News / Giant Jesus Rising in Świebodzin ( Tallest in world ) [323]

I think i've made about 20 negative giant Jesus references since the completion of the statue.

I think you gonna get the finger from JC upon your arrival in heavens...but no need to worry, you'll have a plenty of company, including mine.

News / Poles are getting rich... [63]

That's how it was in 1950's, 60' and early 1970'. America seemed to have been on top then. Those low prices are not working too well for Americans. Wages stagnated since 1970's and the middle class has been decimated.

The prices are still working well now, I just don't know for how long. The middle class was just fine until a couple of years ago. There were a few bumps in the past, but short - lived.

I'd say what big corporations have been doing for the last 100+ years doing is in fact Wild West.

It is the big corporations and big industries which employ people and pay good salaries. No mom's and pop's shop can ever accomplish that.

Gotta keep people in check on their knees and praying or also...no heaven for you..too bad.

- trim import from China and shift towards production at home

yeah, everybody wants that but they don't realze that the hammer at Sears would cost them $14.99 instead of $1.99...

- refuse to buy anything from China until they stop keeping their currency artificially low

risk to get mad and call all the loans back or allow them all to move in instead? lol.

- abolish the Federal Reserve (hanging its senior administrators on lamp posts would be nice...)

Wild West style solution, huh? We would need to order some extra rope from China, y'know.

Buy Ford.

True. That 'Fix or repair daily" cars went a long way.

knucklehead for a President

Unfortunately the one before and now fit into the category and it is what it is but I believe that we'll survive. It is just a hard lesson to learn to many people and totally not necessary.

Poles in Poland grabbed their opportunities and some got rich... many people here are getting rich as we speak too. Crisis or not there is always opportunity for many.

Due to multiple mergers, some banks had difficulties to locate original mortgage documentation...it created a mess for potential buyers.

Yup. There sure are secure jobs :)

you're not in banking or finance. Are you? :)

well, yes - unemployment when it comes to people out of work already, but the ones who still work and don't know how soon they are going to join the 'crowd'.

Yeah, the infrastructure projects are fine although a hassle to drive around! But, you see even though the interest rates are low people are losing homes and a very few are buying! Why? Job insecurity. It is a great time for people who have a few dollars or a secure job (is there such thing now?).

History / Are Poles happy with the current Polish borders? [134]

Polish borders are unattractive and boring

oh, come on..the mountains, the sea, the western rich soil, the eastern ...never mind..
The statue of Jesus everywhere would be just an icing on the cake! :)
I just don't understand why Jesus the King is going alone without Mary the Queen of Poland.
Argh, I'm so sick of the religious icons!

we need Government spending to keep people in their homes

it's not working. Google foreclosed homes in your town. I did.
Anyway, taking jobs abroad, allowing illegal immigrant work for less lowers the amount of jobs available and the pay for everybody, thus lowers the standard of living.There is nothing more controlling than the fear of losing a job.

You guys aren't even half as social as Holland is, not even if Obama totally had his way

and it will not happen, hopefully. I don't know about Holland being communist, but any country which expects the government to take care of its people and control them is getting Marxist.

So does Marxism. Marxism is never the answer.

So why is it accepted in America? When will people realize that we are half way there?

Genealogy / Nowa Huta birth records around 1920 [3]

Nowa Huta

If you mean Nowa Huta town next to Krakow, it did not exist in 1920. The town started to be built in 1949. I'd say you may start from contacting the city records in Kraków.

News / Do Poles take Kaczynski seriously!? [199]

reveal that he is gay.

oh, no not that! poor p***y cat...
I don't think he is gay, he is just to short to find a woman dwarf and too weird. LK's wife was a few years older and well..not too attractive, but i understand she was a wonderful woman.

Anyway, we should not judge people by their looks alone but whatever comes out of their mouth and JK's mouth sucks.

News / Do Poles take Kaczynski seriously!? [199]

you'd probable see an even more extreme version of Kaczynski...possibly even with a funny mustache..

Yeah, I hear of him as the new Hitler? Is that what you mean? Being conservative is fine, it is about preserving the past values, the legacy of your parents and maybe even grandparents.

I don't think JK goes that far but I'm no expert after watching BBC news or polish 'wiadomosci' over the Internet couple of times a month. However, after hearing and reading and what I know - he's gotta go. There is a limit.

a population which feels that it has been wronged by the international community not 15 years ago

well, that notion gotta go too. Enough time had passed.

..so it happened before, in Austria, hmmm. I don't know about it. I guess there is more than political agenda and marital status connection. Sometimes it does not matter even in a conservative environment. Good.

So, are we are still in a world that a single man or a woman can not succeed because they do not have a significant other? I don't think you really meant that. If it was so, all 'mohair berets' would not support PiS and JK - but they do! What gives then? They seem to forgive JK for not having a wife and kids and living with a cat instead... They still follow him! What is the 'magic' of JK?

News / The legalization of Ukrainian immigrants in Poland [14]

Give back our land first !

Then we would need to give back our western Poland to Germans..right? The borders got shifted by the big three honchos after the second world war and that's a given.

I don't think that illegal immigrants should be granted citizenship, on the other hand maybe they want permits for work - well

Yeah, that's how America feels about Mexicans.

Legalize them all, just think how cheap they'll be able to do those jobs the lazy Poles wont do? :D

Let them clean the toilets! :)

unfortunately there are many gangs of criminals in the Ukraine that do not have the same values as we do.

lol. So what are the polish gang values? Do tell. Please.

News / Do Poles take Kaczynski seriously!? [199]

He appears to be in simple denial about what's happened - he's lost power, he has no twin to manipulate and his party isn't strong enough to win.[/

I feel bad for him that he lost his brother, he manipulated the polish government and governed Poland in the background through Lech - a wishy-washy man. A huge blow to his ego now because nobody cares about him. He, himself and PiS are to weak to govern again. A total loss of power. It's gotta drive him coo coo as he appears to be.

Apropos, dropping all the guys in fancy ivory "dresses" and pink berets behind him when he speaks maybe would help.

Food / Any królik (rabbit) fanciers on PF? [76]

I had a rabbit dinner before and I liked it. It was some kind of stew with heavy cream gravy over mashed potatoes. German restaurants have it on the menu often but not so much in polish restaurants. You can buy it at some delis during the holidays.

Yeah, poor rural folk are pretty much the only ones who raise/ hunt to eat bunnies here. Same for other small game like squirrels, possum...

Welcome to Alabama!

Poland have squirrels?

Yes, very pretty red ones, unlike the mostly grey "tree rats" we have here :)

The idea of the huge statue is embarrassing. Why is my old country going so backward? When will the people see the light that the church want to put them back in the middle ages? You know..serfs to the church... Please wake up! You did not get yourself free form communism only to get entangled in the rosary chains. Down with TRWAM.

Food / Cornish game hens in Poland? [13]

Maybe they are called different in Ireland. Look for really tiny small chickens in the market.

I bet you're just as fat as most Americans.

No need to be snippy. The birds are really small and bony. It's about the taste. You can't get really stuffed with one. A 'fat' American would need at least five of them to be satisfied.

USA, Canada / Do Polish guys like American girls? [103]

Americans for the most part are shallow and spoiled.

Oh, puhleeze... Don't rely on stereotypical generalities. In the contrary, many Americans are just the opposite, neither spoiled or shallow. The men who look outside are just pussies looking for meek women they can dominate. At the end, they are taken and let loose with only their socks on.

Some Poles are getting rich, most stay in the moderate or low income bracket. My friend went to Poland after 18 years and found her friends living in the same, small, dingy apartments...

Life / POLISH MYTHS - let's debunk or prove them! [140]

Polish women have frown lines going vertical on the forehead, just above the nose. Polish men have mimic lines going horizontal across the forehead.

This is because women scoldingly accuse and men feign ignorance and innocence.

lol. Stop it people! I'm laughing so hard I'm getting crows feet (kurze łapki in polish) around my eyes!

The meat is very tasty, much better than a chicken. You can roast them with stuffing too.There is a lot of bone picking involved and your fingers are the best utensils but it is well worthed and finger licking good!
