Set forth below is the text of a recent comment that I put to the discussion thread for another blog entry at this site:
Please post just one quote, from the thousands of people you’ve emailed, that specifically says they fear buy-and-hold goons. Come on, you said many people have told you that verbally. Surely at least one must have written it down.
That’s the entire web site, Anonymous.
The question is not how much evidence I have. I have a mountain of evidence.
The question is how ordinary people — the people whose lives are in the process of being destroyed by the massive act of financial fraud — respond to that evidence.
Today, those people see themselves as being ahead or at least not down by too much. So those people either support the con or at least do not feel strongly enough opposed to it to do something about the abusive stuff.
Will those people turn on the Buy-and-Holders following the next price crash? I believe they will.
But you are not going to come clean just because I believe that. You will be willing to come clean only when your prison sentence is announced and you see clearly the consequences of participating in a massive act of financial fraud. We are not there yet today. And you cannot bear to see the massive con come to an end (that would mean going to prison too even if for a bit less time). So you are going to hold out until that prison sentence is announced.
I am doing everything in my power to get the prison sentences announced by the close of business today. Everything that I can think of I have done. So I have honored my pledge to you (and to the millions of middle-class investors who are in the process of seeing their lives destroyed).
The next thing I am going to say is a horrible thing to acknowledge but I am going to say it anyway because I think it is important that it be publicly put on the table.
It may not happen by the close of business today.
It is even theoretically possible that it will not happen by the close of business tomorrow. I know that this is hard to believe. But I have been going at this for 14 years running now. My conclusion after working this hard is that it may not happen even at the close of business tomorrow. It might. But I have come to believe that it is at least a theoretical possibility that it might not.
So what comes next?
After tomorrow comes the day after tomorrow.
After the day after tomorrow comes the following day.
My sincere take.
I naturally wish you all the best things that this life has to offer a person, my good friend.
