The old saying goes, "it takes two to tango." This whole scandal with the Madoff- ripoff amazes me! Madoff is obviously a crooked man, but crooked men come a dime a dozen. Whats incredible is that the people who were taken in on this scheme like to paint themselves as victims. The media is portraying them this way as well. (Have you heard some of them are looking for a bailout??) I'm not sure if gullibility is a sin, but there's something a little stinky about greed and trying to get rich quick. That goes for Madoff as well as his so-called "victims." Sure, Madoff is a slime ball and I know some of the people who he stole from were honest folks, but if you hang out with a slime ball, odds are you might get some of the gooey stuff on your hands as well.
"A faithful man will abound with blessings,but whoever hastens to be rich will not go unpunished." Proverbs 28:20
"Poor man wanna' be rich
Rich man wanna' be king,
and a king ain't satisfied...
'til he rules everything." -Bruce Springsteen
