The progressive Democrats and their enabling unions that have hijacked the U.S. local, state and federal government are no different than the socialist French. At some point, something has to give because their demands are unreasonable, unsustainable and unaffordable.

The French are useless eaters.
I like their movies, writers, painters, cooks, philosophers...but really, their politics have s*cked at least since the time of Napoleon. The guillotine may be their only and finest contribution to the political arena.

They don't look lazy to me. The war in Iraq put us into a huge deficit and it's still not over. Most of us still have our fat American asses on the couch watching the view or reruns of Jersey Shore. From the photos, they are looking pretty slim and athletic.

Let's see--there's the internet, the library, and bookstores to consult before posting something like that. Next time you'll know better. This is why using multiple screen names is so handy. If you write something like that you can just abandon that handle and continue on your way unscathed but wiser and full of resolve to check your facts more closely in the future.

Socialism was the cancer of the world during the 20th century.
It tried vainly to replace individual responsability by a notion of 'universal help' from the all powerfull state, and killed millions in the process of imposing the doctrine.

It seems that it hasn't been fully cured yet.
It's a breeding ground for dependency, lazyness and anarchy.

The French are simply fighting to maintain the decent life they have been able to achieve for themselves over the last 200+ years. We could learn a lesson from them, the Greeks, the Icelanders, etc. A robust social safety net is not a bad thing. I can't believe how many people in this thread and elsewhere are expressing so much of the pro-Corporate, pro-Wall St., and pro-banker propaganda. All of you Glenn Beck supporters have been brainwashed into thinking that holding crooked Wall St. banksters accountable for their massive, economy-destroying gambling debts that WE payed for is somehow "socialism." Half of Wall St. should be in jail. Using tax money to help poor people out in times of need is not Marxist -- it's Christian. Recall that the only recorded act of violence in the life of Jesus was his outburst against the moneychangers -- the bankers.

Vive le France!!

Good thing you don't have children or a family you care about. You wouldn't be so quick to toss them under the bus by voting to enslave them by voting for Gov't Empl. Unioncrats like Brown, Boxer, or Richardson.

I agree with your sentiment but must remind you that all those countries you mentioned are bankrupt. The bankers and Wall Street have given far more to Democrats than to Republicans. Look it up. It's common knowledge. I make my living in the stock market and pay close attention to these things. In return for the 'donations' to Democrats like Barney Frank and Chris Dodd these bankers got a mandate to sell houses to anybody with (and possibly without) a pulse. Then they got a bailout from Democrats after Obama took power--a bailout that far exceeded the Bush money. You're being fooled by the Left. In order to fund all the social network programs we must have a functioning, solvent country. Vote for Conservatives and not necessarily Republicans. There are even a few responsible Democrats to vote for--but not many. Obama MUST be neutered in order to save this country which is why any Democrat in Congress is a minus.
