Thanks for expressing what many of us feel, Glenn183. The tax system is a thief after our hard earned income, and wanting to keep as much of it as possible away from a moronic spendaholic is completely honorable. Merry Christmas to you too!

Atlas is shrugging and Dan Mitchell is laughing.

I predicted back in May that well-to-do French taxpayers weren’t fools who would meekly sit still while the hyenas in the political class confiscated ever-larger shares of their income.

But the new President of France, Francois Hollande, doesn’t seem overly concerned by economic rationality and decided (Obama must be quite envious) that a top tax rate of 75 percent is fair.” And patriotic as well!
