According to the Wall Street Journal Ruth Madoff is going to be forced to live on a total of only $2½M - that's $2,500,000 or two and a half million dollars. I just don't know how the bitch is going to do it!
The Journal went on with obvious tongue-in-cheek (I hope) to offer her ways to invest to make the money last through her golden years. They suggested that she turn in her Mercedes for a smaller version auto and move inland from her current winter home in Palm Beach to a more affordable Sunrise City. (And she'll be able to get rid of some of her expensive fur coats living down there in that climate.)
Personally I have a fund that she can invest her cash in that will make her retirement smooth and comfortable. The bitch could send the money to me and I will guarantee her a 15% or more return on her investment! Naturally I would hope that she dies before she collects so I can continue to offer the same rates to other morons and suckers out there.
My problem with the courts leaving her with $2.5 mil is that she would have had nothing - ZERO - if not for the criminal acts of her disgusting scum of the Earth husband. And she was not an innocent bystander in the Ponzie as she was employed by the firm. She knew or should have known full well what was going on! Therefore she should actually forfeit her entire nest egg and go on unemployment or welfare just like her and her husband's victims are doing! Let's see the stoic worm on line at the supermarket with food stamps.
As for the wonderful offspring of the union of Cruella De Vil and the Modern Willie Sutton the children cannot be allowed to continue unscathed. While they may not have been aware of the goings on at Madoff Securities (I doubt that) can anyone actually state without fear of successful contradiction that their education would have been possible without the stolen funds? Surely they would have had to get a job if not for the steady influx of scammed money.
The bottom line is that the Madoff boys made off quite well due to the father's sins and should not be allowed to profit thereof any longer. They can fend for themselves but must be stripped of any money they accumulated while the Ponzi was in action! Had Bernie been honest his kids may have been able to go to the best schools but I doubt it and it's not open to speculation at this time. Their lives were immeasurably better because daddy stole all that money but IT MUST END NOW!
In order to be fair to all the morons who's lives were ruined by their own greed and their trust in our system no one should be allowed to profit in any way shape or form from the Ponzi. And that means the Madoff children must also pay for the mother's and father's sins just like the investors are doing.
