Seems like the Euro Crisis is spreading to France. Socialism must be working great in France.

France Debt
Do you mean the last 17 years of RIGHT WING Government ?!?! Chirac and Sarkozy socialists ?!?! On What planet ? France has not had a "socialist" Government for almost two decades. Get with the programme and check your facts before your post silly comments. And even the " Socialist" Government was still firmly Capitalist if slighly less so than America. You people make me laugh. Just as well or the ignorance would make me cry.

The Rich have never had it so good in France and the Middle Classes and Poor so bad. Now if you call that Socialism then I think your definition needs a little attention....

France didn't have a right-wing government.
Chirac are and Sarkozy were both big government nanny state socialists. Just because they called themselves conservatives, doesn't mean they are conservatives.
Doesn't matter anyway. France will default on its debt withing the next ten years. The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money. It's deemed for collapse.
Stop posting silly, idiotic, loony comments. You are a laughing stock.
The EU is on it's way to collapse. Welcome to the EUDSSR.

Sarkozy a socialist ? Chirac a socialist ? He was borderline National Front. Keep taking the meds. Grow up and educate yourself , being ignorant is not an attractive trait.

Funny this little "socialist" country managed to remain in the top 10 economies in the last few decades though. Same with Germany who would be by your rabid rants even more socialised than France ( their public service and social benefits being even stronger ). And places like Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands which are ubersocialised don't seem to be doing too badly either. Obviously we are not quite as "perfect" and marvellous as the US but considering all the evils of our socialised systems some of us even have shoes and three meals a day.

As for defaulting on its debt, thank you for your crystal ball predictions, have you ever thought of ever touring with the circus and renaming yourself Madame Irma ? The freak show beckons methinks. Could be a nice little earner, not sure why but there is always a demand for this sort of entertainment.

The ignore button, such a modern marvel.

Don't always believe what you think Darling, books can teach you such a lot... You might even learn the difference between socialised and socialist. I am French, and believe me the concept of profit making, the market and private property are enshrined in our cheese eating surrender monkeys tiny brains.

My Step Mother was one of the very first female traders in France, my Family is super wealthy ( and getting wealthier thanks to 17 years of right wing conservative policies, half of the family being old aristos still allowed to live in the ancestral old house go figure ) and we worship the God of Mamon almost as much as Americans do.

Just because Ayn Rand is not quite as popular as in the US don't go thinking France is not Capitalist. It is just Capitalist with a smaller c . But then again everything is after all bigger and more extreme in the US . USA ! USA! USA! Land of Freedom and Best place on the Planet.

And look where Capitalism got you ? Not that great. Not only your economy goes down the drain but you feel you have to drag the rest of the world with you. Thank you so much for that. Subprime Mortgages anyone ? Unfetterred Greed ? Unregulated financial system ? Anyone ? Anyone ? This recession and economic crisis started in the US. Not in France. Time to look at your own reflection in the mirror and see it for what it is not the self inflated puffed up patriotic uncritical garbage spewing image you love to hold up to the world.



"Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt".

Just think before you open your mouth dearie, I known facts can be hard to comprehend but still a little intellectual exercise keeps those little grey cells going, Honest, give it a go and soon that tired old muscle will be right up to speed again.

Ignore.

By American standards Sarkozy and Chirac are Socialists. America has the highest standard of living in the world. Youth Unemployment in France is 25 % (talk about a lost Generation). For the rest of your spewed garbage you can remain lost like you apparently are. Won't take long until France is downgraded again.
Darlin, only a fool like you responds to a post and then puts the responded to poster on ignore.
But hey, if you want.

Ignore.

Just for your memory: The FPIGS will collapse.
