Do the French make anything besides crappy wine and stinking cheese?

Acually, I prefer California, Australian and a few South American wines better.

Sorry, I haven't seen a French product in years (Citreons,Peugot are extremely rare also).

Now, if you would have said, "Don't buy a VW." or boycott stuff made anywhere else - no probs.

Have you seen anything made in the U.S.A. lately (erm - besides political correctness)?

I just tried the Jacob's Creek wines from Australia. Reasonably priced ($8 or so) and not bad...

I will no longer shave my legs, or under my arms. Plus I will not use French deodorant (oops, forgot they don't market it).

The French produce the world's most lingerie.

So, I propose that all American woman not wear lingerie buy French lingerie.

I once had a Renault, but it broke down on me. Amazing how even inert machinery can be imbued with the national character.

I'm on the Atkins diet, I already gave up French Toast and French Fries.

That said, I cannot recall ever seeing a label that said "Made in France."

I would go further than this, frankly. If once the nasty stuff is uncovered ANYTHING is found that was supplied by France (or anyone else for that matter) that was prohibited under the sanctions regime the U.S. should cease ALL trade with the offending nation and require it's allies to do the same. Yes, I mean China too. Will it hurt a bit? Sure, but a lot less than it will hurt the target of the boycot. Now, if WMD are fired at U.S. troops and they were manufactured by the equipment referred to above, I would go beyond sanctions, and actively try to scr*w around the government(s) and companies concerned. The stabbing of the U.S.'s back by supposed allies, who America saved, must stop for good.

Give me a break. Why not start with the Chinese stuff first. It would actually do some good.

The Renault was the Motor Trend Car of The Year in 1982 here in the United States. And who says we have not raised our standards?

No. It was a design some hoped would save the company but it didn't. Studebaker made them for about 2 years before they folded, their dealer in Indiana bought the design and made them till sometime in the mid-80s, and the design has gone back and forth to a couple of private companies since. I believe they've always been assembled in the US, Georgia as we speak.

Wow, I bought a case of that Belgian Monk beer. It comes in wine bottles. You drink one bottle and you are plastered. Good beer too! Something close to a Bass Ale with a depth charge factor.
