Food / The best potato pancakes? [30]

The key to good potato cakes is the potatoes you select

Dunno how they're called in the US but in Europe go for "Bintjes potatoes" they're the best for baking & frying

Love / Question: Do Polish girls prefer married men? [59]

The opposite religion or the true religion is the divine guidance by your creator (God). God knows whats best for man kind to live a happy life here and after dead. The divine revelation in Islam, deals with the past, present, future.

You just did it again. Religion can be helpful for some of mankind, but kind words from a person to another person help more than endless theological blabber.. This is not a conversion-forum..

History / Jews...and their Polish experience [520]

More severe punishments should be inflicted upon those who dare question The Holocaust

Why so? It's ridiculous.. before I begin my endless rethoric.. I'm on your side, but seriously it's so one-sided. Every man on earth can change his view on history except when it comes down to the Jewish/Armenian Holocaust (& others)

Now, don't get me wrong, I despise people who question the holocaust or try to tell me that not 6 but "only 3" millions were killed or w/ever I think it's disguisting & it's wrong & they're pretty much ****** up..

But is it worthy of punishment? I one wants to rewrite French history, he can.. but if one wants to rewrite Holocaust he gets imprisoned in some countries. I cannot state enough that I despise these people.. however, you should be able to write -whatever you want- on a sheet of paper & not be imprisoned for it.

It's what Europeans fought for, for decades & no one is going to take that away from me.

Love / Why english men like polish women ? [126]

Wiem co to znaczy.. what I was saying is that being this way is maybe their way to seduce a girl, which obviously works great for them ;)

They do not think about sex:)

Ooohh yes they do.. oh trust me they do.

But anyway, I wouldn't know, there are plenty of other topics on this forum that tell stories of how great Polish men are.. so ;)

hm... chyba mnie nie rozumiecie.

Well.. the thing is.. you don't know if it's "bez podtekstow"

As for opening the doors & such for a lady.. there's a convo in another thread where the opposite is said, that English blokes don't do that but Polish do.. it's all about how the guy was brought up & gently/friendly he is ;)

Love / Foreigner's opinion about polish ladies [304]

As for that ignorant moron "Grzegorz" who's calling people a 'stupid n', some of us may be playas but at least we are not drunken louts who trick their women into sex trades - just so that they can buy more vodka.

Are you "Londoner" ? I think you are..

History / Complaint about Israel from Poland [22]

Well I'm surprised a paper such a Ha'arezt published it, I thought it was quite secular.

Well, I think that's the point where we differ. I'm less conservative & more liberterian. And I'm quite torn to be honest. Although they depict my people in such a dreadful way, I still think they have the right to do so. However, freedom of speech ends where another's man's freedom is trespassed. I find it hard to create an opinion on this...

So, as polish person how do you like to be placed in one basket with German Nazi criminals? Do you feel responsible for holocaust? I don't! Try to be ironic about this.

Well, it's a heated discussion & I certainly don't feel responsible for holocaust. You know it, I know, the whole world knows...

Like those people who deny Jewish/Armenian holocaust.. let them have it. If they want to rewrite history, sure.. the world knows better.

I guess somehow, that after moving out of Poland I kinda lost the "nationalistic reflex" I would've had if I still lived there, but I still don't see things so black & white as you do.

History / Complaint about Israel from Poland [22]

You said that, not me. But polish-jewish relations are more complicated than you can even imagine. And they are becoming more “complicated” because Israel is promoting view of Poland as country equally responsible for holocaust with Germany.

I was mixing a one third of sarcasm, a splash of irony & finished it off with a dash of cynicism. In cast you hadn't noticed. I know how complicated they are, I am Polish, I follow Polish newspapers. You can very well defend yourself despite of the "American P.C." I just can't stand such remarks as "Jews can spit on us" You're entitled to your own opinion but so am I.

Not really, but It's true that If something like this was published in a Polish mainstream newspaper, there would be a huge aj waj waj about "Polish antisemitism" around the world. There shouldn't be doubel standards for Jews and Goys. That's all.

Well, I don't live in Poland the whole year round any more, so I don't know how society would react on that, all I know is that they still sell those "Jewish jokes books" in "kiosks" accross Poland. It's a small book with a jewish man on the front depicted having money coming out of his pockets & a huge nose. So.. double standards.. not too sure about that..

Love / Question: Do Polish girls prefer married men? [59]

Ladybird, you need to study Islam, where man and women are segregated in social times, and Muslim women in Islam are modestly dressed, and men and women are obliged to lower their gses. your husband saw this attractive polish girl, socialize with u, saw her beauty and could not resist her. Can you Imagine how Islam deal with this social problem.?

themodernreligion.com/w_main.htm

Religion doesn't need to be involved in every single sociological discussion there is. Thank you.

because they are allowed to have more than one woman

It's a practice that used to be allowed because of social issues at that time. Just as the bible has (see: mormons). The thing is that these books were written thousands of years ago & do not reflect the state of current society. So if you were to interpret things literally, yes you can marry multiple women.

Luckely most rational muslims & christians know how to interpret the bible by understanding which statements are timeless & which aren meant in their own timeframe. Unfortunately some people don't which results in things such as this:

godhatesfags.com/main/index.html

And now ot: I don't think any woman prefers a married man. Why would she ever go through so much trouble? If they really love each other, it can be true & affectionate but there will always be something in the way.

History / Complaint about Israel from Poland [22]

So, Jews can spit on us but we can’t defend ourselves because of American political correctness?

Yes, of course, it's all the jews fault, they can spit on us blabla they can do what they want & we're so poor & defenseless against the bad jewish man, yada yada /yawn

I wonder if you thought the same about the cartoons published in the Danish newspaper a year ago.. nah probly not, you probly thought they were making a scene out of it.. /yawn

But isn't America and Israel two heads of the one beast?
Does America run Israel or does Israel run America?
In God we trust, all others... Euros!!!

The USA are the prime financiators of the state of Israel, a whole lotta money goes to Israel each year, not even counting weapons & such. They keep it alive, it would've gone bankcrupt like 30 years ago, Israel is an enormous military power for a country so small & posesses nuclear weapons. Couldn't have done it on it's own.

USA, Canada / My personal (Polish) view on USA. [105]

I heard recently that 40% of American government revenue is spent on companies like Halliburton. No wonder there is no money left for normanl functions of government.

You have an article or source about that? That figure seems way too much.

I agree on that, I understand what communism means, my parents literally had to fled from Poland when I was still small because of it. I know what you're saying.

But it's something that has to be done by the juridical branch & not "the twins"

News / IS LECH KACZYNSKI DOING A GOOD JOB? [43]

Allright, I accept that. But asking everyone to admit if they worked for the communist govt. & making their daily lives depend on it is not the right way. It's pretty much a witch hunt. Which is why I can understand why the court deemed it as unconstitutional.

These clear cases need to be adressed one by one through justice and courts of law & not massively through the ones in power.

And even then I don't know if I'm fully 100% for that, as to me personally, it's something that stands in the way of the future. But I can understand that Poles that lived through it & have profound memories about it do not want to forgive & forget that easily.

If it's unconstitutional to punish former communist criminals then the constitution needs to to ammended.

So everyone would worked with the former communist govt. no matter what & how & what force was used is a criminal?
