barack obama and francois hollande
This is actually not very funny to me but hey, whatever. C’est la vie as they say in my quite possibly soon to be ex-host country. This is not an isolated case. Not only are American businesses in France going to suffer, French small businesses will feel the wrath as well (if they don’t already feel it). If you’re in France or you visited recently, I’m sure you’ve seen many places out-of-business. This is why a lot of people have moved to England. It’s not a new thing; the tax/social charge system in France for entrepreneurs/independent business owners is dysfunctional and always has been; it’s just going to get worse. The state of the economy doesn’t help, either, and we’re not prepared to take on continous and conscientious struggle. It was really fun and good while it lasted (10 years!), so thanks for the good times. If, by chance, something miraculous happens in our favor, we’ll stay. Otherwise, it’s going to be a reluctant au revoir très bientôt. By the way, this website may be up for sale soon so send me offers!

jacque chirac and bruno le maire at the salon d'agriculture 2011 france
Jacques Chirac: Yo Bruno, what kind of animal is that over there?
Bruno Le Maire: Since when do you say, “yo,” Jacques?
Chirac: It’s always been a part of my vernacular. BTW, you can call me Monsieur Chirac, and don’t change the subject.
Le Maire: Just because I’m the Minister of Agriculture doesn’t mean I know anything about agriculture. I actually hate animals and nature. Didn’t you see me on Canal Plus yesterday? I don’t even know what a turkey sounds like. I just wanted to be Minister and agriculture was the only one available. I took it because I knew les grands surfaces (large supermarket chains) would give me huge bribes to not denounce them because they’re fleecing farmers and French consumers.
Chirac: You sort of suck, Bruno. Of course, bribes are kind of nice.

francois hollande and maxime bono
The Parti Socialist (PS) just wrapped up their L’université d’été, a summer camp-like convention for French politicians. This year it was in La Rochelle (I’m not sure if the venue changes yearly). Here’s the extremely long-winded Francois Hollande, the premier secrétaire of the socialist party with the mayor of La Rochelle, Maxime Bono, in the background.

dialogue between florent pagny, zidane and xavier darcos
Known for his raspy voice and chart topping pop songs, Florent Pagny (left) sung his tax woes in the song, “Ma Liberté de Penser” (My freedom to think), and even though this happened long ago, France is rather merciless and never lets neither him nor anyone else forget about any of their past predicaments particularly if they involve stepping over legal lines.

Note: Xavier Darcos is France’s Education Minister (though it would’ve been more ironic if he’d been the Finance Minister…)
