    The French government is to inject 10.5 billion euros into the six
    biggest banks in the country, Finance Minister Christine Lagarde
    announced on Monday

    Hey HEMI- I'll let you google for their GDP. The CIA site looks the best
    bet.

    Nothing like some French FROGfrancs thrown at the problem to only make
    things worse on the FROGpond.

    And you were doing so well, Aardvark! Sigh, you fell off the
    wagon. now, see the <grin>?

    I almost missed this one but spotted your name. Still looking for
    an E-mail and given name. I will respond.

    Now, as to the French, don't know what their GDP is but I have to
    believe that 10.5 euro is a pretty small percentage. A better
    question might be - are you ready to take the bait? - how and why
    would such a Socialist state even need a bailout of infusion of
    capital? Wouldn't the "to each according to their needs, from
    each according to their ability" banks simply volunteer to help
    the good people they screwed over?

    I've listened to Christine Lagarde once or twice trying to look
    like she was supporting President Bush in his attempts to get the
    G7 and G20 to support a broad governmental and central bank
    bailout scheme/scam to augment that of our guy, Treasury Sec.
    Hank Paulson.

    Oh, well, try to have a nice day in spite of the continuing doom
    and gloom.

    I've never particularly liked the French from years of personal
    contact, but really!

    Pretty vague description (or non-existant) of what actually gets *done*
    with the money. More so than scrub brush's version. Differences's are
    *bound* to be numerous.

    You're right for once.

    I copied and pasted an entire email into my OP. I get headline emails a
    number times every day from the same source. If I want to find the story
    behind any of these headlines I'll check the BBC.

    Why don't you try that instead of stating the bleeding obvious?

    I have no fucking idea what that means. I get the headlines via email- no
    story, just headlines. By the time I get these emails, the BBC (British
    Broadcasting Corporation) website usually has at least the breaking news
    behind them. If one of the headlines is of interest to me I will check
    out the story with the BBC. I didn't in this case. Got it?

    Most probably. But if you want to know why not search for the details
    yourself?

    I don't form opinions by some editors choice of wording of a headline. Likewise
    I don't make political decisions be relying on what the journalists decide
    we will understand about the bill they're talking about. I rely on the
    *text* of the actual bill if I care enough to worry about it. Any other
    medology is faulty due to unwarrented assumptions.

    The fact is a) neither are the country I live in and b) the bill will be
    continually changed until about 5 minutes before they vote it into law in
    both countries. Such is the state that democracy has degraded to.
