- Question:-What do you think of the Bernie Madoff 150 year sentence?
What do you think of Bernie Madoff's sentence? He has been sentenced for 150 years, the maximum. Is it long enough? Too short? Should there be other things that should happen like liquidating any & all assets? Or do you think that he should have rec'd some other sort of sentence? What do you think?

- Question:-Is Bernie Madoff getting sent to a prison similar to Club Fed?
My father said something about Bernie Madoff is going to prison similar to a country club and he's gonna be able to sip coffee and play pool.
Is this true?
Answer:-Not if the US Marshal's Service and Bureau of Prisons has their way(as well as those he swindled!)...
He'll likely go to the "Supermax" federal prison-from-hell in the southern Colorado city of Florence(not far from the Colorado State Fair complex in nearby Pueblo)...
Just think:23 1/2 hours in a 8' x 8' cell, w/ NO windows, the SAME crap that "America's Meanest Sheriff"(Phoenix's Joe Arpaio) feeds HIS inmates(you know, moldy bread, stale bologna, rotten milk, and non-recycled TOILET WATER!...NO mail, NO phone allowances, NO visitors ANYTIME!...NO TV/radio, NO light in the cell, NO bed, just a hole in the floor to "go potty", repeated strip searches at ANY time!
Trust me, he'll LOOOOVE it there!
Knowing him, however, he'd rather go to "Club Fed" near the California city of Lompoc(near Vandenberg AFB)...but that WON'T happen!
- Question:-How is what our government is doing now any different than what Bernie Madoff did?
The government is running a similar ponzi scheme, cooking the books, hiding the real numbers and have bankrupted the nation. We can't afford ANY NEW PROGRAMS because we can't even fund the old ones...The government is Bernie Madoff times trillions.
Answer:-Congratulations you got it!!!
The only difference is our government does it under color of law( unconstitutional as it is) and force you to pay up or go to jail or lose personal property.
Bernie was in competition with them and the government does not like it so Bernie went for a boat ride, so to speak.
There is no difference except the members of congress swore an oath to support and defend the constitution which they break that oath every day and keep getting elected and Bernie did not.
