Why not here too?!

My mouth was wide open when I heard the news last night. Sixteen of the wealthiest people in France have claimed higher taxes for themselves... you can read about it here or here or even here. I just heard that last year the Germans did the same. 

L'Oreal, Total SA, Peugeot were among them. I know it probably sounds silly, but I'm proud to buy L'Oreal products right now!

In a time when economies are going through a turmoil and poor people are becoming poorer and wealthy ones becoming richer, wouldn't the World be so much better if all people thought like this?!

Over here... our richest men say they're mere employees and stay quiet...

Think about it...

    Was it a good footballmatch ?
    The belgium footballplayer Witsel was good hè ?!! They needed him to make goals !ihihihhi LOL
    I didn't saw it but Luc told me , and he said tell it Teresa that Benfica needed a belgium footballplayer to make goals !hihihi


  5. I hadn't heard this. I'm thinking there are a bunch of folks in the States who could contribute to the economy and not feel a thing. We are headed to France next week. Looking forward to finally getting to visit the country. I only use L'oreal products on my face and have for years. Hope your day is great. Tammy

  6. LOL Marjo, with free circulation in the EU Benfica has... 3 Portuguese players, all the rest are foreign! So I guess it was hard to have a Portuguese player scoring at the match ;)

    Valeria, I'm so glad to read you, I've missed you!

    I've been to France a couple of times, only once for pleasure (and my son was only 3 then), the others on work, so I didn't get to see as much as I would like... have a wonderful time, Tammy!
