WUI (Writing under the influence)

Somebody once said we are all Americans, sometimes born in the wrong places.
On a warm autumn day in 1986, while enjoying beer with my college buddies,
I decided to join my new homeland.

I've come to appreciate the ideals that helped create this great country.
Liberalism, political-correctness, multiculturalism and moral equivalence
are destroying it.

No country is perfect but....

...this is pure schizophrenia.

Poland just announced that, on one hand, it will build a nuclear power plant in 2020 while there are no such plans in the US.

Poland hopes to start production of electrical energy in a nuclear power station in 2020, PM Donald Tusk said during a press briefing after the Cabinet sitting yesterday.

Building permit should be obtained and construction works should start in 2016.

All the necessary legal acts in this respect will be passed by June 30.
The nuclear power project will be pursued regardless of whether PGE is allowed to take over its state-owned peer Energa or not, but the latter scenario will be more difficult and more expensive, Tusk said.

"Nobody has any doubt that it would be cheaper, easier and more advantageous for the project if PGE carried it out as the owner of Energa," Tusk said. "But if after using all of the legal possibilities it turns out that PGE cannot buy Energa, we will pursue this project anyway, only it will be a bit more complicated in terms of finding investors or credit."

Listed power group PGE is estimated to spend a total of 35-55 billion zlotys for the construction of a nuclear power station with the capacity of around 300 MW, the government's press office wrote in a statement.
Until the final decision on the investment is made, which should happen at the end of 2013, PGE is expected to spend some 1 billion zlotys, the statement also read.

The sale of Energa to PGE has been blocked by the anti-monopoly office UOKiK but PGE appealed against this decision.

On the other hand, Poland now has a law that requires a certain number of female politicians.

President Bronislaw Komorowski, yesterday, signed into law the bill requiring that at least 35% of candidates on party ballot lists in local, regional and parliamentary elections are women.

The law on gender parity was initially drafted by the Women’s Congress, which argues that women should have an equal representation in politics.

So what happens if there are no takers? It's like the title IX in the US: you start by eliminating the men....

How about this? As of today, it is required that 35% of all men in Poland have children. And by "have" I mean birth them. Not possible? Why? Aren't men and women the same?
