80 billion divided by 80 million.... counting corruption

Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak has used his position over thirty years to accumulate 80 billion dollars - give or take 30 billion. Divided by Egypt's 80 million people, that's $1,000 for each Egyptian, in a country where the average annual income is $3,330. [Update: CNN says if it's over $55 odd billion, that makes him the richest man on the planet!]

Then there are his sons who are billionaires. There's probably another 20 government officials who've made 10 billion. Another 50 who've made 5 billion. Another 100 who've made $1 billion. Another 1000 who've made 100 million. Another 10,000 who've made $100,000. Add it all up and it's a massive rip off.

But it's not like we've got anything like that in THIS country. Despite what those conspiracy theorists would say about the revolving door between government and all the businesses it contracts with or regulates. NO! Not this country. ha Ha HA

Keep it up, Egyptians! Get busy, Americans!! Secede from Mubarak Obama's America...
