My Comments: This is too funny. I can’t wait to collect the whole set.
Madoff Gets Trading Card in Scammer Set
My Comments: The crook actually makes somebody a few bucks. A Queens New York construction worker used the Bernie Madoff’s prison number to play the lottery and won $1,500! I love the last line of the article “One thing he’s not going to do with the money is invest it in the stock market. He’s not that crazy.”
My Comment: In a recent speech, President Obama said “Chrysler’s situation is more perilous, and the government will give the company 30 days to overcome hurdles to a merger with Fiat SpA, the Italian automaker. If they are successful “we will consider lending up to $6 billion to help their plan succeed.”
I have seen this scenario before; Britney Spears got drunk in Vegas and did a shotgun marriage. I have no reason to think Chrysler getting hitched will end differently.
My Comments: President Obama stated he is concerned that too many loopholes exist and too many people are cheating the system. Ahhhh. I guess the President has pretty good knowledge of this problem since the running total of staff members with tax problems is running pretty high.
On a serious note, this could be a good thing if AMT gets overhauled. You should remain skeptical. When a President announces intentions to “rebuild the tax code” it ends up looking more like a band aid.
My Comments: Madoff makes a $20K gift to a kids trust fund, then breaches his fiduicary duties and steals nearly $460K from the trust.
