a few other languages. My roommate was obviously struck by Cupid's arrow that night and I was genuinely happy for her. Any woman would be quite taken by such a sweet, charming,... (more)

Sweet Pride O' Mine

By RG Daniels, published on May 23, 2007

...for the W—college kids. Because when you really sit down and think about it, the U.S. still has the best basketball in the world. It’s called the NBA. The last I checked international players were clamoring for their break into The League. If you honestly think Lithuania vs. Germany is a showcase of the world’s best talent then maybe you should watch a Suns/Spurs game and get back to me. It’s downright hilarious how U.S.A. basketball is perceived as a crisis and a poor example of international competition. Pardon the arrogance, but you think we care?... (more)
