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".
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."

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.

2 Modern liberalism IS socialism. Which is why it's so utterly stupid.

3 Why drag Muslims into this, becoming a bit obsessed?

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.

5 Yeah Howie! I just had some of what Sonic's smoking and he's right. It's not like muslims believe they have a right to everything (except to govern their own neighbourhoods, ban offensive cartoons, artwork and essays, kill their daughters, destroy the non-muslim world)and it's not like they believe that when things don't go the way they want it's someone else's fault (except those couple of times they've blamed the Jews). Man, you're so obsessed.

6 "a middle class getting screwed"

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...

7 Yes thats right Graeme, thats all muslims, all 1.1 billion people, all exactly the same.

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.

8 Sonic,

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.

Posted by: Jesusland Carlos at April 03, 2006 07:42 PM

9 What they want is equal rights with other French workers. You all seem to find it really hard to grasp that there are alternative models to the US way of doing things.

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.

11 Just like the idiots protesting for illegal aleins stupid and braindead

12 jesusland, ever actually read what the demonstrations are about?

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

Posted by: Sonic at April 03, 2006 10:04 PM

13 Yes Sonic, there are alternatives to the US way of doing things.

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.)

GO SONIC!!!
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!

Go Islam!

18 Well, when a sense of entitlement is bred into you from day one I can understand why Sonic feels the way he does. The fact is that article is right. This is the way things are in France. The youth, in particular, think not getting fired from a job is a "human right" alongside free health care and lifelong unemployment benefits.

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.

19 >>>Go Islam

Anti-Americanism is a mental disorder.

Posted by: Jesusland Carlos at April 04, 2006 04:36 AM

20 Ressurected Dragon, and I supposed they just loved your anti-Americanism. Why did you come back? You know - since we're all so stupid over here and you seem to be the only one who turned out right. Never mind that there are arrogant and stupid people all over the world. And here's a real shocker for you ... some of them visit the US and act like idiots while they're here too.

But don't let that stop you from your selective America bashing.

Posted by: Oyster at April 04, 2006 06:03 AM

21 Jesus Sonic, you little libtard morons are as stupid as you seem, aren't you? Avoid going abroad? I've been abroad, and I'm really impressed with the way most of the rest of the world lives in some version of an open sewer and has to work twice as hard as I do for just a handfull of rice a day. I also love how European cities are rife with crime and packed with hostile third-worlders, and how you Kiwis have turned the Maoris into a nation of alcoholics. It's a good thing they don't use the American model, else they might actually get ahead, and we can't have that!
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.

22 Unfair dismissal? My contract says I work at the pleasure of both parties. My employer and me. if one for whatever reason so long as it's not discriminatory or against the law either party can end the relationship at any time. for instance if my employer don't want me to work here. They can fire me. I can draw benefits. I get a big fat severance check. But see they keep me because I'm useful. I
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.

23 Why sonic asks a good question. Always blaming others not our fault bullshit its was the evel jooooos who fired me cause I was a lazy screwup, oppressed me for 10,000 years crap. See it now?

Posted by: Howie at April 04, 2006 09:14 AM

24 Makes the beach twice a year!

All hail.

Idiot.

Posted by: Sonic at April 04, 2006 03:03 PM

25 Yeah, I go to the beach twice a year, even though it's about 400 miles away. Unlike you, I have a life, and do lots of other things with it, like hunting, fishing, hiking, boating, etc., but mostly I work and make lots of money. Now go get me a burger and fries, and maybe I'll let you mow my grass.

Posted by: Improbulus Maximus at April 04, 2006 04:46 PM

26 Mostly you seem to post here, and in working hours as well...

Strange that.

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

27 Rather to easy? Unlike English, apparently, but I suppose the irony will be lost on you, so never mind.
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.

Posted by: Improbulus Maximus at April 04, 2006 08:24 PM

28 Does anyone remember that Show Fantasy Island?

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.

Posted by: Sonic at April 04, 2006 08:35 PM

29 Oh that was a stinging comeback, it almost made me stop yawning. I'm posting from home you moron, but you can't be expected to know how the whole "work for a living" things goes. You see, I get up early, blogsurf for a bit, go to work, get my work done, go home, eat supper, blogsurf more, then go to bed. At the end of the job I deposit a large check in the bank and move on to the next job. You are a parasitic loser who thinks that you'll be able to make a career out of hanging onto society's teat. You will starve eventually, if the Maoris don't slaughter you, and that makes me happy.

Posted by: Improbulus Maximus at April 05, 2006 06:06 AM

30 Oh look the remf blowhard is back posting again.

Posted by: Sonic at April 05, 2006 04:45 PM

31 Wow, that's some retort you've got there? Where'd you pick that up, the school playground? Isn't it time for you to deliver a few pizzas or something?
