Socialism 101. Case Study? The Morons In France.

Chicks On The Right

So, you know France is a socialist utopia that’s literally driving its citizens to run FAR FAR AWAY due to its 75% high-income tax rate?  And you know how their leaders just can’t understand why taxing-and-spending does NOT FREAKING WORK?

To put it bluntly, France is bankrupt.

“Data from the Bank of France shows capital investment is leaving the country every day. Rating agencies Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s have both already removed France’s once-coveted AAA credit.

The President is currently trying to revive France’s economic fortunes by cutting spending by the equivalent of more than £51billion.”

BANK. RUPT.

To try to combat being broke, not only is he planning to raise taxes even MORE over the next five years like a drunken sorority girl on spring break with her Daddy’s credit card, but French President Hollande has recently had the brilliant idea of making everyone shut their lights off.

No.  I’m not kidding:

    Well at least the last non-muslim out of France won’t have to bother with turning out the lights. And the mustards will have car fires to light their way at night…for a while, anyway.

    And speaking of cars, Mssr. Hollande, have you promoted proper tire inflation as a money-saver? I’ve heard it can work miracles.

    Oh gaaah. I forgot about the INFLATE YOUR TIRES
    Thing. Too much stoopid to keep track of.

    With the American Revolution being the only possible exception, I cannot think of a single time when anything France did helped themselves or any of their allies. The French excel at blowing their own feet off and taking out several innocent bystanders in the process.

    Think of a Gallagher performance, writ large. So stand back, be sure to keep a plastic bag handy, and try not to be too close when the bloody guts start flying.

    What a brilliant (pun) idea. Lights out to save the planet. North Korea started that years ago. Now France picked up after all these years. Perhaps the ONE will suggest it here. I mean, do we really need all these fucking lights? Ever see a satelite photo of North and South Korea at night? That fucking South Korea is a diliberately wastefull
    country. North Korea ha three shining bulbs just north of the DMZ. That’s enough! Why waste what you don’t have? Cut down on your lighting America, and also your heating and cooling, and your wastefull automibilies, and inflate your tires, and eat soey beans. Ohforfucksakei’mlosingit. I’ll have one more and go to bed.

    Lights out!
    With the way the first afterbirth is regulating power plants here out of existence, how long before we get to aspire to be like N. Korea too?
