Coronavirus Paris: Police check shoppers obeying lockdown laws

All of France’s 67 million people have been ordered to stay at home at all times with no visitors, or risk steep fines or prosecution, with a few exemptions.

People are only allowed to leave home if they are armed with a self-signed certificate stating their urgent business – food shopping, taking the kids to school, going to work if this cannot be done from home, going to the hospital or a pharmacy.

Citizens are also allowed out for one hour of exercise a day within a half-mile of home. Restaurants and cafes are shuttered, apart from those that offer takeout. Those found breaking the rules risk a fine of 135 euros.

Ah yes the French:Coronavirus France: Escape from Paris: City is gridlocked as tens of thousands flee, stations are packed, violent protests break out and shelves are stripped ahead of month-long lockdown that BANS travel
Thousands of Parisians caused massive traffic jams as they tried to flee the French capital for the country
Huge numbers of locals attempted a mass exodus in a bid to avoid the start of the second national lockdown

    Wonderful. I can see the emails flying between Inslee and Newsom now:

    “Yo Gavs, we just gonna let the French show us up like that?”
    “No way, Jay, we can lock this sucker down tighter than Biden’s Poligrip. Hold my kombucha.”

    I suspect the French jailing their citizens, national lockup , doesn’t extend to the hundreds of no go zones (751, at last count.), muslim enclaves.

    I’ve got a mix of French and Irish ancestry and I knew a few of pure blood when I was a kid, living in the Deep South, in the 1950s. I never did like the French side very much. They seemed pissed off most of the time, disdainful of anything not French and they are proudly arrogant but the Irish were intractable, they meant what they said and it was woe unto my young ass if I made my FB Irish grandmother angry. She was loving, long suffering, genial and generous until I fiddled around and pushed her too much and because I learned not to do that after watching her explode one afternoon on a sassy female cousin, she and I enjoyed a wonderful and long term relationship. I think of her and my half French – half Irish grandfather every day.

    These miserable French citizens stun me though. I’ve seen their anger and resolve but there is something very softheaded about them over all even though their history is replete with some son-of-a-bitch who tried to conquer them.

    I know what their fury did to French Royalty in the late 1700s and that their military has produced some very tough fighting men but I swear, it seems like the entire nation has just complimentary loaded every weapon of every politician domestic enemy that they’ve permitted to enter their nation, handed them over and said ‘please destroy us’.

    Being an American veteran who hates dictatorial governments and who has lost family in every war in this nation since the Revolutionary War, except VietNam, and who has become filled with pure hatred for marxists, white and black thugs, Nazi’s and social faggotry, I have had enough and I don’t give a damn about insults from the left but I’m sick to friggin’ death of their threats.

    Like millions of others I am simply waiting and watching, remembering Patrick Henry’s almost scriptural remarks and knowing that I’m in full agreement with him.

    What Paris needs is a giant wooden rabbit stuffed with Charles Martels,to catapult their fey and traitorous Macrons into the Seine.

    Jaysus, asking a young French woman to cover her face!

    We had dueling rallies yesterday in Minnesota, which all proper media tell us is like, totally in the bag for Biden, you know. Joe had drive-in one at the State Fairgrounds. His crowd was outnmbered by the yelling and honking Trump folks. They had deliberately kept the location quiet until the last minute to avoid that, but US Senate candidate Jason Lewis revealed it and encouraged his people to show up.

    He did that because Governor/Dictator Walz and Attorney General Keith X Ellison kept playing Covid games with Trump’s rally. First it was to be at the Rochester airport. Ellison demanded to see the Covid plan (a Walz decreed requirement). The airport being a government facility, they were not willing to give St. Paul the finger. So, the rally was moved to two private companies in a nearby town. Again, Ellison demanded a plan.

    Now those companies have seen how Ellison can stomp all over companies or individuals who defy the Soros-funded Muslim lawyer, so they reluctantly backed down. It was back to the airport, with the crowd limited to 250. But a much larger crowd gathered outside the official rally, helped by a large screen showing the rally. The Star Tribune is being coy about the size, but it looked from the videos I saw to be several times what was inside.

    All that for a state that Biden has locked up.

    @Gorden: “ All that for a state that Biden has locked up.” Not necessarily.

    That bastard Ellison said, only yesterday on CNN, that PDJT has “a real chance” in Minnesota.

    STG. I saw it myself in some tweet or some such. Be of good cheer, cautiously.

    Ahhhhh, the French! Now the French gummint is/are Nazis.

    Gonna go back to the old west days (the 1950’s TV version) where the fastest gun wins.

    Muslims are allowed out for as much time as needed to behead French Infidels because, colonialism or something.
