Schwarzenegger again

Considering the way some Austrian politicians are behaving right now, claiming that a mob of Communists and leftist revolutionaries (huh?) drove Arnold Schwarzenegger to sever his ties with his former home town, you'd think there would really be more substantial things to talk about.

Like the death penalty, which is apparently okay for them as long as there's a law that says it's okay. Or at least a couple of Austrian politicians said something to that effect the other day. The Nazis passed a law that made the extermination of the Jews legal. I wonder if those politicians think if that was okay, too. After all, the existence of the law made killing the Jews perfectly legal, didn't it?

Who cares about Schwarzenegger anyway? I mean, good riddance and everything.

I can't find another word for the mayor's beseeching letter to Arnie than "urpeinlich".

"Urpeinlich" is "kein Ausdruck".

I care about Arnold, because he says he wants to be gov. for another term. Politicians might say the existence of a law allows for barbary; many citizens do not. 13 states don't even have the death penalty. In Calif., many oppose horrors like dragging a 76 year old man from his wheelchair to kill him (next victim up).

@Horst: you're absolutely right
