The rich always get richer...

To tell you the truth, I never liked Martha Stewart's materialistic approach to things. I mean, who cares if the napkins for dinner match the curtains. Now with the ImClone fiasco busting out on the scene, it turns out she's also a criminal. Lovely.

First it was the Enron scandal where the executives and big-wigs bailed out, leaving their middle class, blue and white collar workers and shareholders to foot the bill. Now we've got people like Ms. Stewart being exposed for the frauds that the rich and powerful always seem to be. Jesus hit the nail on the head when He said (Matthew 19:23-24):

And Jesus said to his disciples, "Truly, I say to you, it will be hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."

No doubt it will be difficult for these people to enter into Heaven because their greed and avarice leads them down a road devoid of charity. They'd gladly step on the skulls of the poor (including the middle class which is seemingly shrinking day by day) to get more. No, I'm not bitter... I just hate being abused for the profit of others.
