18th February


My breakfast today :)
Good morning! Today, for the first time in my life, I will vote! The thing is that after the war, there is still a big percentage of russians in Latvia, and during the last year, they somehow got the stupid idea that they need to make russian the second official language in Latvia. They collected all the signatures in order to make a referendum to vote YES or NO for russian as the second official language. First of all, it's a completely absurd idea. It's 2012, HELLO?! Why try to take over a country again?! The latvian language is in no way similar to russian language, they are two completely different cultures. It's predicted that the russian language probably won't go through as an official language, but only IF ALL the latvians get their asses up and vote against it! Otherwise all the russians will vote YES, and the latvians will just stay home (it's a latvian thing, not to go to vote, because they think it won't change anything anyway - typical to the old generation in Latvia). Me and my family are going to vote today, because they've also given us the opportunity in Luxembourg. I really hope all the latvians that read my blog and are over 18 will vote. Otherwise you suck! :D Bye.

    Prieks, ka latvieši, kas dzīvo ārzemēs neaizmirst tomēr par dzimto zemi.:):):)

  3. Pilnībā piekrītu Tev- šis referendums ir pilnīgs stulbums. Bet ir prieks, ka arī latvieši ārzemēs dodas balsot! :)

  4. I seriously do hate russians (I'm from Lithuania, btw). I hate that they live here and do feel like living in russia. they don't even try to speek lithuanian and even are mad on us that we don't speek russian. thank God, there's no such consideration about making russian second official language. maybe because the most of lithuanians don't speek russian just because they don't like russians living here. anyway, good luck with the voting, hope most of latvians will vote negatively. :)

  5. That is absurd! I'eheard some talk about Russsianbecoming asecond language in Estonia too and if it is ever going to happen I will fight against it!!!
    Latvia does not need a second official language,because it is an independent country!

  6. Hey!
    Gribēju tikai piebilst, ka šajā referendumā ir matemātiski neiespējami, ka "krievu aktivitāte" panāks vēlamo. Jo referendumā "par" jānobalso 51% balstiesīgo - nevis balsotāju :)
    Un liela daļa krievu valodā runājošo tomēr ir nepilsoņu, kas attiecīgi nevar balsot :)
