Prince in Nigeria
Geez, that title makes it sound like a world wide concert tour by that artist formerly known as ...whatever he was formerly known as. But hey, I'm running late to go smoke a cigar with a buddy, and couldn't come up with a good title.
In Delaware (not that one...but the city in Ohio), a woman was recently sentenced to eight years in prison for scamming friends and famly out of thousands and thousands of dollars.
She claimed her husband had cancer.
She was also ordered to pay back $792,000. Which first made me wonder...what kind of friends and family does she have?
If I told people my girlfriend had cancer, I'm guessing a few friends would send cards. Maybe a few friends would buy candy bars, if I was selling them. Who knows. If I said the candy bar was $2, they'd probably pass.
One thing I thought was interesting about this case is that authorities said they were going to charge her husband Phylip. No, not for spelling his name goofy. But for knowing about what his wife was doing.
He claims he had no idea, so they said "Okay. You didn't know. Well...if you can pass a lie-detector test, we'll drop the charges against you."
And he's agreeing to take the test.
I can't wait to hear about him failing, and all the ACLU people that are so against lie-detector tests, come out in support of him. What a bunch of dopes. I mean...there's this case right now of a 15-year-old boy burned over 80% of his body by 5 "friends". Some dispute over video games.
His friends are being tried as adults. And trying teenagers as adults, to me, is serious. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for it. But sometimes it bothers me. Like that kid in Santee that shot up the school. He was picked on by bullies, and something about him being tried as an adult bothered me a bit.
And some of the parents of the kids are mad at how their boys are being portrayed by the media. What nerve.
Anyway...let's have the authorities give the same deal to those kids. If you pass a lie-detector test, that says you didn't light the fire, but it was so-and-so, we won't charge you.
Although, I shouldn't really worry about some scam a woman in Ohio or boys playing video games and things getting heated (no pun intended).
I'm busy. I've got blogs to write.
And, I've been writing a lot to this friend I met on line. He's in Nigeria. His brother is a Prince who recently died and left him millions. I'm helping him out with that, and once we settle some details...well, let's just say, I won't have a lot in life I'll need to worry about.
