    50 years ago, that was true. Not any more.

    Sarkozy is facing huge problems in France because he's trying to reform their agricultural policies.

    They've basically been subsidizing people to farm things that practically no one wants. Cheap ass table wine that won't sell and they're making enough bank to build on additions to their estates or swimming pools. He's said enough is enough and is telling them to shape up or change jobs.

    It's a huge HUGE problem over there.

    It finally loaded for me (my internet over here sucks) and I have to say that's probably one of the best political speeches I've ever heard. I know a bit of French and I'll say that it was far more eloquent in French than what the translator was turning it into (giving her credit, that's fucking hard to do on the fly like that).

    He is probably the best thing to happen to France since we helped them.

    They elected Mitterand expecting mass socialism to bring wealth. It didn't.

    Given enough time they've come to their sense and realized that you can make peace between socialism and capitalism. I don't approve of everything they do, but the country is at least moving forward.

    As much as I hate to say it, it's better than the current state of the UK in terms of civil liberties. Their economy will come when the Euro's value drops and investment starts rolling in.

    That is fantastic. I'm not ashamed to admit that he evoked a tear here & there, especially when talking about our sacrifices in Normandy. :hs:

    The point of all what? That's an extremely broad question.

    I teared up with the mentioning of his father taking him to the grave yards where thousands of men lay beneath crosses and that they fought not for their own freedom, nor for the safety of their families, but for the freedom of humanity.

    I'm telling you Sarkozy could signal a dramatic change for France.

    Sarkozy is the best thing to happen to France, IMO. Unfortunately, the majority of the country is so set in their ways they dont want to change

    :ugh:

    Because he is trying to turn around work ethic, for one. Also, he doesn't agree with their social care system. The county needs good ideas, but no one will follow.
