    Poland can ask all they want … maybe even toss in a few demands, but they won’t get any thing. Why they won’t get it has nothing to do with the merits of their argument; rather, it is because the Polish aren’t kissing enough EU ass … and isn’t that the name of the game in Europe? But on that note, I suppose Poland has reasoned that if there was ever a chance to gain reparations, it would have to be in the Merkel Administration. [For a physicist, Merkel is about three tomatoes shy of a salad].

    Let’s say that Poland was successful in gaining a German payoff … would they then turn and demand similar compensation from Russia? I don’t think so —because Poland knows what Russia would suggest they do.

    Angela should just write the Poles a check for the trillion dollars, but make it payable in Weimar Republic currency. Then everybody will be happy.

    Except me, because my Chicago Bears are gearing up for another losing season.

    @ Fredd … LOL

    Any treasure or plunder by the Nazis AND Russians in the form of art, religious, or cultural artifacts plus any currency or precious metals should have been returned as soon as practical after the war.

    To claim due reparations when almost no Germans who were responsible or participated in such plunder or theft are still alive and not living in an alternate reality such as Alzheimer’s is as ludicrous as BLM’s demanding that all white Americans pay reparations to all blacks in America whether those whites owned slaves, had family who owned slaves, or their ancestors were even IN America during slavery . . . . . or whether the blacks receiving such largesse arrived in the US AFTER 1864 or are descendants of blacks who themselves owned slaves or of free blacks who never WERE slaves.

    Time for either a statute of limitations or just some common sense.

    And I’m STILL waiting for my white privilege to kick in. And my Asian wife STILL sometimes refers to me as a “white monkey.”

    I’m telling Mom!!

    fredd, I love that idea! Pay with Weimar currency! (which I have 2 large books of…in mint condition..pardon the unintended pun, and worthless…darn!)
    Sorry about your Bears!

    Mustang, yes…..if any country would pay it’d be one run by Angela…..my gosh, she entered office such a conservative and then her East German roots came through with a vengeance…(and that term might just be what actually DID happy…revenge?)
    What Merkel is doing to Germany makes me wonder yet again if Islamists have threatened leaders of European countries with annihilation if they don’t shut up and destroy themselves…..because there’s no logical reason for her taking in all those refugees, so MANY of whom are taking such horrible advantage of Germans, financially, killing, raping……….it’s so much worse than we hear here..

  6. geeez2014 says:

    Bocopro…it is very similar to the reparations expected here…nobody alive today did anything to those people (Robt Byrd hasn’t been dead that long, let’s face it!)….but PAY UP PAY UP!

    Yes, I’m surprised there’s no statue of limitations…My German stepson says this has been talked about for a long time, but it’s getting serious.
    And who wouldn’t do it with Merkel in charge? The soft, bleeding heart NUT ….she’s already destroying the German economy with what they’re paying for refugees who have no allegiance and, frankly, no affection for their culture, and now she probably WILL pay ONE TRILLION MORE to POland…gladly!

    “because there’s no logical reason for her taking in all those refugees…”

    She might still have some very Nazi leanings and long for the days when the Grand Mufti was an ally of Germany? Do we know how German Jews are faring there? We know that they’re under a lot of pressure and attacks in France, which IMO, has always been anti Semitic long before the Dreyfus days.

  8. Jersey Jack says:

    BTW..anyone hear about how the BLM convoys heading to help Texas are doing? Anyone know what mile marker they’re at on I10 West?

    Let the boomerang and the pendulum swing the other way and bite them in their privileged rear ends.

    “September 4, 2017

    OAN Newsroom

    In an bid to stop identity politics, a new White House petition aimed at abolishing the Congressional Black Caucus has began circulating.

    A petition was created on Monday, saying the CBC stokes racial division, and its mere existence fuels the tension.

    it also denounces the notion that African Americans need a special legislative body to protect them from the government.

    The petition argues the caucus uses rhetoric, which works against racial unity and therefore must be abolished.”

  10. Baysider says:

    Agree – a bit late. And why just the Germans? The Soviets came in from the other side and between the two of them decimated the top 3 tiers of potential leaders of resistance, from the mayors to police to teachers. And when you consider how the Russians (after they switched sides) parked their army east of the Vistula while signaling the Poles to rise up against the Germans in Warsaw and waited until the Germans ground down the resistance before they (Soviets) moved in, I think the Russians owe just as much. Maybe the Poles think Merkel is a softer mark than, say, Putin.

  11. -FJ says:

    Sure, make them pay the trillion… we’ve learned nothing. Let the Poles pick up their money at the Compiègne Wagon in Versailles.

  12. -FJ says:

    Oooops. I guess they’ll have to use a replica.

  13. -FJ says:

    The Reparations required in the Treaty of Versailles that ended World War 1 required Germany to repay the entire cost of the war that the French and British has spent.

    This led to a massive hyperinflation and economic troublers in Germany.

    Adolph Hitler took advantage of these economic hard times to rise to the position of Fuehrer (Leader) of Germany. He then proceeded to acquire Lebensraum (living space) for the ethnic Germans, and eventually attacked Poland, which was the start of World War 2.

  14. John M. Berger says:

    After giving this some thought; could it be that the real reason that the Poles want the money isn’t for reparations but rather for a more pro-active reason. Poland has had the good sense to keep the Moslem Vermin out of their country whereas their less perceptive neighbor to the west has not. Sadly the presence of said Vermin will make Germany un-livable for real Germans who will have to flee what was once their vaunted “Father Land”. Well guess where many, many of those refugees will want to go? If you guessed Poland, BINGO! Now, ordinarily that would put a financial burden on Poland, however, this would provide pre-payment for such. Any excess funding could be used by Poland to shore-up their borders with sand-bags and machine guns in a further effort to keep Moslem Vermin from infecting their beautiful country. Un-like some jokes, of the past, I think that those Poles just might be pretty damn clever!

    lMAGINE what the leftwing media’s going through to GET TRUMP!? THey’re looking into Melania’s clothing to see where it’s made so they can make a bad story on them? This isn’t the first time…it’s unbelievable…

    Poland is turning away refugees but the EU, last month, had given them 30 days to change that…maybe they’re funding themselves for the onslaught which IS destroying Germany. I think I mentioned here the other day that my German stepson who’s with me now has said he wants to be the first German refugee in America….which is funny but…kinda serious.

    Jersey Jack “…a new White House petition aimed at abolishing the Congressional Black Caucus has began circulating.” Tough to comment on that….I suppose we could say they just lost any Black vote for any Republican? That petition won’t go anywhere.
    “….it also denounces the notion that African Americans need a special legislative body to protect them from the government.”
    Um….this is a tough one.

    Everybody, thanks for your comments! Great input; total agreement here

    Poland owes me 500k

  17. I’m not sure that the current government under a different constitution CAN be held liable.
    The Kaiser agreed to terms and THEN the Weimar was formed.

    “They’re looking into Melania’s clothing to see where it’s made so they can make a bad story on them?”
    I’d hope these azzhats will look at the collars of their shirts, jackets, sandals, running shoes like Nike, Volvo’s are now being built in China by adding 3 new factories that has brought back life to that overlooked brand, their toasters, auto parts, their coffee makers, their jeans, their hankies, scarves, their iPhones, their Mac’s, PC’s, photo albums and….just about everything around you in your homes. We used to complain that the Japanese were taking over the planet…they still make good cars and some of the the best cameras yet…. but no where near the overwhelming intrusion of Chinas goods. She’s as “guilty” as any other business person looking at the bottom line.

  19. geeez2014 says:

    and,by the way, the Poles were horrid antiSemitics during WWII and so few people know that…

  20. Baysider says:

    Yes, horrid antisemites. Henry Orenstein is a New Jersey toy manufacturer and of some small poker fame who is a Pole that lived through the holocaust. Read his I Shall Live. One of my takeaways from it was the background he supplies of the politics and culture of the era. Even though I had heard that the Poles were very anti-semitic I knew little of these details. This was a big eye-opener and well worth reading if for no other reason.

    BTW, Reading the follow-up on some of these folks AFTER the war betrays the depth of hatred of Jews in that region. Unbelievable what happened when a few stragglers returned to their homes.
    The isolation of the Jewish community there was entirely different from the American Jewish experience, and I could better understand some of those ‘holdover’ fears. I see realities from the old country that birthed those fears, even if they are pretty much baseless here.

    Baysider, some day I’ll tell you about Paris and the Jews….talk about betrayal.
