That was not at all what I said. Why would I think Poland sucks? Comment 38 said you have low incomes.
Of course the economy is in a bad way, Poland had decades of Communist rule. It will take a long time to recover.
That is no criticism of the Poles. You were conquered by the Russians, who wanted a buffer zone to protect them from future German attacks.
The Poles are well known to be extremely brave fighters, but a country without mountains or sea around it is impossible to defend against invasion by a bigger country.
Nor was it possible for the Americans and British to turn around and attack the Russians in 1945. We did well to save Austria, most of Germany, Greece and Malaya from Communism. France was at risk too.
