Yahoo article

Just saw this on Yahoo...

http://news.yahoo.com/s/chitribts/20...forfrancessoul
The following are quotes from the story:

"Such are the depths of Francois Vincent's disdain for the new European constitution that he recently uttered words that have not passed the lips of many Frenchmen.

"I would rather be an American than a European," said Vincent, 63, who owns a vegetable stall in one of Paris' open-air markets. "At least Americans love their country.""

I wouldn't worry, you froggy SOB. I'm sure we can find another supply of smelly, pastry making cowards!!



" Chirac's center-right government , the opposition Socialist Party and most of the French political and intellectual establishment support the new constitution, arguing that a "no" vote will cripple the European project and cost France its place at the very heart of Europe."

Center-Right? Only if you think Slick Willy was an extreme right winger!

Mark

ps…can any of you guys figure out which party I belong to?

Re: Yahoo article

I think you belong to the party next door that's getting busted up by the Police.

["People are not voting against Europe. They are voting against a constitution . . . that has 448 articles and is completely incomprehensible to them," said Jean-Pierre Chevenement, a former Socialist defense minister and leader of a breakaway faction that opposes the constitution.]

How could the average Joe know what he's getting his country into? How many articles does our US constitution have? How do the French know it will be good for them? WHO CARES about the French. I prefer Italian pastry anyway.

Im not a leftist, by any meaning of the word, and I dont fall into the conspiracy nor religous right; but you do have to watch yourself. Do you know you cant absolve yourself of all your debt in this country anymore? See the current congressional decissions with regards to bankrupcy laws. Find out how in debt the average American is. And tell me its OK to let major corporations influence the legislature through PAC's and election contributions.

What are your thoughts??///???/?
