"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Rioting and unrest have forced the closure of the US Embassy....in France.

The US embassy in Paris has been closed to the public for security reasons, as tens of thousands of demonstrators haven taken to the streets to protest against pension reform plans, State Department officials said.

"We thought it would be a prudent move, given that there are about 50,000 people protesting in the vicinity," one official said. "People are still working inside, but we have closed to the public for the day."
