Default French Riot Over Gasoline Taxes - 12-04-2018, 09:14 AM

You might be tempted to think of it as the French equivalent of the American TEA party, but the white flag waving, frog and snail eating, perfume wearing French have never amounted to much over the years. The "French Revolution" is one of their national prides - consisting of the storming of the Bastille where only 7 prisoners were kept, and yet they still celebrate it every year as "Bastille Day". Then there were some guillotines to dispatch a few thousand, and they unleashed the menace Napoleon on the rest of Europe to no lasting effect other than eventually electing him Emperor in spite of trying to get rid of the Monarchy in the first place. Needless to say, it took the Prussians to teach them a lesson and turn the place back into a Republic.

The French have a special place for their Marquis de Sade and his libertine sexuality, along with their recent penchant for electing pretty boys - in this case Macron, who seems to be the target for their recent uprising bordering on insurrection. All for raising the gasoline taxes - to combat Globull Warming.

And where is Jesus? - for a country that would embrace Jerry Lewis there is not much hope.

'Yellow Jacket' protests in France leave gas stations running dry; Paris riots worst since 1968
Saturday's unrest was the worst in central Paris since a student uprising five decades ago.

Dec. 3, 2018 / 11:18 AM GMT / Updated Dec. 3, 2018 / 12:39 PM GMT
By Reuters

PARIS — "Yellow Jacket" protesters blocking access to 11 fuel depots belonging to one of the world's biggest oil companies have left gas stations running dry in France.

At least 75 of the company's 2,200 gas stations were out of fuel, a spokesman for energy giant Total said Monday.

For more than two weeks, protesters angry over gas taxes and the high cost of living have been blocking roads across France, impeding access to fuel depots, shopping malls and some airports.

Riot police were overrun on Saturday as protesters brought chaos to Paris' fanciest neighborhoods, torching dozens of cars, looting boutiques and smashing up luxury private homes and cafes in the worst disturbances the capital has seen since 1968.

More than 100 people were injured in the French capital and 412 arrested over the weekend.

The "Yellow Jacket" revolt erupted on Nov. 17 and poses a formidable challenge to President Emmanuel Macron as he tries to counter a plunge in popularity over his economic reforms, which are seen as favoring the wealthy.

The "Yellow Jacket" activists are named after the neon vests French drivers are obliged to carry in their vehicles in the case of roadside emergencies.

The movement began online as an impromptu rebellion against higher fuel prices but has morphed into a broader outpouring of anger over the squeeze that living costs are putting on middle-class household budgets.

Their core demand is a freeze on further planned tax increases on gas and diesel — the next is due in January — and measures to help bolster spending power.

But many have also called for Macron to quit.

Public support for the "Yellow Jackets" remains high, with seven-in-10 people backing their protest, according to a Harris Interactive opinion poll conducted after Saturday's unrest.

Macron says the increased fuel taxes are part of his effort to combat climate change, wanting to persuade French drivers to exchange diesel-fueled cars for less polluting models.

I agree the French have no clue about anything and probably don't even know what they are rioting about. An entire wine soaked country will stagger through history and never know what day it is.

Too much wine was obviously the problem when some Frenchman designed the ugliest car ever made. Take a look at this Citeron 2CV:




Isaiah 24:1-3 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty (2)...as the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. (3) The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken his word.

And that's the de-luxe model! The combination of brandy and catholicism sure produces some interesting results. The Louisiana purchase for instance. Napoleon (a sort of 19th century Hitler) thought exchanging the green portion for ammunition to keep killing themselves in Europe was a good deal. And it was, just not for France!

Let's face it, would anyone ever believe what popes told them for centuries unless the claims made were backed up with very unpleasant deaths for gainsayers? Of course not. Popish claws have now been drawn but even though France managed a John Calvin, somewhat liberal but otherwise well intentioned critic of Rome, did they remain papist over there?

Yes. Maybe lure some popes back to Avignon fawn over them and dine on corruption? In the end Napoleon flogged off the land and bought bullets; by the time Bismarck turned up France was bankrupt.
