The balloon of greed about to pop ? Goody, goody !

Reader comment on item: Dubai's Dramatic Drop

Submitted by Denise (United States), Mar 6, 2009 at 20:44

What a bunch of hypocritical greedy-guts those holier -than -thow manipulaters in flowing robes are . All that they scorn and look down on they are trying to use to lure spenders who love places with a feastive and opulent atmosphere to have fun in . They look down on extravagances and ostentatiousness don't they ? Isn't that part of being pious and reverant ?

They want people all over the world to associate Islam with wealth and sucess, but how do their own people; thier average working people ,live ? They are poor you can bet. They want the world to be entertained by color and flamboyance .....are these those same autocrats who think it is scornful and immodest for a woman to show her arms in public ? You get my point.

Well, like they say,the bigger they are the harder they fall, and I can't wait to see that happen. Goody goody !
