Burning cigarette or electrical problem, but not arson may have caused fire at Notre Dame prosecutors say.

Uh huh. OK.

France’s Le Pen to go on trial for tweeting gruesome images of the ISIS terrorists atrocities to French men and women in Paris in 2015.

Inciting the public by showing them what happened.

Illegal in France and unfortunately a lot of places.

I don't intend to retire. I'll work until I die.
I understand if you work and collect social security at the same time you are heavily taxed.

Anyone know how bad?
A couple with a combined annual income between $32,000 and $44,000 will pay tax on 50% of their SS income and pay tax on 100% of their non-SS income.

A couple with a combined annual income over $44,000 will pay tax on 85% of their SS income and pay tax on 100% of their non-SS income.
Do you still contribute to SS when you work? I’m asking but I’m assuming you still do, as it’s free money for the govt.

I guess if your over 70 your also forced to declare a part of IRA’s as income as well.

The yellow vests were out protesting. They were incensed that the French rich were so quick to donate millions to Notre Dame. They may get a deduction, your paying 90% tax why not.

Unlike here in the US, French working poor pay high taxes. Since there is so much free stuff, if you work you pay. A French friend showed me his first US pay check. He was concerned his employer had not taken enough out of his paycheck for taxes. He was used to 50%. At the time he made about 15 euros an hour in France.

No place but France, for now.

I was reading about the “electrical fire” at the Notre Dame Cathedral and came across this:

“Although all French polls show that Macron’s popularity has remain depressed since a tax increase on retirees last year, they suggest his party may be ahead in France’s May 26”

“a tax increase on retirees”

So what would that be? A property tax specifically for retirees? Taxing their pensions?

Low wage earners in France are already taxed about 50% to pay for all the free stuff. For example, they have free day care for working mom’s. But if your married and have a working husband and you also have a job, your at the bottom of the list for a spot for the free daycare. Usually the wait time is 5 years, but by then the child is in kindergarten.
