A republic, not a democracy

And it's the Fifth Republic (Cinquième République which would be the Fünfte Reich auf Deutsch!).  It has been the Fifth Republic since the 4th of October 1958!

Vive la France!
Vive la Cinquième République!


  1. A great scene from a great film, but let's recall that Captain Renault and Rick don't go off to start a movement of non-violent protests. And to recall an earlier discussion, no, Dog Gone, they also aren't lovers.

  2. Thanks for posting this! Yes we are a Republique....And we are non sectarian, no religious denomination can own property here. No matter what your libertarian buddies might whine, we have just about the best health care in the world, the lowest infant mortality rate on the planet and it's going to stay that way. Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys? Excuse me, I having another big stinky slab of Epoisses! The Prince of Cheese!
