Work ethic of alcoholics

There is this one thing about the alcoholics - they’re not quitters, that's for sure.

My grandfather worked harder than any I have known operating the large punch press at US Steel by arm strength Popeye They called Him. Now this job is accomplished by a 10 ton Hydraulic cylinder. Yes, after work he drank and arm wrestled and spoke loudly. Then he went home to the wife who was about as tuff as he was just to put up with him. She out lived him by40 years. Ohter than a few bar fights He was basically a decent human . Just never knew when to quit ever!

Jokes aside, IMO in five years Poland will continue on the way to the economic prosparity, the wages will get closer, or maybe even equal, to the wages in Western Europe. Most migrant workers from the West will return home, bringing much needed capital and a different way of thinking. Hopefuly by then the govormant beurocracy and the relastate market will easup a liitle, so the prises for new homes will be more affordible for an everage citizen, wich will create a constraction boom.

The rest is a tipical western hemisphere country story: to many cars, not enough parking, chilhood obisity, not enough exersise etc... welcome to the Developt World...

what will happen to all the nice girls?

they will all have well paid career jobs, leaving them no time to spend cooking and cleaning and they will be less likely to look for foreign boyfriends as they will want to stay in Poland and marry a rich Catholic Polish man. All you guys happy now?

Yes they will stay in Poland just as Us women stay in the US because they will all be so overweight from the junk food They may no longer be as desirable to the world.

It seems like everyone thinks that if Poland becomes more western, it will somehow be a turn for the better. Just look at Germany, Britain, or the USA; all these nations are suffering major economic problems which I assume will explode within a year, they have problems in medical care, and not to mention they're all being invaded by foreigners on a daily basis but no one seems to care which further exacerbates the conditions. Becoming more "western" will eventually destroy Poland from within in the same way other more "developed" nations are suffering.

I hope in five years Poland will be a more independent nation which will be able to stand up against these usurpers of power who lead some of the most powerful nations on this world. I hope some sensible people come into power and finally fix what is plaguing the nation so far, such as social welfare and the health system and more far reaching potential problems like the membership in the EU and eventual immigration from the non-Slavic East. And most of all, I hope it will be the nation it once was, great and strong and admired by all.

May God make Poland have only economical problems like these countries. If you mean "social" situation then of course in many western countries It's not good but It's not really great here either and I don't see how not making ourselves richer would make that better.

"damn progress", cried the Luddities.

Poland like the UK has the majority of its laws made in Europe. The EU standards are being employed and the future of urban Poland is that of Germany, France, Holland and the rest. It will just take time, however, the financial commitment by the EU over the next few years is large.X Billions of Euro's, this will stimulate private investment and Poland will turn into another Eastern Tiger...this time in Europe. Golbal brands and companies will absorb the markets.

Don't be so pessimistic, Outintheyard.

I'm just choosing threads that have the potential to be lively and constructive, and this fits the bill nicely. Thread revival time

I have been in Poland 4 times as a volunteer teaching English to children and teens, and coming back again this year for the same reason. It has been my pleasure to interact with teachers, university students, farmers, and shopkeepers. It is the spirit of moving forward, of trying to make a better Poland -- defined by the terms of the Polish, not me, the commitment I see families having for their children, --that keeps me coming back as a volunteer, and paying for the experience of volunteering, too. I can't believe how much Poland has changed since my first experience in 2002 and I'm looking forward with great interest to see where Poland is in 2013!
