George,

Why the hate man? I thought you and I had had civil conversations in the past even if we didn't agree on much and I personally thought your views on emerging markets and especially Russia were very much mistaken. I also happen to disagree with much of the pro-Russia propaganda you like to promote on this forum, but hey, I understand everybody has to make a living somehow.

No hurt feelings from my part George, but accusing people without fundamentals or evidence is not acting in a reasonable or fair manner.

Regards,

Russophobe

"Fresh cut". Sounds like a kind of sausage to me. As the saying goes, you shouldn't want to know what's in a sausage....

George,

I don't see any difference between the two Georges, both write the same nonsense, both talk crap and empty bs about emerging markets who are not performing above developed countries and both Georges also lick Russia's anus up to the sphincter.

The only difference is that Y George at least puts I George in perspective and demonstrates that what the low life Stara Zagora monkey says is pure nonsense and highly ungrateful behaviour to his adopted homeland of Canada.

Go back home to your gypsy ghetto in SZ and leave us the FUCK ALONE!!

Oxymoron,
The real name is Zheliazkov and NOT ZhelYazkov!

Way to stupid simple and pitiful smearing campaigns!
Listen seedy, Rusophobe, Agent tibidu/picadily or whatever piece of crap you are...
Not only the future but also the present belongs to the emerging markets!
There is a new world order and the wealth is shifting towards the billions of consumers in the highly competitive and relatively well educated emerging markets! Russia also is there to stay and prosper like it or not!

BTW leave Hamilton alone, it's the best city for investment in Canada!

Listen Novinite these numbers are completely misleading because they point out only that construction has revived because our Russian brothers are buying houses in the Black Sea coast. You see Bulgarians, these silly conflicts between Russia and the EU only hurt Bulgaria when Bulgaria needs our brothers more than ever.

The Russians are soft and warm people. Just because they don't smile and wear Hawaiian style shirts from the 1970s and a lot of gold it doesn't mean we're not the same people. Who cares if Russia wants to control Europe? The truth is the EU needs to be controlled by someone, and we have three options, the Americans, the Russians or the Arabs. Who wants the Americans here?

I say constantly that Bulgaria needs to open its doors to emerging markets. Rich Arabs, Rich Chinese, Rich Indians, why would they buy a home in the Caribbean, Florida, Spain or Italy when you have places like Aheloy and Byala?

In emerging market cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Mumbai, Sao Paulo, and Hamilton you see a lot people talking about Bulgaria. A gook from Vietnam told me the other day: "In Bulgalia you have lot opoltunity"

Everybody can see that opportunity except us Bulgarians. Now get your lazy asses up and start trading with emerging markets and making money and start listening to me, the Oracle of Hamilton.
