    Quote of the Day – Johnny Depp Edition 

    “Well, I kind of do (live back in America). I’m between wherever I end up on location, and then the States. (I left because) France wanted a piece of me. They wanted me to become a permanent resident. Permanent residency status – which changes everything. They just want… Dough. Money… I’m certainly not ready to give up my American citizenship.”

    Depp goes on to explain that if he spends more than 183 days a year in France he will have to pay income tax in both Europe and America, adding, “So you essentially work for free.”

    Johnny Depp on the upcoming 75% millionaire taxes in France.

    People work hard for their money, they don’t want to give it a government who is then going to waste it.

      Due to a power outage, only one paramedic responded to the 911 call.
      The house was very dark so the paramedic asked Kathleen, a 3-yr old
      girl to hold a flashlight high over her mommy so he could see while he
      helped deliver the baby.
      Very diligently, Kathleen did as she was asked.
      Heidi pushed and pushed and after a little while, Connor was born.
      The paramedic lifted him by his little feet and spanked him on his bottom.
      Connor began to cry.
      The paramedic then thanked Kathleen for her help and asked the
      wide-eyed 3-yr old what she thought about what she had just witnessed.
      Kathleen quickly responded, ‘He shouldn’t have crawled in there in the
      first place, smack him again!’
      Saw this joke & had to share it! ;-)

      A married couple was in a terrible accident where the man's face was severely burned. The doctor told the husband that they couldn't graft any skin from his body because he was too skinny. So the wife offered to donate some of her own skin. However, the only skin on her body that the doctor felt was suitable would have to come from her buttocks. The husband and wife agreed that they would tell no one about where the Skin came from, and they requested that the doctor also honor their secret.

      After all, this was a very delicate matter. After the surgery was completed, everyone was astounded at the man's new face. He looked more handsome than he ever had before! All his friends and relatives just went on and on about his youthful beauty!

      One day, he was alone with his wife, and he was overcome with emotion at her sacrifice. He said, "Dear, I just want to thank you for everything you did for me. How can I possibly repay you?"

      My darling," she replied, "I get all the thanks I need every time I see your mother kiss you on the cheek."

      Isn`t it fascinating how socialist governments fail to realize how quickly they are running out of OPM (Other People`s Money) !?

    Quote of the Day – Bernard Grinspan Edition 

     “Some of our clients are very seriously discussing relocation – not only to London but also Singapore and New York. There’s a lot of uncertainty.”

    Bernard Grinspan, Managing Partner, Paris office of Gibson Dunn.  International Law firm on his discussions with his “wealthy” French clients.

    A 75% income tax on the “rich” is expected with the election of Francois Hollande.

    History teaches these people nothing, this tax will lower revenues and push them even closer to the edge of bankruptcy.  The Germans should expect them hat in hand looking for a bailout in the not too distant future.
