Gerard The Gallant Gaul

Gerard, the Gallant Gaul, Depardieu is my hero.

Good for him. Not only a great actor, but one who knows how to say "fuck off."

And yes, surprise, I support him. That a socialist politician called him "pathetic" and socialist papers are reacting with the usual and typical vitriol makes my respect for him all the more grand.

I was born in 1948,” he wrote, “I started working aged 14, as a printer, as a warehouseman, then as an actor, and I’ve always paid my taxes.” Over 45 years, Depardieu said, he had paid 145 million euros in tax, and to this day employs 80 people. Last year he paid taxes amounting to 85 per cent of his income. “I am neither worthy of pity nor admirable, but I shall not be called 'pathetic’,” he concluded, saying that he was sending back his French passport.

That's a lot of money they took.

He definitely is pulling a John Galt.

Just like Newtown will be a tipping point, I believe the expansion of the state and taxes will also hit a wall forcing other alternatives to what amounts to expropriating people's wealth.

The funny thing - or ironic if you prefer - North American actors would love Francois Hollande. See how far French socialism goes without money produced by others.


Someone can be moved to wonder, how can France vote for socialists? Well, politics is funny that way. I just got the shock of the day when I heard a poll suggesting Pauline Marois's PQ could win a majority! I scarce believed what I heard! Despite her disgraceful, amateurish actions, she gained voters?


Get the U-Haul ready for real. That chick scares the shit out of me.

I was also reading Les autres are more and more motivated to defend their rights. They're even out to choose a logo and all that.

Whatever it is, I will (possibly gladly) join the skirmish strictly on common decency and CIVIL LIBERTIES grounds.
