Looks like Judge Darrow was burnt out.
Or who knows, as some others have hinted at, maybe something more nefarious was going on.
But many many people have gotten far harsher sentences for a lot less.
And who knows how much of a reduction Ray's attorney's are going to be able to get on appeal.
The reality is that Ray could easily have a few million in valuables socked away under the mattress from the Oprah fame that Oprah gave James Ray. Who knows where that money ended up.
cosmic connie also talks about Joe Vitale and his Story of the woman who he says is going to make 50 million a month from an oil find on her property.
This is simply a fabricated story by Joe Vitale. Made up out of thin air.
Vitale sells "Miracle Coaching" which means he sells people on Magical Thinking, like thinking they are going to make the biggest finding of domestic oil in their backyard and become a billionaire by Magick.
Joe Vitale encourages those who he is trying to extract cash from, to engage in delusional magical thinking, like a deluded gambler at a casino.
Then Joe Vitale hopes he can liberate that money from their purse.
Its a brazen obvious scam, and sadly some fall for it.
Vitale mentions his stupid Ego-car constantly, as that makes it a tax write-off, the car could even be leased.
But he is targeting people who think driving an expensive car will make others respect them.
Joe Vitale is going to end up like he started. Dead broke.
He could even be broke right now, trying to prop up his lifestyle.
Many of these low level New Wage hucksters like a Joe Vitale, are technically broke, and everything is just a cheap facade.
