    I'm confident if you wrote and asked him that he would tell you. I doubt few things matter more to him than your hatred of him, while acknowledging that you know nothing about him.

Much like most of the retards in holywood or who get featured on MTV (moron TV). Most of them serve no purpose but to leech millions and provide crappy entertainment to the masses.

    If your message is anything other than envious hatred of successful people, please provide a link to show the he was not investing his money in companies. It think you completely made that up out of thin air to concoct a lie to support your hatred of people more successfully economically than you are. Prove me wrong.

    People who are failures often hate those who are successful - raging and sobbing how unfair it all is. What else can they do but make excuses to blame anyone and everyone but themselves?

    What's wrong with banishing those who are cowards and frauds and would rather run away rather than pay their share? Ain't no such thing as a free lunch, government costs money, maintaining society costs money. Some people enjoy the privelege and freedom, but as soon as they have theirs they don't want to pay back. So there you go. They want to run away and not contribute to the prosperity or posterity of the country; that's fine. But they don't get to come back. They can buy an island somewhere and relax for all their days; it's cool, just don't come back. I'm not saying take all their money, I'm just that if the pussies run, make sure they don't come back. They can go make their own government somewhere where there is no tax.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    If these fools want the big bucks then they can go to school for 4-12 years, payoff their loans, fail numerous times in business then finally strike gold.

    No that is too much work... The would rather go the socialist union route with their local 301 threatening businesses until they give them their "fair share".

    It pisses me off that people break their backs building a business then some unions waltz in and pretend like they own it...

    Not more than a few comments later, some nice fella pointed out that this particular individual had indeed, not pissed away his fortune and did in fact invest his money and is directly or indirectly providing jobs for a few dozen frenchmen.

    I hence, recanted that statement in the comment acknowledging that newly found info because I was under the impression that Gerard Depardieu was a drunk... because of his relatively recent public exhibitions. I may still be correct in considering him a drunk, but I am wrong in considering he is just that.

    Is life all about "health care systems"? It's amazing how dependent people become on governments within just a generation or two. The man is probably quite aware of the French health care system but doesn't give a stuff.

    3. Can you provide proof that wealthy people are fleeing those nations you mention? Actual numbers that is?

    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.
    Now that the guy has fled to Russia, can we really say he's fleeing oppressive government?
