Paris Burns

Once again Paris is having another of a series of riots. The prime culprit is always unemployment as whenever rioters are arrested they seldom have steady jobs. This is true for Crown Heights, LA and wherever else disorder happens.

Ultimately, the real culprit is that of the Eurosocialist paternalism. The elitist far left thinks Abdul
wants a pat on the head and a welfare check in perpetuity. These same mindless types co-opt and facilitate the most obnoxious Islamic grievances as a means to power. Sadly, the French are learning that Abdul like the rest of us needs a decent job and will not be satisfied with a welfare check and obnoxious Anti Americanism and Anti Israel mania.

Ultimately, the low growth is caused by the public largess with cradle to grave welfare. Cradle to grave welfare is not the true measure of a society. The measure of a society is how few people need such programs. Sarkozy was elected in the aftermath of these absurd riots and if they continue it may be the impetus for the well needed Social Saftey net, immigration and fiscal reforms needed by France.

I'm sorry Beak, but the European growth rate is roughly equal to ours at the moment.

Of course, their currency is worth something so they can buy stuff and invest and all that, so their future doesn't look to bad.

Did you check out the terms of the Abu Dhabi bailout of Citi yesterday? Citi will be paying a premium to Abu Dhabi for the foreseeable future.

The 7.5 billion that the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority is paying to buy a 4.9% stake in Citigroup begins the process of selling off America's once profitable financial system. The country will now be paying a rent, in the form of the profits accruing to Abu Dhabi and the other foreign buyers that must surely follow its lead, equal to what it once collected for itself.

So let's all give a big cheer to that dumb Randoid Alan Greenspan and enjoy this huge boom and bust cycle we are committed to (Hint: It ain't a perpetual motion machine, we will feel the pain).

Good Giuliani article

Giuliani, grounded in the intricately connected world of New York politics, has been more than adept at making the system work for his clients. They have included a pharmaceutical company that, with Giuliani's help, resolved a lengthy Drug Enforcement Administration investigation with only a fine; a confessed drug smuggler who hired Giuliani to ensure his security company could do business with the federal government; and the horse racing industry, eager to recover public confidence after a betting scandal.

There's more Beak. Check it out and then tell us why anyone should support this mobbed-up punk just because he makes people who live in constant fear, such as yourself, feel safe. Bothers me because you are so far gone that the only thing that will make you feel safe is a police state.

The riots will continue until the French withdraw from New Algeria.

The French economy has failed to produce jobs for decades. It seems that employers will create jobs in places that require people to do actual work and that allows people to be fired for failure.

The notion that the mafia had any connection to Rudy is quite comedic considering it had a contract to kill Guliani. This may be an anti Italian slur on your part.

The riots are Koran based, and will continue indefinitely. Last year's riots had Muslim leaders calling for a separate Islamic state in France, which of course would lead to further concessions and more land grabs.
Ask Israel.
Sarkosy needs to show strength, or risk larger riots and more demands.

France can sic helicopter gunships on unarmed people in the capital city of Cote D'Ivoire, why not the capital city of their own country?

Oh, I'm sorry. The people in the capital city of Cote D'Ivoire were Christians.
