The Gov. Blagojevich nonsense, and this Bernard Madoff character. Now, for my money Madoff is one disgusting human being. Swindling millions upon millions from people and charities. This guy needs to be hung from his toes by piano wire.
But what troubles me about this Madoff case is, if the Almighty Federal Government thinks the people he stole from should get a bailout. From reading this story, it seems we may just be doing that at some point.
U.S. District Judge Louis L. Stanton ordered that clients of Madoff’s private investment business seek relief under a federal statute created to rescue cheated investors. Stanton also ordered that business be liquidated under the jurisdiction of a bankruptcy court and named attorney Irvin H. Picard as trustee to oversee that process.
One thing I find extremely amusing is these Federal Prosecutors using statements like “scouring through records to learn the scope of what may be the biggest Ponzi scheme ever in the United States.” Here’s a newsflash for you Federal Drones, your Tax, and Socialist Security systems are the biggest Ponzi schemes known to man.I would even lay down a bet that Josef Stalin is blushing at your “Ponzi” scheme. But I digress.
To the victims of this despicable waste of human life, as sorry as I am for what has happened to your investments, I don’t believe you should be getting a bailout. Why are your investments, regardless how they were used, more important than mine? Because you are a bunch of Wall Street, and Country Club big-shots? What makes you think that, you’re “to big to fail”? Your money is as green as mine.
Again, I am sorry for this to be happening to all of you, but I am going to respectively say No, You may not collect any money from me. But, I’m sure some disgusting Federal Leech will try to tell me other-wise.
Update: This Madoff scumbag gets house arrest, instead of going to Jail. House arrest?! This guy needs to be thrown into the 5th Circle of Hell.
