Boycotting French products?
Posted 27 April 2003 - 10:03 AM
1.legislate that speaking of French in the US will qualify for deportation!
2. Make it a felony to consumn French Fries and/or French Toast!
3. Cut out the image of the country of France from all Atlases, maps and school books. If anyone asks why an empty hole is there - tell them it reflects the emptyness of Chirac's head!
4. Remove all historical references to France, or the French Foreign Legion form all books sold in the US!
5. Send back the Stature of Liberty to France with shipping collect!
6. Send the UN to Paris, sure don't need them in New York!
7. Send 5,000 Guillotines to the French people as a subtle reminder to the French Government that the people of France will eventually arise to rid itself of rascally weasels like Chirac!
I think this would please me......... ;D

Well, being in this part of the world dunno what the issue is! Here, these morons are behind the American and British product ban!
Burning Coke and Pepsi factories, Stoning CitiBank / KFC / Pizza Hut! well, there goes the heroic antics of the followers of pre-jurassic ideology (i know all of you are matured enough to understand the "@*$ ism" I am talking about)
And these are the same people who travels in a Ford or an Opel! People who needs Ray Ban! People who well, forget it!
I don't stand for the bans in any way! But if anyone finds it appropriate way to express, go ahead! Say Cheese!

I guess it is hard for people in other countries to see our (America's) point. It is basically a supposed friend letting you down in a very big way. We went into their country in WWII and freed their people but when we ask for their help against a mad man that is just as bad as Adolph Hitler, they turn their snobbish noses up at us. They even went as far as to share the contents of secret talks between us and France with Iraq. They really do deserve to be boycotted in every way and just as soon as they find themselves needing some assistance from an outside source I hope that our country just laughs at them! ;D

Sometimes adults need a break from Political Correctness.
I am not saying you are not an adult- I have no way of knowing that. The post was submitted as a form of political satire. This form of humor must contain a grain of truth to be effective.
There are alot of hard feelings toward France in this country. Satire is one way to release pent up emotion without really hurting anyone. If we laugh at our frustrations things don't seem so bad anymore.
I think alot of folks in our country would have a few comments about the Germans also. I am of German descent and would take no offense at a similar post focusing on Germany. You see Val, I would know the difference between Political Satire and true malice.
btw I am NOT a Moderator.

What needed to be boycotted is the wrond doings of the politicians! They really suck! Wherever, they have the same stink!

I think that the biggest reasons that we are being so hard on the French is the fact that we saved their butts in WWII and also the fact that we have known that the
French haven't liked Americans for a very long time. That just makes our opinions that much easier for us. Also, we are a very proud country!!

(both saboutage in the UN and their...hem, less than enthusiastic participation :) is not unlike sibling or family rivalry.
In a way they were our midwives when we declared independance from GB, their help, of course, was probably based on hurting the English holdings in the New World rather than a need to help a fledgling eagle spread its wings ;D
160-some years later, they're hocks are saved after the Nazis cut through the Maginot Line like so much Brie (sorry, its close to lunch time), but that kind of rescue often breeds resentment. The nation they helped break the shell from just saved their tails....DANG!
In another 30 years that same nation is considered a super power on the international scene. I am NOT condoning their actions (Flying, the one condition we should grant is the destruction of Pepsi manufacturing plants ;D), I'm just offering a perspective as to why they'd be such butts. Of course, the same happened to the English and they're fighting beside us-they just consider us a bunch of coffee swilling, wrong side of the road driving on savages ;D 8)
I'm a little too fond of french fries and toast to support a
boycott and since a lot of my family from the old country only speak French

Well, Whispers might!!! LOL
The point being if you can laugh at a problem, then you might think about it. If you think about it, you might realise the whole boycott thing is a ludicrus "tempest in a teapot". There are even people boycotting American companies because they think they are French, example French's mustard-an American company!
Besides, I have very fond memories of French Kissing! ;D
So I say a toast, to the same fine people that brought us the French and Indian War! LOL :

If you'll remember, sauerkraut was called liberty cabbage during WWII, I'm sorry, man, I should have known better or at least had more faith in a friend
