News / PiS candidates are losing positions in EU Parliament [86]

they are forced to suck up to the American president to an unbelievable degree.

They are not forced to do any such a thing. They are just victims of the post-commie trauma and don't know any better. It is embarrassing and there some bad deals being made but still generally it all goes into the right directions, maybe. Could be better.

that will shift ots' attention more and more towards Asia and China?

They will need someone dependable to look out for their interest in this part of the world. Germany doesn't want to do it. There is a chance for Poland, that for a short term plan, a long term one includes a three seas potential for he economic growth.

Stop that Pawian..

Just ignore him. To take his yapping seriously well, Merkel took PO yapping for a reality see where it get her, lol. He is of the same ilk, waste of oxygen but if you need a butler or somesuch ....

Do you think a brotherhood with Hungary will help you then?

No but our own nuclear weapon will.

just pointing out the fact that you won't change a thing for the better if you leave the game.

Well, you are right but staying would have the same effect. In fact it would take Germany to inisaite any meagful changes as only that country has enough pull in the EU. At the very least it would have needed an active German support.

Howvere it seems that Germany is pretty much satfied with the way are at the moement. They even push for more of the same i.e. more functions of a state for the EU.

That is the crux of the matter. Putting cenatrl bank, common currency and so on before building nessery istitucion, laws and regulation for a single EU state wheater it be federal or anything else is errronus and is not going to work.

It like some 'elites' trying to inteduce a canteral EU state througt the back door and force it on the people by default.

It is not going to work. Not because I say so but for various practical reasons. There is an exmaple at hand how to build a country - the USA. It is enough to take a looksie at they approach in an attempt to make a country from different British ex-colonies. Some basic lessons to be had there. Nay, smartasses know better. Well they are not!

Why you think Poland will be better off that way is totally beyond me!

So far the EU proven to be a burden. Interfering into internal Polish affairs, supporting all that LGB....whatever revolution, that progressive nonsense too. Economically while taking idly about a common market and free this or that, French and Germans are fiercely defending their own - latest exmaple changing the law to stop Polish competitors (transport companies) defending their markets. Nobody was yelling about EU values and laws then, eh? Somehow the other way around is just fine and dandy.

I think there is an option for Poland. A realistic one and one that need to embraced. Well, there is still a large popular support for the EU in Poland and PiS is a pro-EU party too regardless what some nutters say. It is changing, hopefully it will change fast ...

So yes, I think Poland would be better off because EU doesn't go anywhere nice but to a tyrannical intuition ruled by force and coercion.

stop pouting in the corner and come join the fun...

It is not about pouting BB. I'm pointing out serious issues and flaws of the Eu, it doesn't help anyone if you downplay those issues or brush them aside. You won't convince any one that way. So I wonder why you doing it? Are you using this tactic in lieu of a straight answer?

No, it would be a bad day for all the smaller countries. Never again will they have so much say and sway.

Oh dear? What would they do?

Agreed!

You aware that all EU institutions are designed in favour of the smaller countries right?

If that is so it clearly doesn't work. Also common currency and a central bank without a one single state is asking for trouble. It is like putting carriage before horses.

trategic alternatives to the EU they mean either becoming a full time American stalking horse in Europe

There should be a long term plan and a short term plan. So yes you are right for the short term plan that American ally works. Poland as main receipt of American gas and a faithful member of NATO.

Long term includes building up economy of Poland and of the region between three of two seas. The USA would need some trusted ally here to look out for them in Europe. They will engage they main forces somewhere around China and ME.

at the same time they invest in Poland, build firms and bring jobs to polish workers..

Not so much.... as all the profits are being transferred out of the country.

Now that is just not true!

Is it not? How many sinecures for politicians with sizable money and not work has been created in the EU? That is clearly a bribe.

if you would use realistic stats and facts...

I don't make them up. Perception is important too. If everyone believes that he is the one that is being exploited including a citizen of the major economic beneficiary of the EU - a German citizen. If at the same time there is need to introduce real checks and balances i.e. change of the EU institutions.

then it create a certain friction which will be getting bigger and bigger with time. So either it will all fall apart or is going to hold together by force.

What about them? They will either come back or take a passport in the country of their residence. Beside traveling without visa wasn't an invention of the EU.

you will find many Germans who are convinced of the contrary.

Well.... some are never happy. Saying that I'm sure that there is an issue of wealth distribution in Germany that creates dissatisfaction.

I'm talking about German capital and German firms that made and are making a great gains and profits on the back of the Polish people (as well).

As for the money that Germany puts into EU. That mostly go into becuracracy and to bribe politicians (its called I believe salary). Those money entering Poland are rendered harmful by the conditions attached to it. I already talked about it.

Germans would wish for more german influence!

I can understand that. At the same time if we consider the way the EU's institutions are geared and its working it makes the EU project doomed.

That has alot to do with pride and psychology!

I'm talking about economy working hand in hand with politicians to secure more of the power. As it happens such a power is concentrated in Germany and to the lesser extend in France. If they exercise influence their power grands them in the EU they more oft than not do it on the expense of others. Highly sensitive to such exploitation are countries of the Eastern Europe for the obvious historical reasons. Which you as an Ossie do understand.

The EU's institutions and workings are geared that way to utilize influence of Germany over others EU nations. That is what I have problem with. Those institutions should be changed in such a way as to helping top crate a level playing field for all the members. To install few checks and balances to ensure that a one or two powers will not dominate it completely.

I doubt it will happened any time soon. Hence I'm all for Poland to leave from the EU. We have a strategic alternative that can be and should be used to build economical ties as well.

The problem is that PiS silly anti-European games make Poland the third class membe

No, that not even cut it close.

if you expect Poland

No, I expect Poland to have a proper Polish politic aimed at protecting Poland's interest. All I hear is PiS that PO this and some useless petty squabbles over nothing.

I would expect you to tell me what is that the current government is not doing and what is vital to the Polish national interest? Maybe something like - what is in Poland's national interest at the moment, what relations and what politics should be prioritized? What are the dangers and what advantages of such and such policy. How is PiS being charge doing in regard to those?

Not some BS about some obscure party member not getting a pointless sinecure in some powerless EU institution.

Why did you

Nither some personal attacks without any order, point or merit. Yet you're upset if I call you a Soviet. Well that what you are - mentally at least.

Poland but also reached European capitals. In result, Szydło was removed from her wanna be position like the flag. :)

If that is the truth that it means that either or both of those are true:
a. Poland is treated as subjected not full member/
b. PiS is not anti-European/

If you use my own words to you

I didn't use YOUR words. I asked you If you were a fool or a liar. You choose to answer in aw ay that make it obvious. In a way you choose that option. What to debate about? You choice?

not getting important positions in EU Parliament after recent elections and I did mean the EP only.

So what if you did? It doesn't matter and is not as if PO was sooo successful in that regard even thought they enjoyed a full support of Germany and were faithful lap dogs of the EU masters. You are just an as.hole who is trying to create a new reality just to get at the party you don't support. Poland and Polish and all the eastern Europe is treated in the EU as a second class members and that will not change even if some or other scumbag will act like a butler to them. That makes it even worse. Hey but you as a Soviet don't care about such detail eh?

Szydło removing the EU flag?

A Gesture to electorate meaning that in Poland Polish interest take precedence over Brussel's.

The whole Tusk re-election fiasco?

Making show of a fact that Poland don't support that prick and he is a German candidate. How any of those make PiS anti-European?

They're just nasty venal people, bullies who can dish it out but can't take it.

hmm have you ever hah a disagreement with a KOD member or a PO member about politics? I would say they are even more like that, PiS is an improvement, not a big one but still.

What is wrong with you? Why do you lie about PiS being anti-euroapen? You're either a fool or a shameless liar.

not getting important positions in EU Parliament after recent elections.

they are not important position in the EU Parliament as it is only a place without power or anything to say in the EU. Hence those 'important' positions are just hollow sinecures - that all. Also election means nothing as who take what is being decided behind the curtain talks.

Ingrate hypocrites! I

Boo hoo welcome into politicks dude. are u that naïve or that dumb? Ah, could you give us an example how exactly PiS spit in the EU's face, one or two would do,.

eally popular in the countryside and small towns, especially in Eastern Poland,

Still dividing voters onto better and worse groups. If they share your voting preference then they qualify into so called 'better' category ? Pretty primitive approach that. Fitting Soviets like you do the core.

Excellent candidate

Ditto, the EU needs more people like her in prominent positions.

Life / Why Polish singers are not popular abroad? [12]

why aren't there any Polish-based singers to make it big internationally?

hmm ...what do you mean internationally? Define it? Think it over will you?

For a couple of decades the international market has been dominated by the American pop and it entertainment industry, if you wanted to make it big you had to make it big in the USA. That trend is changing, maybe not so much in Europe but elsewhere.

I find you question to belong the same category (weird and useless) as why there is no Polish actors in the Hollywood. Poland ain't America dude, duh!

A More serious answer so called language barrier.

By the way. Never heard about them. You should reconsider your approach as you basic assumptions are false.

It is for a nation to decide.

What nation? You mean a state or more precise a government. Fair enough. So far the uk hold a poor record in that area. Do you think that some off cuff remarks of the BS boy gonna change it? Wake up and smell the coffee.

The only realistic solution is my approach no governmental/public founding for translator and what have you, for people living in the uk.

A Problem with people is a fact that they prefer to listen to what they like to hear rather than think about a realistic solution to a problem. Latter they blame it all on the politicians. Boris is full of S. You're his cheerleader. lol

Besides tendency to force everything on people by some grovemnat is just totalitarian.

Perhaps. On the other hand maybe you just don't understand progressive ideology and just go with the flow. In that case there ought to be some inconsistency in your views.

Off-Topic / Are the English going to lose Great Britain ? [252]

If you choose to live and work in a foreign country, your first obligation to that country is to integrate.

Not really, unless you apply for a passport of said country. Then it is a given that your knowledge of that country language is on a level that enables you to communicate. Otherwise there is no passport.

Came in legally and obey the laws is a first obligation.

The first thing you can do to achieve that aim is to learn the language.

Says who? this is a kind of totalitarian approach I dislike. As I said it is for an individual to decide. Said country doesn't have to make it easy on him/her if they decide not to learn a language of a country. If they can get by just fine without it - who cares?

He is right and it is a huge problem in The UK.

He is not right IF that the way he puts it. He shouldn't make their choices for them. Period.

And they get translators, paid for by the state, for anything important.

That is wrong. He should haver said that the state will not be financing those anymore. Fair enough.

Making other people do something by a degree is a fascist totalitarian approach and is bad. Can you spot the difference?

That is the patter I'm talking about. Why is that somewhat worse?

, Boris is right on the money

No he is not. No if he puts it like that.

It is up to an immigrant to learn the language of a country he emigrates to. If he can get away without learning it at all - good for him/her. If faces many difficulties without the local lingo it is his/her problem.

I hate this totalitarian, singular, uniform un-American approach. He should learn it. Make him or kick him out. WTF?

That is wrong.

On the other hand there should not be any help for those who do not speak the local language. No translator, no info, no nothing that would be paid by the taxpayer, government agencies or what not. IF a private employer whishes to employ foreign people with no language and privies them with translator or whenever needed for them to work on his budged - fair enough.

Yet, no public, government run institution should be burdened with providing help for those who cannot communicate in the local lingo.

This English hysteria is just sad. What next the language police? Maybe change the name of the country united fascist kingdom?

I mean that progressive leftist agenda is bad enough but some of those opposing it are just not conservative or the right but some self- righteous idiots and xenophobic losers. They are minority but they are the worst because thanks to them all the rest i.e. reasonable people are tarred with the same brush.
