and a bunch of our current crop of SEFR*.
How many of these clowns have been caught slanting new, editing video or audio, flat-out lying? Over and over, usually in service to a politician or political view(or both).
Duranty would be proud.
A fine response to the French socialists:
The prime minister, Jean-Marc Ayrault, described Depardieu's
behaviour as pathetic and unpatriotic at a time when the French are
being asked to pay higher taxes to reduce a bloated national debt.
"Pathetic, you said pathetic? How pathetic is that?" Depardieu said in a letter to the weekly newspaper le Journal du Dimanche.
"I am leaving because you believe that success, creation, talent, anything different must be sanctioned," he said.
Seems the socialists are outraged that a bunch of people who've succeeded are taking the option of moving out of 'Punish The Rich' France(kind of like Maryland and other states here) rather than pay the "We won't let you keep what you earned" taxes.
"Who are you to judge me, I ask you Mr Ayrault, prime minister of Mr
Hollande? Despite my excesses, my appetite and my love of life, I remain
a free man," Depardieu wrote.
First, I'd say that those 'excesses, appetite and love of life are PART of being a free man, and nothing to apologize for;
Second, I'd still like to know of the President of France, rich bastard himself, is paying the 75% tax? Or is there some way out of it for the 'more equal than others' bastard?
