Also, I appreciate your frustration in dealing with your Italian cousins. Some of my own are German, from Germany (I'm a first generation American). We have a tradition at Thanksgiving of going around the dinner table and saying what we are thankful for.

Last Thanksgiving I went all the way to Milwaukee, where six German relatives were present who had flown over from the old country, and I had to listen to three disgusting hours of European Bush Derangement Syndrome. One old cousin stated that he had read where Airforce 1 had flown into Ohio in 2004 and picked up ALL of the voting machines in Ohio. My mother's sister, to her credit, finally got pissed off enough to tell the old fool that he probably would have believed anything Hitler said also.

Anyway, to make a long story short, when my turn came to say what I was thankful for, I said that I was thankful for Adolf Hitler. THAT brought absolute silence and some facial expressions which you might see on people watching an imminent train wreck.

I said that if Hitler hadn't started World War Two, my grandparents wouldn't have been bombed out of their home, they wouldn't have become displaced persons, they wouldn't have then emigrated to the United Staes, and I might still be a goddamned European.

It was pretty tense turkey after that.

Wow. What a response.

My niece’s German citizen fiance sat down at her father’s dinner table and began knocking Bush and the US. My brother, his father in-law to-be, told her fiance that he wasn’t welcome at his table. They married and moved to Germany. Buh-bye.
