I see Dumb People


You would think, wouldnt you, that when the kids from les banlieues for whom this now infamous French law was principally designed, rushed out, bored, jobless and full of Islam - and started beating the crap out of the student protestors that the students would get the message, would you not.

But no - those students, mums, dads and unions think theyve scored a decisive victory. For the peasants no less. LMAO.

So let me tell you:

Vous êtes foutu. Vous n'avez pas compris?

Ils se sont forcément fait une image de vous qui confine plutôt au super-loser, mes amis...


Europe and its leaders in turmoil

We needn't be feeling so smug:

Not Big - Not Clever

Of course until then London, fabulous capital of all things Evil & Anglo Saxon, single handedly propping up the rest of this country and Europe with its Evil Bastions of Capitalism, will continue to be no 1 destination for the same whinging French students opposed to 'casualisation'.

Im all for people who actually want to WORK. Obviously. But its at times like this id like to declare London fully independent and physically hacksaw round the edges, floating us out to sea. Just to prove a goddamn point. Jettisoning Ken Livingstone as we go.

Actually maybe we could just swap him for Sarkozy. I'd be happy with that.


Honestly Chirac, you meatball, bow out graciously now before you give the socialists anymore firepower.

Vive Londres.

When I saw Chirac back down I was not cheering. As much as France disgusts this particular American, I want to see it get out of its deep socialist rut and find some real democracy again. Socialism is not basically compatible with democracy. It has to be tightly controlled and confined, otherwise liberals run amok with it and you end up with messes like France and Britain now have. At least the UK has no such labor law as the one wrecking France.
Socialism is welfare-state-ism. A little welfare to a few deserving is good, an entrenched and expanding largesse, however, will eventually bankrupt any enonomy. The problem with these programs is having administrators who know wnen to stop, and since that always changes with a changing of the guard, then the stops have to be hard-wired into the law. The other alternative always ends up being the utter and total repeal of the entire program.
I hope France gets a handle on things before the nation is lost, but I'm losing hope.

Well - I don't know what you two're sayin' with all yer fancy talk...;-)

Anyhoo - what happened to Sarkozy in all of this? I had it from my Weekly Standard that Chirac and Villepin were pushing him to the forefront to deal with this mess. Be the strong arm and Chirac wasn't going to cave whilst hiding behind him. They get it wrong on Europe (again).

Have a nice visit but I would recommend packing a pistol. Or not I guess - not in Euroland huh? Well - be careful. They're CRAZY there in France. CRAZY I tell ya. LOL!

Where was Sarkozy...I will tell you (live in France) he was keeping his head down, there is an election in a fews months for the Presidency, and he is in with a good chance. Poor Villepin is the fall guy. Went to our French doctor yesterday and he said exactly the same as Alison, the young French go to UK to find work which is under exactly the same system as they have just rejected. Incidentally the students were still 'bouncing around' yesterday albeit in smaller numbers but just to make sure their voice has been heard! The french like to say we send the UK our young people and they send us their old...which is true. France is still a great place to retire to, you don't work so you don't care when they call come out on Strike. Incidentally the Unions only account for 10% of the workers but hold such power! France does, however, choose to maintain the identity of France by insisting Muslims fit in...there is no Cherry Blair to ensure that Muslim girls look like mini version of Darth Vader. When you see classes of 'French' children they all dress the same in the uniform of the day. i.e. jeans! Yes be careful Alison where you walk...inspite of frequent campaigns to ensure that dogs don't mess on the pavement, the French, for the most part ignore the pleas! Awkward people but we love it here...there's no K Livingstone, or jumped up little town counsellors making life a misery for everyone who owns a car, you can park on a crossing and the world doesn't fall to pieces. The place is alive with cars and no room for them so what do they do...congestion charge! no reduce the bus fares to a mere nominal charge. We can only hope the students will get wiser as the economy cracks.

Yeah id second that Maggie. Still rooting for Sark, just angry the idiotic students gave the socialists another look in.

Yes Sarko was keeping his head down all way too messy now. If he gets in next year he'll sort it out. In a way i hope he can/does in a manner which doesnt entirely capitulate to hard nose ruthless free trade.

The police carry guns in Europe Monica, just here they dont. Or do you mean in general, i honestly dont know!

On y va les deux Chas pour profiter des vacances!

No, no, no - I meant YOU need a gun! When you come to America next time to visit, Troll and I will take you down to the range and let you shoot a few rounds. It's very relaxing.

Have a great trip.

If you find yourself running full speed down a dark street, its best to do so with your head down and eyes closed, that way you don't see the brick wall coming and can assume it isn't there.

I getcha. Like it. Thats how I feel if i post a comment at Harrys Place (though for a second there i really thought you were giving me advice on MoH...)

(thats because you wisely steer clear if socialist-infested blogs...you need :) otherwise they go all voodoo ray on you)

Women tend to find me very confusing. I was making an analogy about the Frenchies ignoring the the problems in their economy and how it could hasten a
seemingly unstoppable march towards irrelevance.

 
At Wednesday, 12 April, 2006, Anonymous alison said...

Oh I got it. Blokes dont generally understand me either as it goes. I just meant the analogy stands if you ever visit 'Harrys Place' (a blog trolled by socialists). I often find myself posting a comment and then running full speed, head down, eyes closed...It was a tad cryptic unless youve visited the blog.

I tend to avoid anything involving socialists. Whenever I recomend they redistribute their evil capitalist cash my way they get all huffy. Blokes is a great word, I'm not sure its English but I like it.

Sadly i have to deal with them every day. Oh they like to get huffy. Youd have to be a charity case with a race card to get them to part with any cash. Usually its not theirs though. lol. Blokes is English. Like coloUr and honoUr and, ermmm, favoUrite.

Just to follow up on the original 'dont be smug' point...

My new partner and I are now both working, after I was an official single parent for a few years. The total difference in our disposable income between both of us doing nothing and us now working 30 and 20 hours for me/her respectively is a grand total of £75. That's it. £75 pounds a week more in our hands for working 50 hours between us. And we wonder why people would rather sit at home?!?!?
