Lifestyles of the Petro-Elite Should be Seen by American Public:
Class Warfare Should be Waged Against Oil-Producers–DRILL DRILL DRILL:
Democrats are waging “class war” against the wrong people.: : The people to be villified are not the wealthy Americans who employ Americans.:
America needs to understand how we are being: harmed by our government: energy policy.: We are suffering while Arabs live royally from the money we send them every time we buy a gallon of gas.:
Take a look at how rich we are making the Muslim world by refusing to drill and use our own resources of oil.: Their lifestyles are beyond lavish.: It is obscene considering that 19 Saudis were aboard the planes which killed 4,000 Americans on 9/11.:
The : excesses and the braggadocio of the petro-elitist Islamics are galling and display insensitivity to their own lower class in their countries.: Everything they do has to be the “biggest”: “the most” “the highest” and on and on.:
If you think it is possible to “co-exist” with such an arrogant culture, you are naÃ¯ve.: :
The American public is not able to see what : the Muslim world is doing with all of our money because of the closed : media and culture and the distance.: : Hopefully, this story will open some eyes.: Class warfare needs to be waged in America, but rather than grousing in Congress about how much to tax our wealthy residents, put the blame for our economic woes where it belongs:: We are being impoverished by those will kill us if they have a chance.:
Word has it that an Abu Dhabi billionaire is the proud owner of a$2.5 million : Mercedes V10 Quad Turbo sports job that has a body made of white gold! Not gold paint, but gold alloy sheet metal. Do these kinds of luxuries find any parallel with the similarly over-the-top “eco” projects happening in the region, like The World islands and Masdar City?:
The specially made car features a newly developed V10 quad turbo with 1,600 horsepower and 2800nm of torque. It is said to be able to go from 0-100km/h in less than 2 seconds, and can go a 1/4 mile in 6.89 seconds running on biofuel. But seriously folks, is it even relevant to talk about biofuel in the face of such an item?: .
Oil rich Emirates in the UAE have been known to spend large sums of money on all kinds of extravagant projects including what has been billed as the largest and: most expensive indoor ski complex in the world, Ski Dubai; the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa Tower (all 158 stories of it): : Abu Dhabi’s now being constructed luxurious Al Reem Island (said to be a playground for the wealthy); and what may be the only truly environmental sustainable project, Masdar City, which is also in the early stages of construction.:
All of these, including the car of course, are at the expense of millions of people throughout the Muslim world who go to bed hungry every night;: and many of these people (from countries like Bangladesh, Indonesia, and even Jordan) work in the UAE on these projects for incomes ranging from as little as $4 a day.:
It appears that only: the wealthy can afford: to purchase properties in these places, or spend the night in hotels that can run as much as $25,000 a night for a luxurious suite in Dubai’s Burg Al Arab ultra luxurious hotel tower. It makes us wonder what good could be done if just some of the money spent on these projects had been used for the good of the regional environment.:
And while the much touted Masdar City is being marketed as “an example for other countries”; other projects, especially Dubai’s island community extravaganza The World, may turn out to be the region’s economic and environmental downfall, due to severe problems from both aspects.
A group of British welfare recipients were arrested last year for selling British girls from age 8 to 23 to wealthy Arabs who were paying : :£50,000to buy virgins for sex.
Read the entire story : about last summer in Knightsbridge in London–the glitzy enclave is a favorite playground for the uber-wealthy Arabs, wearing Gucci and Prada burqas, : who fly their million dollar custom Veyron automobiles on their private planes to go shopping.:
Here’s just a little of it::
Here comes a low-riding Lamborghini Murciélago with a matt black, Batmobile-spec paint job and a garish yellow leather interior. Two boys, no older than 20, both wearing gold sunglasses, sit inside pumping the stereo and the gas pedal. The engine makes a noise like a scalded rottweiler as it is jockeyed up to its parking position, two wheels on, two wheels off the pavement. I can’t help noticing that it has no number plate on the front.:
As if to upstage the Italian super-car, an even more super one rocks up – a :£1?million Bugatti Veyron. Every inch of its bodywork has been gold-plated. :
Three vehicles behind is another Veyron. This one is white with chromium wings. The driver gets out – he is about 25 and dressed like an off-duty Lewis Hamilton. I compliment him on his car and ask him how he got it over to London. “In my plane!” he says with a huge grin and hands the keys to a flunkey.:
The live action game of Top Gear Top Trumps continues with a pearl-white, four-door Porsche Panamera. The Porsche parks in a “pay and display” bay, but its driver does neither. With a pip of his locking zapper he disappears into a Harrods side door. :
Around the corner is a Rolls-Royce Phantom customised with a stainless steel bonnet. The number plate on this car is “1”. Later on, I will Google-search this vehicle and discover something quite extraordinary; a couple of years back the Dubai resident owner of this car paid out the sum of, wait for it, $14?million for the registration number alone … just to be top dog, number one in Dubai.:
Now an arrogantly long Maybach limousine painted in distinct orange and matt black arrives. The letters “RRR” are picked out on the vehicle’s boot in a diamond-studded font. A handsome young man and his friend (or PA? or bodyguard?) apparently dressed for a night out at Movida – faded jeans, HermÃ¨s belt, Ralph Lauren polo shirt, pastel suede HermÃ¨s driving shoes and bronze tint aviators – roll out and head off into the dark green and brass of Harrods for some late-night shopping. :
This is Crown Prince Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, flamboyant petrolhead son of the multibillionaire HRH Sheikh Rashid Bin Humaid Al Nuaimi of Ajman. Ajman, in case you didn’t know (I certainly didn’t), is the smallest emirate in the United Arab Emirates but has grand plans to become a mini Dubai. RRR is the banner for the Crown Prince’s vast portfolio of orange and black super-cars – it stands for Rich in Real Estate Resources. :
And the most beautiful camel in the world is…..?: :
The world-wide “camel beauty” contest, a week-long event in the U.A.E., is underway. : Before you laugh, realize the owner of the winner will take home $10 million USD.: :
Remember the story last week of the $11 million Christmas tree, draped with gold, silver, and gemstones at the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi?:
There is this follow-up:: The hotel says it now regrets the Christmas tree, however,: : the translation doesn’t make it clear if it is sorry the display is glitzy to the point of being obscene, or if it is apologizing to the Muslim locals for acknowledging travelling infidels.
Here is Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi, the world’s largest indoor theme park.
And finally, here is the list of the World’s Richest Arabs, published this week.: Number one on the list, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, may be familiar to you because he owns 7% of Newscorp, which owns Fox News.:
Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Al Saud:
Bin Talal, the Saudi banking and finance mogul, in 2010 topped the Arabian Business Rich List for the world’s 50 richest Arabs for the seventh consecutive year as overall wealth of the list’s entries jumped 18% to $245 billion.:
The Arab Rich List, which was published Sunday by Arabian Business, surveys Arabs who made their money through business dealings and deliberately excludes royalty unless their wealth was accumulated through business activities.:
Prince Alwaleed, who is chairman of Kingdom Holding , saw his wealth rise to $20.4 billion in 2010 from $18 billion a year ago, putting him ahead of Saudi’s Sheik Mohammed bin Issa Al Jaber, who retained second spot as he boosted his net worth to $12 billion this year from $9.7 billion a year ago, dealing in travel and hospitality.:
After reading all this, do you agree with me that the “class warfare” in Congress about how much to tax wealthy people is a wasted, misplaced effort?
DRILL DRILL DRILL.
Abu Dhabi Rich Pay Millions for Camels While Much of Arab World is Poor
Burj Dubai is Finished, But at What Environmental and Economical Advantage?
Will Abu Dhabi’s Al Reem Island be Only a Playground for the Rich?
