78. the only reason Madoff is in jail is
because he stole from RICH people. Wall Street stole from working people trying to save money for retirement via a Pension Fund....

Wow...Obama told a country to look back at the crimes of their leader???? I missed that one. I probably would have had a stroke if I had heard it.

It's worse than Alice in Wonderland....much, much worse. More like Alice in the cold chains of servitude to heartless and soulless wastes of human flesh.
