I don't know what you try to get at but as far as I know ETHIOPIA IS MADE OF MANY TRIBES even though some tribes more than the other but still it is ONE ETHIOPIA.

Ask me after I visit in the spring of 2009.

Then, I will be able to give you my answer from the perspective of both an Ethiopian and African American.

I think we are very simple and neutral people and focused in our business(i am an exception). One thing i like about gurage is that the fact that i can get alone with any tribe people. I love all ethiopian

Gurages have beautiful land even if i am from addis. i love the place where my parents grow up.Kitfo and Kochu are my favirot thing....

I'm canadian, so no one. We had our election 3 weeks ago, and I voted for the party that actually is like european social democrats (think dennis kucinich, bernie sanders or cynthia mckinney).

I would vote democrat for president in a close state, maybe bob barr in a state that was way out of the way (though there are many things i don't like about his policies, but I have a libertarian streak). In all states, unless i know of major unpunished political corruption in a cadidates case, I would likely vote for the democrat for congress and senate. I just mentioned your senate races in MS because the democrats have a shot at the musgrove race. Also, Obama has like 1/5 chance of winning missisippi, but it could be much greater if all of the democrats core support comes out to vote, as is happening in a lot of early voting (Georgia is reporting twice the normal black turn out in advance polls).

I think I will pass through there on my way to Oromo land.

How would I know if someone is Gurage unless I ask?

I have tried kitfo but not kochu. It is good and spicy.

Oh, I see.

How is Canada? It has been a few years since I spent the New Year in beautiful Ontario.

We will watch the polls, okay?

Well we reelected the conservative prime minister (though we have a paliamentary system, so it's not the same type of deal). Our government is in a minority position so the opposition can defeat measures passed, though sometimes they don't to avoid elections.

Weather-wise, things are nice because it's fall, but it may be a colder winter this year (its been a cold fall). We had snow flurries this week, which is about a month early. Our economy is starting to feel the ripple effects from the giant market failure in the U.S. Our economy is so tied to the U.S. that our national sovereignty is almost now a figment of our immagination. We're still safer here (toronto) than any city in the U.S. of the same siz (Toronto is bigger than houston but smaller than Chicago). I don't know what else to add.

What's mississippi like?

Mississippi is growing at a rapid pace here in Desoto County.

Similar to your comment above, our local economy is very much tied to Memphis, Tennessee, being only three miles from the state border.

The tourism industry has added to our economy. The state is known for its casinos. I am not quite sure if that is good or bad, however.

At present, we are still in the final stages of what is known as an Indian summer. Similar to a desert, the morning weather can be 32 degrees F with unpredictable midday temperatures that often soar over 80 degrees F.

Humid, sometimes arid, and warm...

However, when it rains it pours... winds from the gulf stream can cause stormy weather, especially after a hurricane. Fortunately, we live more inland in this part of the state so we usually only experience the aftermath of hurricanes and pray that tornadoes stay far away...

Our state government is pretty much stable, despite the nation's semi-state of depression...

I agree with semunee 100 percent.I mean first of all ur question is formulated in such a way that gurages are not part of ethiopia.As semunee said,luckily Ethiopia is a big country with too many tribes.Gurage is one of them.U could have changed ur question like for example"what do amharas think about gurages?"or what do oromos think about gurages?Me personally I love gurages.I am amhara.I have a girl friend who is a gurage.I always joke with her that she is going to sell me one day.I love her to death.Quite honestly,I do not know anybody who hates gurages.
Why would I ask "What do Amharas think of Gurages" That would be someone just looking for trouble.

I'm just asking how do ALL tribes/people view the Gurages...

sometimes I really laugh at not the content of ur post,not at how u have a backward mentality,not at how uneducated u are but at the very language u use to put ur message forward.I have been telling u since I started visiting this forum that ur english sucks.As for adopting a monkey from ethiopia,no problem,stop by where I live in Austin,texas and we can go from there.Bring an empty coffin with u so that u can rest there on your way to eritrea via ethiopia.Have a good day and do not break any dishes while washing all those dishes.

please do not complicate things and do not misinterpret what I tried to say.I was only trying to tell u that ur question was wrongly put together.I do not know u might be one gurage from the thousands I know that does not think as being an ethiopian.If that is the case,ur question is fine.I do not know how to explain it to u,u do not seem to get it.I have nothing aginst gurages,I love,I adore gurages but do not come here with a question which took a wrong turn and try to ignite a firestorm.

Hi my good friend.Why bother to explain to a retarded brain dead FUG that is very easy to understand.I believe he is genetically deformed.
