“Trench Warfare” And “Civil War” Over Confiscatory Taxes In France Alain Afflelou: “Those who are in the 75% income-tax bracket may go well beyond 90% taxation.” How DARE he try to weasel out of his INCOME TAX that he owes the Nation of France - at least according to the populace vote [gotta love democracy]. I mean, hey, the populace isn't jealous of his good fortune and no no no, they aren't try to steal from him (and give to them) no no no.... they only want to ensure he pays HIS FAIR SHARE. I mean: HE USES THE ROADS! Never mind this man has worked his arse off day in and day out to provide the public with the products they desired at a price they wanted them at. No, that's not enough. He's a "Citizen". He's "French". He drives on the roads (paid for by his gasoline tax, and rent seeking activities like his drivers licence and registration fees and a million and one other taxes.... oh, but never mind that). The politician demagogues (aka: French "government") sold as many Bonds on their children as they can, there's not much more they can squeeze out of their kids, so, it's time to make this personal. And get this, he's already paid. Now he just wants to get the F-out. His crime: Trying to escape the Farm! No no no... you're not tax-cattle. You're a "Free" Citizen. Just keep telling yourself that.
