1. Sam I donít understand why you would get offended when I use Slav to indentify you.

    You are a Slav.

    For sure you are not a Greek.
    (Azir, 25 January 2018 14:01)

    Anything wrong with being a Slav, a Greek, a Jew or a Buddhist?

    Please elaborate.

    Maybe the worst thing is to have a psychopath boss.

    Maybe you have no problems with all above, Serbs included.

    Maybe you have problem - and it's real - that your (Albanian, Serbian, American, German, Russian) boss is a psychopath.

    That is normal. About 20% of the bosses are psycho. Except America - where that number is quite close to 100%. The reasons are not ethnic, they are cultural.

    A psychopath boss will destroy your personal, sexual, family life as well as your finances.

    Again, if you live in the U.S. the chances that your boss is a psycho are well above 50%.

    Just FYI.

  2. Switzerland is one country, with four different official languages! They don't have a problem!
    (the truth, 23 January 2018 16:39)

    There is one country quite larger and quite stronger than Switzerland.
    True, they have per-capita GDP (quite) lower - but in "exchange" they can destroy the entire Earth and probably the Moon - with one single push of a red knob.

    Not that they would ever want... but at least they can.

    Anyway, they even do not have the number of "recognized" languages or ethnic entities being set.

    You can declare that your native language is of Naboo and you belong ethnically to (Jedi, Zombies, Albanians, Zulus, Jews, Catholics, Gays, Lesbians). It's OK.

    You can't declare you being an ethnic "Nazi" or ethnic "Wahabbite" because that thing supposed to endanger the constitution of that country, so these two (and only these two) are banned.

    Guess the country, please. Hint: it's name begins with the letter "R".

    Apropos. The majority in that country understands the Bulgarians and Macedonians "on fly". We do not any major difference between the two "languages". All we know, that "Macedonian" FYROM-maniac thing was invented by Tito.

    You are a Slav.

    For sure you are not a Greek.

    Go to Greece 🇬🇷 and talk to its inhabitants in The real Macedonia. You would need a translator since they donít speak an ethnic Bulgaria dialect.
    Read their newspapers you would not understand it because its a foreign language to you.

    If Iím not mistaken a former PM or President once confessed how this identity issue has fooled some but not all.

    Donít fear the truth .

    We are proud ethnic Albanians 🇦🇱and and you ought to be proud ethnic Bulgarians 🇧🇬 .

    Go to Bulgaria you will fit right in.
    They will understand you and see the similarities.
    Meet old relatives share commen language,culture , history,foods,dress,manners etc

    Donít hate me for breaking the bad news to you.

    If you were on this side of the fence and have been born Albanian in Macedonia would you not say what I say?

    What part of equality doesnít Macedonia 🇲🇰 not get?

    If Macedonia was a company and its population shares ...then Albanian Indigenous investors 🇦🇱 would hold anywhere between 35-40% .Would you not agree a Census that is current be fair?
    Wouldnít you agree we are a major share holder?

    Why not implement what you agreeed to 17 years ago?

    I support Macedonian-Albanians being an integral part of Macedonian Society but it takes a little giving back now
    I can tell you I am sick of this debate it is mute for me really it is

    There isnít a Country on this great Green Earth were a minority have as much civil rights and are almost begged to integrate in Society as they do in Macedonia

    This way the ethnic Bulgarian Slavs have more money 💰 to waste on stolen Greek history and statues ha ha ...

    The US has its Census every ten years and they have over 300 million with no problems.

    Macedonia has just 2 million and itís better if itís done every 5 years .

    The truth is beneficial to everyone including the indigenous Shqiptares natives.

    I suppose if you plan on continued under representing the native indigenous inhabitant Shqiptares then that might be a problem for you.

    Equality and respect is needed in any relationship and Macedoniaís 2 million 🇲🇰 Doesnít have many major races other than the ethic Bulgarians and ethnic Albanians.

    Facts you must not fear...
    Macedonia has money for Greek statues they will find the funds for this census.
    Albanians also pay TAXES.

  10. The Greeks are staging massive protests over how a neighboring country wants to name itself because one of Greeceís provinces has the same name. This experiment in stupidity is polarizing Greek society. Meanwhile, the international banking cabals are destroying Greeceís economy while theyíre busy protesting over how a neighboring country, which will probably not exist in 10 years, wants to name itself.

  13. Help me understand. Albanian is already an official language in areas were Albanians make up more than >20% of the population (e.g. Tetovo, Gostivar, Debar, struga, Kumanovo and Skopje). Why is it so important to make Albanian language official (i.e. change street signs, make hospitals, schools and government buildings, police cars and so on include Albanian text and be able to speak Albanian) in areas that have no Albanian population like Veles, Stip Prielp, Bitola and Strumica?
    (Information, 24 January 2018 01:41)

  14. The proposed language legislation is in breach of both the countryís Constitution and the 2001 Ohrid framework agreement.

    Any changes to the constitution requires 75% of parliamentarians to agree on the change, the current language bill only has 52%.

    Also the 2001 Ohrid framework agreement requires any changes to minority rights require 70% agreement of all individual ethnic groups to avoid any possible future majority government watering down the 2001 agreements, so in this instance we have 100% agreement from the Albanian members of parliament but only 43% agreement from ethnic Macedonian members of parliament.

  15. @azir,

    these are some pretty hefty demands.

    internationals doing the work for macedonia. i wonder who would be paying these internationals. would they do it out of the goodness of their hearts?
    if not, would not those that pay have a direct line in to corruption?

    secondly, why not do the census when its done. are not others traveling during the summer months? why isolate it so that it only benefits the albanian minority?

    fundamentally, if you don't trust the government institutions of macedonia, and you live there, perhaps you need to re-evaluate things, and make proactive steps. if however you are an outsider perhaps its less of your business than you think it is.

    like serbs had the option to leave kosovo, why not give that same option to albanians not in albanaia? why the double standard? something concrete, not some illusory allegories of historical mumbo-jumbo... why not suggest to albanians what you willing offer to non-albanians at this point in time?

    We supported and demand an international census conducted and monitored by non slavs.

    And this Census must not be conducted during the summer season when Albanians travel as seasonal workers in neighboring countries to earn a living since the fake ďMacedonia ď regime has a policy of institutionalized discrimination against native indigenous Albanians 🇦🇱 .

    We never fear the CENSUS TRUTH and neither should you!

  19. who are these so called "majority indigenous Albanians"?

    latest census (though old) has people who consider themselves as macedonia to be near 2/3, and those considering themselves albanian at around 1/4.

    those numbers do no reflect a majority.
    further, albanian presence does not imply indigenous.

    perhaps there's been a massive demographic change, but then one would need to wonder what causes such an unprecedented change in demographics other than migration (thus no indigenous)
    (iron knee, 23 January 2018 17:30)

    Do you really trust Slavo-Bulgars? If they can steal their country's name from their neighbor they can do anything. Don't you find it funny that Albanians seem to always be 1/4 of the population, even though, Albanians have the highest number of population increase?

  30. Macedonia is developed as Serbia as gdp per capita because of the Albanians

    Albanians are good in develop the things , they overtook Ukraine for example

    the problem is that they started from a very low level

    Romanians and Albanians are better than South Slavs Serbia and Bulgaria in develop economy , Romania started from a higher level than Albania

    Serbia and Bulgaria were very advanced in 1989 comparing with Romania and Albania

    See how many times was better Bulgaria than Albania in 1990 and compare again in 2020 .

    I think even Kosovo will get better
