House keeping time again. I've added the links to Moonlighting Escort and On Her Mind to the Soiled Doves and after promising Zamski weeks ago I'd add Anonymous Sex to my sidebar I've finally have done so.

Mercurial Girl was informed earlier today that she is a bitch and that I should take my liberal ideas and go back to America. This from a girl who several weeks ago asked if I could refer her to any agencies that were hiring.

My transgression? I expressed the opinion that not only did I feel that the change in the law regarding the retention of young workers was fine, but I also advocated another proposal that would allow companies who have ten or fewer employees to hire and fire at will.

Very spring like here, but still raining.

Sounds pretty damn reasonable to me Kim. It's a compromise that perhaps the powers that be will be praying for in a few weeks time.

But some of the younger set never developed much in the way of a well thought out political philosophy, most often it's just reactionary. They see 'all the fuss', they don't understand it, and are repulsed by it all. They then have the duty to inform themselves as citizens, especially if a voter. As the girl may be neither, she thinks she has the right to sneer at things she does not only does not understand but also willingly not try to comprehend if given a chance. It's the typcial American response from many folks on either side of the Atlantic I suspect.

I also think the perfect response to that remark is to smile, tip your head and say 'Only when I have to be sweetie!' Cheers & Good Luck! 'VJ'

no wonder France and rest of Europe has such high employement because they enjoy a stringent social safety net. Eventually they will be left in the dust by developing countries who are more competitive.

You've committed no sin for expressing your opinion. And aren't the French suppose to be more liberal than us, Americans? Bleh to them... Just to clarify, did you propose "fire at will" or fire with a reason?

pete, you mean France and the rest of Europe have high unemployment, not employment. Unless you were being sarcastic...
