the Bernie Madoff "victims"

January 18th, 2009 at 06:08 pm

I was watching the Suze Orman show last night and she had one of Bernie Madoff's victims on. While she has every right to be upset....they lost $5 million dollars!....I am finding it harder and harder to feel sorry for these people. This couple, like so many others had darn near everything invested with this guy, how dumb was that? I mean really. And as the conversation wore on, it turned out that her husband was still working and they made $300,000 a year, they live in a $2 million home that's paid for and they still have $200,000 in the bank. They are in no danger of hitting the skids. Of course the husband is 75, but even if he retired tomorrow, couldn't they sell the house, buy another great home for $1 million dollars and still have a mill left over? Sheesh......
