    THE PLAIN TRUTH

    Martha may be jailed, stoned, or nailed to the cross, but this will always remain the true story:


    Investor�s Business Daily pointed out that Stewart was hardly an �insider� and that she simply �sold her shares on her broker�s advice� � and did so after the stock in question had started its decline. �The record shows Martha is guilty of nothing so much as selling stock that was on the way down,� commented the paper. �If that�s a crime, then we�re all guilty.�

    • Nice job! Switching ids to try and save face. LOL!

      "You Martha haters are crucifying an innocent woman."

      Nope. Martha was found guilty and is a convicted felon.

      "If jailed, I hope she takes her company to a more civilized country."

      I would like to see her company moved out of the US as well. We don't need anymore companies run by felons in this country.

      "�The record shows Martha is guilty of nothing so much as selling stock that was on the way down,� commented the paper. �If that�s a crime, then we�re all guilty.�"

      Too bad she wasn't convicted of insider trading, or that argument might hold water. She was convicted for lying to the Feds. And that's a felony. If she had told the truth from the beginning, she'd probably be looking at a fine and community service. Big deal. Now, she's looking at jail time and financial ruin. Just what a convicted felon deserves.

    • You Martha haters are crucifying an innocent woman. If jailed, I hope she takes her company to a more civilized country. This country would not deserve such a great and wonderful woman.


      Martha may be jailed, stoned, or nailed to the cross, but the following will always remain the true story:

    • I'm not sure why I'm going to entertain your little fantasy here, but here goes...

      What evidence is going to be revealed that proves Martha didn't lie to the Feds? You keep saying that the jury was wrong. If that's true, don't you think the judge would have granted a retrial? Or is the judge involved in your little conspiracy theory as well?

      "In Martha's case we don't even have 12 sure jurors."

      But we now have one convicted felon. Amen to the American justice system!

    • Well, maybe Connecticut deserved some of Martha's tax dollars. Since it is likely Connecticut really was her principle residence, but because of New York rules, New York won out.

      On DNA testing we have only begun the process of testing inmates. Many issues involved.

      "Thirty-three states restrict the time for post-trial submission of DNA evidence to six months or less. New York and Illinois, on the other hand, will reconsider cases with compelling DNA evidence regardless of when the trial ended. Unfortunately, the evidence from some cases has been lost or destroyed, making DNA analysis impossible."

      But are not 130 plus people entitled to their freedom if DNA proves that they could not have been guilty of the crime?

    • bobdteach, it is time for some statistics with your logic. 130 people may have been wrongly accused of murder or rape with their DNA later acquitting them, but that means that THOUSANDS across America were NOT acquitted after DNA testing. That means statistically, the odds are better than 10 to 1 that the jurys convicted people with the right DNA.

      In conversation, your 130 innocents are known as "the exception that proves the rule."
      By the way, you still didn't answer my reply where I showed Martha was greedy, let alone NY State.

    • Looks like a new class in Logic 101 will have to be offered. At least 130 people in prison have been WRONGLY put there. DNA SHOWED THAT. How did these people get put there?? 12 Jurors decided UNANIMOUSLY these 130 people were guilty.

      DNA testing only works on crimes that have involved physical human contact. In Martha's case we don't even have 12 sure jurors. We have 2 that show questional integrity.

    • Nah. She's already "hired" protection from within. I shudder to think about how she plans to pay for said protection.

    • Yes, I am. I wish I was a Faverolle, as typing is very difficult with only four toes. Following your logic is difficult as well, but I don't feel bad about that, as the humans gathered here don't seem to make much sense of your logic either.

    • ok fine.

      martha doesn't swear.
      martha doesn't lie.
      martha doesn't inside trade.
      martha doesn't do anything wrong.

      The only problem is martha couldn't find 12 people to believe that crap.

      martha doesnt get to live at home (wherever it may be) anymore.

    • Are you really a chicken?
