    Why France is the land where the sun never setteles

    Post  Aristide on Sat Dec 01, 2018 8:54 pm

    I think any dont know how enormous France is and why we control the largest ocean zones.



    You all know our central country



    But who of you knows that France is the only country on the planet to have land on evry continental plate?

    We have Adélie Land at Antarctica





    Beside several other islands in the south indian ocean we also have the lagest one. Kerguelen





    Îles Crozet



    And we also have an island in Canada called Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon

    Sounds like a bit of British Commonwealth envy going on... even little poor New Zealand has tiny rocks in the Pacific that call themselves dependencies that leach money from us for no real practical return... not really something to boast about to be honest.

    Can France rig elections world wide like Putin can?

    Can France murder people with the most deadly substances known to man that only kill old drug addicts, at will like Putin can?

    Sounds like someone is feeling a bit insecure... is it the riots?

    Actually not. The british commonwealth is not a state. Infact our south american area alone is greater than Scotland. Smile

    If we can rig elections like Putin can? Are you kidding me?

    Our former african colonies still pay us money for being our former colonies. Madagascar pays France each year 350 Million €. Madagascar is incredible poor...and pays its former colonial master.

    We rig elections, murder presidents. In Mali and Niger ...nobody hears yu scream. Smile

    We blow up ships in New Zealand. A western country we call ally. You should not ask what we do to 3rd world shitholes.

    Ohh, wow... but the british colonies included the US and India and Canada and South Africa and Australia... add those populations and land areas together and France is a pipsqueak.

    If we can rig elections like Putin can? Are you kidding me?

    Didn't you know?

    Putin controls all elections around the world... CNN told me... and so did the BBC... and when I say BBC I mean the British Broadcasting Corporation... not big black cock.

    Wow, you still keep slaves... no wonder the world loves France...

    Yes, you follow the rules of the west... public face morality and civilisation and behind closed doors a bastard of the lowest order.

    We blow up ships in New Zealand. A western country we call ally. You should not ask what we do to 3rd world shitholes.

    As you said... even the sun wont turn its back on france even for a second... and with very good reason... but why don't the Russians treat the french like the special people they are?

    U forgot to mention the Clipperton Island.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clipperton_Island

    U claim Adélie Land in Antarctica, but it's not urs yet!
    To be fair, the UK has claims there too + many islands in S. Atlantic, S. Pacific, & the Indian Ocean. The British Isles r on the European Plate & during the last Ice Age there was no North Sea & English Channel.
    Also, when the Sun sets in Moscow, it's already down on Kamchatka; thus, the Sun rays never leave Russia as well.

    Again you show your idiocy.

    The commonwealth is independend nations.

    Ours is our land. Ruled from Paris.

    Putin controls not even a functional bus system in Moscow and resides over a rotten country.

    As for the rest of your bla bla.

    You have to learn a fundamental thing. The world exists to serve us. Countries like Niger, Mali or Madagascar...they exist because we allow it and would end if we demand it.

    And thats teh difference between your commonwealth and our former colonies. In your former lands they kill british people like in Simbabwe or South Africa.

    In our former colonies like Madagascar or Niger, they treat us like gods. We rule over them and tehy pay us.

    This goes so far that we force them to make national parks like Lokobe forest. We love nature. The people of madagascar show that they are too stupid to rule themself. Its better we decide for them.

    No it doesn't! That's chauvinistic propaganda of "the white man's burden" mantra.
    What about the former French India/Indochina, Haiti & Algeria? Did they love u too? A golden cage is still a cage! The r not ur colonies anymore because the majority there wasn't French to begin with.

    Think the French State may be a little overstretched.

    Perhaps you ought to forget those overseas dreams and do something about the riots, again, in Paris, the centre of your fading world.

    There is even talk of firing live rounds at your own citizens. Sacre bleu!

    No it doesn't! That's chauvinistic propaganda of "the white man's burden" mantra.

    Sadly it is an attitude quite popular amongst the hard core western elite... America interferes in most elections world wide, but the suggestion that Russia might have had the tiniest influence that didn't even change a single vote and the over reaction is hilarious... we made democracy and only we can ignore democracy for our own ends...

    Sadly the people who talk about arrogant americans need to talk to this french guy.

    Of course to be fair there are several very good members here representing France that are respectful and well educated, and knowledgeable and worth listening to (even if you don't agree with them their opinion is interesting and their view is worth hearing).

    This clown however.... clown

    Just take what he says as entertainment, knowing most of the world is still fucked up because the people who hold power in most places think just like him.

    His problem is that Russia and China don't think like that and as they expand their cooperation with the various countries of the world those countries will realise they don't have to take shit like they do with the west... they can sell stuff and profit from their own resources too... instead of getting raped and have international companies come in and pretty much steal everything for a few bribes of a few politicians and the rest of the country stays poor and undeveloped because of a few corrupt local officials and the greedy west keen to take advantage of the whole population so they can make more money.

    So what is or should be a nation ?  Imagine cosmonauts  going to Mars . With a fusion reactor . Establish a colony . Grow food . Independent  . Never  to return to Earth . Then they developed  their own language and culture and ethnicity ( The blue eyed blondes  of central Asia are not directly related to Nordics , they come about as a result of parallel  evolution or climactic  conditions - cold areas in central Asia )  . They become a nation .

    On Earth we have industries . With products that people use  . Buy and sell . They travel and visit . Developing  a similar identity  . A cosmopolitan identity  . A distinct group . A multinational nation .

    Then we have farmers . They grow food . For local consumption or for export . They depend on the land . And health of the land . A biosphere . Supporting a population . Distinct language and culture . A nation .

    Out of these groups the farmers provide the best measure of national identity  . Since we have no colonies on Mars . And can not manufacture food from Iron or coal .

    But farmers live in a biosphere  . Subject to local geography . Different crops . Animals and fish . Infact all the animals exist in a symbiotic  biosphere in this domain .

    So we can look at all resident and non-migratory animals in this domain . If we have breeding pairs . Then we have a sustainable biosphere . An area where agriculture takes place . And an area with distinct culture or a nation .

    For example I know that Scotland  is a nation , within present borders . Because there are so many birds and animals that live or not within this area . It has a different  climate and geography . For example the Tit , which is a small bird , lives in area that runs along the border with England . And no place to the north  

    Many borders come and go . Some remain . Long term .

    What is your problem with our demonstrations in Paris and whats new about it? French people dont take shit. Macron is an idiot and always was.

    We have such demonstrations evry 20 years since the last 1000 years.

    I actually enjoy Macron fall. I´m a follower of Marine Le Pen. We almost won the last presidential election, Macron only became president because all who were against us joined forces.

    Now we sit back and enjoy.

    I´m proud for my people. We are not like the stupid Germans who accept evrything. Or the dumb russians who allow Putin to screw them.

    Putin did rise retirement age in Russia so high, most wont even live to reach that age. And they take it...they accept to get ripped up. Its funny.

    They ''take it'' because even most braindead among them know that there is nothing that can be done about it because they will either raise retirement age or there will be no money for retirement

    Life expectancy grew, retirement age goes up with it, same as everywhere

    Or do you think that money comes out of thin air?

    money is printed. It has less worth than thin air actually. You obviously are unaware how the monetary system works.

    That said Putin could milk his oligarchs and pump that money into retirement funds. Very Happy

    The US can still print $, because of the size of its economy, but Russia can't or it'll create inflation like in Venezuela. So they have to count their $. The retirement age is being raised not because there is/will be no $ in the pension fund; rather there r not enough people to work.

    Wrong. The only reason why USA can print is because dollar is the reserve currency.
    The only reason why dollar is the reserve currency is because, in an unprecedented move in human history,
    in 1945 all realms that were more advanced than stone age, but Soviet Union, united their forces against their own national interests, to support USA domination.
    Now the same forces keep backing USA blindly, but new colossal forces, raised above antiquity and slowly but certainly put Europe and their descendants in the back pedal for the first time since Achaemenid empire.
    If an alien civilization visit Earth, this will sum up pretty well the current state of events for them.

    Only in ur dreams. Any currency that isn't backed by gold is being printed, but to an extent. The USSR & Russia did it to, resulting in several devaluations. "Any paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value, which is 0".
    http://www.goldtelegraph.com/paper-money-eventually-returns-to-its-intrinsic-value-zero/
    Historically speaking every country that engaged in the practice of printing unbacked paper money (not redeemable in a set amount of one commodity or another) has undergone a monetary collapse. Austria-Hungary, Russia, Argentina et al. See hyperinflation. ..
    Let's consult an expert. "In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation." - 1966. "What is fascinating is the extent to which gold still holds reign over the financial system as the ultimate source of payment," - 2009. Alan Greenspan, Federal Reserve Chairman (1987-2006)

    Dollar is not backed by gold, nor ruble, not any other currency, and they never were in reality. For some reason there is a fixation in USA public opinion about gold, but it is totally unsubstantiated. You clearly have no idea how currency valuation works, but this was a zero content post, not typical of you.

    Why not.... are you going to spend 3 times more and get US LNG?

    The expansion of China means gas sales to Asia make more money and gas sales to europe are declining in value.

    BTW Russia does not make the gas... it just extracts it... a bit like selling you air... but they aren't charging you a lot... for now.

    I don't know why you polute the forum with this pretty elementary information, especially since it's partially true, at best, and totally irrelevant with my initial arguments anyway. 

    Dollar was never backed by gold. You can't have stock market valuation and fixed value currency at the same time, except if your market is overwhelmingly determined by the flows of a single commodity, which was/is not the case of course. 

    Bretton Woods abandoned, in1971, simply because other powers (mainly France) was intending finally to take advantage of this basic fact.

    Do I have to give you finance courses for long? You seem to be fed by unnecessary controversies. Be careful what you read in economic sites, people try to get advantage of the ignorance and naivety of others for their own profit there.

    dude you get annoying as fuck

    China is a 3rd world shithole country where 80%of the population live under worse conditions than poultry in a french chicken farm.

    I advice you to visit China. Majority lives like animals.
