    It is sad to see that in general, white collar crime does pay. A young kid robs a 7-11 of 50 bucks and he sent to prison. A business person steals millions and lives a free life. I wish there was a Dexter for these types of criminals.

    You can check out all of his shit that they just sold: http://www.estatesales.net/estate-sa...i/93023/571578

    Another forum I frequent keeps pretty close tabs on Kevin. He ran the IPT (International Pool Tour) back in the day. He offered the biggest prizes out of all of the tournaments, but then never paid the players, so they were none too happy with him.

    The drama unfolding around his incarceration has just been icing on the cake.

    Meh. At least he sold liquids (or weight loss recipes)

    Most faith healers just thwack the front of your head and say "feel da healin' powah!" And then charge half a million for it.

    Then you can just say in a court of law that its faith, and power of god. Good luck trying to prove or disprove that.

    Morals and this aside - I see nothing wrong with what he or anyone else does.

    I mean it's Darwinism, isn't it? He's smart enough to get rich, just not smart enough to stay legit.
    "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age."

    It's sad that people are so weak that they will go to such levels to believe that jumping on a bed will cure cancer.

    I'm glad this fucktard is in hot water.

    I've had far too many people try to tell me about "natural cures" that were developed by some schlub in his boxers eating cold pizza. Get fucked.

    Really though, what about Oprah then?

    She has had a lot of guests that have had questionable health tips.

    Cucumbers on the eyes, yeah - ok maybe there is some basis for that. Charkra points, acupucnture, sweedish meatballs. How to keep your man, by twisting his ear counterclockwise instead of clockwise. Is any of that worth a billion dollars?

    If people willingly spent their money on it, then its fair game. If people want railcars full of ZhuZhu pets or Playstation4's instead of grain, thats what they paid for, thats what they get.
