Go to jail, go directly to jail….

Bernie Madoff, Ponzi scheme emperor, was ordered by a federal district judge to go directly to jail while he awaits sentencing.

Madoff pled guilty today to 11 criminal charges. The judge determined “He has incentive to flee, he has means to flee, and he is a risk of flight.”

Justice is served.

And for those who tossed all of their money at him so he could make them richer than they otherwise were, faster than they otherwise could have achieved it and who are now destitute, or as one “victim’s” spokesperson said, “they now have to work menial jobs,” I say never put all your eggs in one basket.

That’s what they teach those of us who tend to work menial jobs.

Since we have less eggs than you people who worked important jobs or didn’t work at all, it was imperative that we learn not to get so greedy that we would turn over our life savings to one guy, with no track record, and risk losing it all, just so we can brag that we’re in with the in crowd.

Perhaps a review of the seven deadly sins –  lust, envy, gluttony, sloth, greed, anger and pride, would be in order here as well.

I believe that Madoff and his investors, probably were guilty of envy, greed, and pride……but careful, don’t let anger get the better of you or you just might end up with Madoff in the federal pen of the government’s choice.
