No French person would make a toast with a Perrier.
Does this mean we can take Freedom Fries off the menu?
Au contraire, Roland Kayser, I have seen French people toast with any and every
liquid, including (ciel!) orange Fanta. A votre santé! Vive la France!
Vive la Republique!
Was not France the country that noted that the war in Iraq for weapons of mass
destruction was not worth the cost? Is not the Trillion dollars unfunded by
Congress a major part of the deficit?
France is a fascinating country. Having spent two years in Belgium and France,
I've seen first-hand some of their culture, some of their history, some of their
core beliefs.Many in France, like Mr. Obama, believe that there is
some 'rich guy" who is going to pay their bill. They believe in a
sub-forty-hour work week. They believe that everyone is entitled to a month's
vacation. They believe that the government "owes" them whatever they
need that they cannot or will not provide for themselves.While they
have relied on their "arrogance" to further their position in the
world, the world has passed them by. They are no longer a "world
power". Their opinion is not sought nor is it considered. They have
proven that they have encapsulated themselves into a world of their own
making.That is exactly what Mr. Obama is trying to do to us. It has
not worked for France. It will not work for us.
Nobody asks thier opinion? Seems to me conservatives were pretty upset when
France didn't think Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. Why did they think
that? They believed the inpectors that had allready looked.People
seemed to care about France's opinion when they were pouring out thier french
wines and changing menu boards to freedom fries. France is a place
where everyone shares in the riches of society according to thier work and
efforts - not according to arbitrary free market values that pay evil works more
than honest jobs.
