Life / Everything this guy says I feel about Poland [69]

that guy is an idiot.
"ive done acid , i've done a lot of halucinegens" yes those drugs can make one very anti social and anxious.
"my culture is drum and base and jungle, but my culture is dying young kids are not into it" It's now called Dubstep idiod. This guy needs to stop over analysing, join a gym or start a hobby. go to some meetup groups and stop navel gazing and poor me.

History / Your favourite Polish Patriotic films [49]

Ryszard Bugajski died on the 7th of June. For me he was second to Wajda as a director in being able to illustrate the history of our nation .Every film he made was important to polish culture.

Przesłuhanie/Interogation was a film about UB imprisoning and torturing an actress in stalinist poland. It was banned and ordered destroyed in 1982 and the director managed to make a vhs copy which was then shown in the solidarity community. In 89 the film could finally be screened legaly and won awards at Cannes.

General Nil told the story of how the communists chased down and executed the General in post war poland
Układ zamknięty/The Closed Circuit. was set in poland in the late 1990s, based on a true story it demonstrated how post communist apparatchiks stole the wealth of businesses through brutal methods. Denied funding during PO's reign, the director sought funding from business organisations who understood the pathology of Poland in 2013.

I have not seen Zaćma/Blindess yet but it is about but it about life of a stalinist criminal in poland meeting the cardinal.

Below are the links to his films (adblocker recomended of course)

You should not have the vote. You have never lived here

Yes i have

Polonia is scum.

You should hide your anti polish bigotry a bit better; No wonder your business is failing in Poland

Yet you can't actually point at very much that they've done well... what are their successes? Can you list a few of their accomplishments?

- investment in the health system has increased by 28 billion zloty compared to 2015. In comparioson to the doom and gloom by the pom-pats.
- the economy is booming.
- massive investments in public transport and infrastructure
- cutting of red tape for small business
- reducing tax fraud pepetuated by PO and their mates
- proposed no income tax for under 26s

But most importantly we are not getting any more afera tasmowa, paliwowa, vat etc, the post communist gangster clique is out of power, no more strange suicides of PM chief of staff, ex generals and smolensk navigators. The polish people are not being robbed anymore they are getting more social spending instead. No more doing deals with russia where we pay them more for gas then any other country in the europe. No more sneering at half of the polish population. Basically the country is not being fkd over, of course the bottom feeder pom-pats who are faliures in their own country, are so lost in their anti polish bigotry and hatred they fail to realise this.

They should wear nit uniforms.

No. School uniforms are an anglo saxon pathology. students should have individual freedom. Of course problems will arise between socioeconomic classes. rich girls wearing stuff etc, but that is the price we have to pay.

Even respected media need to use catchy titles to attract readers to rather boring topics. People who are not aware of such tricks are debils

When the whole private media was against PiS, when the oppposition thought they would win and the polls had the result within 2 percent, what was the result? A eight percent difference between one party and the whole of hte opposition. yes it is a smashing.

He's so proud about having a university education yet the scot ended up being a teachers assistant in Poland. LOL. FYI my whole family is university educated and we support PiS. As is most of Polonia who have global perspectives an when they visit Poland regularly they knew that the PO pathology needed to be erased.

it's worth pointing out that the election results are nothing like "smashing" at all. Such words belong to PiS supporters living in a fantasy land

Opposition gets smashed was the headline in Politico.eu you clown. A respected european publication that has a a general pro brussels, anti PiS/populist line.

We're going off topic. In summary.
PiS smashed the oppositions in the PE elections and will win the Parlamentary elections
Reforms will continue, Social spending will increase and Poles are supporting this more and more.
The Koalicja is falling apart, expect more fractures. PO has no policies, no vision and the swinging voters (the ones who matter) do not trust it

Happy days for Polish people. bad news for pom marxist and yank republican expats :)

Your only arguument against air accident investigator Frank Taylor, who agreed with the Smolensk explosion theory was that he was a 'troublemaker' some arguement! He has direct experience dealing with exploded airliners. The miller commision was politicaly motivated as many of the strange events that occured prove. (the guy who was fired for asking the americans for help etc) so pot calling kettle black

how long have we been waiting for the "truth" about Smoleńsk? Nearly 4 years?

The truth about the assasination of Abraham Lincon, Sikorkski, Kennedy, Dag Hammarskjöld, Olof Palme is still disputed, no matter how much evidence is presented.In the smolensk case, no matter how many academics present evidence, inteligence proffessionals leak there will never be certainty, but it constantly amazes me seemingly inteligent people accept a 30cm birch tree branch would chop of a wing of a tupelov, set aside the proffesional academic reports and physics simulations , all it takes is a few brain cells and common sense.

Headline from Deutche Welle
"Poland: Where Keynes meets Jesus
The business world is not impressed with Poland's ruling PiS party's plans to boost social spending. But, whisper it softly, the project's mix of social conservatism and social democratic redistribution could be working."

Grudging respect from the most virtue signalling, anti polish media outlet in europe :) :)

have always been against those benefits because I am accustomed to hard work and self reliance.

they give up work because they prefer to depend on benefits.

It is good to know what a PO voter really thinks, and by extension their neo-liberal obsessed leadership. Please do what you can so that your party can express their views to electorate more clearly. I am sure it will help the PO vote immensely.

just to leech off the system that EUROPEANS created

but but the brits had all those colonies and they feel so guilty about it, so to assuage their guilt the working class suffer whilst the elite virtue signal. Blair rapidly accelerated immigration without telling anyone, and now NHS waiting lists have skyrocketed, school class sizes have balooned, knife crime has tripled over the last decade years in london, pockets of religious extremism and third world mono-culturalism. NHS and housing for failed asylum seekers, no wonder all those people at Calais want to flee the oppressive state of France. Brexit was not just about polish immigration! no wonder dougexpol doesn't want to go back!

News / Polish final report on Smoleńsk aircrash [763]

If they flew to smolensk in the back of a hercules or antonov then your point might be less ludicrous. This was a civilian airplane tasked for transporting the heads of the goverment, not running bomb deliveries. The report from the Forensic lab will be published shortly, how will you try to deflect from the truth then?

So how will you attempt to smear the UK Defence Science and Technology Laboratory's Forensic Explosives Laboratory then ? They are very clear on explosives traces being on the aircraft, specifically the wing that sheared off, not perfumes etc. PiS stooges as well? The evidence is clear from a multitude of experts. However the russian apologists on this forum continue in their rabid defence play, paid PO shills?

Well the tide is finally turning, and the the 'conspiracy' theory is being proven true, with more and mroe serious media starting to take it seriously. Love how it makes years of postings by delph and jon making them look like deluded fools

"Given Taylor's status as a respected air crash investigator, the Smolensk disaster needs thorough reinvestigation by experienced third parties, neither Polish nor Russian. In truth, Western intelligence has had grave doubts about the "official" version of Smolensk from the outset. A senior Polish security official bluntly informed me, "Of course Warsaw knew the truth," meaning the previous government sought to keep peace with Putin " observer.com/2018/05/evidence-shows-russia-had-role-in-smolensk-crash-killed-kaczynski/

Poland in foreign media and blogs thread



Thought I would start a thread with thought provoking perspectives from the world media and think tanks. I found this article by Dov S. Zakheim, quite balanced and educational, from a conservative american jewish perspective. Quite like how he details historical facts detailing that the history of jews in Poland is neither black and white, but like humanity and multitude of greys, shamefull and heroic acts. Both sides have grieviences but for the sake of the future and our common bond we must look to the future. It made a change from the polarising commentry in haeretz and jerusalem post. regarding this issue.

Life / Worst aspects of living in Poland? [82]

- The aftermath of war, Warsaw and many other cities are standing on a masacre site, with the energy of millions of murdered people in the ground, If one is attuned to energy , there is a paltable tension on the street of warsaw. laugh if you want but it's true.

- the aftermath of communism, Poland is not like a western country it has its own values and ways of doing things. I found it difficult to make friends as people were generally suspiscious of a stranger being friendly, (of course i was travelling solo and not relying on family or job etc to establish commonality with people. Vodka helps of course.

- Because getting rich is new , materialism is the new religion and the first thing you are judged on. Poles were happy that the opera/concert hall in Poland was covered in advertising as this was a sign of progress. People were tripping out that I had dreadlocks, wore alternative clothes, yet was staying at the sobieski for months, they thought i was the son of an oligarch and all these business people in ties were giving me their business cards, but still suspicious of course.

-If you speak Polish with an accent, you will always be a foreigner to people, even if you were born there.
- Lack of a proper social welfare system , leading to crime, scams people freezing in the street.
- the stigmatisation and general unsympathy to mental health and alcoholism/drug addiction.
- the extreme culture wars far beyond anything i've seen before, half the political class thinks the other half murdered their leaders at smolensk. The other half regard their opponents as totalitarian fascists. Only ukraine is worse.

- Extreme poverty in the counryside leading to women coming to the big cities to become prostitutes or parents leaving the country and their kids stay behind looked after by babcia.

- General business ineficiency and lack of logic - I mean why is there Peron and Tor? Can't we just have one number for a platform like in normal countries?! Metro construction most expensive in europe due to corruption. stage 2 3km? wat a joke

- The former SB/UB higher ups and their children who are now men of capitalism, have no regard to the rule of law and control large sections of the economy.

- The skinheads and hooligans who will bash you as a pedał for giving them a hug.
- The expats who married a polish hottie but hate poland and resentfull about being ordered around by their wife and her family.
Rant over :)

News / PO to boycott TVP in Poland [34]

Considering Polsat and TVN are very anti the current goverment, what is wrong with TVP being pro goverment, to provide balance in the media landscape?. In Australia and UK the state run media is quite left, and people generally accept that, whats wrong with the state run media being conservative in poland whilst PIS is in power? There are higher rated, better funded dissenting channels. The Guardian/NYTimes line that media is being supressed in Poland rings hollow.

Law / Identity Theft Laws and Situation in Poland? [9]

Yes. This can still happen. It happened to a family member of someone I know. That was about 5 years ago.

So he/she had to pay it back, no identity stolen defense? thats horrible. oh man now i will have trepidation when i fly back to poland who knows maybe the mafia is using my identity and i am well known in the underworld... :(

But you can pay a small fee and get your credit checked.

If i'm liable for the loan maybe its not worth knowing! Can they put you in jail in Poland for not paying back credit?

Law / Identity Theft Laws and Situation in Poland? [9]

Hello old timers, been a while. glad to see the debate hamster-wheel is still going on :)

So last time I was in Poland (2012) had my dowod osobisty (no meldunek) birth certificate and citizenship certificate stolen when i was drunk on Marszałkowska. I remember hearing at the time that the identify theft laws were pretty anti consumer in Poland, and that if someone stole your identity and got a loan etc you were liable.

Plus also all those horror stories of the homeless being used as słups to be directors of dodgy businesses in the 90s. Is this still the the case or has Poland adopted EU regulations? What would be the organsiations to contact to find out if my identity is being misused? cheers and regards.
