Gerard Depardieu vows to give up his French passport and puts £40m Parisian mansion on the market in protest at huge tax hikes. Mon dieu! Wait until the movietards in Hollywood figure out they too can move and avoid paying Governor Moonbeam’s tax the rich tax. Not to mention all the other rich people who can move next door to Nevada and not even have a state income tax.

The French President got pissed because Gerard is moving. Tough shit. I would move too if I had a boat load of money and some idiot politician wanted to take most of it…Are you listening Jerry Brown?

Good for him. Of course the government is upset, one of their cash cows refuses to stand around getting milked any more.

‘Despite my excesses, my appetite and my love of life, I am a free man.

‘I am not asking to be approved of, but I could at least be respected. All of those who have left France have not been insulted as I have been.

That’s better, but scotch isn’t to my taste either.
Bourbon and beer however, YUM!

OK, I can deal with that, just as long is we aren’t doing shots.

I never said anything about hanging around a bar, I was just thinking about enjoying a body shot in private.
I’m sure that if you were with someone special, that you wouldn’t object to something like that in private.

That’s how we got to body shots!

Sorry, I just can’t help myself, I like teasing and flirting with drb. She’s a fun gal. Besides, did you see how upset she got when she thought I was flirting with you? ;-)

Cyrano, Jean de la Florette, Vatel and (you will laugh) Asterix and Obelix are my favorite Depardieu movies. I don’t really know his policies from before this, however, he has to do what he has to do to protect his assets. Not just for himself but also for anyone he wishes to share it with.

85 percent!!!!!!???? OMG… 130 million Euros for over 50 years of a lifetime is a lot of money to pay in taxes. It is fantastic that he has that ability to pay that much in taxes (it means he is doing very well) but he shoudn’t have to. It is incredible because he cannot ask the government to give him count of what they did with all that money, but the govt has the gall to request its citizens to give account of their money and how they got it and punish them if they were succesful. It is absolutely disgusting.

Finally someone has said “screw this” and is bailing. The English have bashed those who have fled England over its high taxes, now many of the French are doing the same. Boy, the Bahamas and the Caiman Island are going to have a lot of people moving in.

Look at Johnny Depp. He retains homes in both the US and Frane, and never lives in France long enough to have to pay taxes. But I expect he is able to cut his taxes here because of his residence in France. Its a shell game because they don’t want THEIR wealth to be redistributed. But he is an avid Obama supporter. Idiot.
