With Bernie Madoff & his $50 billion Ponzi scheme, Rod Blagojevich allegedly auctioning Barack’s seat, & Sam Israel III-who hasn’t gotten as much ink—to name 3 “solid” citizens-I’m sure these thieves are the tip of the iceberg.
Corruption & greed are the oldest stories ever told, but in the last several years materialism has reached unprecedented heights. Middle-class folks were living like millionaires & suddenly there are thousands of billionaires. Didn’t it seem too good to be true? As The Real Housewives of Orange County hobble along in their Louboutins, there’s a fall-of-Rome feeling in the air.
UPDATE: all these years later in April 7, 2017. Was I right! Donald Trump is now president of the United States.
