I wanna know how in the hell this scumbag dirtball can be a f*cking billionaire legitimized by Forbes magazine when he's personally responsible for providing illegal drugs to people?

I know that I always rail against people not being responsible for their actions and I still hold drug addicts responsible for TAKING the drugs, but I'm also holding this no-good son-of-a-bitch responsible for TRAFFICING the drugs.  This sperm-burping gutter-slut doesn't deserve to breathe, let alone be legitimized by Forbes magazine for being one of the top 20 billionaires in the world.  He deserves a bullet in the head, period.  No trial, no nothing.  A bullet then throw his miserable ass to the vultures.  On second thought, I wouldn't do that to a vulture.  Throw his worthless ass into a furnace that powers an electric generator -- assuming that his greasy, slimeball carcass doesn't gum up the works.

I have no sympathy for him and hope he rots in hell for what he does -- right next to Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Chris Dodd and Barney Frank.

Thank you J&T.  I just re-read my comments and I don't think even Category Five would say that there was anything racist in there.

I've learned that people like JR are 99 times out of 100 someone who walks around with a chip on his/her shoulder thinking that the United States Government owes him/her a cradle to grave living so s/he can lie around on the couch all day watching Doprah Whinefrey waiting for the government check to come in.

People like JR cannot be reasoned with.  I would bet, based on what was written there, JR probably voted for Obama (if JR voted at all) and could tell you who won which season of American Idol but doesn't have a clue as to the names of the vice-president, speaker of the house, majority leader of the senate or even the governor of Alaska.

Well he doesn't wear Armani, but he kills for the money and there is a great deal of that going around in that list, not just figuratively speaking. Insurance was invented by the Wise Guys and well AIG.... Just saying.

Actually Armani Dolce and Cabana are the brands they wear now. (bloody clothes).

Well Morgana I think "Chapo" at least should pay taxes in every country he have business going on.
