    Instead of taking cheap shots at me why not actually bring some real content to the table... do you know what the French have been protesting in the last few years?.. of course you don't. If you're an American I doubt you would even be able to find France on a world globe unless it was written out. My argument is sadly valid because most Americans don't really regard Europe in any realistic way. Ask the American next to you who the PM of any european country is... 99 out of a 100 won't even be able to name a one. Those are the facts plain and simple.

    every thread is like a war these days... Who the hell cares about Americans and French in a MEDITATION thread......

    Sparrow you don't believe in souls you don't believe in spirits... What the hell you are doing in this thread? To say your opinion that is against meditation is ok, but to talk about ****ing america in this thread is nonsence...

    I mean come on give us a break for God's shake... its enough...

    I'm all for him shutting up and playing nice with the other kiddies, but I don't think meditation is limited to the spiritual. I meditate, and I'm probably the least spiritual person I know ^^. I find it helps me keep control when I direly require it, and calm down when the idiots who I must coexist with are present.

    Im not an American Im Greek, and since my country is in the EU like France I may know a bit more about what French people or any citizen of a European country is going through these days and whether they have a reason to protest or not, than you. And how about stop assuming things and generalizing facts? Its childish and naive. Unless you are 12.

    Ah, that answers plenty... another Greek socialist who feels a kinship to the whiny french who protest, not for liberty or against tyranny, but for government benefits and guaranteed jobs for life. You should meditate on these things.

    You amuse me :) Do you even know the meaning of the words "socialist", liberty", "tyranny", "government benefits", "guaranteed jobs", "life", "meditate" or did you just picked them up in a dictionary and put them together to form a sentence that makes no sense whatsoever?

    I didn't bring up France and what we Americans might thing of the French... Kelmourne brought it up.
    Once he put it on the table, it's fair game.

    And wow, you're the christian guy who meditates to his make believe God, right?
    It doesn't seem to be working very well... and that is odd isn't it?
    The one person on this thread who doesn't meditate at all, me, can remain cool and collected and carry on a conversation without cursing or angry outbursts. Yet you all, who presumably meditate on a regular basis, can't seem to deal with somebody who doesn't agree with you.

    So I think we've all learned something important here... meditation is regressive, fosters dissociation, and neglects the unconscious.

    It seems to me that you are the one that cant seem to deal with someone that doesnt agree with you. That must be why you provoke everyone around by telling lies, making faulse assumptions and making fun of their beleifs, countries and opinions. You are also a manipulative person lying in order to get your point, because as I said earlier in the thread I dont meditate either, and I am the only one with the angry outbursts in here so this:

    is invalid.

    You're doing it again.
    You haven't actually made any comments other than saying I don't know what I'm talking about. So I'll try it again... I'm asking you, Sevi, what are the French protesting, what have they been protesting in the last three years?

    Here's the answer in case you can't handle a real conversation...

    The French protesting a hike in the retirement age...
    http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/2010-10-19-france-strikes-violence_N.htm


    The French protesting pension reform...
    http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503543_162-20020295-503543.html


    The French protesting, and on strike for the government to make job security a number one priority...

    I'm dealing with it just fine.

    And if you're going to call me a liar, than perhaps you need to point out those lies instead of posting mealy-mouthed nonsense.

    Better yet, PM me and we'll carry on this discussion off thread.

    So French people protest for their rights? They protest so they wont have to pay the crisis that the banks brought to their country and that doesnt take balls but it takes some nerve? That's what you are telling me?

    And what about the French Revolution? What about the French protests against the war? What about all the other things the French protested about throughout the years?

    Please Sparrow just answer me two things. How old are you and have you ever worked in your life?

    I told you, you said that you were the only one that is no meditating and the only one without angry ourburts. That was a lie.

    We're not talking "throughout the years" or events that took place over two hundred years ago.
    This is about modern day France and what the citizens of that country are motivated to protest against.

    I'm on the wrong side of 40 and have worked full time since leaving High School. In fact I've never been out of a job my entire adult life. I work ridiculous hours with very little time off and have a 401k account that would knock your socks off. Aside from that, I own a home in the historic district that I'm currently renovating, I drive a modified Corvette, and prefer Puerto Rican Rum over Scotch Whisky.

    I always pictured you as a 12 year old....but you are an adult. That is so sad. What ever happened to your life for you to come to this forum and act this way?

    Then you'll have little trouble copying and pasting whatever that "angry outburst" was... where is that post of mine?

    And then I said (if you cared to actually read my comments) that I also dont meditate and Im the ony one with the "angry outbursts" in this forum. So your comment was invalid.

    Once again you're 'name calling' and making personal attacks on my character... and really, it doesn't bother me in the least, it's fine with me.



    And exactly what is it that you do for a living, have a job?.. do you own a home or live with your parents?

    To summarize, you do indeed stereotype all french people.
