History / Communism, was it the best form of government Poland ever had? [68]

sure here is jon's quote

Nor can you routinely dismiss everything that existed or was created during the PRL as 'commie'. A system, by the way, which did more for Poland than any previous government they'd had. Totalitarianism was simply a fact of life, as it is in so many places now.

As you can see he is a closet communist who excuses oppresion and totalitarianism. He ignores the first modern democracy in europe in 15th to 17th century as well as the 2nd republic.

jon said a murderous communist regime which killed more than 50 thousand people in poland 'was the best form of goverment poland has ever had'. This is like saying the nazi goverment was the best form of goverment germany had.

News / News from the Poland's media front - Drop in sales for Uważam Rze. [15]

well jon any weekly that has been operating since 1957 and whose editors enthusasticaly worked for the former communist regime would be somewhat tainted don't you think. One its long time editors became the last communist prime minister of poland. It has been alledged that they chose not to publish coruption details of Rywin affair. Of course i do not deny that it has a wide ranging and inteligent set of contributers.

News / News from the Poland's media front - Drop in sales for Uważam Rze. [15]

The staff left, by the way, when that dreadful guy was fired - basically they all threw a hissy fit.

If ALL your journalists leave then that means one is not managing the business properly.
Polityka? You are joking right, the communist mouthpiece since 1956?

News / News from the Poland's media front - Drop in sales for Uważam Rze. [15]

If your grasp of polish was better, you would know that all the journalists who worked on Uważam Rze left after the new owner started intefering with the editorial line. Readership numbers collapsed and Uwazam Rze is regarded as having been taken over and no longer representing the right. In 2013 people who want to read proper investigative journalism from masters of their field like Witold Gatowski as well as traditonal right viewpoints ; read Do Rzeczy and W Sieci. Thank you for your attention.

News / POLAND to have its own automobile brand (back), the SYRENA! [36]

It sounds like a great idea, but their press release gives me pause.

AK Motor International Corporation is an automotive intellectual property management company. Our focus is on brand asset management,

Basically this company has just bought the brand name syrena and do not seem to have any automotive manufacuring experience. Unfortunately polands car manufacturing capacity has been destroyed, the fso plant in warsaw has been dismantled due to corruption and mismanagement.

History / Documentary about Transformation in Poland since 1989 [3]

Found this great documentary series examining the transformation since communism from a sociological perspective. Was produced in 2009 for the 20th anniversary.

The first episode looks at the round table process. The second episode examines privatization and the role of corporations in Poland.
Apparently after the first episode, political pressure led to further episodes disappearing from TVP2 schedule only to be shown months later. . Highly recommended.
Needs Silverlight plugin.

On par with Sumer and Messopotamia civilsations, Agriculture, Cermaics, Metalurgy. Most probably ancient slavs.

News / Skins vs anarchists in Warsaw [93]

its a pity that harry can only get his information from his missus about poland. If he had bothered to learn polish he would understand that politics is a lot more nuanced than one march for patriots and another for neo nazi scum. But I guess such a simplistic view of poland is typical of many expats in warsaw who do not assimiliate but form cultural ghettos. These sort of people talk to poles in english but predomently socialice with other foreigners at expat bars.

But perhaps pf should give harry some lessons in polish so he can understand the country more i will start.

UK, Ireland / Former minister admits UK messed up on immigration [78]

[standpointmag.co.uk/node/5252/full] - great article in the standpoint about immigration in england.

I am usually pro multiculturalism but a few things in the article stood out. The first is a lithuanian business owner says

"I don't live in Britain. I live in Lithuania. I watch Lithuanian TV. I use the internet in Lithuanian. My friends are all Lithuanians. This shop is Lithuanian. I only meet Lithuanians. The only thing I do in Britain is pay taxes to the British."

That is worrying and explained later in the article by the differences between the american and brittish dream. There is no real pride in becoming british or forging a new future like in america.

Poles and Albanians talk about Britain as a "mini-America". But there is no British dream. East Europeans came to London not inspired by a dream of how great things could be, but by the knowledge of how much worse they can be. Talk of Britishness draws a blank face.

Of course judging by the behaviour of expat and tourist brits in poland who would want to become a brit:?

1:15 to 1:25 shows several molotovs hitting the ground, as if u missed them, all the news channels reported it too, but i guess its hard to know whats going on when u don't speak polish and can only rely on the warsaw business journal

News / Skins vs anarchists in Warsaw [93]

tvp info says that the cops disapeared as soon as the fascists approached/attacked the squat for half an hour. Also that the russian embassy was left unguarded till the violence occured. Obviously a preplanned tactic to raise a climate of fear and allow the authorities and media to tar the whole march with the violent thugs brush. Though some people in the march seems to have done the goverments job by burning the rainbow.

Love / Massive problems with Polish mother-in-law [36]

@timefily

have you thought about a death that is natural and untraceable. Potassium Chloride for instance would be perfect for your needs, IIt breaks down to natural substances and there is nothing for the coroner to notice.

News / Skins vs anarchists in Warsaw [93]

I wasin't defending it at all, in fact I prob would have been on the roof of Przychodnia, I was commenting on the fact that tvn24 breathlessly reported that a community center was attacked, when there is no way of knowing who started the battle, the fascists/hooligans or the anarchists on the roof

anarchists throw molotovs from their squat on ul Skorupki , skinheads start ripping trees and getting upset. All so very inconsequential. of course tvn24 potrays it as people from independence march attack cultural community center haha.
