To reply to texas926, a remark: Matters have gotten to the point in Britain that all meat offered for sale is "halal", i.e. the animal blessed by a Muslim and then slaughtered by a Muslim, even if they don't advertize it as such to the rest of the British public. ...
Won't sell horse meat in Winooski VT. Might work in France or Germany.
Do you see? Hollywood et. al. promotes rebellion ... ... including violent rebellion ... -> what then follows from that?

Are the French Lazy?

You are thinking of the guillotines of the French Revolution. Since then the French have overthrown their governments in 1830, 1848, 1870, 1958 and came close in 1968. I don't recall them sending their rulers to the guillotine SINCE the 1790s.
Korea was stalemate. In terms of our WWII experience we felt we lost it. But reassess it 40 or more years later. South Korea is a big success, North Korea is a big failure. It now looks like a win to me. -- Too bad such things don't happen anymore. ...
(sarcasm on) We don't appreciate what is really important in the new America. It is no longer about 'The pursuit of (my own, my family's) happiness'. It is all about the pursuit of OTHER people's happiness. Making happy all those people that the Democrat elites tell us deserve to be happy. And speaking about screwed up government statistics, the green segment of the Democratic Party no longer believes in economic growth. They consider improvements in Gross-Domestic-Happiness, or Gross-Environmental-Happiness to be much much more important than improvements in GDP. Life is so much better when everyone walks to work, breathing the clean air, feeling the clean sunshine and wind, hearing the chirp of birds, croaking of frogs in protected puddles, and buzzing of mosquitoes at same. (conclusion, and with it the sarcasm.)
No. Not so. But when there is a societal insistence on the ethnicity or skin-color of some segment of the work-force, no surprise that a lot of people are uneasy about the qualifications of those workers ...

Blacks Must Confront Reality

Their is an element of media bias involved. The media reflexibly tells us that all the problems of blacks are caused by oppressions from whites and the whites' government.

Policy on the environment is set by a green-elite. Listen carefully and you can hear a few of the green-elites priorities and vision. They want a world and a nation with fewer people in it. They want to reduce fossil fuel use by 99% or more. No more private automobiles. The world they see has people getting about by bicycle or on foot. -- Everything else is simply diversion, until they can get what they want. Example, I once heard a greenie say that the best thing about rails (better than buses) is that nothing else can use the train's right-of-way. They like expensive trains partly because it sucks up all the money that MIGHT have gone into building roads.

They used to take it out to sea and dump it. They also dump it at Fresh Kills landfill on Staten Island. I doubt that is the complete statement of what they do with their trash.
