Johnny (I Don't Mind Paying Higher Taxes) Depp Flees France Due To - HIGHER TAXES!
Class warfare SOUNDS GOOD, but in practice, the uber-rich have options to move themselves, and their money around, that you and I just don't have.

Which is why those "Taxes on the RICH!" always REALLY mean THE MIDDLE CLASS, because that is where most of the money is.

From Reuters:
The French are bleaker about their country’s future than at any time since 2005, a new poll showed on Saturday, with 68 percent saying they are “rather” or “very” pessimistic… Hollande’s government has been reeling from unemployment at a 13-year high and a rash of job cuts in recent weeks at top employers like carmaker Peugeot and retailer Carrefour.

The government launched a plan this week to create 150,000 state-sponsored jobs for youth. Only 34 percent of those surveyed were confident in the government’s ability to battle unemployment, and just 20 percent expect the government to be able to improve their buying power. …The poll found that the pessimism extended even to 58 percent of Socialist party supporters.

I'd like to go quietly in my sleep, like grandpa did. Not screaming in terror like the people in the back seat of the car he was driving.

^^^^^ this
Out of this ugliness may come,
Some day, so beautiful a flower,
That men will wonder at that hour,
Remembering smoke and flowerless slum,
And ask-glimpsing the agony
Of the slaves who wrestle to be free-
'But why were all the poets dumb?'
-William Montgomerie

So many gods, so many creeds,
So many paths that wind and wind,
While just the art of being kind
Is all the sad world needs.

Johnny is pals with Keith Richards, the Rolling Stone upon which he based his pirate persona.

Guess what Keith and the boys did in the 70s? They left England due to the high taxes which were around 90%.

They went to France.

The Stones named their album from that period "Exile On Main Street" because they felt like exiles since they could not stay "home" without being robbed by the government.

Basically yes.

For more years that I can remember, groups and singers have been over charging for everything from records to concert tee-shirts.

How do you think a modern group or singer has two or three hits and become made for life.

Because they charge a fair price for their music......... Don't think so.

What kind of bull shit is that? Just because you make money...someone else feels the need to take it from you. Makes one want to fight.
