    Looks like another populist win against the one world order freaks. Sorry Soros, the French aren't stupid like the Greeks - but then again unlike Greece, Turkey isn't breathing heavily over them.

    Anyway it looks like another French Revolution to me. The people are fed up with their cost of living going up, and a 'reign' that seems isolated from the problems. Hmmm, reminds me of Louis XVI. (Things never change do they?)

    The corporate MSM's have tried to present the protesters as 'ruffians' and extremists but it ain't working. See, the French are not stupid like us.

    Right now 80% of the people of France support the protests, and only 20% back Macron and his one world order freaks, so he buckled. Let's face it, he want's to hold on to his head. Besides, the terrorists have started to infiltrate the protests, so he had to do something.

    France should cut taxes to the bone. Taking money out of the peoples pockets (taxes)
    always harms the economy. The government needs less money. Make that
    ALL governments need less money.

    French Revolution #2

    The Yellow Vests are not happy with the crumbs Macron is throwing them. They want the baguette. I came across a list of over 30 demands, but I can't locate it.

    Warnings have been sent out to the people in France that everything will close on Dec. 10: Schools, airports, stores, government services, office buildings, etc. and to stock up on food and medicine. Why do I sense that there are now dark forces involved - maybe terrorists?

    In the meantime in Marseille an elderly 80 year old Algerian women looked out her window to see what was going on, and she was tear gassed by the police and died. Thousands of Algerians, Tunisians and Morrocans will be protesting.

    The problem is that it is so easy for one generation of people to create incredibly expensive things, be they civy or military.

    The bigger problem is that it is almost impossible for the next generation to get rid of it ....

    It doesn't look as if the protests will subside, but only get worse. They say there are no leaders in this movement, which sounds highly unusual? It reminds me of Maidan without the catapults and drums.

    He thinks Washington is behind it - maybe to get rid of Macron? Maybe, maybe not?

    Oh then $6 for gas when one earns $1,600 a month is not the reason, it's Russia.

    Oh well, you're not alone. According to the Ukraine Security Services the Russians donned yellow vests so they could to destroy Europe.

    What are you, a liberal one world order freak?:roflol:

    W hat the protests in France are and what they are not:

    1 - They are apolitical, and not associated with either left or right.
    2 - They are a spontaneous grassroots movement.
    3 - They are against global capitalism.
    4 - They are not a national movement.
    5 - They are not against immigration or racist.
    6 - They are against unfair taxation.
    7 - They want to reinstall the tax on the rich.
    8 - They want a minimum wage and retirement wage of 1,300 euros a month.
    9 - They are against neo liberalism and the world wide system of wealth and power in the hands of a few.

    True, but in reality, the Democrats of the 20th century have shown us that big
    government creates big problems and solves none. From Wilson to the previous
    president they have all shown us that higher taxes and more government is
    always a recipe for failure. There is no evidence to the contrary.
