Comments on the Passing Scene #1

French President Emmanuel Macron

French President Emmanuel Macron

Editor’s note. From time to time, Simone sends us short commentary like the one below. We will publish the most interesting of these. These thoughts came in response to the Macron victory in the French election.

I am glad France has reversed course. I am glad Macron is pro-European. But why? oh why? couldn’t we do it here? Why do we have to put up with these Mafia criminals in the White House? And who will have the guts to sack them?

Our current resident makes Nixon look like a saint and George W like a genius. (and Marine Le Pen like a nuisance)

I guess we can thank our overly long campaign season and our electoral system for our woes.

Macron was a dark horse but perhaps will prove to be a good one.

Please don’t call Donald Trump our Mafia President… it makes the Mafia look bad.

Vive la France!… oh wait, that was old chant… new French chant is: Allah Akbar!

P.S. If any real French want to migrate to Russia now for a better life – you are welcome. =)

How come there is no long waiting line to migrate to Russia?

There is huge line to migrate to Russia from Ukraine. People run from Ukrainian neo-Nazis. Since Ukraine is in visa-free regime with EU now, you may call it migration from Europe to Russia. =)

P.S. And of course, I must mention Gerard Depardieu, who has Russian passport. I think, he is very good man and great actor. I was raised on his movies. <3

I think honestly that #45 is helping the cause of liberalism globally. Many who thought to vote for Gert in the Netherlands changed their minds after seeing the disaster of Trump.

Merkel was on the ropes in December (or at least, not in a very strong position) and now –

Maybe we had to be the sacrificial lamb?

I think that the general public is apathetic when it comes to politics and we’re now paying the price. I think that some people feel that by not voting they are making a statement against the government. I hope the current crisis our country is in right now will open your eyes. We have to make sure to remove Trump and all of his cronies from the office or we will continue to spiral downwards.
