Dec 22, 2009 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: WYOW-TV Eagle River

Braving the Balkan chill, a few dozen people who participated 20 years ago in Romania's overthrow of communism huddled Tuesday around a commemorative monument to recall those events.

Have I got bombastic proposal for your Roma republic ?
Why don´t you find somebody like Causescu was ?
That way, much stricter rules will apply and Romas are kept on leash.

Do you Roma republic people have enough to eat today ?
When one reads the above decegypsy, he must get the feeling of him being mentally deprived by the lack of food.
Several years ago, I´d seen deprived children in Roma´s orphanages, perhaps the above chap was one of those.
It´s hard to be ahead of the pack for him.

Somewhere sometime someone made the comment "Romania is primitive" and all our angry neighbors found a target to unleash their personal frustrations upon. None of the criticisms are based on facts. These are angry rants from people who are angry at their bosses(but too cowardly to stand up to them), who are angry at women(because they can't have them, except by paying them on the internet), and who are generally miserable in their daily existence.

So how do they deal with their personal frustrations?...by becoming "internet warriors" and bashing that "primitive Romania" because, well, everyone is doing it and "I can't be bothered to think for myself."

Facts;
Henry Coanda -- Inventor of the jet engine
Hermann Oberth -- The "inventor" of spacetravel
Constantin Brancusi -- essentially invented abstract art by being the first to abstract reality to an unrecognized form yet retaining it's spirit, in the process influencing all the modern artists that followed from Picaso to Frank Lloyd Right.
Nadia Coamaneci -- probably the most world famous athlete of all time.
...and along with Mircea Eliade, Eugène Ionesco and many more... all these people had an effect on the entire world's social evolution, essentially changing the world. The world would be different today had these people not existed.

When it comes to industry Romania is one of the largest ship builders in Europe. Romania has its own auto industry, and produces one of the top sellers in the world today, which has ranked very highly in customer satisfaction.

Romania has one of the strongest IT industries in Eastern Europe. Bit Defender is one of the top rated ani-virus in the world.

And here is something that is virtually unknown.
This article references to it but does not go into detail. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jazz#Origins
... the European music they are talking about that mixed with African beats giving birth to jazz, then rock and roll, and eventually hip hop, was in fact traditional Romanian music. Simply visit New Orleans and look at the history of American music and you will see it clearly, along with the gypsy influence in New Orleans, tarot card reading, crystal ball fortune telling, etc. Simply go to You Tube and look up Doina, Lautari, Fratii Petreus, and if you listen to the nuances and rhythms you will see the influence on Blues( http://www.youtube.com/watch ...), Jazz( http://www.youtube.com/watch ...), and Rock and Roll( http://www.youtube.com/watch ...)+( http://www.youtube.com/watch ...) clearly, since all these forms of Romanian music are hundreds/possibly thousands of years old far predating American music.

These are just a few facts and there are many more, and today Romanian film makers are dominating the European market, as are Romanian singers, and athletes. Romanian artists are still making a big splash(Alexandra Nechita) and soon we will have more influence in finance and industry as we grow stronger. This will take longer as we are competing with China, Japan, America, Germany, Switzerland, true powerhouses, but we will get there. The fact of the matter is that the Romanian people are some of the most well rounded people on the planet. We are good at everything, while others excel at one talent but fail in many others.

So let the frustrated spew their venom for while they cry... we grow, because nothing can destroy us, it has always made us stronger... just look at our history! We are still here even after two thousand years of imperial assaults. The empires are gone... but we are still here! a unique Thraco-Latin culture in a sea of Slavs, we have survived for two thousand years and getting stronger every year.

and this; http://international.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query2/r... :@field%28DOCID+ro0021%29

...is how it all started.

Yury my dear red "tavarish" have you snorted borsht again?
Lay off the bad habit,is addictive and counterproductive.
Build roads not guns,better atomic reactors,you know like the ones that do not blow up,airplanes that don't fall of the sky and mechanical equipment that does not brake down.
If you achieve that ,then,you could say that "history" was made and the world will pause and take notice.
Oh God what am I going to do with you mujiks?
