Random ramblings from my beer soaked melon about politics, religion, sex, stupidities, nature, and any other subject that penetrates the haze. Sometimes crude and not for the faint of heart or people with normal intelligence, or an abundance of common sense.

LAY CONVICTIONS
Money is in some respects life's fire: it is a very excellent servant, but a terrible master.
P. T. Barnum


Well, thank God or whoever for legal precedent.
Ken Lay as many of you know used to run ENRON.
He was convicted of conspiracy and fraud when Enron went tits up and robbed all of employee’s of their jobs and pensions. Not to mention the money other rich fucks invested in the pie in the sky promises of the company.
If you are convicted your assets are forfeit to your creditors. The only trouble is that the people who lost everything they had are at the bottom of the list while the afore mentioned Rich Fucks who lost a small percentage of their investment capital get first dibs, after the Feds get their cut that is.
There is a legal precedent that says, if you die all bets are off and your heirs get to keep the money.
Well Gee, a strange thing happened after the conviction. Ken Lay died of heart disease. Who knew he had one. Makes me wish I believed in Hell.
The Feds are pissed and everyone else ripped off is too, because a Federal judge just ruled that Lay’s conviction is vacated.
The family is happy with the ruling. Duh, no shit. They just sucked up 44 Million of the money he stole.
Guess they won’t be going to Monster.com to look for a job now.
My question is was it one too many rich meals or maybe his family really didn’t want to polish their résumés?

I can’t be full of shit all the time.

    So I guess the lesson here is: If you know you're about to die, rip off as many people as you can as quickly as you can. But I guess most people that would do that, already are any way.

    Well fuck... I guess we could rob a bank and give it too our families before we die and it'd be ok. Except my family would give the money back. What's up with his family?

    maybe the family had to spend a few mil on bribing people so they didn't clear the whole 44 mil. i've heard justice can be a pretty expensive exercise.
