Enron CEO

Former Enron CEO (sorry, you can get the name later) says he has not ever lied to anyone.

He made $66 million dollars on Enron stock while employed there.

Why not simply distribute that cash amongst the employees whose damned retirement funds are gone? Not a bad idea, except it's only a drop in the bucket.

Oh! Sorry, this is a bike website...

I seriously doubt that anybody got to be a CEO anywhere without lying along the way to somebody, even if it's only him/herself.

And--who cares about the employees' loss? This is AMERICA! Employees are disposable.

My country is a big ENRON.-

Skilliing, Lay, Fastow and Kopper were latinos-politicians in their other life.-

... just as a certain President of the United States "... never had sex with that woman ..."

Even if the various top ENRON brass are technically not guilty of lying by commission, they definitely have lied by omission. The market economy works properly only when there is a free flow of accurate information, which is why fraud must be punished severely.

Of course, he may not believe he is lying, if he has already lied to himself.

I found this on eBay and thought it was funny.
