Imagine how idiotic the “students” and “children” have to be not to understand that by the time they get old enough, they won’t have anything left after taxes.
Oh but they’ve only lived in the era of instant and permanent gratification where you just borrow the money to buy the latest gadget, bigger house, new car, etc.

That is so old fashioned. lol
Partie de the!! en francais!
Won’t be long before we see union workers here do the same.
We are DEVO.
Wow people, this could be a huge story if the protests continue. Think about it, this is like a demonstration in the USA involving 10 million people.
What’s even more important is this is just the beginning of this kind of unrest worldwide. Things are not going to be pretty over the next 7-10 years.
