Sounds like a typical limousine Leftist in the mode of Barry and Mootchelle. They’re entitled, doncha know, because they are smarter than everyone else. (And they are smarter than the 51% of morons who voted for them.)

All socialists are Champagne or Dacha socialists.

It’s you and I who get to be poor.

People never learn. The British tried this in the '70's, leading to a massive exodus of productive British citizens, the so-called Brain Drain, many to the Jersey Isles. When the brilliant Parliament saw what was happening, instead of repealing the tax hikes, they expanded the coverage to the Jersey Isles. As expected, the "rich" bailed out and left a void in Britain that still persists today. The only difference here is that I don't care about the French.

This is Hollande’s idea of rejecting austerity. No austerity for him.

What was his campaign slogan, “Let's party until we starve!”?

PM Netanyahu's Remarks at the Start of the Weekly Cabinet Meeting

07/05/2012
Following are Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting today :

CLIP

"I would also like to congratulate French President-elect Francois Hollande. Relations between Israel and France have always been friendly.[my comment might point to "caught off mike" between Obama/Sarkozy] They will remain such and I look forward to meeting with him in order to continue this link, which is important both bilaterally and internationally."

My communist, British uncle, who sent his kids to a Polish Young Pioneers camp for the summer, back in the 1970s, was a labor union big shot.

He retired early, about ten years ago, with 3 years accumulated “sick time,” abandoned his family, and set off for an around-the-world cruise on his yacht with his young girlfriend.

I guarantee you that, in his mind, he did it all for the proletariat.

My father was Polish, and couldn’t bring himself to be in the same place with him. He would skip family events to avoid him. I think he was afraid he’d kill him.

I guess their high speed TGV wasn’t good enough for him.
I wonder who paid for the trip..or was it complements of some rich guy? Probably a Swiss registered plane with unknown owner.

It no longer matters.

It seems once people are 'elected', they ... just ... GET stuff.

And then they get to appoint people that over-ride "the People" and THEY get stuff.

So ..

I believe we're seeing the developement of the system that will allow the structure that will usher in Anti-Christ.

I really can't see beyond that.

You are going to get what you deserve France, and the EU, and I hope we can stop it here. I hope and pray there are enough people with pride in themselves and this Country to stand up to this slide into hell.
