I bet if they had the gas, and alcohol tax WA has it would be even worse.

It’s a bit more than just fuel taxes. It’s a pile on effect of Paris-specific legislation and French government regulations.

Not a good thing, and the people are speaking.


And now the yellow vest protests are starting in other countries.

The problem with being on social media, is that you know too many people that you don't know. (And yes, you can quote me on that. LOL)

That's a bit of a stretch. It's up on a low boy/flat bed. Now the guy in San Diego really stole a tank.

Pretty good? That video was a mind blow.
It's 35+ minutes... Well worth the watch, and I was thinking things like "No way... that can't be right. "

Googling right through that 35+ minutes, mind blown multiple times. I highly recommend the video and looking up verifiable facts.
Seriously, that was the densest knowledge dump that I've received in probably the last decade.

Stefan knows his shit :bigsmile: lots and lots of "the truth about ______" vids, all with source links etc.
I have been watching his channel for a while (though not lately, no time with the fam and holidays) and it is very, very informational
makes you go "Ho Lee Fuk" almost every time :bow:

Macron is trying to bribe the rioters with 10 billion euros to stop destroying the country. Probably not going to work but it is funny to see them taking the surrender strategy to a whole new level.

What we are doing next
The Gun Safety Action Plan will continue to expand and evolve to ensure that King County is doing everything in power to stop senseless gun violence and make our communities safer. We value you as a partner in this fight and hope you will share your ideas and solutions with us here.
State law restricts our ability to enact many common sense changes that would go a long way toward preventing mass shootings.
Which is why:
It's time to lead or get out of the way
The Washington State Legislature enacted a preemptive ban on local jurisdictions from making laws that might limit the sale or possession of firearms in our state.
If the state preemption law is repealed, the King County Gun Safety Action Plan will immediately:
Ban semi-automatic, high velocity weapons: Ban the sale and possession of semi-automatic, high velocity weapons
Ban high capacity ammunition magazines: Ban the sale and possession of high capacity ammunition magazines

Macron Easily survived a no-confidence vote. He did better than May did pre-Brexit vote.
The Yellow Vests are asking for less taxes on themselves and more taxes on other people.

If they were rioting for the French government to stop infringing their Natural Rights (all of them) I'd be more disposed towards them. As it is though, I only find it interesting that a "More for me, less for thee" government is finding their yoke of oxen to be troublesome.
I expect no real changes... Even if there is a change of head of state and gov, no real and meaningful changes. I'd love to be surprised though... And I have zero animosity towards the French people. The jokes about their easy surrenders can be amusing, but the reality is far different. They won WW1 with late 19th century tactics and equipment, and lost WW2 in the opening salvo because they relied on what worked for them in WW1.
The French are by and large good humans.

Not all of the demands by the Yellow jackets are being publicized. There is an element that is protesting the UN Migration Accord and the unlimited migration that has been allowed previously. This isn't covered by the MSM (Just like here, when 1639 was purported to just be about enhanced BGC's).

Here's a story by Zero Hedge about some other groups that are weighing in. Remember: this isn't some centrally led and organized protest. It is something disseminating from the populace at large so there are many messages and opinions to be heard.

(Don't look at this at work. There are boobies pictured within the story, but it's the "news" and European, so it's okay.)

Does U.S. media even mention this anymore?

I read a few interesting things about the Yellow Vests in today's WSJ.
1. They're back after a lull over the holidays.
2. They're trying to stay somewhat apolitical, due to being comprised of solid left and solid right political folks. Trying to be overtly political will split them in half.
