    The French Suck...

    Trudeau has no brain to begin with, so a guillotine would be pointless.

    I'd much rather see him bounce up and down with his rainbow socks sticking out.

    Maybe he could also wear the get up he wore in India, when even the Indians were mocking him.

    In any case, I'm looking forward to Dave's outdoor gear. I think that is totally cool.

    Oh also.....the French invented the fine art of surrendering without even putting up a fight.

    Napoleon doesn't count because he was Corsican.

    A stupid myth, the French suffered twice as many battle deaths in six weeks than Canada did the entire war. BTW, your country associated with Britain, was also there for that military disaster. So you can't just blame the frogs...

    The French have been pussies throughout history.

    However, I do admire the Yellow Vest movement. It's about fucking time.

    We should ALL overthrow our corrupt governments. It's about to take hold in Belgium.


    Canadians need to wake up. We bitch a lot, but never do anything about it as a populace.

    Fuck the fake refugees. They should stay where they belong/. The Islamic invasion is going to destroy all of us.

    Nationalism all the way. Preserve your culture and prevent the Islamic invasion.

    And no...the Yellow Vests is not about fuel taxes. That was just the straw that broke you know what.

    Sounds like somebody's been watching the Gavin McAnus propaganda up there in the Great White North.

    I'll react to this crap when I have enough time.

    Basically, the less you've traveled, the less you've thought, the less you know, the more convicted you are on topics you have no idea what they're about.

    Well, for one thing we should never forget that the French knew the proper way to deal with the elitist inheritance leech shitbags whom FDR referred to as "economic royalists"....

    Well, the French capitulated in 1940 for two main reasons, first Daladier and his government had weakened the army and underestimated the nazi threat, and secondly the German forces were way more powerful and equipped than the French ones which, considering how non-prepared as they were, was like for the Frogs to stand still on a beach before a tsunami - BTW, how easily the Wehrmacht trampled on the Dutch and Belgians (Belgium having a common border with the north of Frogland, if you take a look at a map of Europe),robbed the Sudeten from the Czechs and make the Poles bends (pun intended)...
    Frogs have always been grateful to the soldiers who put themselves in danger -- quite many of them military trained civilians, leaving their families behind, among whom too many didn't get back or did with bad injuries and/or their minds upside-down -- from the USA, Canada, England, Scotland, Wales, Ulster, Australia, New Zealand... Fortunately their countries were too far for the nazis to reach and they could prepare the saving intervention. In perspective, stopping the German and Japanese armies was also an emergency for their own lands.

    I just can't see a second time when the French are supposed to have given up without fighting.

    I could tell about my family stories about Resistance once again, but I'd rather not. It's easy to claim this or that or raise controversy about historical facts and argue by proxy.
    Just as easy as stating that Americans are like this or that, or the Japanese, Canadians, the French, Spaniards... How wise and enlightened a man, the one can seriously consider himself as able to judge a whole nation as brave or cowardly, or whatever...

    As for the "yellow vests", as far as I've been able to notice, they started acting when the government decided to raise the price of petrol (gasoline) once again. 65% of the price are taxes.
    When I had to stop at a roundabout, I sometimes had a talk with them. I told them I found it debatable that they'd started because of that, because I'm as opposed to that fucking stick-in-the-ass government, who had already enacted foul, unfair laws that would have deserved way more... And they answered that it was just "the last straw". Meh...

    Roughly, about one third of the "yellow vests" are far-right nerds, another third are extreme left-wing hotheads, and the rest are poujadists.
    Mainly, none of them can really give a well-spoken speech. But...

    But they managed to get measures from that government that quickly wilted: they gave up on the new upcoming rises of the price of petrol/gasoline and decided to raise the minimum wages by €100, most importantly.
    That will trigger more protest from other layers of society, those who earn a little more... Policemen have recently started a strike, and knowing how stinking the coming reforms in education are, teachers will probably react as well, as their wages have been frozen since 2010.
    I remember speaking with Greek teachers whose wages had been divided by 2 in 2012, and well, the situation isn't that bad here in comparison.

    The yellow vest movement has started to wane. But seeing how Macron, that jerk, gave up and announced a few strategic measures to shut them up, other actions should take place in the coming months.

    Just to bring a little factoid to the French surrender cliche crap.

    Although a much smaller country France had more military fatalities in World War One alone than the total losses in the history of the US including the Revolutionary War, US Civil War, WW1, WWII, Vietnam and all the rest.
