1. Poland seems to be going over the edge here in recent years...

I'm Polish, by ancestry, and I've never really been able to say "I'm proud to be Polish", but I do sympathize with my ancestors and the difficult history they have had to endure. The last century was especially brutal, since Hitler planned to pretty much liquidate the Poles and establish a German population to take their place.

For a brief moment I felt proud that they were breaking from the Soviet Union and seemed to be moving toward the west and securing a stable future. Now, not so much. I will always be Polish in ancestry, but once again I feel the same shame for Poland that I feel for being American...when a nationalistic, right wing government takes control...there is very little to be proud of.
