And of course the USA Gvt are perfect?
????? Are you drunk posting? WHERE did I say anything about the US government?????
Of course the US Gvt are perfect again...
I'm sure there's some sort of understandable explanation for the weird remarks here, I won't judge you- but read my post tomorrow and see if you got
it mixed up with a different one or something?
Come on folks.. If you are going to have a dig at other countries at least accept and show that your country also has baddies that you folks blindly
I only vote in France, I do not vote in the US, and I don't consider it a "dig"- it is my opinion, based upon my observations.
There are tons of laws that are passed, but not so much enforced.
Like the veil one, which all americans went ape# about, but in reality, besides a couple examples, it is not enforced. There are women walking around
my town with their face covered, nobody does anything about it. The law was made so that in case where it is important to see the face, it can be
enforced legally- like when women are picking up their checks at the social security or CAF, they can be asked to show their face to prove their
identity (before, there was cases in which the same woman picked up many checks, under different names, wearing a veil).
It was also a statement on values for integration of immigrants, that they recognize laicity as an important part of the culture here.
That is not necessarily a "dig"...
They apply the idea of using a bit of jugeote
, enforce the law when necessary, but don't be a con and follow it to the letter when there is no
need for it. I personally have come to think that is pretty wise!
You live in France, you haven't observed the same things???
