Breaking: Joke is on all of Egyptians...Mubarak's family worth at least $70,000,000,000!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That number is in bilions folks:


Gamal and Hosni Mubarak are reported to have built up huge fortunes, including properties in London.

President Hosni Mubarak's family fortune could be as much as $70bn (£43.5bn) according to analysis by Middle East experts, with much of his wealth in British and Swiss banks or tied up in real estate in London, New York, Los Angeles and along expensive tracts of the Red Sea coast.

After 30 years as president and many more as a senior military official, Mubarak has had access to investment deals that have generated hundreds of millions of pounds in profits. Most of those gains have been taken offshore and deposited in secret bank accounts or invested in upmarket homes and hotels.

According to a report last year in the Arabic newspaper Al Khabar, Mubarak has properties in Manhattan and exclusive Beverly Hills addresses on Rodeo Drive.

His sons, Gamal and Alaa, are also billionaires. A protest outside Gamal's ostentatious home at 28 Wilton Place in Belgravia, central London, highlighted the family's appetite for western trophy assets.

Amaney Jamal, a political science professor at Princeton University, said the estimate of $40bn-70bn was comparable with the vast wealth of leaders in other Gulf countries.

"The business ventures from his military and government service accumulated to his personal wealth," she told ABC news. "There was a lot of corruption in this regime and stifling of public resources for personal gain.

"This is the pattern of other Middle Eastern dictators so their wealth will not be taken during a transition. These leaders plan on this."

Al Khabar said it understood the Mubaraks kept much of their wealth offshore in the Swiss bank UBS and the Bank of Scotland, part of Lloyds Banking Group, although this information could be at least 10 years old.

No different then our royals...I mean politicians. The difference is, we know that most of our politicians are multi-millionaires/billionaires when we "elect" them to office. How stupid are we to believe these people care about the working men/women of this country? They can not even begin to relate to us in any way. Also, why the hell do they want a job that pays pennies on the dollar compared to what they are worth? Because...they are all in it to win it...for them! They are in the "club" and we ain't!

The real joke is on the American people...

Politicians are all pretty much corrupt, pretty much everywhere, and pretty much always have been.

Why do you think they want those jobs so badly, anyway.

Pretty normal for long time leaders, whether they are dictators of supposedly elected.

Harry Reid Bammys #1 supporter, started out dirt poor in Searchlight Nevada. He is damn near a billionaire now.

Yea, the joke is on the Egyptians, but it is also a joke on Americans, and pretty much any country who has long term leaders.
