    Wow, France's newly elected President the Socialist Mr. Francois Hollande revealed his desire to mimic the ideology of Barack Hussein Obama, by attacking the rich to pay for all the ridiculous handout programs he seems to favor, as Mr. Obama does. Interesting that as he mimics Mr. Obama's domestic policies, other nations such as Germany fearing another economic collapse claim Hollande's desire to renegotiate Europe's fiscal pact is "not possible". In the first linked article: Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher once said, socialism works until you run out of other people's money, and as long as there are wealthy citizens, and a productive class of workers earning income, the ability to siphon off their wealth through taxation gives politicians the capacity to keep promising free services to people who themselves do not earn it. Thanks Maggie... That sums it up very nicely. :clap2:

    He's also a major hypocrite. Did you know he's fabulously rich? I guess that's how he can keep his wife and mistress at the same time.

    I digress. Back to Hollande being a hypocrite.

    New French president Francois Hollande, who claims to ‘dislike the rich’, has THREE homes on French Riviera

    France's new Socialist president owns three holiday homes in the glamorous Riviera resort of Cannes, it emerged today.

    The 57-year-old who 'dislikes the rich' and wants to revolutionise his country with high taxes and an onslaught against bankers is in fact hugely wealthy himself.

    His assets were published today in the Official Journal, the gazette which contains verified information about France's government.

    To the undoubted embarrassment to the most left-wing leader in Europe and a man who styles himself as 'Mr Normal', they are valued at almost £1million.


    I love these limousine liberals! :lol:

    I like this French phrase. It's "Gauche Caviar" or "Left Wing Caviar" or a "Champagne Socialist" equivalent in English.

    As well as the spacious Paris apartment he shares with his lover Valerie Trierweiler, Hollande owns a palatial villa in Mougins, the prestigious hill-top Cannes suburb where the artist Pablo Picasso used to live.

    It is valued by the Official Journal at €800,000 (£642,000), and is just a short drive from Hollande's two flats in the Cannes. They are each priced at €230,000 (£185,000) and €140,000 (£112,000).

    Limousine Liberals!:badgrin: That sums it up perfectly! The "do as I say, not as I do" Liberal Elite, who always know what is best for us little people. They will enact whatever policy, however economically damaging to hold onto the one thing they desire most... Power. I really think if some people were to shine an analytical light onto what is the real motivation behind their free Government Welfare programs (instead of just sheepishly holding out their hands in earnest) they would discover that the real reason is to keep them down economically, and in their place while the very elitists they hold in such high regard, continue on their paths of power, and wretched excess. One can only hope.

    I really think it's funny that Socialists follow the examples of Obama... I guess that old saying "lead by example" rings true.

    Thanks Liberal clowns for not having the pith (backbone) to accept the fact that you Socialists i France use your false messiah (Obama) as a role model to spread your lunatic nonsense anywhere, and everywhere... When are you clowns going to ante up, and admit that most of these programs you all desire, are simply beyond the scope of affordability? That is... Unless someone else is paying for them.

    3 homes at a total value of a million euros is not really a lot.
    I thought cons loved their rich leaders.

    Sorry but how is that parroting? Obama only wants to return to the Clinton era rates, with the top bracket at 39.6%. That's quite a bit lower than 75%. Are you stupid? Do you know what numbers mean?
