Be Brave, French Politicians

Of course, the people are unhappy. Oh the French. Striking. Rioting. Burning a few tires. Protesting the retirement age. It is at 60. Sarkozy is aiming for 62. Oh woe, the French. Having to work until you are 62. I adore my adopted country. I'd like the system to not completely fall apart. Your current pension system is losing money. Be brave, French politicians. Vote the darn thing into law despite the insanity.

  1. I was thrilled at their courage! The math didn't lie. It is certainly for the best. It has also made me seriously look at our own Social Security woes. Tough actions must and will be made. Hopefully, we will take care of business before our own hands are forced.
