Is Paris Burning? (does anyone care?)

Are they still rioting over in Frogville?
In my usual ugly, ig'nert American way I'm hard pressed to garner any sympathy for their cause. There's too much of a gap in the mindset. Eurosocialists vs. average Joe North American. I admit I don't know all the little details other than what the MSM is saying, but it's a curious cause to get my noggin around. Since when are you "entitled" to keep a job? Where I came from, you either did a job well or you got canned--period, regardless of age. Of course I was one of those foolish Americans who actually took jobs that I've been told we're not suppose to want to do. But I didn't know that at the time. Stupid me!

Maybe I'm oversimplifying it, but has it ever occured to these angry 'youts' across the Pond that if they strived to be an asset to their employers, the threat of being fired wouldn't be so great? For the most part, it's quite simple: Show up on time, do your assigned tasks in a reasonable manner and as best you can, play nice with the other employees, don't whine about getting time off, (at least not right away) and just put in a little effort other than being a warm blob of molecules filling a space.

It seems that these punks are indeed putting forth a great effort to make their complaint known, maybe if they'd channel that angst into striving to better themselves in the workplace and make themselves valuable to their employers they wouldn't need to run amok in the streets.
But that's just me and my ig'nert, uninformed opinion. Socialism is a fuggered up concept anyway that saps the ambition out of a we are clearly seeing there in France.

I'm loving this. Just when you thought that you couldn't have more contempt for the French they come along and show you that you haven't scratched the surface.

I eagerly await the reports of human sacrifice and cannibalism.

I am just a wee bit concerned about the rampant stupidity over there right now, cuz a sweet little teenage gal from our church is going over there with a group of other Christian teens in a few weeks.
She's 100% pure hillbilly and never been much more than 50 miles away from home.
OY! Is she gonna get an education quick.

Nail on head. I lived in Europe for 8 years and have a son in England. His mother raised him to be a commie and sadly he and I might as well be living on different planets.

Well if she is a true hillbilly she can shoot the wine glass out of a frog's hand at 100 yards with a deer rifle so I wouldn't worry too much.

PS. If she can't find a deer rifle one of the assault rifles from a dead French riot policeman will do just as well.
