IMO the French are ignorant about how socialism draws upon the wealth of the nation to support socialism.
You are correct.

Most LIBs are ignorant about socialism, or they choose to ignore the fact that CAPITALISM fuels their immoral schemes. Without the wealth generated by Free Enterprise and Individual Liberty, socialists would have no assets or labor to steal.

Yes, but she can't run. She's only 29 years old. She also wants to tax the highest income earners at 70%, and admits her socialist affiliation.

If stupid could fly, she would be a jet.

Her name is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I call her Oc-Co Loco.

Violence broke out on the streets of Paris today as anti riot police confronted a mass of French yellow vest protesters on the 13th consecutive weekend of demonstrations.

Tear gas and baton charges were used around the Champs Elysee, after demonstrators threw stones at officers and vandals tried to smash shop windows.

Shocking footage shows protesters gathering around a man whose hand appears to have been ripped off which spurts blood as he cries in pain.

Other grisly scenes show demonstrators trying to topple boards, throwing planks of wood and cornering police as more tear gas is thrown.

Many businesses were shut as the Yellow Vests - who are named after their high visibility jackets - mobilised across the country.

Exactly guys, what use is the mantra 'Redistribution of Wealth' if everyone is skint. Socialism always appeals to the lumpen masses who do not have anything but want everything for free without an idea of how its going to be paid for.

Peaceful demonstrations are one thing, BUT, thugs who are intent on destroying other people's property are another thing and should be punished.

Ahh gay Paree,
The city of love, lights, and romance.
The city whose name conjures images of beautiful people relaxing happily in their refined cafe culture.
The sound of an accordion drifts from picturesque side street lined with unlocked bicycles and fashionable pedestrians.
Smart, cultured people who can discuss anything in the Louvre or the philosophy of John Paul Sartre over an espresso.

Oh wait, never mind.

I had a feeling that Macron would get pushback from the day he was elected. Too willing to throw open the doors and give away the farm.
