    I believe blood quantums are the governments way to breed us out of existance !


    They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

    There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

    Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
    It's not me....I think you're an idiot !

              We are a divided Nation on that theme since World War II. To me it is in the line and appropiate. It is still part of a funeral with military honours of the German Bundeswehr.

              That song was composed during the Napoleonic Wars and published in 1812.

              We sang that song at School during Music lessons. We had a teacher of 70 years back than.

              Ich hatt einen Kameraden,
              einen bessern findst du nicht.
              Die Trommel schlug zum Streite,
              er ging an meiner Seite
              im gleichen Schritt und Tritt,
              im gleichen Schritt und Tritt.

              Eine Kugel kam geflogen:
              Gilt sie mir gilt sie dir?
              Ihn hat es weggerissen,
              er liegt vor meinen Füßen,
              als wärs ein Stück von mir.

              Will mir die Hand noch reichen,
              derweil ich eben lad:
              Kann dir die Hand nicht geben,
              bleib du im ewgen Leben
              mein guter Kamerad!

              I had a comrade,
              you'll never find a better one.
              The drum was beating for a fight,
              he walked by my side
              in the same step and kick,
              in the same step and kick.

              A bullet came flying:
              Is it meant for me?
              It tore him away,
              he lies at my feet,
              like it was a piece of me.

              Still want to give me a hand,
              while I load:
              I can't shake your hand,
              you stay in eternal life
              my good comrade!

                Many of our songs (of all tribes) contain similar messages/stories. I hoped it would be honorable.

                  It is.

                  It is a very sad song and music. And it is not heroic glorification of war and death.

                  During the Napoleonic war, Germany was divided in many princely states and some large states with the effect, some were than French controlled, that neighbours fought for the French and against the French and killing each other.

                  Interpretation
                  THere are other interpretations and since 1949 there is controversy about the song. Depends, whom you ask.
