Je Sais

I hope the youth of France enjoy unemployment, because there is going to be a lot more of it in their future. The French government has decided to drop the labor law because of the protests. This of course makes sense because you definitely don't want to make it easy for employers to fire workers that stall the nation's business and turn violent anytime progressive legislation is passed (the removal of the legislation probably hurts the "immigrant" youth the worst - those that sparked the really violent protests last fall). The youth might feel empowered by this victory, but I think all they have done is proven that they are petulant, rash and uniformed. I can only hope this sort of foolish, widescale job protection never spreads to the US. Maybe "freedom toast" and "freedom fries" were not such a bad idea.
