A World of F**king Cheaters...

eth⋅ics [eth-iks]
–plural noun
(used with a singular or plural verb) a system of moral principles: the ethics of a culture.
the rules of conduct recognized in respect to a particular class of human actions or a particular group, culture, etc.: medical ethics; Christian ethics.
moral principles, as of an individual: His ethics forbade betrayal of a confidence.
(usually used with a singular verb) that branch of philosophy dealing with values relating to human conduct, with respect to the rightness and wrongness of certain actions and to the goodness and badness of the motives and ends of such actions.
Compare axiological ethics, deontological ethics.
Origin: 1400–50; late ME ethic + -s 3 , modeled on Gk tà ēthiká, neut. pl.
Synonyms:2. See moral.

Currently, ethics, the existence of, and its acknowledgment, fades into obscurity, especially if mixed with copious amounts of power, fame, and financial gain. But when my UPS guy quotes Sun Tzu's, "keep friends close, but enemies closer,"(he probably heard it from Michael Corleone) line, something is amiss.

Is this nation's collective consciousness overrun with distrust, fear, and paranoia?

You be the judge as I roll out the carpet for A World of F**king Cheaters (in no particular order):

George L. Theodule

From Haiti, with love...and twenty three million of your hard-earned savings in his pocket...known as S.Florida's Mini-Madoff. Read all about Papa fraud below:

Bernie Madoff

If you don't know his exploits already...I rechristen you, "Bubble Boy/Girl". There are fifty to sixty billion reasons why he's single-handedly "out-Ponzied," Ponzi. Here's a new take on Madoff, courtesy of Madoff's secretary via Vanity Fair:

Sir Allen Stanford

Cricket's Mack Daddy, dazzled Antigua with his generosity. Stanford built a state of the art cricket field, spearheaded job development (via his commercial bank) and lucrative real estate development deals that lulled the former British colony asleep. Arguably one of the Caribbean's most corrupt islands (home of USSR ex-pats, off-shore banking, gambling and drug trafficking)...had no problem accepting the spoils of his alleged multi-billion dollar Ponzi scheme. His system pimping's described below:


Steroids. Nuff-said.
Whether you agree with steroids in sports or not, his bitchassness cheated on his wife, helped Madonna cheat on her husband, and if his punk-ass sits across me during a spades game, I'm going Bush on him with a preemptive strike.

Cheater! Danny Pang

Mr. Hand-Man (an "Enter the Dragon" reference) is Taiwan's Ponzi broker based in Cali. No stranger to lawlessness...ex-wife suspiciously murdered, his stepson sues Pang for life insurance proceeds resulting from the wife's death, siphoned funds from a former partner, all documented. His investment company supposedly used life insurance and real estate time shares to bolster client returns. Instead, private jets and a company sponsored Vegas trip occur. When no life insurance or real estate deals materialized, Pang openly admits scheme to an employee. Ping-Pang got served when the SEC recently busted him on alleged fraud charges.

Cheater! Ramalinga Raju

This world famous financial chef's specialty isn't curry...he cooks books. Mr. Raju inflated outsourcing computer company Satyam Inc.'s figures larger than India's Gross Domestic Product...okay, that's a stretch, but Mr. Rama-lama ding-dong somehow made one billion dollars magically appear on Satyam's books. Now he's in hot water:

Nicholas Cosmo

Greed is not-so-good in Long Island, NY. Cosmo allegedly nicked three hundred and seventy million dollars from investors who fell for promises of forty-eight to sixty percent gains in ninety days. One thing I can say for Cosmo is he certainly knows how to match.,8599,1874283,00.html

Norman Hsu

This Grecian formula dude's alleged sixty million dollar Ponzi scheme involved promising exorbitant returns to investors funding his so-called short-term small business financing. To disguise his scheme and raise his profile (two great attributes which go great together), he encouraged investors to donate to various presidential campaigns. Unfortunately, it didn't help. Hsu, fell prey to the authorities.

Barry Bonds

Arguably the best professional ballplayer ever...on steroids...may have been the best without them too. Dude, I was on your side for a minute, but I just don't're the best player in the game, the head of Balco (aka, 'roids incorporated) basically implicates you as the Grand Poobah of steroid use...and you still act like you can change water into wine (retire already-no one's gonna sign you). Plus, this might be a stretch, but you're hiding something...

Sammy Sosa &
Mark McGwire

Corked bat, steroid accusations, mysterious loss of English language mastery during a Senate subcommittee on steroid use...Sammy Sosa has done it all, while bopping 609 home runs...Partner-in-crime Mark McGwire bashed 583 home runs...used androstenedione to mask his steroid use, and subsequently lost his grasp of the English language as he pleaded the fifth when a Senate subcommittee inquired about his HGH and steroid use...feel free to read about both below:

Cheater!Roger Clemens

If Roger the Artful (truth) Dodger is one thing, he's consistent. Whether it's racist remarks concerning S.Koreans and Japanese during the 2006 World Baseball Classic, tossing a broken bat at the NY Mets Mike Piazza during the 2000 World Series, wishing Hall-of-Famer Hank Aaron was still in baseball so he crack him in the skull, adultery, his pregame ritual of rubbing Ben-Gay on his shriveled, steroid ravaged sperm sacs after a hot bath, denying his alleged HGH and steroid use to a Congressional committee, despite an Everest-sized mountain of evidence, need I go on (this is tiring)...he's consistently a self serving, egomaniacal asshole. Click below for more on this class act:


This list, despite its length, can go on, on, and on, 'til the break of dawn. You know most of these people. Unnamed are suspect folks, like the nonperforming CEO/Managing Director of your company, or the senior executive who you can't quite figure out what their function/purpose is, the various commercial entities who charge their consumers more for less service (NYC Metro Transit Authority, anyone?)...if you had all day, I could continue. We're mired in land of the free, and the home of the cheat.

Despite the global scope...each of the above fools were in some way shape or form, educated, trained, or influenced by the good ol' USA.

Surprise, surprise, surprise!

Don't worry UPS guy...I peeped you eying my girl, so I'm tying you to my friggin' ankle. Just keeping my enemies closer, aiight?
