News / Poles don't have a heart for math... says The New York Times [84]

Gee, I wonder why the New York Times didn't talk to these Polish students or their professors?

Truth and reality has never been part of the agenda. Not like they don't ever report it, they do, but they'll bury it in section B somewhere since most people only read the headlines.

NYT, ABC, a number of companies, they prefer employees of certain races or mixed-genders. I have been told so directly by people that work for them. Matter of fact, concerning ABC, I was told that right within their offices when I applied for a job there after college.

it does amaze me though, that the editors at the NYT even allowed the article. I would have expected that even they would know that math is a function of the brain not the heart.

just goes to show ya I guess, what sitting on your brain can accomplish.

oh, be fair, he's talking about 70s.

Talking 70's to excuse today's behavior doesn't really work for me. the pope is looking more like Lot today than Jesus, if you ask me. Maybe in a few years he'll look like Lot's wife heh.

Had people known the extent of this 'normalcy' they probably would have spoken out a lot sooner.

Now that you are aware that this is normal, will you be sending your kids to a Catholic school?

"I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ".

So go become a Hindu like Ghandi was and see if you find paradise. Start with being an untouchable.

but back to the church, this is an eye opener:

Love / Good looking Polish women with ugly men [416]

Jesus loves you....even if you are ugly....

Might love you more if you are ugly too. He loves his work too, takes on many hard cases.

It's amazing how this gym sub culture has taken off in this country, i know largely it's due to people being fatter than ever, but it's not just that people that are thin wanna get toned or muscular. And you're right many women in their 40's and 50's look much younger from the rest.

I used to go to the gym. Now I just do chores.

I guess I thought maybe I could meet a like minded male over there but what I found was .. fat people trying to lose weight and elderly people trying to get their hearts back in shape after years and years of sitting.

I've dated 2 body builders over the years. One was even Mr. Sarasota for a while (lived in florida way back), local body building beauty champ. those 2 guys convinced me that body builders do what they do because they are otherwise extremely insecure. Extremely insecure. They liked to stand in front of the mirror and admire their pecs all day when really what I needed was friendly chat and a hand in the garden.

you know what though, since we're on the subject of good looks and health, sort of, this is a good place to bury some info.. here's a couple tidbits from years gone by in my life.. you might disagree, but this my experience, first hand.

twice in my life I've had 2 life-threatening experiences with doctors.. one a jewish OB Gyn in New York City when I was 19 years old, the other a jewish dentist in the south east when I was 45.. the OB Gyn used dirty equipment and I got very very sick ( I did mention the blood in the tube he used to him later, of course he denied it).. as part of his thing to heal me, after he learned who I was and what i was doing in New York (he would have gotten screwed had I died, it would have made all the newspapers, believe me and he would have looked like an ass, maybe gotten arrested).. he then put me on antibiotics (18 months I think I followed his advice in stupidity).. I wasn't getting much better.. he kept saying i had some sort of non-specific female infection down there.. and I didn't learn till several years later he had phoned my parents and told them he suspected I was a prostitute (kid you not) so my parents were believing I was deathly ill from selling sex (all lies, I was a college student with a couple boyfriends and I had gotten pregnant and wanted to terminate the pregnancy).. anyway, after 18 months of this dragging on and costing me every cent i had at the time, I went to a free sex clinic in the city, full of homos, and got a free exam. That doctor took one look, said, quote, 'You've got a yeast infection, my dear', gave me some of those things you insert for that, and I was cured in 3 days. Had I not been so young and so stupid I would have sued his behind off. But after several years, too late..

Then at age 45, I made the mistake of visiting a jewish dentist, he just happened to be nearby, there is no other reason I chose him, didn't even know he was jewish at first just like the first doctor.. I had a toothache, that's it. he said I needed a root canal, on a different tooth than the one that was bothering me.. he talked me into it, I was sooo stupid.. cost a bundle too.. (I had to have that tooth he worked on pulled 2 months later, it had never once bothered me before he touched it).. but anyway in the process I say to him directly, "I do NOT want any mercury amalgam put into my mouth". I must have said that to him 5 or 6 times. He says ok, then does his thing and LOADS that previously just dandy tooth with.. mercury amalgam ( another dentist later x-rayed it and verified that for sure before I had it out and when it was pulled, of course, there it was). His work hurt like heck and again, since I was already a toxic waste dump still cleaning myself up from the painting biz, yes, i got really sick. Couldn't get out of bed, my arms got very numb, it hurt to walk.. and the day before I visited that dentist for that procedure I was swimming laps at the pool and riding my bike every day. That's is how sick he made me virtually overnight.

Luckily, I found an alternative med doctor in a nearby city, an old German guy, who helped me get better, he had a lot to do with my good health today. concerning the dentist, I wrote letter after letter to the American Dental Association, at the good doctor's advice, who instead of coming to my aid, defended the dentist saying that the procedures he followed were standard and they couldn't help, sorry. I definitely still want to sue him and may pursue that one again yet the guy was such a moron. and it cost me a small fortune getting well again because of the idiot.

But you see, my gut feeling is.. it's more than just bad medicine. I was a pretty young girl with a Polish last name in New York, and then later, I was very good looking, strong Polish woman in that dentist's chair. And both of those doctors were Jewish. I sincerely believe there was more going on in both of those situations than anyone wants to admit.

pollacks, beware of jewish doctors. I have been to other doctors in my lifetime without a hitch of course, but the only 2 jewish doctors I ever visited, both almost killed me.

Take it for what it's worth.

Love / Good looking Polish women with ugly men [416]

actually I turned 50 this year.

But, much to the disdain of so many fat women (or men) who don't take care of themselves.. .. quite a few of those apparently 35 year old pretty women you see walking down the street are also 50 too.

There are people who groom themselves before walking out the door (and don't over eat and drink themselves to sleep every night) and there are people who don't, it's probably that simple.

if you stay away from drugs and drinking, you'll probably have the same experience in life that I've had so far. drugs, prescription drugs, I've seen them age a person 10-20 years within a short span of time. I've also had a few friends die that way by now.

but again I'll reiterate, I give the credit to Jesus, it's because of him I don't drink much anymore (a little bit of beer now and then is actually very good for your kidneys). I spent 11 years without touching a drop of alcohol, and I have never done drugs.

I can't.. I showed you my work.. if I do drugs or drink, my work suffers greatly.. your head gets foggy and your hands shake. I also like my work a lot better than drugs or drinking.

News / A devestating verdict on the Polish church [278]

notice that Noah got drunk and was molested by his son Ham after the flood,

First of all, Noah was not molested by Ham.

Torah Genesis 9:22

Ham the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness and told his two brothers outside.


Seeing and molesting are 2 very different things. Yet, Ham was punished simply for seeing, and telling his brothers.. something for y'all to mull over..

I reserve opinion on Lot's righteousness. There's no mention of Lot being truly righteous in the Torah, or OT. Yet there's no mention of him being truly unrighteous either. It would seem that Lot's big sin here is not so much the sin he committed, but the sin he permitted by those around him. His heart was vexed we're told, but we're never told he said a word about it, except to offer up his daughters to it, in his time of need, which obviously had it's consequences.

just my 2 cents on that. But either way, Abraham and Sarah were brother and sister too, so the incest things in that culture remain. I don't see how a person can condemn Lot and his daughters and then not condemn Abraham and Sarah for virtually the same thing. What we are left with, is a people who on both sides of their cousin fences, accept incest as a way of life.

Personally, I don't see the Torah, or OT if you wish, as ever upholding the ancestors of the jews, moabs, whomever, as a righteous people. rather, I see it as the written testimony and history of their error after seeking God, and presenting themselves to him as righteous when time and again, He said, no, you are not. It tells us more about how not act, not vice versa, using the jewish people as it's example.

that's what I see, sorry..

USA, Canada / Which countries are Americans usually traveling to? [114]

Help for Africa, Haiti and all kinds of others but where's the help for our people?

we need to help ourselves now, just like the bankers.

I was thinking.. if Goldman-Sachs can get all that bailout money after it's deriviatives heist, fanny mae, whoever was doing all that whatever.. bank of america whoever.. and no one but no one gets prosecuted...

well shucks, shouldn't my turn be next? bank robbery and lots of other white collar crime is obviously no longer illegal. I'm not sure when the law was changed but it has changed, it's there for all to see, right?' You can now rob banks based on the precedents set by our leaders in government.

go for it, everyone, get your share before they beat you to it.

we need a run on the banks day, we all run to the banks with little notes that say, 'hand me all your money'. we all do this on on pre-set day. There is only one rule, do not use a gun, because that could cause a life threatening injury. pretend to carry a gun, even point it at people's heads if you like. if anyone makes any trouble just tell them you work for government. You do work for the government as a taxpayer so that is not a lie or even a little white lie.

If you dress in a real nice suit or skirt and suit jacket, you will pull this off without a hitch.

power to the people.

Genesis 1:28

And God blessed them; and God said unto them, be fruitful and multiply...


ok, now.. this is a big big problem I have with the catholic church.

God said unto them, be fruitful and multiply!

Nuns are outside of that blessing guys.. think about it.. one of God's very very first commandments, if not the very first and there goes the catholic church screwing things up.

no pun intended.

Not at all! He was still considered a "righteous man" (Gen 19:33) even though before he offered his own daughters to violent sex assaulters and rapists in Sodom.

Been a couple years since I read Genesis.. but, and correct me if I am wrong, didn;t Abraham say finally.. if there is one righteous man.. and The Lord said no, but go get your cousin Lot out of sodom if you care..

something like that anyway.

Must be Lot and his daughters and the incest thing that gave the jews so many birth defects. not a joke, my family is not jewish but there must have been one somewhere in the past because my lil sister carries one of those jewish specific birth defects..

Most people are average looking and when they get to be middle aged they start going down hill if they don't go to cosmetic surgeons. All natural beauties are under the age of forty.

except me.

25 year old men still try to pick me up. I get such a chuckle out of it, they must be really hard up.

but yeah, and it's men too.. after so many years of drinking and who knows what.. raising kids takes a lot out of you for sure but also makes you a lot smarter... earns you patience..

I went skiing last week. One guy bought me beer at the bar all evening then hamburgers at a restaurant, then al;ong came another asking for my number..

it's alright if the dinner is good and beer is on tap. I do offer interesting conversation, no doubt.. and I am a superb slalom skier. But I do have to head home at 8pm golly gee.

This eternal life thing is very interesting.. I got saved at age 34 by Jesus and don't seem to have aged very much since then.

Thank you Jesus, he is my life.

Off-Topic / I thought my house had ghosts, but according to a paranormal psychic it is hovering demon [30]

Thank you very very much for your response. The praying I did in the bathroom may have prevented something worse from happening. I intend to do that and a lot more.

You're welcome.

It can take a few weeks sometimes longer for it to dissipate completely, just keep at it...

Church is good for the strength of fellowship (if you know of a good one) but Jesus is really all you need. This is his realm completely. He sets the captives free ;)

Sounds like you'll have quite a testimony when all is said and done.

Off-Topic / I thought my house had ghosts, but according to a paranormal psychic it is hovering demon [30]

well.. having actually been there and done that, a lot like you.. we had a new house and you could hear someone coming up the stairs at night.. even the very very strange sound of chains moving around in the attic.. twice, at night (I was about 7) I saw a hooded ghost thing, like it was wearing a dark brown monks robe, tie around the waist and all, but the face when it looked at me was pure darkness, no eyes, nothing..

I could go on because I had a few experiences later in life too, and also my daughter has had a few real whammies.. but anyway there is an answer it surely is not psychics. psychics might actually make your problem worse since they work with spirits.

try this, it is real simple. next time you sense something, whether you are sure or not, you say, out loud 'Help me Jesus". saying the lord's prayer out loud helps whole bunches too.

whether you believe in Jesus or not, it doesn't matter, just do that and they will leave immediately. ghosts and demons fear Jesus more than anything in this world. be careful, they can hurt you and make you sick too..

maybe it's a trial of faith for you, do that.. help me, Jesus.. and you will find soon even, you do believe in him. Lots of people get saved this way.

News / A devestating verdict on the Polish church [278]

Truth be told ender, I am a rock solid Christian who left the church in search of truth, not religion. The Lord is my life. I think the Catholic church has done quite a lot for the civilized world, and never forget the crusaders who held back the muslims for so very long, a thing people love to use as a way of making the church look bad.. but the church did what it had to do so it and it's people were not enslaved by muslims. I give the Catholics and their solidarity in these types of situations a heap load of credit. I also think the hard line the church often takes in matters of things like abortion and euthanasia are correct, for civilization to continue morality in life's most basic matters must be upheld. However, I strongly disagree with the'religion' of the church.. the pope is NOT God nor his only representative on this earth. They teach catechism and want to hide the bible away. 500 years ago the RCC would have burnt at the stake any person who owned a bible, that is the biggest mistake they ever made and it cost the church a lot, the reformation resulted from these erronoeus teachings of church first and Jesus second, not to mention the fact that these days they even prefer the virgin mother as savior to the lord jesus himself, a co-redemptor. It's bullcrap, they made a lot of stuff up out if thin air to profit and empower themselves.

My catholic family more or less disowned me for several years after I left the church, ender. but nonetheless, I am aware that there are many many fine people in the RCC and if I had to choose between a society of homosexuals and jews or the church and it's hardline minions, I would choose the church, simply on principle. I could survive among them, the others are more interested in perverting and demoralizing my children than helping them one little bit.

my grandfather was an orphan, raised by the Catholic church, I actually owe quite a bit to them. I am not angry at them, we simply disagree, politely, on the true path to salvation.

Remember not only was Christ the first Catholic He was also the first Socialist.

and that is why he said that we should not pay heed to doctrines of men and if a man wants to eat he should work, right?

I have seen them there as well. Your point is? Mine is it's not your business anymore.

I'd have to argue with you there.. and say.. it is actually everyone's business because the Catholic church is extremely influential, it affects the lives of catholics and non-catholics alike.

At any rate I never once made a derogatory statement concerning your priest, as my polish is not fluent enough to read the article. Like I said, a translate widgety at the news site would be a good idea. If he is being accused of being an anti-semite however, he's probably doing something right, since every non-jew and their mother is accused of being an anti-semite these days.

comfort.. ugly men stick closer to home. Life is a bit tougher for them and they and often have better personalities. though sometimes ugly is a personality disorder in itself, means they don't take care of themselves ( and likewise can't take care of anyone else). from my experience anyway.

gotta look on the inside, though. Sad to say, most of the really good looking men I 've known in my life, and a few have been true beauties, but they were w-h-o-r-e-s too, they get so many offers.. I have to admit, it's real difficult to trust a good looking man and I have often heard the same of myself, even when it wasn;'t true.

people don't trust you in relationships when you look too good. sad fact of life.

what makes you so sure she's of 100% Polish descent just because she lives in Poland?

If this board is any example of modern day Poland, a lot of people living in Poland today are not really Polish either. We left Poland 100 years ago, as it was being over run by Ukranians claiming to be Polish too.

It's just a matter of borders and piece of paper that says Polski or Polska these days. Rather meaningless.

That's nice, how you use it and how you view yourself, but the word you are using is a racial slur and offensive to those of us who are Polish. It's as bad as the n***** word. Doesn't matter how you use it, it's still a racial slur.

Life / Babcia or Busha - any social class difference? [350]

actually I use the word pollack quite lovingly, I am one.

I asked the question as kid and that is the answer I got. pretty funny, that 10-15 years later as a college student in New York City, one of my favorite places to eat was this little Ukranian restaurant in the east village called 'Odessa".

In that restaurant, the word "babcia' was heard often. You could just sit there eating and you would hear it 5 or 6 times in 30 minutes, really. I did ask the waitress what version of grandma that was and even she said it was ukrainian.

I am pretty sure Odessa still exists in the east village, on Ave A and 6th St. Go there yourself and ask the ukranians what they think if you don't believe me.
