France Folds – Will The US?
America should not bow to mob rule. It is NOT Democracy. The reality is that there are far more Americans who would prefer some reasonable but serious changes made on immigration policy and processes. The trouble is, most of them will be at work while some others are marching around.
I didn’t realize being an illegal alien came with such great job security. Has anyone stopped to wonder how so many of these people can manage that?
They aren’t even all that representative of many hard working immigrants here holding down regular jobs. If they were, they wouldn’t be holding them down today, now would they? Will the MSM care to answer us that? I doubt it.
Witness this. The French government knows it needs employment reform to better compete for business in a global marketplace. Would you hire a 20 – 26 year old if you knew you basically had to employ them for life? Would you hire anyone under such circumstances? Could you afford to?
So much for the glories of the socialist state. The protesters will only want more government services over time, but they aren’t willing to take responsibility for earning their way over the long haul. They want that guaranteed. Imagine an America where every industry was run with the efficiency and management practices of our government bureaucracy. The world’s leading economy, ours, wouldn’t be nearly as vigorus and resilient as it is and every hard working person would ultimately suffer.
Instead of the harder you work, the more you get – it becomes foolish to work any longer or harder than the average. So every effort becomes watered down. There’s no incentive for an individual to do anything else but be average.
Many Liberals and Dems wouldn’t mind going there with the US in the end. It’s absolutely in line with what the far left preaches. Everything for everyone, with noone but government accountable to pick up the cost. It’s a dream state that doesn’t offer genuine individuals anything; it seeks to make everyone simply part of a mass.
Be mindful of the immigration rallies which will be taking place. The MSM may give us one picture, but the Far Left won’t be far behind. In many cases they are marching right out in front. via Malkin
And as for France, well, so much for
enlightened cowardly Jacques Chirac and Dominique de Villepin. Here and below.
PARIS (Reuters) – French President Jacques Chirac scrapped a youth job law on Monday after weeks of angry unrest, in a climbdown that undermined his prime minister and handed protesters victory.
Chirac’s decision was a personal blow to Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin, who had championed the First Job Contract (CPE) as a vital job-creating reform of the French economy but had seen his popularity slump as mass opposition grew.
The government U-turn over the CPE makes it unlikely France will attempt broader reform of its highly-regulated labour market before 2007, some economists said.

By all means, let the protests go on! Soon perhaps, France can achieve the perfect
dead-end societysocialist paradise

Besides the rioting and torchings, the students raided the Sorbonne and destroyed several of the ancient and rare books from the library.
