57. PFFFFFFT. Bernie defrauded fellow rich guys.

Jan 2012

Wall St and the Mortgage industry fleeced trillions of wealth from the millions of Nickeled and Dimed.

That's why Bernie's in jail and the other billionaires . . . . remained billionaires. Bit easier to prove crimes when you're a specialist.

Rule #1 among the wealthy: Don't step on your fellow club member's toes.

That rule is the reason we don't have Universal Health Care in this country.

Just one more reason why I hate Apple and its products n/t Tansy_Gold Jan 2012 #1
