One of my ethnic backrounds is German, I am also Czeck, Indian, and possibly Russian. The capitol of Germany is Berlin. The estimated population is 82,424,609. Its religions are :Protestant 34%, Roman Catholic 34%, Muslim 3.7%, unaffiliated or other 28.3%. The official language of Germany is German, with over 95% of the population speaking German as their first language. Minority languages include Sorbian, spoken by 0.09% in the east of Germany; North and West Frisian, spoken around the Rhine estuary by around 10,000 people, or 0.01%, who also speak German. They are a very civilized society and have lots of manners. I am 25% German so I am proud of my ethnic group.

We should use images because thay enhance that post. They make it stand out and the point that you are explaining is clearer. They make it look better and as always "a picture speaks a thousand words". To add images you can go to add a photo by uploading from your computer or you can link it to an image copywrite free site. Get to a website that lets you download or copy and that doesn't have copywrite. To get the attribution you should check if it is OK to download from the site and if the author put a copwrite on it or not.

Basketball is really fun. It is awesome to run around on the court and pass and make hoops. More people should play because it is so fun. I think that it is one of the best sports ever and that people should play it more. If you don't think basketball is fun than you should be mad at yourself. It's that great.

The recount is going to tale place due to a 8,855 vote difference. The recount is going to include running the machines again and have thm recount. If that doesn't work than people will have to count them by hand. They than have to send them to a councel to pass the votes and make sure that it is fair. Republicans are calling a 400,000 error count in Hennepin County suspicous. They are going to recount to make sure that when the computers were erroring for about 45 minutes that nothing was going wrong with the counting of the votes. They say that if there is a winning margin of less than 10,500 votes than it will trigger an automatic recount in the system.

The Winona Daily News put out this article about Tom Emmer. The ad is trying to get you to vote for Emmer. The ad uses persuasion and is informative. The ad uses claim to tell you about how Emmer will do good in office. I think the ad is good because he doesn’t tear down his opponents or do anything to be harmful to them in any way. I think I would vote for him because of the fact that he isn’t a negative person and I haven’t really seen any negative ads from him. It’s mostly the other candidates that are using negativity to tear down the opponents and build themselves up. Try this link to get to the article I used Emmer Article

I don’t think books should be banned because of just one person. If it were an entire country than maybe it could be banned from just there, but just because one person doesn’t like one part of the book doesn’t mean it should be banned. I think one person can freely express their feelings about the book and see if others agree. One person may not like a book but that doesn’t mean that everyone else around them also doesn’t think it’s appropriate. Once it is banned people might want to buy it even more because it’s banned. If the book is banned the author will have put all of that work into hardly anything. I think it’s pointless.
