Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin, who moved to the United States at age 13 in order to escape being kidnapped by Brazilian gangs, has been in the news this week for renouncing his American citizenship in order to dodge taxes on his Facebook stock. He’s headed to Singapore to keep being rich in a place where he’s (a) safe, (b) can speak English, and (c) doesn’t have to pay a capital gains tax.

Much of this is in French, but you don't have to know any French to get the point.

Because he found out that gay marriage was going to be legalized in the US?

[audience laughter]

Spoiler — When told Francois Hollande wants to raise tax rates, he changes his mind.

Thanks Tom D.

How many times can you use the word surrender in a seven word sentence?

I'm not sure why, but I picture him somewhere in the Caribbean.

H/T Tom D I saw thus on the French news. I never thought I would agree with Will Smith, but God Bless America! The newscaster Laurent Delahousse was taken aback! Nobody in their right mind would turn over 75% of their earnings to the gov't.

After watching François Hollande's horrible, boring speech today, I'm sure mire than a few French people are having buyers remorse.

And... Hollande appointed a convicted crook, Jean-Marc Ayrault as PM.

Nice start Monsieur Flamby. Stupid move because the first round of the legislative elections are in a few weeks, and the left can't muster even close to 50%.
