    HOLY. SH*T. The House of Saud is just…f*ck. WOW!

    And our “leadership” (conservative OR otherwise it would seem) here in America are falling over themselves to KISS THEIR F*CKING *SSES! Shouldn’t really come as a SURPRISE given that their plutocratic values probably mean that the Crown Prince of the House of Saud is like the equivalent of the plutocrat Pope to them. Yes, money CLEARLY gets distributed based on MERIT–who can believe THAT f*cking lie, really, ANYONE, when you have the SCuM OF THE EARTH as far as human rights are concerned with TEN TIMES THE WEALTH of the next closest (the Waltons) family.

    Now GRANTED, it’s A LITTLE misleading because the Waltons are what, six remaining heirs, whereas the wealth of the House of Saud is spread out over thousands of princes (as the article mentions), so if you adjusted for family size over which that wealth is distributed that might change the rankings or at least close some of the gaps, but STILL! HEINOUS! Are we going to reach a day soon where we have to break in the term TRILLIONAIRE? Because THAT won’t be a OMINOUS milestone in the human story…
