The French are learning what Warren Buffett would have Americans too learn: that there is a limit to how much the rich can be soaked before they leave.

“Sometimes the angels punish us by answering our prayers” – NP, from Carnies

Sometimes you do get what you ask for. Just make sure it’s what you really want. While the rich are learning an important lesson in France, I would say that the greater lesson is to be learned by those who ask for more government and more taxes. You might get what you ask for. And then…well, then nothing…because it will all stop.
