The Calvinist republicans say that making a lot of money is an indicator of your virtue, productivity, ability to make the right decisions and various traits that are suppose to "prove" you are superior to those that don't make a lot of money. So this felon must really be a great person but people are just too stupid to realize that the market is never wrong about things like this.

This guy is lucky it was on tape. Had it happened without evidence he would be the one who went to jail not her. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LlFAd4YdQks&feature=related

That is one patient, and zen-like mother fucker. You know she was attempting to emasculate him on TV, and yet maybe the fact that a camera was in his face was the only reason he didn't beat that bitch to the ground, but even still, I don't know that I could have stopped myself from atleast restraining that crazy bitch.
