Oct 16, 2009 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Canada.com

Poles are up in arms over what they complain is the European Commission's "Germanization" of the name of the father of modern astronomy, Nicolas Copernicus, in the title of an EU space program.

Well if that's true its funny how this push to make Copernicus German or part German has only come relatively recently in history starting with the Nazis.
For hundreds of years after Copernicus' death the Germans couldn't care a less about Copernicus and even mocked him while Poles always celebrated him. The German Martin Luther and other Germans called Copernicus a foolish Pole and made other disparaging comments about his ethnicity when Luther and other Germans couldn't believe that Copernicus said that the Earth revolved around the Sun. Now that we all know today that his theory is true, the Germans after mocking Copernicus as a Pole now HYPOCRITICALLY say he was German.
Copernicus' ethnicity was 100% Polish just like philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche's ethnicity was 100% Polish. Nietzshce had a German name, spoke fluent German, but his ethnicity was 100% Polish. The reason why Nietzsche was forceful about talking about his Polish ethnicity despite appearing to be German, was because he didn't want Germans to claim he was ethnically German which Germans tend to do.
Also Nietzsche said that Copernicus' ethnicity was Polish and nothing else. Nietzsche who was a brilliant man and who had a good understanding of both Germany and Poland, would know about Copernicus' ethnicity.

Yeah, and since Putin is still in power, North Stream and South Stream have been approved, the missile shield has been abandoned, Russia defeated Georgia, your pet Ukraine is in the shit, you have a black president many hate in the States, Poland is still paranoid, NATO is up to its neck in Afghanistan, the US declared they 'won' in Iraq, Fanny Mea started the great depression, US budget in a downward spiral, GM and Chrysler in trouble, China became the First World Exporter, blah, blah, blah ...

Russia scores on almost ever level and America is in sharp decline!!

I am on the Russian camp, so I feel good about it.

You are backing America and you are very suicidal, I can see!"!

When are you going to start learning mandarin? Ha, ha, ha ...
