    Unions try to shut down France over pensions - World news - Europe - msnbc.com

    By GREG KELLER

    PARIS — Workers tried to shut down France on Tuesday with strikes affecting airports, public transportation, schools and the postal service in a showdown with President Nicolas Sarkozy over his government's attempt to raise the retirement age by two years to save money.

    Socialism is a great idea till you run out of other peoples money. Margaret Thatcher

    Ask me why I'm a conservative that tells people socialism will crush the economy.

    Cuba
    Russia
    Greece
    Spain
    England
    France

    Who's next? And why do Democrats want to do the same things these countries did?

    France is an open-air museum, clinging to ideals of the past.

    That's what I don't get!!

    Ok, he's doing the same thing that flopped in the Great Depression. BUT, things are different now and it may have worked. And school tought us all the FDR walked on water.

    But today, TODAY, you can see socialism failing. Greeks are burning Greece, there are riots all over the EU. Why? B/c the goverments are out of money.

    Unless you want to kill your own economy you would not copy this.

    So why does it seem that he and the libs want to destroy the economy?
