Wouldn't it make sense to look for job creators amongst our own class of entrepreneurs? Then you wouldn't have to go to europe to praise some model of socialism they tell us we should be like. This is the dumbest and most arrogant Harvard grad I have seen, after Obama of course.

Remember the statement a couple of years ago..."...if you think this is something wait until ..5 years from now..." well we lead the nation in unemployment and so far I haven't seen a lot of help from the European trips. Perhaps Ms. Grandholm will like it in Germany and stay

The Government is headiing for Germany and where is America heading ... read on

Taken from the Bible Acts 17.
26. From one man (Adam) he (God) made EVERY nation of men,...
(note God did not create just one of them).

The West is expecting all humans to become one race (only then are they not labelled racist). America is losing their identity by mixing. It is not Gods will. Both black and whites in South Africa have a bad history behind them. Apartheid oppressed the blacks but the whites were brutally raped or killed by them (these crime still taking place today).
Land was not the only problem in S.A. Apartheid started when races clashed, fear of the future together, threat of Communism and black rule.
Neither party was innocent as both sides did wrong. Thousands of whites who were killed are still being ignored ... as if they never existed. The whites are reminded daily of the blacks who were fallen.
All whites are viewed as the only culprits but let God will judge on the end. Not every white abused the system.
In early years the whites felt oppressed because of the blacks multiplying. The Government not the people brought Apartheid in.
All races in S.A. are a proud people and want to keep their own identity.
No one has to get into bed with the other to prove they are not racist.
Whites are NOT walking around the streets crying ... I hate you.
We DO RESPECT other races. Whites want to keep their blue eyes and blonde hair and not inherit the dominant black gene for their offspring (a destructive force that will cause the annihilation of the white races). Both sides feel the same. Blacks in S.A. do not want their offspring to turn brown.
We laugh, cry BUT DO NOT SLEEP TOGETHER except for a few. We work, hug and play together but WE S.A. WHITES WILL NEVER GIVE UP OUR IDENTITY FOR ANY OTHER RACE.
The blacks cherish their own culture and right fully so. We whites want fairness under black rule. Affirmative Action and Black Economic Empowerment is blocking this. We are living Apartheid in reverse.

Never believe that a black world is ideal. America is fast heading that way. Just like your Nassa tapes were lost, you are slowly losing your white races.

Well that is true buy American Made Products. How about giving the unemployed an extension so they can survive??? Her wasted money on traveling over seas could buy some gas for our vehicles so we can search for a job.

She is getting in all the world traveling she can before she is out of office. What did she promise? Lot's. What did she provide? Higher Debt. She has used her time to travel all over Michigan in style and all over the world in style at our expense. Bet your booty she is not staying at Micro Motel eating McDonald's.

Germany gets more than 30% of it's electricity from nuclear power. If you want clean energy, go nuke.

Germany will be a net importer of about 4 terawatt hours (TW·h) of power in 2011 after exporting 14 TW·h last year, Deutsche Bank said in a July 5, 2011 report. The German system needs about 10 billion euros ($14.3 billion) of upgrades by 2020 if the country is to stop using neighboring networks, according to the German Energy Agency (DENA), a researcher part-owned by the government. The upper house of parliament approved a bill July 8 to speed up improvements.
