    French star Depardieu moves to lower-tax Belgium

    PARIS (AP) — A Belgian mayor says famed French actor Gerard Depardieu has bought a home and set up legal residence in his small town, lured by the food, the people, the lifestyle — and lower tax rates than back home.

    The Socialist government under French President Francois Hollande has infuriated many ultra-rich in France by presenting a 2013 budget that would tax top earners at 75 percent over the first €1 million of annual income. Belgium's top rate is 50 percent.

    Stay tuned for stories like this from the US under the 0bama regime ...

    I was in Belgium during a layover between Italy and Germany. They sold Godiva at the airport kiosks, as well as stores set up every 10 yards....lol. I'd live there.

    I have to wonder why he didn't move to the U.S. With our 35% tax rate, you would think it would appeal.....except that he would only want to move to New York, and as we all know, the 35% federal rate is only the beginning of what will be paid in New York....

    Wait a minute! Are they saying that lower taxes actually attracts high earners?! Gad! Who would have thought?

    If you want to know what God thinks of money, look at who he gives it to.

    Hold on. Why isn't he taking Dopey Joe's words to heart. Why does he not want to give the government more of his money?

    Biden said: "It's time to be patriotic ... time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut." (or France as it were)

    Gerard, you are not jumping in and being a part of the deal. Shame.
    Be Not Afraid.

    Wow. That is surprising. I mean, it is rare to hear about someone from France being a complete douchebag.

    I like that he moved from France to Belgium for the food. France is really slipping. Didn't they own cuisine at one time?

    What's next, I left France because their food blows worse than Hot Pockets?
