The French are on their knees again. Begging for money and hoping that Americans will raise their retirement age to 67 while the workers in Europe take our money from the IMF to fund their citizens who retire at age 45 and only work part of the year. This is going to create a huge problem when Americans get hip to what is really going on.

The average Greek retirement age is 53. Many retire much earlier. And they do not work a full year. It is much less than 45 years collectively speaking. It is the Greek debt that the French foolishly bought up. It is socialism that has ruined Europe's economy. Exactly what is a Paul Puffer. Adolescent language still baffles me.

rather than generalizing on poor people's hard jobs and hard times let's generalize about the rich bankers' debts towards us people.

France will be on her knees for so long, I doubt the grand old lady will ever get up again. We can only support the socialist's fantasy lifestyle for so long and then it's curtains. How many times do we have to save a failed and cowardly socialist regime such as France.

And when exactly did we do that??

If you're referring to Hitler and World War II, how does that make France "socialist" or "cowardly?"

Not resisting Hitler was the wise move after what happened to Poland, and it kept Paris, and France from being obliterated.

"In 1992, President George H.W. Bush signed the Housing and Community Development Act of 1992. The Act amended the charter of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to reflect Congress' view that the GSEs "have an affirmative obligation to facilitate the financing of affordable housing for low-income and moderate-income families."[14] For the first time, the GSEs were required to meet "affordable housing goals" set annually by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and approved by Congress. The initial annual goal for low-income and moderate-income mortgage purchases for each GSE was 30% of the total number of dwelling units financed by mortgage purchases[15] and increased to 55% by 2007."

More rebuking of the conservative Reich from the people of France.
Sarkozy was a failed experiment in "American style" corporate fascism, which went over like a fart in church.
France, and all nations of Europe do so much better under socialism, as we would here, if we could brink down the corporate behemoths and return to representative government, which we no longer have, sadly.
