Back from vacation: Bush meets nazi & catholic tradition

Hi my blogging friends, I'm back from my summer vacation - calmed down and relaxed! I had thought of blogging quite often, but it was not possible for technical reasons. (Just a short update on my academic life: I've decided to finish up the dissertation and then look for another job, be it in academia or not. I'm ready to take a change!).

Interestingly, there was a huge country party at my grandma's place. There were several line dancing groups. It seems that in even - or in particular in - the tiniest villages over here there are line dancing groups. All the free time activities are organized in line dancing groups. They love the "American way of life", i.e. they love being WASPs and cowboys etc.

To me, this is so awful. It reminds me of the old nazi organizations where they had to exercise in groups. And the bad thing is, this is so following Bush. These people have strong catholic roots and thex just pick up that cowboy thing and I'm sure they even love Bush's politics. That event was even sponsored by our conservative party.
