My God, I should be studying right now but few things need to be cleared here:
picking out the Jews 'as recomended by 'Radio Maryja'
WTF??? Could you back up that statement because it's the first time I hear about it.
The extreamists are running the country.
LPR could be considered extremist, but PIS? I don't think so.
a lot happen in that time I think you should come back here to see how things are going and bealive me you much better off in canada
Yes, a lot of things did change. For example I remember few years ago having a job was basically a privilege. Do you want to know the secret behind the oh so famous "polish working ethic"? Well before 2004 I always heard from my employer "If you don't like it than leave! There are 10 people standing outside the building and waiting for your job!". It was a pretty good motivation to work extra hours for free and do things that werent in my . But now due to a work force shortage the situation really did improve. Slowly we can feel the wages rising even here in the province. I just changed my job and I'm happy with my income, something that wasnt that certain few years ago.
Zion has a valid point, I think. The Government could and should be doing more to encourage Poles to form their own businesses.
I don't think that they know exactly how to do that.
What is your suggestion to try and keep Poles in Poland? I try to tell my GF and she says theres nothing for here there and the employers don't pay well. What would make PL more attractive to it's youth do you think? .
This phenomenon is strongly connected with our communist’s heritage. You see during the communist times the reality here was rather dull. Everything was gray, there were times where the only products stocked in shops where mustard and vinegar, long ques, government invigilation, no perspectives what so ever… From time to time we could see some western/American films in TV and everybody was dreaming about living the life of westerners. Times have changed, CCCP broke down but people still are fascinated with the west. You know, If someone would lock you in your house and force you to stay you would hate that place at some point. Add to that the power of TV with the power of gossip and you will get the answer. I think that a lot of people don’t know what they have until they loose it.
And dare I say it (please don't kill me) religion.
Nobody will kill you for that Kruk. I think that you are exaggerating here but I would definitely like to hear your point of view.
