Bloviating Zeppelin: Never Speak The Truth

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Never Speak The Truth

Brigitte Bardot spoke the truth in France, so now she's on trial. She said:

Prosecutors asked that the Paris court hand the 73-year-old former sex symbol a two-month suspended prison sentence and fine her 15,000 euros ($23,760) for saying the Muslim community was "destroying our country and imposing its acts".

The reason France is upset? Well, let's see -- nightly car burning, nightly car burning, strikes, nightly car burning -- all by Muslims. And oh yes: France is home to 5 million Muslims, Europe's largest Muslim community, making up 8 percent of France's population. Let's bottom line it: fear. France is afraid.

Obviously there's no freedom of speech in France, BZ. *sigh* My respect for Brigette has entered a new high! God bless her.

One of her issues was the slaughtering of sheep by Muslims, as she is an animal rights advocate.

Well wouldn't you be if you were France, scared that is? I mean they have history of being pussies, they have the largest Muzzie population in Europe and they get riots in a bird craps on a mosque.

France really does fly that white flag with pride...I don't think any of them remember what their own flag looks like...

Even if she is no longer the beauty she once was, my opinion of her has gone up a bit. There is some small sanity in the world of entertainment after all.

What nonsense! Fined for speaking her piece, which happens to be the truth?

A new twist to "Sometimes the truth hurts". Now it hurts in your wallet.
