Real Estate is it?

Around the Island, different types and styles of holiday homes are decorating the horizon. Namely, KFH , GFH, and Durrat Al Bahrain have hired most of the people I know to bring in the big dough from Kuwait and Saudi, to pile up dirt in different figures. I donno if anyone noticed this, but doesnt durrat al bahrain up-side down look like a scary-killer clown? Anyway, so somehow they bought off the sea without us hearing about it, someone pocketed the money, and now they're making holiday homes we cant afford.
Funny... I thought the alayam propaganda machine said there were a couple of homes that are about to fall on their inhabitants' heads with the slightest breeze?
Dont worry about it poor people.. hopefully with the "government bonus" you can afford a new fan... thats your share from the sea-shore we've just sold to the nice folks over at the Bahrain Financial Harbour... who gives a fuck about the poor anyway...

Here's an idea... if we were so good at bringing in that much capital.... why the fuck dont we start something productive for a change... Factories for example? And rather than beat up the unemployed at the royal court.. we can actually give them semi skilled jobs... hey.. and if we make a few more widgets than we need... we might sell them to other countries... maybe that was what Adam Smith was thinking about when he wrote the Wealth of Nations THREE FUCKING CENTURIES AGO !

And if we make alot of stuff other countries buy... maybe we can afford those nice shacks in Amwaj and Tala and Areen by then....

oops... i think the ceiling is cracking...

no doubt joker... i ventured in to the south of the island this weekend and found lots and lots of empty land. i can't help but wonder why we can't develop something there instead of building these new cities on top of the sea.

Its just beyond me... what value do they bring? The owners (probably most of them aren't gonna be from around here) will profit out of them at the rate real estate is going. We need some serious development planning
