there's absolutely no improvement
What you'd expect after 5 years of membership of which now nearly half of the time the world plunged into a crisis? It took other countries decades to crawl up after WW2, even with Marshall Help and without crisis. PL will get there eventually, it just takes them as much time as it did with other countries. And if there is no improvement, maybe you should question your own politicians or the guys who are responsible for the distribution and deployment of the funds which have been made available for PL.
EU favours more the advanced economies.
Are you talking about Greece? Greece who lied about their state deficit and has now a deficit that's about 3 or 4 times as much as is agreed as standard? Greece that, unlike other countries who received a lot of help, did not manage to pull it's economy upwards?Seanus
The double standards ppl here are referring to are for EU members, Seanus. Some of us here seem to believe that the EU is not treating them well enough, or they haven't seen any improvement. They all want it to go a bit too fast. It took other countries way more than 5 years to crawl out of the pit they were in, why is this to be expected for them then? I actually don't believe there are double standards within the EU. If there are double standards, then it's in terms of payment to
the EU. Some countries have to pay 5 to 6 times as much in contribution than other countries, and getting not so much back from that same EU. I am not talking about absolute figures, I'm talking about the relative ones. Now, I'm not saying that NL or BE should receive a lot from the EU as we don't need to develop, but it's strange to hear countries that are cashing in relatively big time, complain the most about being not treated equally. I think the main problem is that they want things to happen too fast. They will get all the standards and bens of the EU, it just takes time. If you have, for example, a club in which members A,B and C pay 200 Euros per month and members D, E and F, only pay half of that and members G,H and I don't pay anything at all, it's to be expected that members A, B and C will want to have the biggest say in that club. I am not saying that this should be so as I believe in equal votes for every memberstate and equal rights and so on, but I don't want to hear from the biggest receivers that they have been treated so badly by the EU.
because its something more than land. its a pride, its the language, its the religion, its the culture, its history, its identity ...
It's a cultural entity and what defines a cultural entity above anything else? Correct, the language. But I think your description goes for any continent, McCoy.
Everyone's ancestors in the long run were bare-assed.
And if you go way and way back, we all descent from Afrika anyway :)cheehaw
and anti semitic par excellence cheehaw is mingling in again and found another stick for the Jews whom she hates so much. Here's something for you to chew on, baby:
Have a look at the table at the bottom of the page: around 1500 to 2000 cases in the US alone over the years.
You will see that several countries have seperate pages on Wiki that deal with the history of abuse in that specific country...
And: did you miss the part that I condemn all child abuse, no matter who is guilty of it? All child molesters should rot in jail as far as I'm concerned. Be they Jewish, Catholic, Protestant or whatever.
Lets compare tax returns, eh? You know my address, call around. Lets compare tax returns. If you forget my address, head to the Jobstown Inn. Ask for Dan, the locals will direct you.
I don't go to slums. And my tax returns have been pretty decent since I've been living here. Maybe I will fetch you a job, get you off the street and put your mind to more useful things than what you're doing now.
The truth is anti-semetic. Let us look at who is leading the fight for Ireland to open her borders. All Jews. Why dont they put pressure on Israel to be more multicultural?
There are Jews from all over the world in Israël. Arab is an official language there besides Hebrew.
Hell, god bless Dev for turning the jew away during WW2.
I could retaliate by saying God bless Dev for turning away the Irish during the great famine, but I won't lower myself to your level. You don't see it that often nowadays, ppl with a negative IQ, but you somehow are a bright and shiny example that it is pssbl.
RevokeNice got 510 points from a possible 600 in his Leaving Cert(State exams). I am also college educated, jew boy.
I'm delighted for you. Strange that if you're acadamically educated (Hospitability it was, I seem to remember), such empty-headed bullcrap is coming out of you. And some academic you are when you don't even know where Morocco, Turkey and Guadeloupe is located.
