    I saw it last night too on the news and not suprised at anything over there. I remember well when we went over in WW11 and saved their butts and they turn around and kick ours.It seems no matter how good we are to other people (countries) they all despise us.

    Yes, the French are different. Our boys coming home from France at the end of WWI called them "frogs". I wonder why. Anyway, political radicalism seems to be a national characteristic. I think the old-fashioned stocks as we had in colonial times would be appropriate for the leaders of that bossnaping. Maybe a few well-placed rotten tomatoes would be entertaining! GWH

    We are not far from that here, and may be worse. The bus tour and protests of the AIG people that got their contractual bonuses was sponsored by acorn or a branch of acorn. This bunch got money in the stimulus plan and is in obamas pocket. This is just the tip of the iceberg as far as what is coming our way with our government taking over banks, auto companies and business of all types. They are setting wages and putting their own people in management and now want to determine the wages of all employees. Who knew GM stood for Government Motors. The end is near.

    Hi Jim,
    If Obama thinks he can turn this country into a socialist state, let him try. I feel he will not succeed. I saw a pic on the Dodge power wagon website yesterday. It shows a guy driving a pick up with the following words written on the tailgate"One Big A.. Mistake America". Obama.

    Good on the French,at least they have the balls to do something about it.The rest of us sit on our hands and complain and do nothing.
    If we get a hot summer I can see big problems in the UK.
