Let`s live those wonderful moments together!

What do you consider the most important things which have happened in 2012 in Poland primarily (but not only)?

PS. If talking about foreign events, try to connect them with Poland somehow, please, because I want this thread to stay in the Polish section, not off topic.

Obama got reelected, awesome, nice to know the evolution is alive and kicking. I strongly believe he has uttered word 'Poland' numerous times in his life.

The Israeli army's shameful destruction of an ancient well in occupied Palestine, an ancient well that a Polish charity had nobly restored, certainly made for a heated discussion on the forum, but unfortunately a gang of hasbarist scumbags spammed the thread with off-topic posts and personal attacks leading to its permanent closure.

Yes, indeed, and many experts here and there were debating who was a better candidate in Poland and Am Polonia` context: Obama or Romney.

I strongly believe he has uttered word 'Poland' numerous times in his life.

Unfortunately, in the process of talking about Poland, Obama scored a major blunder when he mentioned Polish death camps. What a halfwit!

With all due disrespect pawian, compared to Obama, you are an amoeba, a single cell organism that got so horribly disfigured during the cell division leading to your existence that, that one cell, you consist of, needed to be amputated straight away.. with a hammer... I recommend you read one of his books, for example 'Dreams from My Father" and then come back and say he's a halfwit.

'Dreams from My Father"

The son of the tribesman who once ate the Polish missionary in Africa and hence we can say that Obama has Polish roots??? :)

Ooops, sorry, I made a hasty mistake. Be more silly, please. It is so amusing. :)

PS. Sorry, I didn`t know you are such a fan of Obama. If so, I withdraw. I didn `t mean to hurt your feelings.

no it's not. To most that are not absolute maniacs, saying a city in Poland or Polish city means the same thing.
Polish concentration camp, to most normal people means concentration camp in Poland. Only a fool that does not know history would think that this meant that the camp was run by Poles, or that Poles were responsible for it.

And anyone that calls a man who graduated from Harvard, magna cum laude, a half-wit, is a half-wit himself.

I think it's still a massive faux pas. "Polish death camp" is an ambiguous term, especially since another common adjective to "death camp" is "Nazi", so it's a tough thing to swallow for "Polish" and "Nazi" to be used in the same context, in the same position, in the same phrase, but with different implications. You could also say "German death camps", but even I would avoid such language so as not to equate all Germans with Nazis. In any case, Poles quite understandibly object to being associated with death camps.

And just because someone is intelligent doesn't mean they are always right. It may make it more likely, but even that is not a given.

I was trying to explain to few guys I work with about this particular sensitivity of Poles, and they thought that such a furor over something that could easily be brushed off as semantics might look like "the lady doth protest too much".

Most people are fools who don`t know history. Even you had known nothing about it until you came here and read about Polish death camps controvercy in the PF. :):):)

Come on, graduating from an American university is a piece of cake. Enough to have sponsors from Saudi Arabia and you get your diploma. :):):)

Poland handled that astonishingly well in light of the worrying public depth cumulated in just 20 years.

The woman who staged a daughter kidnaping hoax:

huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/06/madzia-wasniewska-poland-fake-kidnapping_n_1257379.html

is currently in detention and prosecutors are going to accuse her of murder.

"In the death of six-month Madzi no eyewitnesses. The woman from Poland says that the child died as a result of an accident . Conversely, according to prosecutors , the girl was strangled . The key here is the opinion of experts , who include examining the internal organs of a child found petechiae . In their view, they clearly indicate strangulation.

Catherine W. responds well - except murder - for notification of law enforcement crime and creating false evidence to refer the case against another person. It can even threaten her life in prison ."

Polish concentration camp, to most normal people means concentration camp in Poland.

Most people know nothing about history therefore most people would actually believe that the concentration camps were Polish and not German.

Never quite understood the obsession with obama. I guess the media did a good job brainwashing people like you to believe in "change" and "hope."

and on this, we must disagree.
Some people's knowledge might come from TV or movies instead of history books, but unless you live under a rock, everyone I ever run across is aware of WWII, nazis and concentration camps.

And "Polish death camps" are not going to confuse them as to which side Poland was on.
But these protests and furor over semantics might make them wonder what that's all about.

And that`s awrite! The more people wonder, the more intelligent they become. Stay tuned, it is good for you.

Never quite understood the obsession with obama.

After all, the first black president. It means something.

I guess the media did a good job brainwashing people like you to believe in "change" and "hope."

Really important things haven`t changed - Obama is indebting the USA like no other president before.
