I love this. I can't describe how funny it's been lately to watch the American right support the left wing of France and Denmark.
Really, it's been a rare lesson in not knowing your arse from your elbow.
I know this thread isn't exactly about the whole thing but it's as much of a misguided triumphant fart as the rest.
IT WAS THE LEFT SUPPORTING NO IN FRANCE!
IT WAS THE LEFT SUPPORTING NO IN DENMARK!
I'm still laughing thinking about it.
The vote in France was basically against (apart from revenge votes based on domestic policies) The vast promotion of US style free market capitalism
in Europe. The French stood up for the people. (you remember the people, they're those folk you probably live with and work beside everyday; Unless
of course you live in a "community" surrounded by barbed wire, protected by armed guards, dogs and gates like something out of Greek mythology) and
against the encroachment of Big Business into the everyday ruling of everyone's lives. They voted no to increased Americanisation, not to increased
It's hilarious seeing this lapped up by the Republicans amoungst us though.
The funniest thing is, this basically changes nothing except the next constitution is going to have to take into account a lot more of what I suppose
the US would call the "socialist" values of the European people.
While the US right wing applauds all the way.
Oh yeah, just to be on topic, weak US payroll figures have alreadly helped the Euro's
Seriously though, thanks for the laughs.
