By Mike Hamlin ARE you Greek??, democracy was invented by the Ancient Greeks, by the way socialism and democracy don’t mix, they are complete opposites, socialism being government control, and democracy being people control.

By Mike Hamlin Both France and Sweden are collapsing under the weight of the eu experiment, and all the migration, and the Muslims creating no-go zones demanding free stuff from the governments.

By the way France had to be bailed out in three separate wars last century.

By William Dykeman The French economy appears to be shaking off its lethargy. According to figures from the French National Institute for Statistics (INSEE) 253,000 new jobs were created in the private sector in France last year, a rise of 1.3 percent.

The INSEE said Tuesday that the figures reflect a slight acceleration in the job market, after the creation of 234,500 jobs in 2016 and just 129,700 in 2015. France lost jobs in the three years prior to that.

The private sector accounted for a record 19.27 million jobs at the end of 2017. In the fourth quarter alone, the private sector created 53,300 jobs, up 0.3 percent.
