“what’s the difference between california and the titanic? at least when the titanic went down the lights were on.” – jeff skilling, inmate #29296-179, former enron ceo, class A douche bag. i don’t know what it is about white collar criminals but i hold them in the same regard as pedophiles and rapists. honestly, give me five minutes alone with either class of individual and it’s not going to be pretty. i consider myself a pretty lenient and liberal guy, live and let live and all that, but guys like ken lay and jeff skilling are total scum in my book. this is a great documentary and so much of it applies to the housing meltdown. lots of little cogs along the way not doing their job correctly or ethically or doing just their job and not asking questions. then there are the architects and the scum traders who planned the whole thing or actively “took grandma’s money” as they put it. these people are parasites and i have more sympathy for the average death row inmate (who at least has the excuse that he was probably butfucked with a bucket of bleach by his dad) than the average bernie madoff or jeff skilling type a-hole.
ok, i got that out of my system, sorry about all the cussing. a $45 billion money grab from california to texas and i have to put up with articlesabout how fucking great the texas system is?! shiesty fuckers. ok, now i’m done.
