Les gens qui ne rient jamais ne sont pas des gens sérieux

Be who you are and say what you mean, those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind

As someone who has never studied economics but loves the euro for the pure and simple fact that money is just a means to an end and when you travel around it's so much easier to use the same currency in different countries, I find this annoying.
'Getting rid of one's own currency is a very serious limitation of one's own sovereignty'.
Yeah. Nevermind the way the single currency might further help trade between Poland and the rest of the EU, make the free movement of people so much easier and stop exchange offices ripping travellers off by taking huge commissions to change one currency for another.
Lech Kaczynski has been in office for a day and has already managed to piss me off.

Ach, the Duck brothers were going to stall on Euro-entry anyways. Now they're solidifying their hold on monetary policy. Next up, abolishing the RPP, and putting interest rates in the hands of the finance minister. This is planned-economy stuff, and they're doing it so that they can manipulate the economy when they start spending like drunken sailors while cutting taxes at the same time.

He's not even in the office, yet. Ah, the things we've got to look forward to.

I still feel a bit hung-over from the election. This is what it msut have been like to wake up in the US last year and find out that George W. Bush is president.

Oh, the Kaczynskis do suck!!

You're right Gustav, it's no surprise. Kinuk, I couldn't have put it better myself. They suck.
I wonder how much rant material the next few years will provide...

I had that experience twice, kinuk, but in two different countries. In 2000 it was in the states, last year it was here.

It didn't feel any better.

Now you know how I felt Kinuk! Like a swift kick right in the family jewels. Kaczynski is such an idiot, for those of you who don't speak the polski language let me tell you, he sounds the way he looks.
