Johnny Depp Says U.S. Is Like a 'Dumb Puppy' By REUTERS

Filed at 7:48 a.m. ET

BERLIN (Reuters) - Hollywood star Johnny Depp said on Wednesday the United States was a stupid, aggressive puppy and he would not live there until the political climate changed.

The 40-year-old actor, who stars in the ``Pirates of the Caribbean,'' told the German news magazine Stern he was happier staying in the south of France with his wife, the French actress and singer Vanessa Paradis, and their two children.

``America is dumb, it's like a dumb puppy that has big teeth that can bite and hurt you, aggressive,'' he said.

``My daughter is four, my boy is one. I'd like them to see America as a toy, a broken toy. Investigate it a little, check it out, get this feeling and then get out,'' said the star of the off-beat films ``Edward Scissorhands'' and ``Dead Man.''

Depp slammed George W. Bush's administration for its criticism of French opposition to the U.S.-led war in Iraq.

``I was ecstatic they re-named 'French Fries' as 'Freedom Fries'. Grown men and women in positions of power in the U.S. government showing themselves as idiots,'' he told Stern.

How erudite. What a command of the language, reasoning, intellect.

This statement is akin to "You Big Stinky," or "Nanah unh," or even "You suck."

Yes, everyone has an opinion and some of them are just dumber than others. We respect that.

I have told several women that I would not see his new movie. They seem to be to much in lust of him because I was not able to stop them. I wish people would stand up and shut off these worthless actors and actresses. I is time to stop their paychecks.

Good luck among the uncaring French, who let hundreds of their elderly die, Johnny.

Have you seen this, Johnny?

Iraq had role in Sept. 11 attacks, lawsuit says.

The New York Sun | September 3, 2003 | Colin Miner

Family of famed terror expert accuses Saddam, Bin Laden

Iraq played a major role in the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon --providing Al Qaeda with money, training and material support, according to a suit filed by the family of the man described as America's foremost expert on terrorism.

He must have some skeleton in his closet that requires hiding in France.

Clinton picked Ireland for his escape haven.

Do France and Ireland extradite?

All right!

Let's see... Clooney, now Depp.
Two down and a bunch to go.

How do we nudge the Baldwin clown, Streisand, Whoopie, and all the big mouths who promised to leave if Dubya was elected?

America is dumb, it's like a dumb puppy

I've always said:

Better a dumb puppy, than a dead puppy

France shoulders shame of heat deaths (USA Today)

Just the thought that thousands of frail, elderly people died because temperatures that topped 100 degrees turned their apartments and nursing home rooms into suffocating death chambers — while much of the nation's younger population enjoyed their annual vacations — has sparked a national mea culpa.

More good news. Now if we can just get the rest of Hollywood to move to France, they can enjoy the Cannes Film Festival without having to leave home (and waste millions of gallons of jet fuel on their private planes).

What a well structured thought/sentence.

Once again, the foreign policy accumen, the understanding of world events from a hollywood "star"comes SHINING through in one sentence.

Ditto.

I was planning on renting the "Pirates..." DVD when it came out. Not anymore.

What a tool.

His wifey may have to don the burqua soon, the way France is going. And all the new cultural events in France--maybe he can attend a very chic synagogue-burning--
