Thread: France slams ‘extremist’ Titan CEO over Goodyear slur

  1. #11
    I never saw the EU as a way to destroy the French lifestyle. That is interesting. The growing Muslim population will eventually do that, with or without any EU influence. The EU is what it was intended to be, which is an economic alliance that was supposed to help Europe compete with the USA.

    The problem with any type of unification of different cultures is that some will feel a benefit and others will not. People never like losing aspects of their culture that they feel are important. We are certainly experiencing some of that in the USA under our current president.

    The same EU negotiating rep who sat next to me on the plane told me that the biggest problem with European unification is cultural. As he put it, in Germany when a man comes home and catches his wife in bed with another man and he shoots that man, they will lock him up un jail for a long time. But is France it would be justified as a act of passion. In Italy, they would pin a medal on his chest and parade him down the street as a hero. He saw culture as the hardest barrier to overcome.

    You say it pretty well that resume the whole story: "unification of different cultures is that some will feel a benefit and others will not".

    I think the French attitude has to do with the high unemployment rate. The unemployment rate in France is 9.6% and in warmer countries like Greece and Spain the rate is higher than 25%. So, you need to make the little work you have last or you will be out of a job.

    If I remember correctly from the last time I visited France, the work week was 35 hours and some of the socialist politicians were pushing for a 30 hour work week based on the claim that it will create the need for more jobs and will lower unemployment. That sounds a lot like the logic from our Marxist Democrats.

    A 9.6% unemployement for a European country is actually pretty good. I've seen Germany run an average of 15% during good economic times. Of course they are probably not fudging the numbers like they do in the USA. Our real unemployement rate is between 11% and 15%, depending upon how you want to look at the numbers. The real unemployment number is around 11%. If you include underemployed (people forced to take a part-time job) it is 15%.

    The high unemployment rate is due to globalization that is slowing down the entire economy, same thing in US. I will add that the government is forbidden to print their own money to make richer the private banking cartel, that charge interests on gov debt from thin air, at the people expense via higher taxes is what will provoke the down fall of our systems.

    We can thank our corrupted politicians by the private banking cartel and their central banks for betraying us.

    For all we know, things may be progressing according to the One World Order plan. The plan that the Bilderberg Groups is believed to be following calls for the complete economic collapse of the USA and European powers so that a new worldwide Socialist system can be introduced. Of course, the Rothchilds would still control the banking systems, but it would extend beyond the US and EU systems. The major powers have to go first in order for the economic domino effect to be initiated.

    A couple of good books on this topic are The Bilderberg Group by Daniel Estulin and The Trillion Dollar Conspiracy by Jim Marrs.

    Unfortunately, we are probably a lot closer to that collapse than the current administration is telling us. I see the economy as being in much worse shape today than when Dear Leader took office. He is leading us down a path and the sheep are following.

    Exactly, they get everything by the Ponzi money system corrupting every leaders from politics to unions. You have to look at the recorded paterns of these guys. The private federal reserve created in 1913 allowed to secretively print money from thin air with interests paid by our income tax, same thing in France Pompidou was an former bank director of Rothschild France who passed the law in 1975 to forbid the gov to print their own money and borrow at 0% interest. So now we must borrow on the private market aka federal reserve or else.

    So now with the EU, there is even better the ECB controlling every countries and everybody.

    I complety agree with you, and the red flags aren't on the first page of newspapers. What I like with the independant media is that some of them ping point the articles mentionning the red flags from the most reputable newspaper like Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, etc

    It starts by engineering an economic collapse, destroying the Constitution, military/police state and disarming the people. After that you are free to implement dictatorship, than all the other ally countries, NATO included will follow.

    There's a good chance the U.K. will pull out of the European Union.

    Speaking exclusively to Breitbart News, Andrew Rosindell M.P. (Member of Parliament) noted every year membership in the EU costs the UK $250 billion, or 6,000 pounds per UK family.

    It would be the best thing to happen to a lot of countries if they left the EU.
