France! Liberté, égalité and a whole lot of communism
Mind you, I’m not talking about regular Frenchmen, the kind you meet on the streets. I mean their elected leadership, people which, through a process that escapes me completely, are ever more masculine and possessing of very strong personalities.
In the wake of the huge scandal sparked by the French Football Federation info leak, a just reaction if you ask me – I find it rather odd to say that “there are too many blacks in the national team” and come up with a D-day for “thinning their ranks” even though your country has several colonies in existence, after the idiotic ruling that outlawed wearing or displaying religious symbols in public (does wearing wear a cross necklace get you arrested?) and many, many other stupid laws carelessly tossed around by French legislators, the people must get ready for something even more outrageous.
Soon, speeding may get you imprisoned if you go above the legally established limit by 30 mph or more. Don’t fret though, you won’t stay there for too long, just 3 months, to give you enough time to think about the “generous” fine and the penalty points you got as a bonus. To make things go as smoothly as possible, it was decided to ban radar detectors and implement crippling fines for people who sell them (plus jail time, naturally). So you can get scanned anytime by the Police but your right to be informed about it is denied, because you’re just an insignificant fool. Luckily, the government knows what’s best for you. Smart thinking, right?
As if all this wasn’t already more than enough, these guys didn’t see it necessary to display radar warnings anymore either, so all the associated traffic signs who helped temper the unlucky drivers who happened across a monitored area will likely disappear.
What can I say, those signs probably had another, more detrimental, effect upon tax collection, hence the brutal “solution”. The officially stated purpose? To cut down on accidents. The final purpose? Giving a solid fine to any unsuspecting bloke who dares drive his car around France... because trust me, it’s just a matter of time until you make a mistake and... you’ll have a criminal record! France will probably become the country with the highest level of crime and people convicted to spend time in jail and have some of their social rights suspended for a time.
The actual purpose? Enforcing a regime of terror, to keep people in a constant state of insecurity, to bring back to flock any individual who “strays” too far away or is sufficiently distracted, jumpy or even happy out of his mind to push the pedal a bit “too much to the metal”.
I find it really hard to believe such a man exists who has (or will) never involuntarily broken the “legally established speed limit” involuntarily, especially inside areas with dumb limitations such as 18 mph or deserted “settlements” where you won’t see a human face on the streets for miles but you’re forced to stay below 30 mph.
But still, the logical question to ask is: why are 200 mph cars sold if driving speeds are limited to 30-50 mph?!? I’ve recently tested a Laguna Coupe, an extremely nice car limited to 130 mph. It’s a French car, sold by Renault, a vehicle that simply lures you into breaking the speed limit set by God knows what official who hates cars and would rather see everyone ride the bus...
So what are we going to do with the Laguna? Why would we buy a car that’s “unsafe” because it encourages drivers to “break the law”? Should we sue Renault if we end up in jail?
Well, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if an all-new regulation is being prepared right now, to block automakers from selling cars who are able to go above 70 mph on French roads. That’s probably the “final solution”.
A full-on and complete restriction, an in-depth equalization, an outright flattening in the purest communist spirit, one who still looms over France and the entire EU alike. A place that makes you want to leave for good, more and more every day...
comments written so far
This Austrlalian wont be back.
I'm not French and I am also not big fen of them, but talking about them like this it's sick. These comments are atrocious and saying that the whole EU is like communism that's just idiotic, but not as idiotic as you are because your idiotism is something that cannot be measured. Claiming that The Eiffel Tower is "a giant stake out of wrought iron initially headed for the dump", talking about history and about guillotines. You made me laugh and sad simultaneously.
I saw your other posts, you were talking about "We're going to America EU SUX". You really need to check yourself to the psychiatrist and stay a little bit in a mental institution or maybe forever. You should go to the "beloved" US, which invades countries for their oil and resources(and that's only fraction of their we're messing with everyone, everywhere politics) and blame from there that the French have had invented the guillotine. Or hate them because they're using they're own language and not the English one, even though that more than 40% of the words in the English Language originate or are influenced by the French language. You're just illiterate, bitter Hater, YES with capital "H", that tries to channel his frustration in his scribbles. Some wanna-be person, that's never been something in order to be someone, if you know what I mean???
Have a nice evening and please arrange that meeting with the psychiatrist.
I?d read only till the radars part and conclude that it wasn?t worth going further. It?s your opinion, which you have the right to have and express, and, as we say in Portugal, good deeds look good on who practice them.
Simple, but true, story. I?m a disable person and I need a wheelchair to move myself. On the small village I live in there two traffic lights either side of it, separated by about 300 m, a cross, and no straight at all, on the national that crosses it. The kind of lights that turn red when a vehicle hits the sensor with more than 50 Kms/h of speed. A good part of the drivers (those who know the place mainly) doesn?t even stop and others do it but, then, cross the village 60, 70, 80, and even 90 Kms/h. Why? First: the traffic lights don?t go after those who don?t follow the rules and they don?t have a camera to take them, (which is another smart move from our government). Second: they know that there are no authorities in place and it?s at the customers will.
Now put yourself in my place and wonder where and how one can run if something goes wrong as already has happened on the cross.
Simple question: Do you have to comply with the law only where are radars?
Have a nice life (I mean it).
You don't even know what you're talking about, you say you dislike french people, but who are u to say that? yOU know what? you are a sick man, the little geek behind his computer!
Do you know why we say liberté, égalité, fraternité? We say it because when we battled for it, a lot of people died just to hear, one day, you are free. So that kind of people who have given their life for freedom weren't communists, they were people who couldn't longer bear to be slaves! If, for you, people who want to be free and fight for it are communists, it is because you are a real RACIST!
Just try to do something else, because we don't need psychopaths like you!
So I say with great dignity, pride and joy, '' LIBERTE,EGALITE, FRATERNITE'
I could also argue on the religious signs, that you are absolutely entitled to wear anywhere except the niqab, but this is already going too far for your little brain and discredits the whole paper if you can call it a paper.
Don't know where you live, but in the States, there are places where they will automatically arrest you if you are going more than 25 mph over the posted speed limit. And they charge you with reckless endangerment, on top of the speeding ticket
And in most states, radar detectors are illegal.
You want cops to advertise that they are monitoring speed? That's what the speed limit sign is for. That's the only warning you get, and the only one you deserve. If you can't read it, or don't comprehend it, you need to pull your car off to the side of the road, put a for sale sign on it, and wait for the next bus.
If you don't like the fact that a French company makes a car that can go faster than the legal speed limit, take your gripe to the manufacturer.
Your logic is totally flawed.
Oh, and by the way -- the guillotine was developed as a more HUMANE method of execution. It is generally accepted that, with a sharp blade, there is little to no pain.
Much better than dangling at the end of a rope until you slowly suffocate. Or being shot, when the bullet might just nick an artery, and you slowly bleed to death.
Where do you live ? France ? If you do , do they invited you?
You don't like it, go back to your country. Another thing , you call your self free,
can you tell me when that started ? As fare as I know that was in the 60's when all men become free, until then it was an Racist country. Remember ?
I know few people like you , I think what it is is that Jerk like you who go to France,hope to get some, but... when the women see you, and see that you are an idiot, the only one you are going to get is the one in the red district. See what I mean jelly bean ?
