The Yellow Vest Movement that began in France, is spreading. It appeared also in Belgium and it spread to Canada as well. The French arrested the leaders of the Yellow Vest Movement calling them an anti-government charging them for organizing an unauthorized protest, as authorities adopt a tougher approach to try to curb the demonstrations.

In France, the Yellow Vests have forced the Macron government to increase the minimum wage and take baby steps toward tax reform. This week, they called on people to pull cash from the banks-an easier thing for them to do than commit to marching in the streets, and a collective action that could precipitate a financial crisis, and add to the movement's leverage.

Not only has Canada joined the Yellow Vest Movement, but it's still going strong every weekend, Christmas, New Years, the protests against rising socialism continue. Trudeau might have his work cut out for him before the next election in Canada in October 2019.

Will it keep spreading? If so, how far will it spread? It would be really nice if it would spread around here...

In France, many people, including police, show support of the movement by displaying their vest in the front window of their car.

Amazon sells mesh yellow vests, 10 for $23.

Janet, if you would, please buy a hundred million or so and I will pitch in and help spread them around here.

Actually Janet! It would great if people would start wearing yellow vests all over this country. Maybe things would start to happen!


Right now, I think I am going to buy some of those yellow vests. Do you think I could get anyone else to wear yellow vests along with me?

You know what? I would bet just about everybody would think I just want to not get hit by a car ... they probably are not even aware of the yellow vests in France.

Thanks for tossing me into a coughing fit of laughter, David Watts!

Second time today! :) :)

~~~I don't think 100 million, but I AM gonna buy that 10-pack.

And when I can get out of the doggone house, I'm gonna start wearing a vest on my errands; even my upcoming appts.

Let's Do It!

In Colorado, they'll think you want to not get hit by a car. In Calif., they'll think this white-haired lady thinks she works for the Transportation Dept.

You're right. 99% won't even be aware of the Yellow Vests. But other European countries are catching on and joining. Let's do the same. If anybody cares to ask about the vest, it will be our opportunity to speak up. We can say we've joined the French movement, and letting our own government know we're tired of being ripped off and sick of gov't representation for only the rich.

Hey! We can work together on a one-page handout in case anybody asks. If they read it and want to talk, we will talk. If they punch us in the face, we'll bounce back after a couple days. Whaddya think?? :)

We can do what the MSM won't even touch (except the staged Paris violence)

PS. If this catches on, wanna bet the US Legislature passes a law against wearing yellow vests? On the grounds either of 1. impersonating a transportation worker; or 2. unfair protection against getting hit by a car.

Or 3. it's anti-Semitic.

Janet, now is the time for all good men to not come to the aid of their country and do wear yellow vests. Women too.

If I get arrested for any of the three possible violations that the US legislature passes for wearing yellow vests that you and J have said could happen, I will appeal it all the way to the Supreme Court and probably lose. But I will have made my point. I will be sitting in prison hoping both you and J will come visit me. If not both, hopefully one...

Do not know why you thanked me but you are welcome for tossing you into a coughing fit of laughter. I hope you recovered.

Maybe I will not get any prison time. Maybe I will get only community service. With my yellow vest I would be able to hold out my arms to stop cars and let little kids cross the street on their way to school. Not so bad, eh? :)

Janet, I was 100% in with you until you said they might punch us in the face.

There is something about the things you say that makes me laugh. If you would, please hold off on saying those kinds of things again. I don't like it when my belly hurts. Please understand. Ok? You make me smile. :)

By the way, I would bet they make yellow vests for small happy dogs... :)
