MSNBC finally found France

In a news report early this morning, MSNBC noticed that some 3.5 million residents of France were demonstrating in the streets against raising the retirement age from 60 to 62.

In the U.S. the current age is 66 with a law change leading to 67.

There was no mention of the strike affecting the supplies of airline fuel, a huge number of schools closed, or how supplies of goods and services are being affected.

MSNBC doesn’t want to report too much. It might seem that raising the retirement age for working people is an important issue and might infect the ideas of otherwise sedated Americans, including our children and grandchildren who may see their Social Security cut by Obama’s deficit commission under Alan Simpson.

MSNBC owner, General Electric, this past week reported an increase in net profits of 29%, proving that not everyone is suffering in a depression.
