French University President Disgusted with French Youth.
So what do you want for nothing?
Guardian UK : The president of the world-renowned Sorbonne University has branded French students protesting about the country's new employment law "ignorant and stupid".Oh I see just a free ride with no blisters required. Lazy punks been hanging with too many Muslims, don’t they realize if you provide value to your employer you won’t be the one fired? Oh yes they do realize that and that’s why they are upset, never mind.
Reacting to protests over the law, which makes it easier for employers to fire, and therefore presumably more willing to hire, young workers, Jean-Robert Pitte said the youngsters had no dreams but believed everything was due to them as a right without having to work for it.
"I'm very angry about the demagogy, the ignorance and the stupidity of the young and of the French," said Dr Pitte, 56, a geography professor who has taught at Oxford and Cambridge and holds the Légion d'honneur. "Today's youth don't have dreams, they have illusions. To dream is to want to accomplish something difficult that is a challenge. Instead youngsters believe they have a right to everything and if things don't go the way they want it's someone else's fault."
WOW!!! He just described modern Liberalism. lol!

Perhaps not everyone wants to live in the US system where you have a super-rich minority, a middle class getting screwed and 40% of people with no health insurance.

So now it is the middle class that is getting screwed?
Nothing like trying to pander to the largest audience. Next thing you know it will be the upper middle class that is getting screwed by those filthy rich neocons!
Too bad the majority of the filthy rich lean left...

Of course if someone said all Americans were stupid ignorant doughballs, people would say "thats not true of us all, it's just Graeme who is like that"
But of course that is different isn't it.

maybe what they really want is to be lazy bums who don't have to work for a living and that's why they want jobs where they aren't allowed to be fired.

You don't like Western European style social democracy, that's cool, you don't have to like it. We don't like the idea of working ourseoves to death with no social benefits like in the US model, but we don't blogpost on how stupid we think you are to put up with it.

I'm talking about the rioting students. They have equal rights with other French workers.

The govt is proposing that if you are under 26 you are not protected from unfair dismissal like the rest of the workforce.

And they all suck.
We are the wealthiest, happiest, most free people in the world, and even our poor are fat, and you and every other whiney piece of shit like you in the world envies and hates us for it. So fuck off and peddle your Marxist crap somewhere else, because I don't have time for it, as I'm working seven days a week, eight to ten hours a day, and I'm making tons of money by my work ethic, self-discipline, and my dedication to my craft. What do you do, serve fries to people like me?

"We are the wealthiest, happiest, most free people in the world"
Yes thats right mate, you just keep thinking that and everything will be just fine.
Make sure though that you avoid ever going abroad, we wouldn't want your illusions getting shattered would we. Oh I forgot, you don't get to go on holiday do you, just working to hard.
Funny that your amazing work ethic seems to allow for you to waste time posting online, but who am I to comment.
Off to the beach.

Never mind going abroad, I live abroad.
He's right. (Well, mostly. Australia is pretty darn good too.)

I been overseas (through alot of Europe, Turkey and Egypt) and everywhere i went i heard Americans talking about how everything in America is Faster, Bigger, Better, More efficient. One man even said that America would be able to straighten The tower of Piza!!! HAHA!(italy could too but what bout the tourists retard) How stupid can you get? And these are the Americans that are interested in countried other than their own so they're the good ones! It's a pretty widespread opinion in Aus that Americans are selfish stupid and NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT!

However, I still think the French went overboard with the new law. 2 years is, in my opinion, ridiculous. It doesn't take two years to evaluate a new employee to determine if you're going to keep them on.

Anti-Americanism is a mental disorder.
Posted by: Jesusland Carlos at April 04, 2006 04:36 AM
But don't let that stop you from your selective America bashing.

You're off to the beach, eh? Well I go about twice a year, and to the mountains as often as I like, not to mention fishing for every kind of freshwater fish, hunting, and shooting all my big, mean assault rifles at the range, and I'm going to buy a beach condo, or maybe a chalet in the mountains, or both. If you ever come to America, remember that I tip my pizza guys well if they're quick and polite.

ve been told by the VP I have a job for life if I want it but it's not in the contract. Who wants to be where they are not an asset and productive just to milk the check anyway? Idiots. My advice pass the law and make yourself useful. I doubt the law says the civil discrimination is now lawful. It just means that if you don't make money or provide an asset you need to move on. hard to compete with a bunch of dead asses hanging on your back.

Also you seem to be obsessed with fast food, watch out or you will get to big for your cubicle fatty.
(this is rather to easy)
Posted by: Sonic at April 04, 2006 05:44 PM
Yeah, I eat a lot of fast food, because I burn about four thousand calories a day, and not in a cubicle, but building houses. Guys like you bring me my food and pick up after me while I flirt with the cute waitresses who won't give you the time of day because you're a loser. I work when I choose, and I stop when I choose, because I work for myself. I'm free, fit, healthy, happy, and very well paid, and that just kills you, which is the best part of it all.
Sorry, but as in the rest of life, you lose here too.

Interesting that building sites now have internet connections isn't it.
Still thats how improbable old improbulus is, women love him, men want to be him and I laugh at him.
