    Even the French are getting a taste of the failed policies of Socialism, to include their courts which will not allow the insane Socialists of that country to rob the wealthy blind. The really telling thing is that although a multitude of business has fled France over the tax inequality, soaking the rich-- these same blind politicians don't care.. Jobs don't matter, only stealing money from the rich to fund their pet projects. Just as here in the United States, you could tax the rich 100% of their income and it would only help to fund the government for 3 months and NOT MAKE ONE single dent in the debt.

    Stealing 75% of what someone earns is paying their fair share?! Show me where you are entitled to another hard working American's income?

    Ever hear, "Thou shall not covet?" That means get your hands and greedy eyes off of what others have. Don't like it? Take it up with God himself.

    First, I don't believe in your God or your bible. Your "God" is a fraud to keep stupid people like you in line. I'm vastly more evolved.

    Second, if you are making seven or eight figures, it's because you are stealing from the people who are doing the actual work. Shit, we give 8 figures to CEO's when their companies need to be bailed out by the government, that gives the government the right to take that money back.
