IT'S A JUNGLE OUT THERE - for sure.
I recently cost myself a TON of money because I didn't read a financial document but signed it. I was relying on my attorney (dumb me) and trusted my advisors. (dumber me).
For this indiscretion, I was shown NO MERCY by the court, nor the individuals who tricked me into signing it. I didn't get a "get out of jail free" card. THEY DID.
Seeing what Del. Dawn Adams is going through - didn't read the bill she co-sponsored - I can relate - but as our legal system taught me: ignorance is no excuse. Suck it up, baby. Who do you think you are, anyway - to play with the big-boys?
I was told I am a savvy businesswoman and should be held to a higher accountability. The attorneys who cheated me were not responsible. They were just doing what criminals do. I feel like the woman who was raped because she wore a short skirt.
I remember "Bob" Governor Robert McDonnell's trial, the Judge said the Governor of VA should be held to a higher standard and his naivete was not an excuse. Even though he didn't do anything wrong (the Judge's words) - the legal system had to make an example out of him. Give me a break. Literally. NOPE.
Criminals are not accountable. They are "EXPECTED" to practice their art of being criminals. But the victims - beware. Christians beware. Honest people beware. If you have money - beware. You are legal bait for criminal minds to practice their art of being criminals - on you. And "they" have more rights than you.
BE SAFE ~ BE WELL ~ BE HAPPY IT'S A FREAKING JUNGLE OUT THERE
PS Read everything before you sign. I do ... now.
