Hey there Lenin and Stalin dig the rich, rich, rich irony of it all!

Russian Billionaire's Mega-Yacht Makes Waves in NYC Eclipse has a crew of more than 60 people and a battalion of security cameras and sensors. It has two helicopter pads, two pools and a submarine. At 533-feet, it remains the largest yacht in the world. But it may hold the title only for a few more months. A new yacht, called Azzam, is being built for a MIddle East billionaire that could be 590 feet.

Your Say

Mayor Bloomberg needs to ban these things. If he is going to save the enviroment from big soft drinks and styrofoam how can he ignore mega yachts.

Maybe Bloomberg doesn't ban them because billionairesky and his entourage spend boatloads (lousy pun intended) of money at the high-end shops in the Apple. Plus, I'd imagine the docking fees for this leviathan would be considerable. Way more than thousands of 32-oz. Big Gulp soft drinks. In the immortal words of Deep Throat, "follow the money".

Man, you guys just don't get it.

Inside that floating temple is a pharaoh.

Scratch that. Not "a" pharaoh, THE Pharaoh.

And what is Pharaoh? Someone who has 10 zillion times more treasure and power than his slaves. If his treasure is only $10 it doesn't matter. As long as yours is 10 zillion times less than $10. Don't you see?

That is why Bloomberg bans your big soda and gets an erection when he see that floating temple.

Obama also has Bloomberg's Disease and there is nothing new under the sun.
