Eu refuz sa cred asa ceva.

Da ce copii nostri vor murii la 20 de ani , le vom pune centura de castitate pana sa moara , si ei vor face cate 15 copii de buleandra?

Eu inteleg temerile tale , sunt si eu putin ingrijorat cu ceea ce rau fac ei prin lume si pun in carca noastra dar ca sa inteleg ca vom fi minoritari pe pamantul nostru , deja e un scenariu post - apocaliptic pt mine si nu vreau sa`l iau in serios .

Re: Simona Halep Cheering thread - volume 2

Should Gypsies feel offended that Romanians feel offended when they are confused with Gypsies?

Just to quote the author Brian Wilder,

"I've learned that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different."

In their defense i think they seen a dozen if not all of them. And if u woander if i have something against your point of view , i dont , but u must respect an opinion coming from some experts ( i didn`t name them but i`m sure they know more than me in this matter ) ,for you and your opinion to be respected.
I respect their opinion, and I agree 100% with that quote.
The problem is that many of this kind of rankings are made just to have an article to publish and they present them as the most beautiful waterfalls/cities/whatever in the world, not as the most beautiful waterfalls in their point of view. And usually the rankings are made without visiting those places and without any countable argument.
The Bigar waterfall is 1.5 meters high and from the pictures it seems it is very big and you can go under it and take a bath. It's a joke to present it as one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world. I know some people who went to visit it after they read this article and they were disappointed.

So tomorrow we find out who are the Serbian girls that came to Bucharest. I think we have 80% changes to win if Jankovic doesn't come.

No need to, Romanians are Romanians, Gypsyes are Gypsyes, French people are French, Japonese are Japonese, Tatars are Tatars and so on!

A few people can win somebody's heart in a lifetime.But, she has already occupied a spot in mine

So cute off-court , so deadly on-court ! Simona Halep

That doesn't mean she can't change her mind though , as many sportsmen do and did.

I wouldn't say that giving how well Jaksic and Ivanovic have played lately. Simona is after a break and it usually takes her at least 1 match to regain form, plus Sorana and others are not playing well. If Begu keeps playing well I hope the coach has the guts to play her.

Codrut, if you are an american , then let me ask u this, because i understand a sub question there.

If u start stealing or begging or do other crimes , and tell the officers ( police ) that u are an Native American from United States ( which probably u are not , tell me if u are then i can give u another example ) , they ( the native - americans ) won`t be offended if you lie about that ?

To answer in a raw format of your question , they are not offended. They want this kind of "cloak" around them. U know , the definition of a gipsy in a simple sentence is a nomadic style of life. Well why somebody who steal , robb, cheats , kiddnap, live in houses that are about to collapse, or just houses made from scraps of metal and cardboard they find , tell the truth about who he is and what he does for living ?

They like a simple style of life , but this doesn`t mean your life will be simplier if u meet them )

I would say over 50% though . And the Begu part won't happen unfortunately , as Tecsor was Cirstea's coach and her husband is still her (Sorana's) physiotherapist .

For me , Begu is safer than Cirstea. I know , she can be really motivated for Fed Cup ( Cirstea ), but i would risk with Irina, she`s "safer" to me.

Now this is one of the more extraordinary threads I've read here in a while. I'm an American. Knowledge of my own ancestry on at least one side of my family very shallow -- maybe four generations. I.e., I know the family genealogical line only back into the late 19th century. So I'm curious about this. The analogy seems to be: Just as gypsies lie about their ancestry in order to excuse, or contextualize, their "stealing/begging/other crimes," so, Native Americans would never do that. A dissemblance is being observed here. There's a problem with the analogy, even as a dis-resemblance. It makes the assumption that social irresponsibility is a characteristic of reservation life, or culture, here. That's an old canard. The bother with it is that the Sixties in the U.S. very much transvalued the terms of tribal heritage in the U.S. Young people embraced the political and cultural goals of AIM (the American Indian Movement). Now, if U.S. citizens, non-reservated, are marked by even a quartile of tribal ancestry, they proudly own it, advertise it. Our U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren, got into trouble for doing that, despite the fact that no one, looking into her ancestry, could find the Native American blood she claimed in her ancestry. So the scenario your analogy presents is quite unlikely. If there's still social dissipation on reservations, and there is, I doubt anyone is using the syndrome of it to contextualize, apologize for, or otherwise excuse their crimes. Not to be pedantic, but that's worth correcting, from my point of view.

Just because Irina won a couple ITF 25 K tournaments don`t make her a better (safer if you will) player than Sorana ! I like and support Irina, as I do to all Romanians out there, but just NO !
The team should stick to the plan, Simona and Sorana in singles, Monica and Irina in double. If Ana will join the Serbian team, than she will be the most dangerous player but even so, she can only win 2 matches, the other 3 should be ours. Let`s not be frightened by two players outside TOP 100. This tie is ours to win or lose
