    In the same way laws against harassment and bullying are enforced.

    Absolutely France should do that. It'll keep them busy and out of our hair.

    The political authorities in the United States are currently those jackasses that are enamored of everything Europe does. It behooves you as an American to pay attention to what those fools over there do because next year the fools over here will try to copy them.

    Only people who didn't have a backbone in the first place can be damaged by verbal abuse.

    Then again, we are discussing France.

    If we could outlaw "passive-agressive bull****", that would make my life alot easier.

    We need to outlaw the phrase passive-aggressive. Everytime I hear it I want to puke.

    Men don't usually get the crap kicked out of them when they tell their female abuser to just STFU. When a woman tells her male abuser to just STFU, she will, in many cases, pay for opening her mouth with a beating.
