strike 2

You know that strike I was talking about?

Yesterday the pension reform bill (the reason everyones panties are in a bunch) was passed by the French Senate.

I'm going to go ahead and guess that there will be more strike action coming, so just in case, Fifty will be continuing his red wagon mush mush training.

Here's a CNN report from Paris...


Two comments about this video:

1. When the reporter got pepper sprayed The Husband said, "Is he stupid or what?" This made me laugh.

2. Thanks CNN for pointing out who the undercover cops are. I'll be sure to avoid them when I get my riot on.

(I really must try that car flipping fun)

  1. Ha! Yeah, looks like we've got a good profile on how to pick out the undercover cops...hoodie anyone?
    Love the reporter describing the pepper spray... Um, pretty good idea it would burn something fierce!
    Have you got any back-up Fifty's you can send our way? We might just need a pull-wagon ourselves :)
    bon weekend, xx

  3. Holy Smokes! (No pun intended)...what a change for the culture. Did they at least grandfather in those who were on the cusp of retiring with the previous statues? If not, we may see a stampede of sixty-something year-olds flipping cars and such.

    Beware of hood-wearing bystanders!

    PS - The endless shrimp commercial that came on before the footage has really made me hungry...

  4. Made me snort coffee, good thing I turned my head or my work laptop would be drenched. I don't think my boss would like "I was laughing at the stupidity of American news reporting" as an excuse.

  8. There will certainly be more strike action this week. I mean the union leaders wouldn't want to miss another appearance on prime time tv, now would they?
