RE: French opposition to the EU? WTF?

KV,
That particular error of Christianity is dying out. I am referring to dispensationalism. They had expected that within one generation of the formation of the state of Israel, that Jesus would return amd remove the church and begin the 7 years of the tribulation. Since that did not happen, the movement in dying out. You may not see it for a while since you are located in one of the epi=centers of the movement--Dallas.

You did not fight for the social advances that you are benefiting from. You are of chinese descent, and not immigrants of long date.

RE: French opposition to the EU? WTF?

The Euro Constitution might just be a brilliant idea, but at 300 pages, who could tell? I cannot imagine how many internal contradictions it must have. Nobody can write a 300 page document on any one subject without contradiction. Contradiction makes bad law. Simplify that thing to 5-10 pages. Use lots of small words and short sentences. Drop adjectives and adverbs like they were a pox. I'll bet folks would read it, understand it, and be able to support it. Untl the common voter can understand it, I doubt you'll get support for it.

That's it?

You do not care to comment on your outrageous claims?

Post in French! I'll translate for the benefit of the other members here. Unless "you are not write french very good" either, even so, I'll manage if you can substantiate your claims with references to articles in "Le Figaro" or "Le Monde" depending on your political sensibilities. I would not exclude "L'humanité" when I read your prose, but then again, you do have a nice AMG costume. Could be you prefer to read "Minute" and have a shrine to Jean Marie LePen at your house.

I feel so miserable without you; its almost like having you here.

A growing movement in Italy

wants to return to the Lira and dispose of the Euro.

England seems to have been the visionary in the lot, not wanting to relinquish monetary policy was just an excuse...

Yes it is, hence the title to my post.

England never adopted the Euro (hence, the past tense used in seems to "have been" the visionary which should have hinted that i was talking about somehting similar, but different, in this case, a different country), never relinquisjhng the sovereignty of the British pound, allowing them to conserve policy making authority within their borders, for example interest rates setting policy, control of the monetary mass, with the Bank of England never having to suboirdinate itself to the European Bank for such policies (the adoption of the Euro necessitates the abandon of all such policies which would then become European prerogatives, and affect the whole Euro zone). This allows England to boost their economy independantly.

Since you are a funny (and intelligent) guy, I'm willing to entertain that your comment was sarcastic in nature, in which case: [:D]

Mea culpa. I didn't read your title and so, connected the previous posts (in my mind) to yours. Doing so led me to completely misunderstand yours which segue'd nicely into my stating the obvious and sounding sarcastic about it.

Oh well. I've had better days.

Mea culpa.
Conversing on a forum suffers many lacks, not the least of which is visual(s).
I'm willing to accept your admission of guilt as an apology if you can post a picture of yourself pounding your chest with your fist in contrition, and if you would, please, make sure you insert the appropriate "maxima", given the nature of your affront. [:D][:D]

Here's another pic of me (you've already seen me in my AMG costume above)[;)]

England announced they would suspend

the referendum on the ratification of the European Constitution until the consequnces of the "No" votes in France and The Nederlands are fully understood.

Conservatives in the UK now insist that the EU constitution, which they had deemed bad for the UK and had vehemently opposed, is now dead, and only maintained on life support by the European bureaucrats in BXL.
