But at the same time, they voted in Macron, when they could have had Le Pen.

Macron offered the French hope , he was the new broom who was going change the peoples lives for the better , they feel let down because he is just more of the same .... Marine Le Pen was never really a viable option.



If any of those protesters voted for him, they need to go home and shut up.

Those who didn't have a crystal ball to allow them to see the future have every right to protest an out of touch leader just like anyone in the free world.

Was one candidate more liberal?

Was the other more conservative?

You guys still pay thousands of dollars. It's called taxes. Just because no one consolidates that into a neat packaged bill for you and labels it "health care," you guys delude yourselves into thinking you aren't actually paying for it. It's cute until you see these riots and get so puzzled over why that is.


Not quite. Right now my health care costs me less than 1k a year.

Over 50% of my taxes go on welfare.

89,000 police deployed to crush the yellow vests? Does France even have that many police? Perhaps 'private contractors' were drafted in? (Govt departments regularly 'privately contract' services to eachother) Were any of the 89,000 non French nationals?

With all those police called to the demo areas, has there been a crime spike in areas where officers were deployed from?

Do the French now wish they had elected psycho-cop Le Penn rather than bad-cop-banker Macron? Will the yellow vest movement feed puppet Macron's parroted call for an EU super army?

I'm curious what's the average (and not statistical average) salary in France and what is the purchasing power of those money. I wanna know how much would this tax impact most people simply because I know that some would blow paying 1% of their income out of proportion and get steered right into organized protest for hidden agenda. Now that you mentioned Frexit I think you've made someone moist right in Moscow.

Someone has to pay for the tens or hundreds of thousands of migrants from some of the poorest countries that either will not or cannot assimilate, their housing, healthcare, education, food and expenses must be provided by the taxpayers somehow.

Just have to find ways to do it that doesn't lead to protests riots.

Macron is smart, he will find a way.

American people were given a very small Amount of tax relief, they are happy with those crumbs even though the money itself buys less and they are no better off, but regardless they didn't have a tax increase.


I'm happy if I'm being given those crumbs instead of giving them to the Government for programs that will never benefit me or my family. California is the land of tax increases and the elites don't give a damn about anyone here. They truly believe they know how to spend my money better than I do and THAT is the problem. Land of the Free? More like "Land of the Enslaved"

Somebody also has to pay for all the white-collar jobs predicated upon the needs of the migrants et al. And those of the back-room boys in Brussels.

What are you dribbling about?




it's less, because you don't buy the car and you don't pay taxes for owning it.

this is what you said


Transportation of the future is that it's a service. The trend is in general towards services and less "owning"


If you think somehow that leasing a car or paying for a service will work out cheaper - well - do you think car manufacturers and the GDP that it brings will go out with a whimper? I think you don't know basic household finance let alone macro economics.

my words were....


ts doublespeak for further taxation. When our telephone lines, our natural gas lines were opened to private enterprise did the taxpayer get any return on the investment he had contributed to over the last 50 years? What about road tolls on roads we have paid for and keep paying for through petrol taxes?


We have already paid for a lot of this infrastructure.

If you don't own a car because you can't save or hold a steady job at least be honest about it.

Their poor is still very rich compared to 3/4 of the world.


So now you're moving the goal posts?

Maybe you should reread the link and see that why people are upset

Why should the super rich get tax breaks at the expense of the middle income earners?

from the link


T"his confirms that he has a serious image problem with a surprisingly large segment of the French population: some surveys have the level of public support for the protests at around 70 percent, despite the violence.

“Such levels of wider support must have taken Macron and his advisers by surprise and are key to understanding his change of policy tack: his earlier promise, reiterated in a speech to the G20 over the weekend, never to give in to street protest could only have been kept by relying on the police to manage or crush the demonstrations.”

I'm convinced that if you value money so much you are burning down Paris for it


You would go to any length to twist the story? They are protesting further tax increases and fuel increases. Not that they cant buy the latest iphone

Give it up - at least admit you missed the point being made by the protesters.

Very well put. The central banks are cornered by the Rothschilds, the rest of the wealth is being carved up by transnational globalists. This is why they had clauses in the TPP where a company didn't have to abide by local laws.

Screw the little man.

www.smh.com.au...


The UN Conference on Trade and Development has published new research that shows that increased market power of global corporations is driving global income inequality...

....This research supports the case against giving corporations greater legal powers to sue governments over changes to domestic laws in trade deals, (known as investor-state dispute settlement or ISDS) like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP-11). The TPP-11 emerged after the US withdrew from the TPP-12 and is being reviewed by both Joint and Senate parliamentary inquiries, before the parliament votes on the implementing legislation, with a Joint Committee hearing in Sydney on Friday.

The Turnbull government has agreed to ISDS in the TPP-11, despite the Howard government rejection of it in the US-Australia FTA. The previous ALP government also rejected it, as does current ALP policy, together with Greens and Centre Alliance policy. These parties, with other cross-benchers, form a majority in the Senate.


Critics such as former High Court chief justice Frenchhave noted these tribunals have no independent judiciary, precedents or appeals. There are now over 850 known cases, with increasing numbers against health, environment and even indigenous land rights law and policy.

hahaha

Tell me how the bank bailouts weren't a form of socialism handout!

You believed the lie that they were too big top fail?

I keep reminding my US friends that with oil being traded in US $ and their invasion of other countries for "loot" you should all be sitting on $millions in your piggy banks. Funny how there is so much poverty in the US.

If you think its all bout "socialism" versus capitalism then you really have your head in the sand.

But you cling to this fear of other countries policies and crap on about capitalism and yet there is no such thing as free capitalism in the US.

The US is run on crony capitalism and lobbyists.
