Wow, this is 2 funny. Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has released excerpts from his soon to be published memoirs, in which he calls Bill Gates a backstabber.
Of course, that isn't news to those of us who have followed Bill Gates global crime spree...er, “career.” Gates rivals his pal George W. Bush and Obama as one of the most powerful and dangerous people on the planet. He may well turn out to be the Anti-Christ.
To put Paul Allen's comments in perspective, consider that Paul Allen is more than a Microsoft co-founder; he and Bill Gates are childhood friends. They attended the exclusive Lakeside School for Boys together, along with Seattle's favorite pedophile, the late Judge Gary Little, who taught at Lakeside.
Anyway, Allen claims Gates pulled a Newt Gingrich on him, screwing him out of his share of Microsoft's ill-gotten loot while Allen was wrestling with cancer.
The good news is that 1) Allen got screwed, and 2) he suffered a recurrence of cancer last year.
To put my comments in perspective, you should understand that Paul Allen has probably screwed Seattle taxpayers more than anyone else in history save Bill Gates. Consider the tax-subsidized sports stadium built for Paul Allen's Seahawks football team. Actually, the stadium is also home to the Seattle Sounders soccer team, another Paul Allen business venture.
The Sounders may be an even bigger insult than the Seawhores, because their uniforms advertise Microsoft's Xbox. Do you get it? A Microsoft co-founder turned multi-billionaire cons taxpayers into buying him a sports stadium, then uses a professional sports team to hawk Microsoft's sleazy merchandize. Grab your barf bag.
Then there's that uglier-than-Hell Experience-Me-Jamming music museum the arrogant King Paul had built in the shadow of the Space Needle, Seattle's most sacred icon. In more recent years, Bill Gates moved the Gates Foundation's headquarters to the Seattle Center, too – partially at taxpayers' expense.
So when Paul Allen calls Gates a “mercenary” opportunist, I say pot, meet kettle.
Paul Allen promised to give much or all of his fortune to charity some day. It would be interesting to know if he has invested any money in Bill Gates' investment firm, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. And will Allen speak out against Gates' phony corporate philanthropy in his memoirs?
If Allen helped promote the truth about Bill Gates, it would probably be the only decent thing he ever did in his selfish life. But if Allen's only gripes are with Bill Gates' exploitation of the holier than thou Paul Allen, then his memoirs will be little more than a vendetta, as noted by Seattle media whore Brier Dudley (Paul Allen's attempt to shape his legacy may backfire). Jesus, these slimebags all deserve each other...
