Air France pilot's unions call for four-day strike from June 23 to June 26.
Their #%@& unions are always doing this type of BS. [...] get control of this union BS!
These are quotes (by FrogSugar
) of a thoroughly POLITICAL
nature; and therefor completely unsuitable
(and on top of that: not permitted
) on this board.
What the HELL are you talking about?! What do politics have to do with people on strike or unions?! I'm pointing out the stupidity of going on strike. If you don't like your job, fine, quit your job and find another one, don't ruin other people's rights to go to work on time or go to a Stones concert.
Furthermore, as I am French, I reserve the right to criticize my lazy fellow countryman as often as I damn well please! All of my friends are fed up with these constant strikes; they make life difficult and piss us off.
Lighten up, Keef & Mick would not support your political correctness!!!
Your choice of ‘words’ (if one prefers to call them that…) is purely (and obviously intentional) offensive
, and has NOTHING to do with “taking a stand”. It’s just blabbering
. Nor has my reaction about this anything to do with ‘political correctness’.
Bashing ‘unions’ and ‘strikes’ in general
, especially in your line of phrasing, is
a 100% political
stand. And yes: thàt I conquer (and will continue to do so) – because in our quarter of this planet (I share with you our Western European background) our very own existance of today is largely defined by collective action from people that united in times of need – and some (most of?) the times paid
for that, severely. Not just in the 19th century, but thoughout large parts of the 20th too. “If you know your history, the you would know where you’re coming from
”, right. (Somebody ought to make a song of that…)
And for your information: a strike is not
. And strikers loose
(sometimes: a lót of) money
– they definitely make (personal) sacrifices. And with a communal
perspective – for (what they see as) the better of ‘goods’ for all people.
Now I don’t want to make angels
out of them; but I wouldn’t call ‘em lazy
, nor bastards
either… And neither
Now I KNOW all this doesn’t justify just any old
strike, protest, social action etc. per definition
; and I know (as said before) that you French people have had their fair (and, no doubt, sometimes even unfair
…) share of troubles with this. But it sure as “HELL” (just to use one of your elegant phrasings) makes the complete opposite
– bashing unions & strikers for the sake of it
– completely inapropriate. ànd short-sighted. ànd OFFENSIVE.
And nó: just “being French” does NOT give you the right to be all of that – nor shoot your mouth off over here. If you have any intel or solid insight one the fine lines & tunings of this conflict: please share & enlighten me (preferably by PM - for this thread is no place for that
. My e-mail address is nót hidden.) I really would be most interested. But if that's not really the case: then you're just shooting consonants and syllables in vain, imo.THAT’S
('the hell') what I was “talking about
You want a drawing
to go with that?!
You, monsieur/madame, should (learn to) choose your words more carefully if you want to express your extremely simplistic views (“#%@& unions
”, “get control!
”, “ruin other people's rights to go to a Stones concert
”, “If you don't like your job, fine, quit your job and find another one…
”) on an internet forum that has a multitude
of different backgrounds, atitudes, opinions, convictions, ages, races, sensitivities compared to that ‘inner circle’ of you & your “friends”. Even more than compared to the whole of your FRANCE
, I might ad.
And I don’t need Mick, or Keith, or a shoutmouth like you, to ‘support’ my views or comments. In fact: I couldn’t care less about what they think of the matter.
And stop yelling
, will you? Your words read like you’re shouting them from a sports bar
Now I have a plane to Cardiff to catch.
(And oh yeah; on top of that – must not forget… – I need to “lighten up” first.)
Dormez bien, mon pôte...
