You Don't Know You're Being Invaded

The Invasions of France.

the 1746 War of the Austrian Succession, Austria-Italian forces supported by the British navy attempted to invade southern France

the 1870 Franco-Prussian War, Prussian forces invaded France due to tensions regarding Prussia's growing influence in central Europe
the 1905 Schlieffen Plan, the German Empire's strategic plan for victory in a two-front war against France and Russia

the World War II invasion
May 10, 1940, Battle of France, started by Nazi Germany's invasion of the Ardennes and the Low countries
2016-2017. Invasion by Muslims.
The first invasion by Muslims was 10 October 732. The Muslims were defeated at
The Battle of Tours by Charles Martel's army, which at the time was the strongest army in all of Europe. I would venture a guess that not 10% of French citizens today know who Charles was and what he did for France.

The present and many past governments didn't get it and still don't to this day.

Author's Note:  No one should think that this Post pertains merely to France.  Many other countries are being invaded today.  You know who you are!

You Don't Turn Lights On When Foggy.

Today, I drove to another town approximately 1 1/2 hours away. All along the route, there was heavy fog, but many cars did not have their headlights on.
Especially on a foggy day or during twilight hours, although headlights will not help you see better, you can  BE SEEN better.
Many darker colored cars were not seen until they were about 100 ft. or less away. If I had tried to pass, by the time I would have seen them it would have been impossible to avoid a head-on collision. Lights on low-beam, please.
It's so I can see you, so I don't kill you . . . and myself--Thank you.
NOT to see better, but to BE SEEN better--so I don't kill you and that cowardly passenger in your car that was too afraid to tell you, "Hey stupid, put on your headlights, in low-beam so the other drivers can SEE US better."
