French Need Not Share Their Brie With The Poles

The French voted down the EU Constitution. While it may appear they did so because they grasped the over-reach of the government bureaucrats in their attempt to micro-manage every detail of the lives of every European, the "NON" vote had more to do with their xenophobia, socialist proclivities and overall arrogance than with an appreciation of the ideals of liberty and freedom. These people truly want none of that.

David Ignatius of the WaPo (as linked by Hit and Run) said:

"Whatever their class, age or political orientation," says Ignatius, "French people want to conserve what they've got. They want to maintain inflexible management and labor unions, six-week vacations, a 35-hour workweek -- and also to be a growing, dynamic, entrepreneurial economy. Chirac never had the guts to tell the French they couldn't have it both ways. He never explained that rigid labor rules had led to a high unemployment rate, currently 10.2 percent."

Without the fierce French fighting machine forming part of the EU military force, Boca Raton and Delray Beach can breath a sigh of relief. They need not worry about the EU armies mounting an invasion.
