    The comments here represent a vast misunderstanding of the differences of life in France vs. the United States, nor do the views of the Parisians mirror the views of those in Lyons.

    Protests in France require a "sense of situational awareness" but generally you won't see whole neighborhoods destroyed as we've seen in Ferguson or Los Angeles. The article noted the "yellow vests" honored the closed road leading to Notre Dame.

    French values do not mirror those of the US where "Equality" is high on the list based on their history which far surpasses our collective US history. It is smart to understand before rushing to judgement. Government has a place in our lives, thankfully we live in democracy's where we provide input into how much Government plays in our lives. I am thankful we invest in Schools, Roads and a legal framework through our Government which makes this nation a great place to raise families.

    Greedy, selfish, never satisfied ne’er do wells. Always want someone else’s money or to dictate how others spend it. AOC Lenin wants the same for us.

    This is what happens when people feel government is the provider. It's not!

    Politicians are not moms/dads and even then you take care of yourself when you grow up.

    Being responsible for who you vote for, and gaining a skill are keys to success.
