The Bulgarian institutions reacted relatively quickly and adequately to the current gas crisis, the Bulgarian President Georgi Parvanov stated Friday.

Parvanov is giving his annual lecture focused on the country's national security.

"But we have to admit, it is precisely this gas crisis that showed us we have done close to nothing during all those years of the transition to try finding alternatives for dealing with crisis situations.

Nothing has been done. We do not have any other pipe than the one from over 20 years ago. I am sorry, but we failed to screw in even one more bolt since the time of Todor Zhivkov.

And just because of that I do not accept the mentoring tone of those who were in power during the transition years, who had the opportunity to contribute to the creation of alternative possibilities," Parvanov stated.

The President's lecture is entitled "National Security in the Light of New Challenges" and is organized by the "Nikolay Dobrev" Institute and the Young Leaders Academy.

“I amnot, nor is anobody obliged to give you anything, man! Obviously your team of loosers has spread all over the world, to give advices to other loosers. Hopefully you will stay there forever...LOL”

Gee Buddy,

You are dumber than I had imagined...
Was addressing me as “man” supposed to be some sort of originality?
But you are right: I am pretty loose, man, and all my friends-- spread all over the world-- are too: having a good time, and giving advice to stiffs like you to loosen up.
Now, this calls for “LOL”

“ Hopefully you will stay there forever”

HUH???? Should I say Thanks?

So, Buddy, you still believe in FOREEVER? Like: BKP forever? USSR forever? HA!

More reason for “LOL” on my part and time for Geritol, for you, Ophelia ;-)

"We have too many, unloved in their countries, western excrement, coming to BG for love."

HAHAHAHA! A slut spreading her legs for money is not love, dumbo! Even you, especially you, should be able to tell the difference! I was wrong to call Bulgarian women sluts, from now on I am calling all Bulgarians - both male AND female sluts! Kolega, you are just a typical Bulgarian, born and bred and educated. Everyone else is exactly like you, only not as honest. You been living in the US too long, American honesty has rubbed off on you.

See? That's why I love Bill. He KNOWS the difference between love and sex. And there is something passionately virginal, even old maidenish about his thinking, but it is honorable and admirable, squeaky clean. I have NO idea if I am attracted to him in person, physically, I just love his way of thinking and writing.

By the way, If you have kid(s) and if they are smart enough to get into a good college, be prepared to pay $50,000 per year per child. Mediocre state colleges are less, but you get what you pay for. It is very hard to get an HE loan these days.

As i cant speak for Kolg, I would assume that it would be OK for Eurotourist to take the advantages here.. No differnt then him working in the US

But I must say that Kolg has another good point: that the big advantage of making money in the States has become 10x harder then it use too BECAUSE OF THE MESS THEY PUT THEMSELVES in...

And the real problem is WHERE else to go?

Good luck Kolg in making your fortune their!

Kog,

If it is OK for you to rape the USA for a living and move if you can rape somewhere else harder, is it OK for me to move to Bulgaria for very cheap house prices, live like a king on no money and be surrounded by beautiful women. Drink the best of beer, enjoy unparalleled hospitality, amazing summers and again beautiful women. Not to mention my contribution towards the local economy.
GO ON BIG MOUTH, COME AND THROW ME OUT!!!!! . . . Didn't think so. Coward!

"You are so right - talking about money is vulgar and uncouth by any civilized standards."

I love it.
That's me babe! Good description;) Seriously.
I've worked hard on mastering those qualities, and I will consider your recognition a compliment.

"If you reflect what all Bulgarians are, then the Turkish toilet sculpture is appropriate. only too clean."

OK Gustav, since you and I obviously have one thing in common in that our favorite subject is - me - let me spell it:
I don't care about any one or anywhere. All I care about is BG and if I help people like you, draw bad opinion of all Bulgarians, then I've done my job - I would dearly love it if you stop coming to BG.
We have too many, unloved in their countries, western excrement, coming to BG for love.

Back to our favorite topic:
All I care is money and will go to hell to make more. I am a very basic, materialistic, racist (but comfortable with it) honest person.
I know you think that Russia hates me personally, and that one person can reflect a nation, but that's something you have to live with.
I dislike many nations too, but put up with them for money.
Like a whore - that's me.
Are we OK with it?;)

OK I get it.
It's not the amount of money, as much as I am pissed at the mess the US made of things.
I feel like I got on the wrong train and now can't find a way to get off.

What else is there in the US besides money? And now that's not the case anymore.
The US is a Saudi Arabia with women driving;)

You are so right - talking about money is vulgar and uncouth by any civilized standards. Money - if you have it, no need to brag about it, it is vulgar. If you don't have it, there is nothing to talk about. In either case, a moot subject.

"I am in the States for money"

Kolegialen, better you there than here. I feel sorry for the Americans, I usually like them. If you reflect what all Bulgarians are, then the Turkish toilet sculpture is appropriate. only too clean.

"I appreciate your sense of humor, but I think that kind of money is nothing. Nellie is right."

Kolegialen I don't know how can you say that you appreciate my sense of humour and than tell me that "that kind of money is nothing" to you. I was not talking about the "immodest amount of money" at all. It was immodest to make the comparison on the first place imho.
Speaking about money is too plebeian.

How about that for a sense of humour. LOL

Bill baby,

Why am I a hypocritical?
I am very honest - I am in the States for money.
In BG I'd make not 80K but probably 8K so I am here.
What's the problem?
Give me 800K and I'll go to Saudi Arabia.
I don't care. What's hypocritical about being open and honest that you are interested in better pay?

Why do people accuse me of being basic and simplistic, when I am so honest that that's exactly what I am?
When was the last time I talked about right and wrong?

"I couldn't survive on less than 300K, the way I see life"

Why do Gyppos always brag about money?

I can tell you a good insult for these asses... "communists" and "socialists".. thats the worse insult I think anyone can give to anyone. In truth, the simple label for them are 'opportunistic thieves' whole stole everything possible from Bulgaria.

Kolega,

I feel your pain, dude! I will be thinking of you when I am doing lunch at Petrossian next week, where I can only afford to go during "restaurant week" for a prix-fixe lunch or dinner. The rest of the time, who can afford Beluga caviar at $150/oz.? Not I with my incredible shrinking 401K plan!
