Why was he voted in then, Ignac?

Very simple. He was the lesser of both evils. The Republican party screwed up royally by allowing McCain to represent the Republican party.It will take a miracle for the Republican to get out of this mess.

No potential for a woman to lead the country?

She's a grubby little gold digger.

Miss Deal Cutter

And how many politicians can you name that never "bent" their principles for one reason or another? I believe 99.9999% of them would.

Heaven forbid. She is the rotten banana in the bunch. Even worse than her husband. They both are power mad.

I agree with Shawn.Was there ever an honest politician? From any country.

If it was left to me to pick a Leader.. I would have no choice.. They are all crooks. Out to get whatever they can steal.. We the little guy's pay the price.

I don't understand Why Polish are living in Poland beside other EU. Poland has nothing except girl and old man.

The reason why a person would leave the US to live in Poland, is quality of life, yes pretty simply and straight forth answer.

Americans are still to experice a second major shock in that the new popular president will not be able to do much to save the US economy, How it must be insulting and a joke to the current administration to hear of some young jerk telling them to move over and telling them I will fix the world.

It must be one of the few countries in the world were ex criminals reaffend again to have the security of a roof over their heads.

The quality of life in Poland is more important than a false American dream.

Europe is the future, America is on its way out.

- It's a good question, provided it's ironic. To me, any Polish person who has any self-preservation instinct should not go to North America, and those Poles who already live there should leave immediately. I wouldn't go to Germany for the life of me either. The reason for my attitude is the horrific Polonophobia raging in those places. The evidence of it is, for example, the treatment given to the Poles by North American customs creatures. As for the German attitude, a good sample of it can be found even in this forum; I mean here the posts by a creep calling himself Buttburst Boy, or something like that. In fact, due to the activities of American and other media psychopaths the hate against the Poles is a global phenomenon, but it appears to be particularly virulent in the aforementioned places.

And why do you think that is? I'm sorry, but being of Polish decent, I, from personal experience in Germany and the US, just cannot agree with what you said. True, there are idiots everywhere you go, but Polish-Americans are proud of their heritage and are respected by their, say, German-American neighbors. There are no animosities! And a single user here isn't sufficient proof of modern day anti-Polish sentiments in Germany, that user is not pars pro toto!

you may want to put your crack pipe down as there is no polophonobia here in america. not sure where you getting this.. alcohol induced dreams?

it's still not attractive to move to PL as it is living in usa. that's how i feel about it anyway.

And a single user here isn't sufficient proof of modern day anti-Polish sentiments in Germany

bratboy isn't bad at all. i bet he just put puzzler's argumentative skills to shame. lol

Not on a big scale, no. However, Clint Eastwood played a Polish guy in his latest film. He was called a 'dumb Polak' and 'hard-nosed Polak'. There is some polonophobia, just not that much.

There really isn't any polophonobia. The phobias that exist in other places don't exist here, not like they do elsewhere. Life is not perfect and there are plenty of bad moods but not any genuine phobias.

There are a lot of crack pipes tho.

1) There are Palm trees in Wasaw - really!
2) The USA is a great place to make money, if you want to spend 20 years in a cube working nights and weekends.

If you want to start your own business Poland has lower start up costs because of the pln and labor. But if capital is not a problem people spend more in the usa, therefore, you can make more revenue (not always profit).

Over all USA is richer but I am An American living in Poland and I prefer Poland. But both are nice.

Yes, and the character he plays when called those names is a bit of a kunntt, no?

Apt, really

Hmm, I just fail to see a mass exodus of Americans fleeing to Poland. What I do see are a lot of Poles trying to come to America. I wonder why?

If you are a worker and want to work in a cube you will do better in the USA for now. But if you are a business owner better in Poland or a have imagination Poland is better. Many Americans and Brits are in Poland. Very interesting place.

But most Americans can not live/work in Poland. Do you not know this? You can only visit. And they do not just hand out visa at the boarder because you have a US passport. Also Americans like walmart and English too much to take a risk and try something new.

I am American and love America but its true, most Americans prefer to work in a cube instead of trying to do something different.

I'd like to leave Poland for US (for few years if not forever) mostly to continue education. Who writes the gratest textbooks, who's the leader in science if not the Americans?

I'm really tired with today's Poland. Of course I'm proud of the heritage and tradition but the goddamned post-communist soviet spirit mixed with eradicated, uniform UE mass create a monster together...

I'll quote one polish writer and journalist Ziemkiewicz: "Life in Poland remains swimming in pudding - it's possible but every move takes two times more energy".

This is my first post on this forum. Greeting for all and excuse me my english ;)

Germans.

With that kind of approach I strongly doubt that you'd feel comfortable in the US. Considering that I lived in the most educated city in the US I anyway felt how uneducated they were comparing to... well... Russians (not that I'm hooray-patriot but I can't compare to any other nation).

"Life in Poland remains swimming in pudding - it's possible but every move takes two times more energy".

Nice words... but you never know how many moves you in fact need to feel comfortable, to feel that you live. Yes everybody in the US has a car (unlike to Russia), you can feed a couple Africaes with their thanksgiving leftovers but on the other hand you could find all these not challenging... artificial, unnatural.

Finally there're lots of pros and cons.Your right to choose... :)

I can't answer this question for I wouldn't leave Poland for the USA.
Not my cup of tea...
But I'm planning to leave Britain for Brazil.
Is it a good idea? We shall see...:) - (anything to defy general trends - only joking!)

Until recently it was the power of the mighty dollar, mostly, that drew Poles to America. Opportunity and pay were better in the U.S. and your money goes farther here.

I understand most goods cost 1/3 more in Poland than the U.S.

Btw, it is emigrating when you leave a place and immigrating when you arrive.
