Clearly if you support that supposition, you are guilty. Time for you to leave the board.'Nuff said.
For your edification this is America, and no one has to go anywhere because you decide so! Perhaps you might look into going to Idaho, I hear there is a guy there named Fuhrmann who holds to your views.

I detest what Bernie did.
But I wouldn't wish what he is going to encounter on anyone.
Shortly, he will be killed or he will strap himself up.

Either that or he'll start giving investment advice to the other cons.

The only reason he confessed is because the market turned bad. He couldnt get new investors to pay the old investors. I'm sure he fully intended on doing this until death. He just couldn't keep it up because of the market. And I'm sure the others involved are shitting bricks right about now. If they arn't there fools.

that's one of the reasons. but the is that his sons turned him in when they found out that he was busted. they probably thought they would be treated with some leniency for cooperating, when it was there turn in the hot seat.

To be honest, if the market hadn t turned sour and the amount of money invested in his investment firm was more than the money people wanted to withdraw at any time then his "ponzi scheme" would not have been discovered.

Then this "ponzi scheme" would not be a bad thing and every one would be happy to receive a 10+ percent gain/year for their invested money.

After all, the security system is based on this ponzi scheme, or is it not???

As long as he could keep paying his investors it was good to go. I'm sure he saw the writing on the wall (with the market downturn and its chances for a quick recovery) and knew the jig was up. He (or his sons) turned him(self) in for leniancy.

His sons may have turned him in..but, how much have they profited off the scheme? Could they be just as guilty..The dad just took the blame..How much money does the family have?

Take your racist rants elsewhere. Admiring Fuhrmann just shows the ridiculousness of your position.
Joey, you seem to envision yourself as having big comment board cahonies.
What are you compensating for----shortcomings in other areas????
Is what you have catching in Yorktown , IN? If it is I'll wear a contagion mask if I ever come near there.
