  1. I’ve started telling people that Jeff Bezos represents a far bigger threat to American “democracy” (such as it is) than Trump. But it’s tough to explain why because you can’t fit the many reasons onto a simple bumper sticker.

  2. French Protests.Are not about only about Fuel l!!!! Macron’s last act was just the straw that broke the camels back!!!! That pushed the Freanch people over the edge!!!

    The Protests are less about Fuel and more about “Neoliberalism” !!!!
    Since Macron was elected ~ Macron has been systematically changing France into what the US population has been living with for Years.. The French People See this….. And the French People Are saying No!!! No!!! = No to Neoliberalism!!!

    The American People are like “Boiling Frogs” they don’ see that they are cooked and picked clean by Neocon & Neoliberal thieves who … Robbed them and corrupted their government for years… The French People and most of the world see this truth very clearly!!!! But the American MSM is owned by the same thieves that robbed them …. and MSM has Brainwashed them and distracted them and filled their minds with Bread and Circus !!!!

    The French People are doing what they did in 1968!!!! The American People should follow in the French People Footsteps!!!!! But they have been brainwashed for years …


  3. Macron must be dismissed because he violated the French constitution at least ten times.

    Violation # 1: impoverishment and precariousness of entire sections of French society.

    Violation # 2: the low-cost sale of strategic interests and public services.

    Violation # 3: the incessant denigration of the French people.

    Violation # 4: the muzzling in its favor of the public service’s audiovisual media, and the unprecedented attempt to impose a supposed truth by law, in particular by passing a law against so-called “fake news”.

    Violation # 5: undermining national unity

    Violation # 6: the programmed destruction of thousands of French communes.

    Violation # 7: a policy aimed at constantly eroding national independence and dissolving France in a federal Europe under German rule.

    Violation # 8: the violation of the rights of parliament and international law.

    Violation # 9: The permanent highlighting of a warlike rhetoric aimed at promoting continental European nationalism.

    Violation # 10: the constant disregard with which Macron deals with the French language and the French-speaking countries.
