    Johnny Depp - You loved France. They are so much more nuanced and culturally aware and all that jazz; that is until you have to pay to be part of their 'enlightened society.'

    Reading about France's 75 percent tax on the rich got me wondering if JD was man enough to stay there (where he had lived for well more than a decade) or if he was as phony as about every other Hollywood a-hole.

    So I looked it up:

    Johnny Depp moves back to America to avoid paying taxes in France | Celebrity Buzz | a Chron.com blog

    Johnny Depp fled France when the socialist candidate was talking about 70 percent taxes and the writing was on the wall.

    Oh Johnny. You're just another so-called ugly American like the rest of us.

    Everyone has to pay taxes. People who think they shouldn't pay any taxes shouldn't have the right to anything at all.

    75 percent is a "fair share?" In principle, you should be working for yourself and your interests (interests that can include charitable giving). Why should you give 3 out of every 4 dollars to a faceless entity? At that point, you are no longer free and you are subject to the bondage of government.

    The difference is that not wanting to pay 75% of one's income in taxes is perceived by the left as not wanting to pay any taxes at all.

    France is going to fail, and do it so horrendously that this will likely bring down the entire eurozone.

    The ideal and end result of socialism is that the government seizes the business and makes the executives salaried employees working for the government who takes all the profit. The ideal and end result of socialism is communism.

    Seriously are you saying that to a 75% income tax? That is ROBBERY! If your total taxes on income (including payroll, SS, State income etc.) exceed 50% than we've become a totalitarianism state!
