    It's been fun and interesting reading the comments to my post. At first I was concerned that the topic might not fit in to the more political DailyKos scene.

    I got lots of tips like I should say I'm from California to avoid the negative reactions I may get. That doesn't really help because I am not interested in hiding my identity.

    Generally it can be hard to be a foreigner in Germany and being from the U.S. may make it harder. There is a lot of animosity around towards the US but I know that it's not directed at my as an individual.

    For me George Bush, Rush Limbaugh, Donald Trump or even Donald Duck do not represent America. America is my true home (even after 25 years abroad) and full of wonderful diversity, ingenuity, creativity and lots of very cool people. That is what I want to celebrate and nourish.
