Bernie Madoff

Crystal: So I'm catching up on reading old emails, which means I'm reading emails from April of 2009, lol!


Anyways - I read this blog post I subscribe to from a friend who has some very interesting points of views....


This one was about Bernie Madoff...I don't know much about him, just that he swindled ridiculous amounts of money out of rich people by pretending to be their friend....


Your immediate thought is - he's greedy, he wanted all that money, but how on earth did he think he was going to get away with it??


Then I read this blog post by Gerry, and wow...interesting perspective...he wasn't greedy...he just hated rich people and was willing to sacrifice his own freedom just to take them all down...he wanted to see the rich housewife cleaning tables at a local diner, or similar....and going for Trump?  Wow...ballsy. :)

Interesting thoughts...regardless - what a cruel, cruel man...

Wow, that picture is CREEPY!! I didn't read this article, but I did watch a piece on the news about Madoff, and I'm pretty sure it wasn't just the rich people that he swindled.

There were many, many middle class people that listened to the advice of his cronies and invested their life-savings with him. Totally disgusting and tragic.
