Bloviating Zeppelin: France Goes Socialist

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.

France Goes Socialist

Again, Texas Fred and I are in complete agreement.

I foreshadowed the outcome of France's presidential election as far back as April 16th.

At the precise time that France should hold to its conservative guns, it is determined that the printing press is not only open for business but will be never-stopping for France.

And so: it came true.

François Hollande has won France’s presidential election, giving the country its first Socialist president in almost two decades, exit polls showed Sunday.

According to Ipsos polling institute, the left-wing candidate took 51.7% of the vote to incumbent Nicolas Sarkozy’s 48.3%.

Nicolas Sarkozy was defeated in the French presidential election by Socialist Francois Hollande on Sunday, May 6th. Hollande will take office on May 17th.

I don't call Hollande a "Socialist" in passing; oh no. Hollande is an actual declared Socialist and proud of the appellation as First Secretary of the French Socialist Party. He is the first Socialist Party installation in nearly two decades.

Huffington Post posits this was nothing more than an "anti-Sarkozy" vote. And Hollande has five years in which to make his pitch reality.

Apparently the clarion call from the French people (who are becoming predominantly Muslim in nature via demography) to the French Wheelhouse was: "HARD A-PORT!"

Hollande's specific clarion call in return was "austerity can no longer be inevitable."

In the words of Kurt Vonnegut: "and so it goes."

So: "austerity can no longer be inevitable"?

As in the response of the US: "we'll keep on printing paper 'til we die"?

Let me be blunt:

The French can't protect their country. The French won't even protect themselves. One French joke:
  • Q: How do you view the French Navy?
  • A: Through a glass-bottomed boat.
The French are in fact arrogant, elitist, and dying. They lack the will to even support their own nation, their former "culture." They have no culture now, lost in what Angela Merkel calls the "multi-kulti" atmosphere. The French even admitted in 2011 that "multi-kulti" = failure.

Nicolas Sarkozy dared to state in February of 2011:
If you come to France, you accept to melt into a single community, which is the national community, and if you do not want to accept that, you cannot be welcome in France," the right-wing president said.

With that in mind, Monday will portend many events (I write this post on late Sunday night).

What will the global stock markets look like today, May 7th?

As I write this: too early to tell. But that will in fact tell all. . .however:
Asian stocks tumbled the most since November and the Euro weakened to a three-month low after French Socialist Francois Hollande was elected President and U.S. employers added fewer jobs than forecast. Treasuries and the Yen advanced, while commodities slid.

I end with:

How does this affect the US? Will we all just keep kissing the ass of Islam like the wonderfully-powerful and sacrificial French, as portrayed here:



Perhaps it is somehow fitting that I write: "Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori."

Just to disagree on one point. Please don't mock French soldiers. It is their leadership that is gutless, not them.

Is THAT ever correct.


I'll take that in advisement. You make a good point.
