Unions. Just another reason why France may be a third-world country a few years ahead of Amerika.

Where are those union "workers" going to get money when the country's broke? Try to invade other countries?

Don't the French realize that the whole world is having economic difficulties. Maybe they expect too much from the country and aren't being realistic about how much the country can give to them.

Maybe too many "outsiders" are straining their systems, too.

Dummies always blame the unions, but look who is refurbishing his office for 10 million while his company is bankrupt! A union member? Of course not!

I agree but we are all lucky Hitler was stopped. It is the French perspective of France that doesn't let them acknowledge world problems.

The sad and scary part is we are treating radical Islam just like we treated Hitler...we are trying to appease them...we are trying to understand them...we just need to feel their pain...right?
I just hope we don't wait until it is too late before we wake up to the dangers they represent.
Once again, I challenge just one Muslim to try to defend or explain what is being done around the world in the name of Islam...Just one.
