LIVE THREAD: French Riots
April 4, 2006 | FR

Posted on 04/04/2006 10:33:28 AM PDT by Peach

Post your observations here.

Richard Miniter was on FNC and said that even if an employee is caught on videotape stealing from their employers, they cannot be fired.

The "R" word is being used?
Riots, not merely unrest or protests?

On another thread I said it was amazing to watch the French destruct, like a soap opera.

You know something bad is going to happen, and it is their own fault, but everyone in the show is so stupid it can't be stopped.

R word has been used. LOL

The French have clearly addled their brains with wine; not being able to fire an employee caught stealing? Stupid.

I was half listening as I was exercising but thought I heard Miniter say that there is information that Muslim immigrants are fueling this. That's not to say the "youths" wouldn't riot on their own, but fuel is being added to the fire by Muslims.

Regarding that month long holiday, someone on MSNBC said that the paid holiday leave is the next issue that will be addressed by political leaders and they expected more of the same rioting at that time.

Here our Locals call that part of their contract - incentives and just wait until the potholes reappear and get a new road construction contract.

The appeasement being practiced by the French is the role model for our own Senate re recent "demonstrations" here.

I'm hoping these morons stick to Tuesdays to have their get-togethers. I'm arriving in Paris on Wednesday, April 26th and staying until Saturday afternoon, then heading to London. I'll be on a whole day tour on Thursday to Normandy, and on Friday, I'll be visiting The Louvre all day, atmosphere permitting.

Has anybody asked why Tuesdays have been chosen as their protest day? Why not any other day? Why not every day? Obviously they don't need their jobs all that much if they can decide to take one day off a week to gather on the green and riot. They really haven't ingratiated themselves to anyone, and by committing arson and other destructive damage to area businesses, they are only hurting the people who employ them.

They are ripping out metal signposts and then using them in groups like jackhammers to break up the concrete and stone for more throwing missles.

They won't like losing that perk, lots of milling around and a few scuffles, wait until dusk they'll start torching.

Fox to split screen, something Nascar needs to go to much more :-).

Dayside is discussing Delay with Kasich,, and Riots are on a larger window on the right.
