If you buy a car and keep using it for some years, should you also expect the maker to cease supporting their product just because there are newer models? No, right? Then Microsoft should likewise continue to provide support even as the OS is replaced by newer versions.

Considering that many companies, organizations, and individuals still using XP, Microsoft has some responsibility for the damages because of their decision to end support. I can only imagine how much the litigation is going to cost old Billy Gates.

What? Gangsters doing illegal things, such as even being a gang member? I'm shocked! And another person ignored the law prohibiting owning/possessing a handgun, and the other law prohibiting attempted murder? It's almost as if the laws fail to deter the criminal acts! Shocked! Shocked, I say!

If you haven't driven on expressways recently, at the entrances there are arrows pointing the correct direction painted on the pavement AND affixed to the medians or whatever is there. This man apparently was NOT looking. Yes, there are far too many elderly, senile drivers out on the roads.

What is this guy smoking?

""The presence of the far-right in the second round did not prompt a lot of mobilisation compared to the first round, in contrast to what happened in 2002," Jadot said in reference to the election where Le Pen's father Jean-Marie saw voters of all stripes mobilise to block him by backing his opponent, conservative Jacques Chirac."

Almost every other party leader, all the media, and moneyed elitists loudly

@pacint, the final numbers will be about 75% turnout. The numbers I posted above were "as of 5pm".

Posted in: France tries to keep Macron email hack from distorting election See in context

And it's a rather shallow victory considering the low voter turnout.

 as of 5pm, the French voter participation was 65.3%, which is the lowest in presidential elections going back at least all the way to 1988:

2017 : 65.30%

2012 : 71.96%

2007 : 75.11%

2002 : 67.62%

1995 : 66.07%

1988 : 70.63%

And according to a separate accounts, the voter turnout was the lowest going back all the way to 1974.

Indeed, the result is as expected. The party of Hollande has their new leader, that despite the abysmal approval rate of Hollande. Lefty begets lefty.

But don't expect any real improvements.

I personally think that both candidates are deeply flawed, but Macron is the far more deeply flawed of the two.

Let's evaluate the comment of mr/ms coskuri, shall we? Rather than address the issue of the actual defective ballot packages, this person made a lame attempt at ad hominem. The reality is that many voters have likewise received similarly defective ballot packages. Perhaps indeed there is or will be an investigation, however the outcome may be irrelevant anyway. Let's hope that the actual French are the victors and not victims of the globalists.

@PTownsend, you probably won't be able to find anything on Google. Several of my friends in France have told me that in the envelopes they received there was a synopsis for both candidates, but both ballot papers were for Macron. About 8 of my friends.

Anyone who points a gun, even a toy gun that looks like a real one, is asking to be shot. It's not new, and has long been known as "suicide by cop".

The tragedy is the impact on the family of the deceased and the police officer(s).

It's a tragedy to be sure.

I personally think that France is already too far gone, a basketcase of a lost cause, but there's a glimmer of hope if LePen is elected. There have been many reports of defective ballot packages with only two ballots for Macron (not one for each candidate).
