These people are a breathtaking combination of arrogance and cluelessness. It was their idiocy which caused the economic meltdown, yet their sense of entitlement and moral superiority is as strong as ever.They really feel it's their right to order the world to work on their own terms and to their sole benefit, no matter what a mess they've made of it.

They're just lucky the guillotine hasn't become popular again...

So, y'know, no pressure or anything, just something to keep in mind as you head into the voting booth in a few weeks.

Which I'm pretty sure is also illegal. "Vote the way I want to or you get fired"? Those ex-employees may find themselves owning a good portion of his money, if not also parts of his ass.

In cases like these, Christian charity is way overrated.

I hate these fucking people. What the fuck do we have to do to get them to make good on their threats? Because I for one will be glad to do it, whatever it is.

Seems like a real paragon of virtue -- Florida real estate/timeshare mogul, admitted to engaging in illegal telemarketing, found guilty of sexual harrassment in a civil action filed by a former employee...


And he claims to be the real victim. Poor baby. Yes, by all means PLEASE go Galt. You'd find out just how little the world would miss you.

@MichaelF - when they (repub upper crust) make a statement about the non-upper class / welfare cheats / medicare fraud which so clearly seems to be a projection, one has to wonder if their projection isn't rooted in their past activities in similar activities.

In the article, he admits to polling his employess and then making sure the ones supporting Bush got registered to vote. Kind of reminds me of the voter Fraud that ACORN was accused of committing (and subsequently exhonerated). I'm sure if asked, I'm sure Siegel would proclaim, "but they're doing it." Not to mention, the fact that they made sure the Bush supporters registered clearly shows that the responses weren't anonymous. I wonder how the pro-Gore employees did in raises, promotions, etc.

As you point out, illegal telemarketing (I got a call from them on my cell phone), sexual harassment, etc. These certainly don't make me any more optomistic that employees weren't targeted for their political beliefs.

And as far as his dedication for all the little people that helped build his empire, he has clearly indicated a total lack of responsibility or even appreciation for their work in making him a billion dollars.

Who the FUCK does he think was buying his crappy time shares in the first place? Westgate was selling their product to people who couldn't afford it just like Countrywide was. He caused the collapse as much as anyone.

What a fucking idiot.

"Find that Christian charity" within himself?

I am no longer a churchgoer, but I do want to see sp,e robe-wearing man or woman in a pulpit to go off on this jackass.

kind of like a rapist getting pissed off that his victim doesn't say "i love you" on his way out the door.

Very serious subject (actually, two very serious subjects), but that line is brilliant!

I tend to think much the same, MapleStreet -- look under the surface and it wouldn't be at all surprising to find pretty much anything goes with these folks when it comes to morality, ethics...or even just plain legality.

But they're always the first to demand the very protections they'd deny to others without a second thought.

Narcissism doesn't begin to explain...

Gee, Mr. Siegel, if you want me to live, breathe, eat and sleep your company the way you say you do, perhaps you should bring my compensation a little more in line with your own. As it is, I can't say I feel too responsible for the choices you've made with your life.

Perhaps you should choose some other way to live? Until then, all I hear is "Whine, whine, whine."

If that happens, you can find me in the Caribbean sitting on the beach, under a palm tree, retired, and with no employees to worry about.

I think this fucker just said, "Grab your pitchforks, peasants. Come and get me."

Yep, Tata -- that's how I took his remarks too.

The peasants should ensure he gets his Caribbean beach retirement, alright -- Guantanamo has some lovely ocean views, I hear!
