The last time we heard from potato-faced "sex" symbol Gerard Depardieu, he waspeeing all over the aisle of an airplane because a stewardess didn't wash his socks or something. Now he is peeing on the entire nation of France, because he doesn't like paying his taxes. That's right, France, your gain (of having Gerard Depardieu move to Belgium) is Belgium's loss (having Gerard Depardieu move to Belgium).


We think we did the math right here. Depardieu says that this year, he paid 85 percent of his income in taxes, and that over the past 45 years he has paid 145 million Euros. If that 85 percent had been steady the whole time (which it was not; the new high 75 percent marginal rate for the super-rich is brand-new), that would have meant he had earned 170 million Euros and had been left with only 25 million Euros, which of course is reason enough for anyone to go Galt. Since French tax rates are not pictures of cats or celebrities, we were unable to find tax rates for the superwealthy over the last 50 years. But they were definitely less than 75 percent. Because, again, that is "new."

Now, the only income we could find for Depardieu showed that he has made 19.3 million Euros (plus $5.5 million US, a combination which at this particular moment would be worth around $30 million US) since 2006. This does not count any income he might have made from his vineyards in Italy, France, Argentina, Morocco and Algeria. Or from his two Paris restaurants. Or like capital gains or whatever. That is only $5 million a year. And then France wants to tax it??? HOW IS GERARD DEPARDIEU EVEN SUPPOSED TO LIVE?

You guys, Gerard Depardieu is practically a pauper now. We can see why he would want to take his Newport Harbor boat parade and go home.

Well, not really a bar, but a conference, and not just any conference, baybee. We're talking BIO, the annual gathering of biotech execs, policy makers, and scientists put on by the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (aka, not just a lobbying group!). Who has two thumbs and attended the gathering a couple of weeks ago? This Mexican.

It's a new week in America, and as usual everything is going to hell, because that's what happens when you allow 70,000 "economic anxiety" voters in the Rust Belt, Vladimir Putin, and James Comey to decide an election. We will have many stories about Donald Trump's brutal crackdown on Hispanic toddlers today, but in this post, we must revisit that greatest of Americans, Devin Fucking Nunes, congressman from California, possible literal actual Russian agent and (alleged) cow romancer from all the most romantic novels about cow romance. As the French say, ooh la la FUCKING DEVIN.
