Macedonia Stops Sale of Scandalous Encyclopedia
The Macedonian Academy of Science and Art has decided to stop selling the new Macedonian encyclopedia, and to correct the disputed texts, after Bulgaria criticized some of the content in the book.
The Academy expressed concern over the fact that the encyclopedia had caused “fierce controversy” and “unintentionally become a source for new ethnic tensions in Macedonia.” They confirmed that they would correct inaccuracies, especially regarding Albanian minorities, but would keep the historical facts the same.
The Presidency of the Academy also expressed regret for the inappropriate wordings used in some unintentional copyright texts, which have prompted reactions from the UK, US and Bulgarian Embassies in Skopje, Bulgarian National Radio reported.
Macedonia's President, Gjorge Ivanov welcomed the decision by the Academy to withdraw the encyclopedia from sale.
Last Friday the Bulgarian Embassy in Skopje issued a statement, saying that the content of Macedonian Encyclopedia had the single purpose of collecting political dividends.
According to the statement released on Thursday, "it is unacceptable for a country aspirant for NATO and EU membership to resort to terminology typical for the ideology of the Cold War era."
Immediately after its publishing, the Macedonian Encyclopedia raised numerous reactions. The parties of ethnic Albanians living in Macedonia were the first to slam certain content of the publication, and reactions from the UK and US followed shortly after, the news agency Makfax said.

" By the way. Nellie is retired. I'm retired. You seem to be able to post on the forum at all hours of the day and night. I don't believe you have a job at all, let alone an important executive one."
I am retired, but there is a whole shait load of house and garden work waiting for me that I am not doing. lol
WW is on vacation, or maybe she got the flu and is at home recovering, or maybe she is multitasking. I don't see what difference it makes why she is posting.She is, and I am enjoying it.
"Actually, he thinks he's come up with the perfect solution: he doesn't have to think or respond to any valid questions and thinks that if he doesn't respond, that would fool anyone into thinking the questions are not valid."
The only "validity" these questions have is in your own mind. You pose them just to anger.

Actually, he thinks he's come up with the perfect solution: he doesn't have to think or respond to any valid questions and thinks that if he doesn't respond, that would fool anyone into thinking the questions are not valid.
Also, it doesn't appear like his teeny brain can't come up with a reasonable response anymore. But he is still responding so he still "has the last word" even if that's troll-like copy paste.
I pity him sometimes - the king of his tiny little world which, as soon as he pokes his head above the water turns up to be a muddy little ditch.
"And of course you have first hand knowledge of this phenomenon? It is not just hear-say?
If a guy goes to work and then goes to his club to entertain himself, when does he do his chores at home? He would be gone all the time, his kids will not know him"
Point 1: First-hand, no. Experience in a legal assistance office with unhappy husbands, yes. And hearsay is a single word, not hyphenated.
Point 2. Men don't go to their clubs every day, and even then they don't stay all day. My father went once a week, as my mother did to hers. Men go to the club after dinner, usually, so they have all the time between getting home from work till after dinner with the family. Weekends are also family time. My father went to his club on Thursday evenings. The rest of the time he was home.
Women (even not women one is acquainted with, just any women) are apparently the source of all problems in men's lives and this is why men need men's clubs. No women, no problems.
Disregarding logic as to how a woman you don't even met in your day-to-day life can be a nuisance just by her very existence in your proximity, of course...
" I've known for some time that if a husand wants to drive his wife up the wall, all he has to do is lock one of the drawers in his desk. She'll go beserk trying to find out what he's hiding. "

That's the point. In a marriage, neither "controls" the other. It's a partnership. Each has his/her private sphere, and a big source of trouble is jealous wives who want to know EVERYTHING their husbands are doing, leaving him with no privacy.
I've known for some time that if a husand wants to drive his wife up the wall, all he has to do is lock one of the drawers in his desk. She'll go beserk trying to find out what he's hiding.
That's a big reason and justification for men's clubs. Men need a place they can go and leave the office wife, kids, and the associated responsibilites and worries out of life for a while, so they can relax. Women have their own clubs. They don't need to howl "discrimination" over the existence of men's clubs.
" So, you only want to control the ones who oppose you?"
I don't see bill as a controlling kind of guy. If he is so controlling, why hasn't he got someone to control? All really controlling men marry Bulgarian women who are submissive sluts. Viking comes to mind.
