Why are French citizens rioting - - what's wrong with gasoline at $7.00 a gallon, BEFORE Macron's new tax kicks in?



It is very simple,for ordinary people taxes never go down they always go up.Even when they repeal a tax they add others so any tax lost is recouped elsewhere and very often suplimented with stealth taxes. People are bitterly pissed off now,because their take home pay diminishes yearly yet they have to pay more just to live.....I hate France and its people but in this they are 100% correct.


Lots of different reasons really I think many of them haven't connected the dots...if they had they'd be anticapitalist

Attention Global Warming alarmists - this is what happens when states take action on global warming. The only solution to global warming is to destroy First World economies with a 50% or higher increase in fuels, utilities and food. Your electronics, clothes and appliances will be protected because they are made in China.


The only French citizens I know of are Manuel Ferrara, Liza del Sierra, Anissa Kate, Angell Summers, and Clara Morgane. Are they safe?


Fuel prices have little to do with it. These are all organized by the right-wing supporters of LePen. They just want Macron out.


The French are rioting because they are lazy and don't want to work.


Those stupid Frogs are finally getting it through their thick skulls that Socialism COSTS BIG MONEY !!! Absolutely NOTHING is "free." And just think: a lot of trolls in the U.S. actually claim that "Europeans are happier and better-off under Socialism." HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Becuase Macron is a liar and a crook. He and Merkle are both neo-imperialists (which is why they hate nationalism), and Europe is getting sick of it. Shoulda voted Le Pen.


This is politics section. I suggest you move this to another section.


For some reason people resent the government robbing them of more of their hard earned cash to combat something that isn't happening (man made global warming)
