PGA Champ Phil Mickelson may Go Depardieu, flee to Canada

Sick and tired of Obama confiscatory tax rates

From Forbes via TNR, h/t Gateway Pundit, "Golfer Phil Mickelson May Call It Quits Due To Climbing Tax Rates":
Word is, Phil Mickelson is mad as hell about rising tax rates, and he’s not going to take it anymore. What follows is a brief portion of an interview Mickelson gave earlier today after carding a final-round 66 at the Palmer Course at PGA West in La Quinta – which I assure you, is not associated with the La Quinta next door to your local Denny’s – in which the golfer hinted that he is considering drastic career changes because of a combined tax rate nearing “62, 63 percent:”

Q. When you’re asked about Stricker’s semi-retirement, with the political situation the last couple months, blah, blah, blah, what did you mean by that? Do you find it an unsettling time in a way?

PHIL MICKELSON: Well, it’s been an interesting offseason. And I’m going to have to make some drastic changes. I’m not going to jump the gun and do it right away, but I will be making some drastic changes.

Q. Meaning leaving from California?

PHIL MICKELSON: I’m not sure.

Q. Moving to Canada?

PHIL MICKELSON: I’m not sure what exactly, you know, I’m going to do yet. I’ll probably talk about it more in depth next week.
From the Editor: Question for LR Readers? Is it now time to officially switch from the headline moniker of "Going Galt" to "Going Depardieu" on a permanent basis? Your feedback in the comments section much appreciated. (Photo credit -

If Phil is going to Canada for lower taxation he's in for a surprise.
