    Whose grandmother developed severe dementia.  She was quite religious and always watched the televangelists.  Eventually they found out that she was sending them money about every time they asked for cash (which was constantly) because she wouldn't remember having already done so a couple days before.  She flushed her entire life savings down the drain to those hucksters before she died and left behind nothing but a bunch of overdue bills and debt for the family.

      GoldLine getting spanked. I don't think anyone should take too much joy from seeing older, fearful, lonely people making mistakes like losing their money to these criminals. Making good investments has never been a priority of our educational system.

      I would love to see some of the snake oil sales people like beck called on the carpet, and made to pay for the damage they have done.

        the hucksters accountable - beck, hannity, etc.  as for the libs who let goldline underwrite their programs, shame on them, too.  

        there is such a thing as morality that surpasses "religion" - it has to do with honor and integrity!
