Discuss: Saudi prince's LA mega-mansion to be a little less mega
Planned villa, staff quarters axed after objections from neighbors; prince paid $12 million for plot
Sounds like the present "big dogs" resent being made to feel smaller when this "really, really big dog" showed up in their neighborhood. Hard to seriously flaunt your ten million dollar home when a 100 million home commands all attention. Can only imagine the medical caregivers are working overtime counseling to and passing out pills for the overly stressed regarding this shocking development. How the rich can suffer!”
Go back 2 generations and this "prince" would have been in a tent, eating goats and living a hand to mouth existence. Amazing what money can buy. Too bad it can't buy class or integrity.
Instead of educating and helping the people of his country, this thug is stealing the wealth and hedging against the inevitable collapse of his family's fortunes.
The Sauds are nouveau riche trash who hold out one hand for oil money and support the Wahabi extremists with the other. They keep their people in ignorance and the stone age and laugh at us all the way to the bank.
They better get used to LA. When the oil runs out, they will not be welcome back in sandland.”
What self-respecting union construction worker would even consider building such a monument to conspicuous consumption which benefits one of America's most insidious "allies" anyway? That's why the rich need imported, non-union builders; and the US can't legalize deportation. When the rich run the show, the poor still suffer.
Pampered princes need shacks outside their own country should the Saudis ever get up the intestinal fortitude to revolt and overthrow these walking insults to the face of humanity. The uber-rich are quite efficient at causing normal people to be disgusted at them. Envy? Naw, just disgust.
By the way, how hypocritical is it for Springsteen to criticize conservatives for being stingy when he has more homes than he really needs? He may not be as bad as McCain, but who really needs more than one home? Uber-rich aren't uber-generous, surely. Open eyes learn that little lesson.”
That's what happens when fit hits the shan in the sand pit and all them Saudi Royal scumbags run for cover in Santa Monica mountains! I am happy for the neighbors' victory and I hope everyone else would refuse to condone to giving these international criminals a safe haven.”
