    The correct answer was: a bank. Would also accept 'an investment acct'. Now, what does a bank do with Gerards money?

    edit: nevermind. i can see someone already informed you. But really, should we have constantly prove to people that the wealthy produce with their wealth?

    He is moving country... huge difference...

    Plus it is sour grapes over his man Sarkozy lost the election. Also I doubt that he even earns so much that he will be hit by the 75% tax burden... after he pissed in the isle of a commercial plane in mid air.. his "star" has very much gone down in France and around the world.
    No, when you suck a person's wealth away, they leave. Something liberals will never understand.

    Oh... I think that it's more than just a few, and this incident once again reveals how vile the socialists are.
    French speaking Switzerland, England, Belgium are going to see their share of wealthy folks... and perhaps more important...

    ... even fewer are going to look to France as a place to invest.

    That's socialism for ya... they seek to penalize one group, but end up screwing those they intended to "help".

    I just don't get on the one hand how they can cheer people abandoning their country, but hate it when other people want to be apart of it.
    To answer you last sentence it's easy. In the case of the former one is escaping oppressive government (so we cheer), and in the latter Parasite Nation is trying to grant illegals citizenship.

    Illegals were granted amnesty twice, the last time was in 1985. The problem with these illegals was supposed to get fixed. It wasn't.

    To answer your first part... Yes there are clear answers, and yes it is an affront to those who have received citizenship legally to grant someone citizenship who makes a run for the border... our border.

    Proof?

    I think he might be pissed about punitive taxation of the wealthy.

    But not in PEU's world.

    Here is the typical poisoned Socialist/Parasite Nation mind. They are polluted with envy... concerned with other people's wealth and how the government can thieve it for them and their causes.
    What a revelation.

    And Conservatives dont understand that stuff needs to be paid for and everyone has to contribute.

    Plus no one is sucking a person's wealth away.. it is temporary plus for only incomes over 1 million euros.. that is 1.3 million dollars.. everything under is taxed normally and if you cant live off 999.999 euros, then you seriously have a problem.

    I think there is 1 person who disagrees with you--the actor in question. I think it always boils down to a difference in the meaning of "fair share."

    The problem is greed and it is all encompassing for some. They want and want no matter how much they have. It's like King Midas.
