Does Poland count in Europe or is it ignored?

No really, Ashkenazi Jews are more interested in status than us.

Not true. I hate status. I was told that I have none.

We are told many things. How many from them are true?
Ma nishma?

There are various groups of people in Europe for whom Poland does count.
One of them are hunters.
I don`t support hunting, I think hunters are murderous butchers, sickly fascinated with firearms.
The following post is of informative nature, without intention of popularising anything.

Poland is a good destination for hunting trips. We still have a lot of forests and game in it compared to Western Europe.

See the animals that can be hunted in Poland:

Real rarities, not only in Europe, are European bison hunts:

The largest concentration of bison is found in the Bialowieza National Park in Poland. These animals, known as zubr in Polish, have their welfare monitored by the Polish organisation known as 'Operation Zubr'. Poland Hunting is able to offer a very rare opportunity for the trophy sportsman to take one of these special animals. We have a small allocation of bulls and cows which can be taken as a result of herd management. This is a unique opportunity.

Do you know many hunters that fit your description, Pawian?

Men in my family were hunters for many generations and I used to go hunting
with my father just like he used to hunt with his. I wouldn't describe any of us
as a "murderous butcher, sickly fascinated with firearms" (however, the skill
in using firearms proved to be very useful on too many occasions in Poland's
and our family's history).

It's sad that you consider Stefan Batory, Henryk Sienkiewicz, Józef Piłsudski
and countless other Polish artists, military leaders and politicians to be
"murderous butchers, sickly fascinated with firearms".

They should go out and shoot each other for the benefit of nature and our society instead of murdering rare species of animals.

To be frank, not too many. I know one dentist whose daughter I used to teach English. He is a big burly guy with a harsh voice and a face of Frankenstein`s monster. Yuk!

You told me your story, I`ll tell you mine. In 1996 I went on holiday to the lakes with my girlfriend, today my wife. I had borrowed a fishing license and a rod from my sister`s boyfriend. Camping at the lake, I went fishing one early morning. After an hour or two I caught a fish. I pulled it off water. When I saw it springing on the planks of the fishing bridge, I decided to let it go. What is more, I decided to give up fishing completely and never kill a wild animal for my personal pleasure.

People who kill for pleasure are sick.

It's sad that you consider Stefan Batory, Henryk Sienkiewicz, Józef Piłsudski

I don`t care about surnames. Every hunter who enjoys killing is sick in his head to me.

Poland in foreign eyes

Pope John Paul II, Lech Walesa and Nicolas Copernicus - these are the three Poles who are mentioned most frequently in history textbooks in various countries. According to a report on Polish communities abroad, compiled by the Polish Foreign Ministry, in most countries the problems of Poland are taken up in the context of the outbreak of World War Two, the Holocaust and the collapse of communism. Generally speaking, Poland is given marginal treatment in both history and geography texbooks. France is singled out in the report as a country where the presentation of Poland is negligent and outdated.

Unfortunately, Poland doesn't count.
In theory Poland is free to veto against more immigrants to protect Polish culture and society. In reality Poland will be punished by the rest of the EU (thanks to Britain, France, Germany and Spain) if doing so.
