"....three million people took to the streets..."

Expect this same (or worse) scenario here if we don't expel all illegals immediately.

French Students Take to Streets Over New Employment Law

A new law aimed at reducing youth unemployment (currently 23 percent) by making it easier to hire and fire young workers has sparked an outcry of opposition from the intended beneficiaries. As many as 1.5 million people participated in street demonstrations to protest the “First Job Contract” law passed by Parliament.

Jacques Esse, one of the students leading the protest, denounced the law. “They are trying to take away our leisure and force us into boring jobs,” said Esse. “We need money, not excessive demands on our time.”

Esse contends that forcing young people into the workforce will have anti-democratic impacts. “Who will march in the streets to protest bad laws if everyone has jobs?” asked Esse.

Esse demanded that the government save his generation from a life of meaningless toil. “Our time and our minds should be free to create the new ideas needed for a new millennium,” said Esse. Esse proposed that corporations and the rich be taxed to provide stipends for young intellectuals like himself.

Asked what new ideas for a new millennium he has, Esse responded that his proposed stipends for young intellectuals was just the first of many he was sure would be forthcoming if he isn’t bogged down by a dead-end job and has the time to work on them.

Let me see, a boatload of French muslim kids riot and burn thousands of cars. Then they get the ol' Cartoon Protest riots. Now they get the "What? No guaranteed jobs???" riots.

While I don't subscribe the the "broken window" economic theory, there should be plenty of short-term post-riot cleanup jobs available, right?

The more they have, the more they want. Ingrates.

It will happen here if President Bush doesn't get serious about illegal immigrants.

***Responsible Americans can help prevent this movement in America by volunteering for or starting Literacy programs in their community.***

Volunteering to teach English provides an opportunity to teach about America at the same time. It is the parents of these youth or need to assimilate. If they can communicate with teachers and community leaders, then there is a better chance that they can undo the harm that public schools are doing to their children.
