    Default Bill Gates pleas for mercy for convicted Goldman Sachs Rajat Gupta


    Gupta was convicted in June on three counts of securities fraud and one count of conspiracy for leaking stock tips to Galleon Group co-founder Raj Rajaratnam, the mastermind behind the biggest hedge fund insider trading scheme in U.S. history. Gupta faces 20 years in prison on the most serious of the counts.

    Ahead of sentencing on Oct. 24, Gates and Annan are among at least 200 to write letters to U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff on Gupta's behalf


    'We endorse the idea of voluntarism; self-responsibility: Family, friends, and churches to solve problems, rather than saying that some monolithic government is going to make you take care of yourself and be a better person. It's a preposterous notion: It never worked, it never will. The government can't make you a better person; it can't make you follow good habits.' - Ron Paul 1988

    too bad Gupta won't be subjected to a no drop hanging. He deserves that or worse..........unless of course he repays 3X that which he stole.

    Gates probably profited by this somehow and he is trying to cover his ass and make it look like a grand gesture on his part to show that Gupta was a good humanitarian--"Gupta's service as chairman of an organization fighting AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria."

    Indians are in an uproar about the Rajat Gupta trial, this will undoubtedly help with his philanthropic endeavors over there.

    He should be hung high. After all, insider trading should be reserved for our duly-elected "public servants" in Congress and to them alone.

    This can't be right. I've been repeatedly told that people representing corporations have no personal liability in criminal acts.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.
