    You no longer have that privilege. The Repuclican party has stripped you of your rights.

    Welcome to the feudal (or futile) States of America.

    Yes - but it's grève - and the pronunciation of grave is nothing like grève.

    Also, it is ce n'est pas - fuck knows where you coming from with no verb between ne and pas. I really should kill you now :smile:

    That is the point that I was trying to bring to Drifterwood's attention--for once, in a gentler fashion. He could also have written "C'est pas grave," omitting the "ne" altogether, which is contrary to the grammar that we learn in French classes but is well-established in colloquial French.
