Yes but to explain my point of view : I don't think there will be a civil war (it was a provocation from me -sorry for my horrible english-)but I think it's highly probable to see riots in suburbs very soon and people in the streets too after his first measures.... let's see

Oh! for fuck sakes!
the guy is for fiscal reform and budget restraints and you call him a bushy??
The only civil war that could happen is that the extremist (both right and left) go into the streets and make noise. But in my opinion it is time France got out from underneath all this extremism shit. I mean really what other country has an election with 5 trotsky candidates and two little hitlers...?
Sarkozy won fair and square with direct talk. Not all wishy washy like ms. Royal. Of course she was only doing what the socialist party does best....try to keep the status quo going for as long as possible.

Wait and see.

Of course as always, the French will nodought elect a socialist government in june so as to hogtie the whole fucking system and not change a thing.

Cival war !!! Let's all breath a sigh of relief here.....PHEWWWW!

yes please go back :twisted:
I don't want to argue with bushy zappa fans because I don't speak english well enough and I probably would make mistakes.
I want to say 2 things : my sentence about civil war was obviously a provocation, "2nd degree". France is a very quiet place almost everywhere except in the suburbs. Who built these surburbs ? the "spiritual" fathers of Sarko to put all the poor workers far from the city centers ?
The 2nd thing is : oh you well resume the Sarko program ! You forgot all the others ideas very hard for poor people.....
but It's too hard for me to explain my ideas in english so if there is a french agree with me and better in english.....

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose...

or you may prefer:

"The girls is all salty
The boys is all sweet
The food ain't too shabby,
An' they piss in the street
In France
Way down in France
Way on down...
Way on down...
In France"

Merci beaucoup Jimmie D. Those were great. And just for the record Sarkozy is actually a little shorter than Napolean Bonaparte was.....

Napoleon was 5'9" (1.75 meters) tall, which was a normal height for French people of that time period.

I had read somewhere that France will not tax any overtime pay in an effort to get the French people working more than the usual 30 hours a week , on top of your " usual " 5 week vacations. We also understand you have almost the worst economy in Europe.

Hmm , over here it's usually 45+ hours a week and 2 weeks vacation IF you can squeeze it in.

:? :? :?

Any jobs open in France ? :wink:

Wasn't there a law passed in France a while back to force companies to provide the opportunity for a 2 hour 'nap' for employees during the day?

I'm not aware of that one king. Also, the work week here is 35 hours for employees. Of course management has to make up for those lost hours. I work a minimum of 50 hours a week, but, i get 7 days vacation in return. We do have A LOT of vacation time compared to what i had in Canada.

Standard vacation days 25 per year
+ days pertaining to the 35 hour work week 10 per year for me
+ days for hours over and above standard 7 per year
+ days for taking more than 2 weeks running 2 per year
= 44 days a year (not counting holidays)...

I love France... 8)

Of course the pay is lousy so you cant do anything on your vacation..... :wink:

Only Mystery Blow Job jobs open way down there -- but first you have to stand up when you go ca-ca so it'll stick to your cheeks to prove you're a native when you apply.
