    Tell the "capitalists" no more Chapter 11 protection.

    Tell the "capitalists" everything they own will be up for grabs should their business venture fail.

    We need entrepreneurs, alternatives to mega corps, and even risk takers. But when a "capitalist" can have six (seven?) bankruptcies, with more likely to come, while maintaining $180M to $220M in cash and liquid assets, something is seriously wrong.

    ^ BTW, NPD Trump is just a glaring and convenient example. The list of misguided Chapter 11 protections is extremely long.

    Trump's Billionaire Pal Testifies That Trump Was 'Disastrous' for Business

    Again...what makes ya think it was good to support T??
    It brings your decision making skills and judgement into question.

    He fucks up. Y'know he fucks up. It's obvious he fucks up.
    You keep trying to scam is why you're in court. But you keep trying to scam with IDIOTS helping is why you failed altogether. :oops:

    Look in the mirror dude, you're the one who bought a pig in a poke.
    Good luck with that... :rolleyes:

    BTW...THIS is what should be happening with ALL associates of T. :mad:
    Justice is inconsistent and slow as a snail in the US. (unless you're poor)

    Business lost TRILLIONS because of this corruption. No joke, no exaggeration, No BS. :eek:

    This reminds me of a married person who
    cheats with a cheating spouse who is known for
    being indiscriminate and a homewrecker,
    expecting discretion and fidelity.

    Accused Houston cop killer found not guilty | khou.com

    This was a big story locally.

    The reports I've read & seen indicate that Soliz had no way of knowing Sgt. Rios was a HPD officer. The jury apparently felt the same way.

    BUT the case clearly shows why our judicial system is so heavily criticized. Soliz should've been behind bars, not out on bond.

    I'm actually surprised that such a despicable defendant was found not guilty.

    People want more police, more courts, swifter justice, harsher punishments, & more prisons. Those same people want tax cuts, & fight tax increases. Guess what? You can only cut social programs so far.

    I find it interesting that they show Sgt Rios in civilian clothing with all his tats out in what I would say is clearly some kind of undercover situation while they show Soliz in uniform.
    That sure looks like the media deciding who is the good guy to me.

    I just realized I put my Rios -Soliz post in Business Politics. I should've paid closer attention and posted it in What's Happening?.

    Only one was a police officer. Sgt Rios. Solis was out on bond for two separate incidents of aggravated assault. This guy also had an extensive prior criminal record and was a member of a violent gang. It sounds like in this situation that he should not have been able to bond out on his current charges. I'm all for innocent until proven guilty, but that fucking Nero haircut deserves the death penalty. Anyone with that haircut is usualy guilty of perversions of nature, like molesting farm animals or pedophilia.

    Easy bonds, & individuals with multiple bonds, is a big issue here in Houston, & Harris County.

    Solis should've been sitting in jail, not out driving around (in a Mercedes).

    Even with all of the negatives against Solis, the verdict sounds right based on what I've read & heard. Sometimes lowlifes are actually not guilty.

    Something else about the case (per Solis' attorney :confused:) : The HPD investigator never interviewed a single witness, they compiled reports, but never went after details. This' odd because there were questions about Rios being in his personal car and wearing a Hawaiian shirt long before the trial happened.

    I'm an idiot.
    I misunderstood the article.
    Been a stupid week for me.
    Yeah, it looks like a bad situation all the way round.
