    The French win again.

    I have game to the conclusion, the only winners of TOT is the French Goverment. There GREED has hurt the investers of us who own TOT. There is alot of good american companys and I think I will SELL all my TOT holdings before the FRENCH Goverment makes another fool out of me.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

      Once upon a time (allegedly) in a nice little forest, there lived an
      orphaned bunny and an orphaned snake. By a surprising coincidence, both
      were blind from birth.

      One day, the bunny was hopping through the forest, and the snake was
      slithering through the forest, when the bunny tripped over the snake and
      fell down. This, of course, knocked the snake about quite a bit.

      "Oh, my," said the bunny, "I'm terribly sorry. I didn't mean to hurt
      you. I've been blind since birth, so, I can't see where I'm going. In
      fact, since I'm also an orphan, I don't even know what I am."

      "It's quite OK," replied the snake. "Actually, my story is much the
      same as yours. I, too, have been blind since birth, and also never knew
      my mother. Tell you what, maybe I could slither all over you, and work
      out what you are, so at least you'll have that going for you."

      "Oh, that would be wonderful" replied the bunny. So the snake slithered
      all over the bunny, and said, "Well, you're covered with soft fur; you
      have really long ears; your nose twitches; and you have a soft cottony
      tail. I'd say that you must be a bunny rabbit."

      "Oh, thank you! Thank you," cried the bunny, in obvious excitement. The
      bunny suggested to the snake, "Maybe I could feel you all over with my
      paw, and help you the same way that you've helped me."

      So the bunny felt the snake all over, and remarked, "Well, you're smooth
      and slippery, and you have a forked tongue, no backbone and no balls.
      I'd say you must be French".

    • Dividend withholding is 15% not 30% if your US broker has done the paperwork (like TDAmeritrade).

    • I am really confused about this issue. Someone please explain to me a little more. I am US citizen. I have E*Trade account and use it to buy TOT shares three weeks ago. I sold it last week for a little profit. I did not see any reduction from the total trading amount except the commission fee which E*Trade took from every trade. People in this board keep mentioning about 0.2% French government levy on sale/purchase it's TOT shares. I wonder if I have to pay that by the end of the year or what? Thanks.
