    Oh I think France will survive.

    The French electorate are much more demonstative than the Americans.

    It doesn't take all that much before the French are willing to show their displeasure with their government by mass strikes and rioting.

    The USA might be better off if we emulated the French people's contempt for the government in that respect.

    But we don't have a history of cutting the heads off bad government officials like the French, so we're not as apt to take to the streets as they are.

    We think our guns will protect us from bad government.

    The French make due with cobblestones they dig up from the streets.

    Love the hysterically desperate attempt to link violent protests (like those going on in France) to the TEA Party. Let me know when you can provide one single shred of evidence that TEA Partiers have burned cars, trashed buildings, clashed with LEOs, etc.

    I'll wait.

    I don't think they're being stiched up. I think they're just being stupid, aren't they?

    I don't even think most of them know what they're protesting about.

    They were given three options to collect enough pension money to pay OAPs - either to reduce pensions, increase contributions, or to work for longer. Even the Unions recognised that the money had to come from somewhere. The problem is that none of them could decide which was the preferred solution.

    Since the French couldn't get a majority agreement on any of the three options, they unanimously opted for Plan D, which mostly involved doing fuck all for days on end and bringing the country to a standstill, which is precisely what got them into this mess.

    Most of the action is now being fronted by students anyway, who mainly protest because it's a sexual ritual.

    So, when you focus on the details, you realise that they're not the brightest people in the world.
