  3. Is going to take another 9/11 or worse that have been happening already for people to wake up? It's just a matter of time folks. The ideology has to be defeated, and we will need a world effort.   
  4. Satire...   The remaining countries on his itinerary announced that they would rather “wait a month” and meet with the next President instead.
  5. I think Trump is simply trying to keep the influx of terrorism at a minimum. I don't blame him one bit. Look what's going on where you live. It wasn't that way during the 8 years I spent there. I guess once the terrorists strikes the US and allowed based on the travel ban, maybe someone will wake up. It's only a matter of time for ALL of the western world.   
  6. Yesterday
  7. Einbürgerung in 7 years

    Did you take the Orientierungskurs? Or not that either? And did you take DTZ or a different language test? I hear that the language portion can be taken in parts- I wonder if just the last part of the language course or even just the Orientierungskurs would be sufficient?

  11. Einbürgerung in 7 years

    Yep, I want to  This would keep happening with many other folks and they(KVR/BAMF) need to realize this is year 2017. I had read gesetz online, and Integration Kurs is mentioned. Looks like BAMF and KVR are reading it too much literally and not considering I have already passed exams what Integration course folks would eventually do (even more than that). Forcing me to join Integration course is waste of govt's money as well as genuine place for somebody.   Could somebody guide how to proceed legally in this case? Should I ask for written response and go to the lawyer? Also, does it make any sense in the opinion of elite members of the forum? I want to fix this situation once for all.    
  12. What's got you flummoxed today?

      Did somebody forget to tell him that WW2 ended in 1945?
  13. Einbürgerung in 7 years

    You want to fight red tape with the BAMF and KVR? Good luck! Better wait one more year and apply again.
  14.   How is that not true? Can you imagine yourself going to Iraq and saying that to people there? "It's not true that your lives are less valuable than people in the west." (I chose west on purpose. Not to generalize but I don't want to put Manchester into this comparison, just an emotional choice at the moment.)   I say let's discuss empathy separately if you are interested. 
  15. Next game is on Sunday, May 28th, at 2:00pm at location 2. That's near Hirschau Biergarten, and is our regular Sunday spot.   Please bring both a light and a dark shirt.   Map to location 2: http://goo.gl/maps/1eal
  16. Germany conveyancing equivalent

    Buying a property is probably about the only thing that's easier in Germany than in the UK. If you are a cash buyer it's almost as easy as buying a loaf of bread at the bakery--the notary does all the work and you just sit at home and wait for the letters confirming the process to arrive. If you need a mortgage there's of course a lot of paperwork involved regarding the loan.
  17. Einbürgerung in 7 years

    Hi - I have completed 7 years in Germany and have been in employment since beginning of my stay. I had also done German language B1 exam, Leben in Deutschland and Einbürgerungstest. I recently visited KVR Einbürgerungsstelle for naturalization application.   The beamter said that I am not eligible for naturalization in 7 years as I have not done "Integration Kurs" although I have passed equivalent exams. I have done the exams only but have not participated in course as I have full time employment. I asked BAMF to issue me integration course certificate based on my exams certificates but they are also unable to do so as I have not participated in the integration classroom courses.   My point was even if I choose to do integration course classes for which I have completed the exams, it would be unfair for somebody who genuinely needs to do the classroom courses(as places are always limited). But this has not made any buzz either for BAMF or the beamter in KVR.   Any idea what else could be done?   Thanks
  18. Aerosmith/Foreigner Concert Tomorrow

    Einlass (entry): ca. 17:00 Uhr Foreigner: ca. 19:00 - 20:15 Uhr Aerosmith: ca. 21:00 - 22:30 Uhr (Änderungen jederzeit auch kurzfristig vorbehalten!)   https://www.muenchenticket.de/guide/tickets/14s7b/AEROSMITH+Special+Guest+FOREIGNER.html   Amazing what you can find with a Google search
  19. I was referring to the point jpgstefan and similar people trying to make about live of people of Iraq as less valuable than people of Manchester.   That is not true. Manchester is in Europe (even after Brexit it will be in Europe anyway), that's why what happens there touches us. Every 10 minutes someone dies, every day there is a terror attack somewhere, so we cannot expand out empathy to the whole world.
  20. What's got you flummoxed today?

    https://www.rawstory.com/2017/05/the-germans-are-bad-very-bad-trump-pledges-to-stop-german-car-sales-to-us/ ‘The Germans are bad, very bad’: Trump pledges to ‘stop’ German car sales to US President Donald Trump is ready to fight Germany in an auto battle according to Germany’s Der Spiegel. Trump got a chilly reception at the NATO summit in Belgium after attacking fellow members. But he was caught pledging a battle with German automakers as part of his anger with “back dues” he feels the country owes to NATO. As CNN’s Jake Tapper noted Thursday, “Trump seems to think it’s like a country club.” In a discussion about the country’s trade surplus, Trump said. “The Germans are evil, very evil.” “Look at the millions of cars they sell in the US, and we’ll stop that,” sources told Der Spiegel.   Apparently German cars are as dangerous as North Korean missiles. Does Germany now belongs to the axis of evil? Trump already sent two carriers to North Korea Will he also sent one to Germany?  
  21. Aerosmith and Foreigner are playing outside at Konigsplatz. May 26
  22.   I will say not necessarily to half of this (the first half). As for the second half, nobody would probably claim that anyway but political empathy does not need to operate at such a level (if that ever exists) anyway.   For experiencing sadness or grief in a way that starts from the nearest and moves outward, I will say not always. a) Because emotional bonding or value-related bonding does not have to correlate with space b ) we can totally reject a comparison that uses "more" and "less" but opt for "different" - which I think is able to better represent the width and breath of human experience.    More painful may not mean more "valuable" for everyone. Why can't we feel that "more intense" for some of these equally valuable people, given that the value of a person does not have to be limited with what we are able to feel for them?    As for family, in an incident where there is an elderly victim from my family and a completely stranger child, I will probably feel more intense pain based on personal emotional bonding in the case of the first one, but death of a child will give me a completely different pain. I can imagine consoling myself that the former at least had a long life with various experiences whereas the second one is more painful in its unique sense that bears no relation to the first. I can think the same during my own death, too.    Personal pain is very personal. I was crestfallen when my childhood dog died at a late age, and was pretty traumatised when I saw my cat that came into my life miraculously at a very bad personal time being run over by a motorcycle right in front of my eyes, that affected me very intensely but what is the meaning of that at a wider scale?    As for town. I cannot agree with that at all personally. I was raised in a 15 million city. It has good people, it has bad people. Why should they be more valuable than someone else in another town?    Surely our emotional capacity or life structure does not allow for extensive 5 stages of grief for everyone. But that doesn't have to be the criterion for an empathetic existence worldwide. Neither does feeling less justify disregarding more. This is more or less is more or less random, too.    And, there is something strange in this sort of pain. Sometimes one is so used to experiencing it themselves, your situation is normalized for you. And when it happens to someone else, from a different place, you feel another kind of intense pain. It feels like "I am used to this in some way but shit, it has started to happen to them as well." Life doesn't have to mean centering everything on your own situation at all times. (Not saying this because your comment implies that, just my experience. It would be shitty didactic and patronizing otherwise, I don't intend that.)     
  23. Filing a tax return - help on how to file

    Many thanks PandaMunich for your guidance and answers to my questions this evening...really appreciated. 
  24. Parents of minor German citizen

    @fraufruit The average German doesn't have a clue about nationality / immigration law. What I've been reading in this forum over the years about ex-pats relying on the misinformed advice of various in-laws supports my impression.   I am sure @engelchen can answer these questions when she checks the forum.   The OP could also ask at the embassy about residence in Germany based on the child's citizenship. I seem to remember that parents of a German child are entitled to settle in Germany.
