  1. Yessir, señor, makes sense to me. The good ole’ USA is presently on the same path. I’m likely to old to see it play out, others not so lucky.

  2. Interesting video. Given all the church attacks in France over the past few years it is logical to consider arson as the cause of the Notre Dame fire. The other possibility is an accident. Right after the fire most of the mainstream news was suggesting that it was an accident, which was impossible to determine at the time. I watched a couple of clips of CNN who forcefully shut down any suggestions of arson. It is verboten to even mention arson as a possibility. I hope that it was an accident such as faulty wiring or a pile of oily rags. I suspect that’s what they’ll say even if it’s determined to be arson.

  3. Five years ago, Notre Dame was intact, and while we were in Paris it was a major sightseeing tour for us. It will never be the same as it was even though they are rebuilding, but I agree that it opened some eyes about having a timber ceiling and wooden walls and no fire-prevention system. My first thought as the fire was detected was it surely was an act of terrorism. They say it was accidental via an electrical short. There was an incident within a day of the Notre Dame fire in NYC in which some kook tried to enter St. Patrick’s Cathedral with two cans of gasoline and other flammables. Just some kook and he was quickly apprehended. I don’t think he can say he was just going in to pray.

    1. Carole: I visited Notre Dame in 1976. Never been back to Paris. Not sure I would want to now from what I have seen.

      Yes, the government says terrorism was not the cause. But given the French government’s bending backward to play kissy-face to Mohammedans, I’m not entirely convinced of the fire’s innocent orgins.

  4. We probably will never know what happened and I’m ok with that, but I will not donate/give any money for the restoration of Notre Dame. Let the Catholic church sell some of their valuables to pay for the rebuilding.

  5. Sadly, France and many other European countries have allowed too many of the wrong people into their lands. We in the U.S. welcome true refugees, but we cannot take in all of those seeking entry. There is only so much money for the social welfare system, and we already have a large portion of our populace that through various reasons have become dependent upon this system. Will they be willing to accept less benefits so that we can take care of this rush of people? I don’t know.

    President Trump wants to send some of these people to the sanctuary cities. The media says that this is inhumane. But isn’t it inhumane to drop four busloads of people at the Yuma bus station without a cent to their names in 110-degree heat? And tomorrow, there will be another four busloads of people. These small border cities have no ability to care for these folks. The bus company will not allow them in the terminal or on the property unless they buy tickets.
